|| ||ANNOUNCE: Glom 0.9.6|
|| ||Sun, 19 Feb 2006 17:26:18 +0100|
With Glom you can design table definitions and the relationships between
them, plus arrange the fields on the screen. You can edit and search the
data in those tables, and specify field values in terms of other fields.
It's as easy as it should be.
Glom uses the PostgreSQL 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, with explanations:
Glom is written in C++, with gtkmm, Bakery, and libgdamm. It uses
Python for calculated fields, with help from pygtk.

* New built-in System Properties relationship:
allows you to show fields from the system properties, such as
the organisation's name and address, on a layout or report.
* The Field Layout Properties dialog (right-click on a field in
developer mode to see the menu) now allows you to choose a custom title
for the field for this instance, in case the regular field title is not
appropriate. This is often the case for related fields.
* Save Field Layout Properties when the dialog closes. (Fixes a regression)
- Fix oddness in Details view when finding. (Fixes a regression)
- Start Find mode on the current View, instead of always going to the Details view.
- Find works again when you start on the Details view. (Fixes a regression)
- Do a Find All if the find is not successful, if the user doesn't want to try again.
* Avoid python warnings when adding new records.
* Stop images from disappearing when refreshing layouts.
