The GNU Enterprise team proudly announces

   GNUe Common Library

This is a preview release and mainly targeted at developers,
packagers and translators.  You can expect the final release
within a few days.

We request all translators to send in their translations as
soon as possible so they can be included in the final release.

GNUe Common Library 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 XML-RPC and Pyro clients.

This prerelease contains the following changes and new
features of the upcoming final release:

* [definitions] Fixed indenting of generated DTDs
* [definitions] XML definitions are now translatable
* [definitions] Check attribute values if a set of valid values is defined
* [definitions] Some code cleanup
* [logic] Completely reworked trigger handling code to allow for <action>s
* [logic] Support for "self" parameter in triggers
* [rpc] New driver for the hessian protocol
* [utils] Fixed hardware dependent UUID generation for Mac OSX
* [utils] New tee structure handling library (not usable yet)
* Cleaned up unicode usage, all of gnue-common should now be unicode safe
* Work on format mask parser (not yet working)
* Some performance improvements
* Improved Fink configuration for new version of Fink
