The GNUstep Database Library 2 (GDL2) version 0.9.1 is now available.

What is the GNUstep Database Library 2?
=====================================

The GNUstep Database Library 2 (GDL2) is a set of libraries to map
Objective-C objects to rows of relational database management systems
(RDBMS).  It aims to be compatible with Enterprise Objects Framework
(EOF) as released with WebObjects 4.5 from Apple Inc.  It requires the
GNUstep Make Package 1.9.1 and the Base Library 1.9.1.  Alternatively
it is meant to work with other OpenStep-like implementations like
Cocoa together with the GNUstep BaseAdditions Library 1.9.1.  For UI
applications which may want to use adaptor specific login panels, you
should also install the GNUstep GUI Library 0.9.2 and the GNUstep
Backend Library 0.9.2.  These should also work with AppKit.


Important notes on version `0.9.1'
==========================

This release is meant for developers who can help test and contribute
the current code or are willing to test the interface.  It is not
ready for general purpose production code.  Having said that, it
should be mentioned that GDL2 is being used in production environments
and has been much tested in those contexts.

Expect the current interface to change especially with respect to
functions and methods not documented in EOF 4.5.  Even the library
names themselves may change.

With respect to EOF, GDL2 is currently missing EOSharedEditingContext,
EOMultiReaderLocks and the EOEvent classes.  Also we currently do not
support the EOSchemaSynchronization methods yet.  But you are likely
to find many more missing implementations within the source.  If you
identify something that you need, please let us know at
<address@hidden> or even better get copyright assignment for
the FSF and post a patch.
