Gerald release 0.2.5

Filed under: database,python — admin @ 3:06 pm

I have packaged and released version 0.2.5 of gerald. This is another minor release with a couple of bugs fixes and one important administration update. You can find all of the details in the CHANGELOG.txt file that comes with the source distribution (or view it here) but in a nutshell the changes from the last release are;

  • Fixed a bug in some connections to PostgreSQL
  • Removed references to database links without passwords in Oracle
  • Converted the package to use setuptools and from this release onward it is installable using easy_install

The last change was at the request of the SQLPython project, if you haven’t taken a look at that wonderful utility yet, please do. To support them it is likely that the next release of Gerald will support SQLite.

Please download, install and enjoy. Bug reports. tumultuous praise or cash bribes to the usual address please.

Out of Office

Filed under: General — admin @ 12:44 pm

I sent an email to a colleague earlier today. I just read the out of office auto reply that I received in response:

“Note: I will be on a holiday until 5th January 2009. Please resend your important emails after my return date as I will delete all email sent before that date. Perhaps put a calendar entry in your diary. See you all when I come back.”

Who said customer service was a dead concept?
