libgda/libgnomedb are a complete framewok for developing database-oriented applications, and currently allow access to PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, Sybase, SQLite, FireBird/Interbase, IBM DB2, mSQL and MS SQL server, as well as MS Access and xBase files and ODBC data sources.
libgda/libgnomedb are the base of the database support in the GNOME Office application suite, providing database access for many features in both Gnumeric and Abiword.
This is another development release in the road to 1.2, which will be the next stable release, and which shows a preview of the new features getting into the 1.2 final release. It is not intended for production use, but by people wanting to experiment with the new features and to help on the development. We are though trying to have these 1.1.x series as stable as possible, so things should not break too much
