Glom 0.8.37
Posted on: 07/26/2005 06:18 AM

Glom 0.8.37 has been released:

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 functionality.

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.

*** Changes

glom 0.8.37 - changes since 0.8.32:

* List view (and related records lists)
- Instead of double-clicking to open record details, you can now click
on the small Open button on each row.
* Details view:
- ID fields that identify a unique related record (e.g. a Company ID on
a contacts record) now have an Open button, so you can go quickly to
the related record.
- Related fields, with automatic related-record creation:
Really write the new value into the related record, instead of
just creating the related record.
- The default layout is now more useful.
- Field titles are now visible again when there is only one
item in a multi-column group.
* Layout design:
- Don't forget related fields when reopening the layout dialog.
- Change related field names on layouts when renaming fields.
- Change relationship names on layouts when renaming relationships.
- Field selection dialog: Now sorted alphabetically.
- Group names can be changed again.
* Relationships:
- Relationships may now optionally not allow editing of
related fields.
- Allow more than one relationship to the same table.
- Create a suitable title when adding a relationship.
- System tables are no longer shown.
* Tables:
- New tables have a description and a comments field as
well as the primary key.
- System tables are no longer shown.
- Prevent crash when deleting the currently-shown table.
* Added Image field type. (Murray Cumming)
