Knoda 0.7 stable has been released

After 3 months of development and testing I just have released a new stable version of Knoda.

Knoda is a database-frontend for Mysql, Postgresql, SQLite and ODBC. Besides tables and queries knoda comprises forms and reports. It is scriptable via Python.

A lot of things have changed, so here are the main new features:

* Knoda has a completely new GUI now, which is much more KDE like (see http://hk-classes.sourceforge.net/screenshots/knoda_mainwindow_kmdi.html).

* A "query by example" GUI makes it possible to create queries without the need to write SQL statements (see http://hk-classes.sourceforge.net/screenshots/qbe.html).

* A SQLite driver was added, thus Knoda has a local database format which makes it possible to store the whole database in a single file. ( in ~/.hk_classes/sqlite2/localhost and has the extension '.hk_sqlite')

* Queries, forms and reports can be optionally stored within the database, which allows a central distribution of these objects (see the menu points Administration/Database settings and Administration/Object handler). hk_classes will create a system table called "HKCLASSES", you should restrict the write access to this table using the privilege system of your database server.

Also many bugs are fixed, particularly reports should work much better now.
