*** Glom

Glom is a GUI that allows you to design database table definitions and the
relationships between them. It also allows you to edit and search the data in
those tables. The design is loosely based upon FileMaker Pro, with the added 
advantage of separation between user interface and data.

Glom uses the PostgresSQL database backend but it can not edit databases
that it did not create, because it uses only a simple subset of Postgres

Here are some screenshots:

Glom is written in C++, with gtkmm, Bakery, and libgdamm.

More information is at

*** Obvious/Known problems.

* You _must_ save the document, or you will not be able to use the database
  that you created/changed. It will save automatically in future.
* There is no way to administer the users.
* The User Level is not dependent on database access rights.
* The Details view should show lists of related records directly among the regular fields.
* There is no printing/reports.

*** Changes

glom 0.8.5:

* Data Details: Editing works again.
* Find mode now works, though it's simple.
* Edit buttons are now stock Open buttons.
* Renaming of tables: The new names are stored in the 
  document so you can rename again, and use the renamed table.
