Hi folks!!

We are proud to make our first release of OpenDBXDriver -1.0 version-, formerly known as SqueakDBX.  Now the project involves much more than just a database driver. This whole new project is called DBXTalk and OpenDBXDriver is just one of the sub-projects.

There are several changes between this version and the last one of SqueakDBX, but most of them is about infrastructure: test were moved to a separate package, platform packages and backend classes were renamed, all "SqueakDBX" was replaced with its new name.

To install it:

Gofer it
    squeaksource: 'MetacelloRepository';
    package: 'ConfigurationOfOpenDBXDriver';
(((Smalltalk globals at: #ConfigurationOfOpenDBXDriver) perform: #project) perform: #version: with: #stable) load.

We have also created a new repository for all the code: http://www.squeaksource.com/DBXTalk

The issue tracker is in: http://code.google.com/p/dbxtalk/issues/list

Thanks to Natacha Perrin we have a new DBXTalk logo that you can see in: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/37/dbxtalk46.png
The license of the logo is Creative Commons.

We have also started a Pharo By Example chapter.  So far we are writing about DBXTalk, but soon we will do about Glorp.  We attach a draft of it while it is integrated into the main git repository of the book.
Just in case here is the git repo fork: https://github.com/guillep/PharoByExample-english.

Just to let you know, we have already ported the last VW release of Glorp to Pharo and we have it already working MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle and Sqlite3. We are closing some last problems and we will soon make the first release. We want to thanks Alan Night for all his help and his reviews :).

4 persons of the team are present at ESUG right now and we are going to give a talk on Friday.  We will upload then the slides.

Finally, we would like to thanks ESUG for the sponsorship through this ESUG SummerTalk.

Guille, Mariano, Esteban, Santiago, Gise
