*** 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.

*** Obvious/Known problems.

* 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 0.8.11:

* Postgres connection:
  - Connect to the template1 database when creating new databases, 
    because recent (?) versions of postgres require this.
  - Don't ignore the host name.
  - Added postgres_setup.txt and a non-libgda test to help 
    investigate connection problems.
  - Share connections more, without re-connecting, to increase speed.
* List Layout:
  - Fix bug that prevented data entry of fields that have 
    human-readable titles.
* Layout Design:
  - Fix loss of layout groups when loading.
  - Allow adding of related records (half-finished) in the 
    middle of the layout, and no longer show them automatically 
    in a notebook.
    (It's really time to make this feel like glade.)
* Navigation:
  - Show table titles instead of names when in Operator mode.
* Build:
  - Distribute the intltool files. (Cezar)
  - #include libintl.h in more files, required on some systems. (Mike Castle)
  - Fix Glib::wrap() build error with gcc 3.4.3. (Christian Krause)
