Hi all,

A bit late, as I was surprised with rawhide switching to F8 mode so soon, but 
here is a headsup, or more a heads after about a big leap in the libgda and 
libgnomedb versions, libgda and libgnomedb in Fedora have long been at the 
1.9.100 unstable / testing version, as gnumeric needed something newer then the 
latest stable and stopped working with anything newer then 1.9.100 .

However libgda and libgnomedb upstream have finally released a new stable 
version and a contributer has been so good as to provide a patch to gnumeric to 
make gnumeric work with this version.

So a couple of days ago libgda-3.0.1 and libgnomedb-3.0.0 have hit rawhide, 
together with a gnumeric 1.6.3 update which works with these new versions.

AFAIK gnumeric is the only user, but if not then please fix your packages to 
work with these new stable releases.

Also AFAIK several potential libgnomedb using apps where sofar not packaged 
because of the libgda / libgnomedb long long testing phase. Now that there 
finally is a stable (most important ABI stable!) release, I expect to see other 
packages using libgda + libgnomedb showing up. When you add such a package 
please let me know, so that I can involve you in helping with testing with any 
gda / gnomedb updates.

Since the 3.0.0 release is not ABI compatible with the 1.9.100 release I'm 
currently only releasing this for rawhide, however if requested I will concider 
pushing this as a F-7 updated too, so if you want to see it there, let me know
