From: Thien-Thi Nguyen
Subject: EDB 1.28 available

release notes:

  a little more slack for .edb ":EDB ", a refcard, some bugfixes.
  things are stabilizing enough to start thinking about EDB 2...


README excerpt:

  This directory contains EDB, the Emacs Database.
  EDB was written by Michael Ernst <address@hidden>,
  and is being maintained by Thien-Thi Nguyen <address@hidden>.

NEWS excerpt:

  - 1.28 | 2007-05-29
    - Bugfix: C-h m (describe-mode) no longer throws error
        Previously, `C-h m' in either Database View or Database Edit
        mode would throw a "Symbol's function definition is void" error.
        This bug was introduced in EDB 1.26.
    - Bugfix: displayspec can handle multiple options
        Previously, the displayspec `\id,width=5,right-justify' would
        render the field `id' without any padding whatsoever.  This was
        due to a bug in `right-justify' handling as well as a more
        general (regexp-related -- surprise, surprise) problem handling
        multiple options.  These are now fixed.
    - Dropped items announced in EDB 1.27 NEWS (see below)
      - Support for FOO-separator variables in edb-t-timedate1.el
      - Six functions
        (internal)      database-recordfieldspec
        (internal)      database-recordfieldspec-type
        (internal)      database-set-recordfieldspec
        (spurious)      db-tagged-rrfr-hooks
        (spurious)      db-tagged-wrfr-before-hooks
        (spurious)      db-tagged-wrfr-after-hooks
    - Control file can start w/ comments and blank lines
        The text ":EDB " used to be expected at the very beginning of
        the buffer; now, any preceding comment and blank lines are
        skipped w/o error.  See examples/null.edb for an example.
    - New Database Summary mode keybinding: `S' now runs `db-sort'
    - New documentation: refcard
        Erich Wälde contributed refcard.tex (source for,
        in the doc/ subdir.
    - New command: edb-interact
        Actually, this is just `edb-EXPERIMENTAL-interact' renamed; the
        old name is a now an alias, to be removed for EDB 1.29.
    - Maintenance uses GNU Autoconf 2.60
tarball, examples, etc. in dir:
