                      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:

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

If you like sqlkit and want to help translating, you may find the project on:
