guile-gdbm 0.2.2 available

NEWS excerpt:

  - guile-gdbm 0.2.2 (released 2003-11-19)

        Maintenance release; no user-visible changes.

tarball in:

this ends the 0.2.x line of development feature-wise (bugfix releases
may occur as needed).  0.3.x will focus on moving the maintenance effort
from munging C code to munging a schemish interface interpretation spec
(reading C headers) and developing methodology and tools that will feed
other tools (notably SWIG and g-wrap) to produce C code w/o programmer
intervention.  0.4.x will probably avoid C code altogether if possible.

at some point guile-1.4.x, x>2 will be released as "pure GPL" (sans
exception clause), allowing guile-gdbm to be integrated by "./configure
--enable-gnu-gdbm" and/or by using some to-be-written guile-tools
program.  guile-gdbm as a standalone package will then be retired; only
gdbm.h will be required to install and use the `(database gdbm)' module.

probably there will never be a guile-gdbm 1.0 release.
