ANNOUNCE: sqlkit 0.8.6
September, 12 - 2009
I'm happy to announce release 0.8.6 of sqlkit package for python.
This release ------------
This is the first stable release. It features a new interface for the standalone command (sqledit), many improvements and functions added.
We have used pyinstaller to create standalone executable for Linux and Mac, you can download them to use the application and to run the demo.
It's now registered in pypi so you can 'easy_install' it. I'm currently looking for a debian sponsor to upload the package in sqeeze.
A new tutorial is available here: http://sqlkit.argolinux.org/sqlkit/tutorial.html
Refer to http://sqlkit.argolinux.org/download/Changelog for details
The package ----------- SQLkit PyGtk package provides Mask and Table widgets to edit database data. It's meant as a base for database desktop applications.
The application --------------- It also provides 'sqledit' a PyGTK application based on sqlkit that can be used from command line to browse and edit data.
The package has 2 very rich demo suites for sql widgets (the main one in sqlkit/demo/sql/demo.py) and for layout creation
