[GNUe-dev] New release for GNUe-AppServer and GNUe-Common

Subject: [GNUe-dev] New release for GNUe-AppServer and GNUe-Common
Date: Fri, 23 Jul 2004 12:22:31 +0200

The GNU Enterprise team is proud to announce a new release of it's
enterprise application development suite. This release includes:

* GNUe AppServer 0.0.9
* GNUe Common 0.5.6

This release of GNUe-AppServer is likely to be the last beta before 0.1.

GNUe AppServer is the core of the n-tier variant of the GNU Enterprise
system.  To the front end (be it GNUe Forms, GNUe Reports or any other
tool), it provides user-defineable business objects with arbitary
fields and methods. While transforming access to those fields and
methods into database communication and calling of scripts, it cares
about stability, security, speed, and consistency.

GNUe-Common is the basis for the GNUe tools, such as Forms, Reports,
Application Server, and Designer. It implements a database-abstraction
layer that provides support for most major databases. A builtin
XML-to-Object parser and Object-to-XML marshaller are used by Forms,
Reports, and Designer to save and read Forms/Report definitions to and
from an XML file. It also defines and implements an RPC abstraction
layer that will allow server processes to define their public methods
once and have them available to CORBA, XML-RPC, SOAP, and DCOM clients.

The products are available in source form from our website at

Debian packages for "unstable" will been created and incorporated into
the official distribution.

The tools have been tested and are known to run on:

- GNU/Linux (RedHat 6.x/7.x/8.x, Debian 2.x/3.x/sid, Slackware, Gentoo)
- Windows 95/98/2000/ME/XP/NT
- MacOS X (via the available X interface)
- Solaris 8/9
- FreeBSD 4.x/5.x

The tools require Python 2.1 or better to run (Python 2.3+ recommended.)

New features/changes in version 0.0.9:

* gnue-gsdgen can now export arbitary data
* gnue-gcd2sql can now directly act on a database connection
* gnue-gcd2sql can now update existing schemas

New features/changes in version 0.5.6:

* gnue-schema can now directly act on a database connection
* gnue-schema can now update existing schemas
* New schema creation functions in dbdrivers
* SQLite dbdriver working again
* New barcode printing library

Have fun!
