How many ways for bug hunting?

I couldn't complain about excessive number of bug reports for Kexi. Yes, writing 43252352nd text editor, drawing app or a frontend for media player can be more cool, especially if somebody's coding session is just for fun after boring day at {work|school}.

We can see an attempt to reuse mdbtoos by OpenOffice.org v. 2.0.

KDElibs/win32 Introduced

Yes, first part of my QKW patches are merged with first few (most hardcore/lowlevel) KDElibs directories. Beside Kexi, that's what I am playing with since march 2003. Everyone is invited to contribute.

Total Eclipse

Yeah, it looks for me like deja vu: one day Sun introduced OpenOffice.org, more recently IBM presented Eclipse (development environment). Why I am talking about this here, you may ask?




I am not too big enthusiast of Java and Java-related tools/technologies, even if in ancient times I've tried IBM's Visual Age, for Java and Smalltalk, IIRC. However my work is somewhat related to 1) openoffice.org 2) Kexi (and also more-and-more reusing/sharing bits of KDevelop). So, I've subjective feelings about oo.org and Eclipse:

Yes, I hope so. What do you think about following feature that works database-transparently?:

KexiDB, ODBC and Drivers in General

Anyone who is interested in database systems integration may know ODBC can be usable.

Currently, development of KexiDB integration with ODBC functionality is started. So, I've updated Kexi Developers Wiki Pages with a small research on ODBC in KexiDB Drivers context.
