I am pleased to announce the release of DataBasin 0.2.

-- What's new --
* The DBSoap core has been extesively rewritten. It supports now operation through the usage of the DBSobject. The core subborts describing of object and the query operations now support methods to input/output object arrays instead of just file writers/readers. The core supports now selection of character encoding.
* The Application now sports some new features too, based on the new core:
- "Describe Object" allows to save a CSV file with the object description. Very useful for comparing configurations
    - Select can now do a query all (query in the recycle bin)
- Preferences to select the desired character encoding with file operations.

-- What is it? --
It is a data access tool for, it allows querying, deleting and inserting records. It accesses the APIs through the usage of web services.

Of interest might be its core, DBSoap, which implements the access to the APIs. It is designed to be reusable for other projects. As far as I know it is the only "Open source" implementation of its kind. It is released as LGPL.

DataBasin runs both on GNUstep and Mac >= 10.3

-- Where do I find it? --
Data Basin is hosted in the GAP project:

DataBasin uses the GNUstep Webservices, which Richard extended to support SOAP right for this application.
