libgda/libgnomedb 0.90.0 have been released.

libgda/libgnomedb are a complete framewok for developing
database-oriented applications, and actually allow access to PostgreSQL,
MySQL, Oracle, Sybase, SQLite, FireBird/Interbase, IBM DB2, mSQL and MS
SQL server, as well as MS Access and xBase files and ODBC data sources.

This release marks the beginning of the end of the normal development
process, since this is one of the latest releases before the 1.0 beta
testing cycle starts.
This release also does not include Mergeant, which has been detached
from the libgda/libgnomedb release process to allow us to get a 1.0
version of those 2 libraries for a (hopefully) GNOME Office release
during this summer. Since Mergeant still needs some work to be in
a 1.0 state, we will continue its development as we've been doing
all this time, but it will keep separate version numbers and (possibly)
schedules than libgda/libgnomedb. Once we get libgda/libgnomedb 1.0 out
of the door, we will concentrate on making Mergeant 1.0.
