I would like to announce the first release of PyGDA, a python extension mod=
for the GNOME Data Access data abstraction library. PyGDA is released under
the GNU Library General Public License.
The module is still very much in an early alpha stage, and this release is
mainly meant to get feedback from adventureous application developers.

The module does not wrap all of libgda yet; none of the reporting features
are supported yet and parts of the main functionality haven't been wrapped
yet either. However, I have been using it for over a month in a program that
is supposed to be taken in production within a few weeks, with no problems.
(which could perhaps in part be attributed to the fact that the program only
performs SQL SELECT queries on a data provider and does not do any writing;
then again, maybe not :)

PyGDA needs Python 2.2 or higher, libgda 1.0.2, and PyGTK 2 to build.
To run, it doesn't need pygtk but it does need the gobject module from

PyGDA 0.0.3 is available from and a detached gpg
signature from
