* Backup/Restore: Use libarchive instead of calling the tar shell command.
  This should be slightly more robust and safe, though we were already
  correctly escaping and quoting the shell commands.
  (Murray Cumming)
* Avoid an infinite loop when document loading fails.

  -  Show only the found records.
  - Update the menu item state.
  (Murray Cumming)
* Adjust dialog widget spacing to be more GNOME HIG-compliant.
  (Murray Cumming)

* Replace depreacted GtkHBox and GtkVBox with GtkBox in Glade files.
  (This can cause strange layout issues, but I think I caught them all.)

1.25.1 (unstable):

* Startup: Do not crash when reporting check problems.
  (Murray Cumming) Bug #680411 (Bjørn Lie, Dominique Leuenberger)
* Initial dialog:
  * Fix crash with latest libxml.
  (Murray Cumming)
  * Fix the notebook vertical expansion with latest GTK+.
  (Murray Cumming)
* Avoid a crash at shutdown.
  (Murray Cumming) 
* Add an AppData file for "GNOME Software".
  (Murray Cumming)
* Remove the recent files menu items in the File menu,
  because GtkRecentAction has been deprecated without replacement.
  (Murray Cumming)
* Avoid the glib warning about adding interfaces after class initialization.
  (And therefore require a recent glibmm.)
  (Murray Cumming)
* Fix the build and tests with python 3.
  You'll need to do something like this:
    export PYTHON=python3.3
      (do this before starting jhbuild, if you are using jhbuild).
    configure --with-boost-python=boost_python-mt-py33
      (or autogen.sh if building from git.)
    You will also need to have built pygobject with Python3 support.
  (Murray Cumming)
* Avoid deprecated Gtk::Stock* API.

  When enabled, this adds a PostgreSQL/MySQL choice in the UI,
  as with the existing --enable-sqlite configure option.
  The MySQL support is very experimental and unsupported.
  It might be removed later if nobody chooses to work on it.
* libglom: Added a dependency on libgda-mysql-5.0, because
  libglom always supports all backends regardless of the build
  option.
* Tests:
  - Simplify the code a litte.
  - Test the use of a relationship to get data.
  - Add a test that uses an example with text primary keys.

  - Save image data (example data or static images) in base64 format,
    instead of the GDA format.
  (Murray Cumming)
* Export to po files:
  - Also export static text items, and print layouts.
  - Avoid duplicates.
    (Murray Cumming)
* Examples: Add a static image item to the Project Manager example.
  This is just so that the feature gets some testing.
  (Murray Cumming)
* Tests: Add new tests using GdkPixbufLoader to check that we can interpret
	image data as an image.

  (Murray Cumming) Bug #670462 (alien)
* Print Layout: Avoid sometimes over-scaled images.

* Users/Groups:
  - Example files: Really load the table privileges.
  - Really prevent changing to developer mode for non-developers.
    Bug #669043 (alien)
  - Allow user and group names to have spaces and other special characters.
    Bug #669012 (alien)
  - Limit user and group name lengths because PostgreSQL seems to have an
    (undocumented) limit.
  - Warn if we cannot get the list of users. Bug #669178 (alien)
  - Add tests.
    (Murray Cumming)
* Button scripts: Check and warn about pygtk2 instead of crashing.
  (Murray Cumming) Bug #669196 (alien) and ##661766 (Andre Klapper) .
* ReportBuilder:
  - Make summary fields work again.
  - Add error checking.
  (Murray Cumming) Bug #669281 (alien)
* Database Preferences: Really store the organization name in the database.
  (Murray Cumming) Bug #668836 (alien)
* Field Formatting: Related Choices: Default to showing the primary key
  (Murray Cumming) Bug #668759#c21 (alien)

* Use Gtk::Application and Gtk::ApplicationWindow instead of Gtk::Main.
  So far this does not change anything whatosever for the user,

  generally good to avoid the static data.

  - Allow custom (not related) choices to be translated,
  with only the original text being stored in the database.
  This only happens when the choices are restricted, at least for now.
  - Use the appropriate type of data for choices. rather than, for instance,
  forcing German users to see (and store) 1.99 EUR instead of 1,99 EUR.
* Translations:
  - Offer non-country locales, such as de, instead of only de_DE, de_AT, etc.
  - Default to the first locale in the list, instead of none.
* Added command-line utilities to help with translation via po files:
  glom_export_po, glom_import_po, glom_export_po_all.
* Build: Added several more tests, including tests of the translation system
  and of the iso-codes XML files parsing.

  These use PostgreSQL's pg_dump and pg_restore utilities, wrapping the
  dump and .glom file up in a .tar.gz.
  As well as allowing backups of data, this should make it easier to upgrade
  the PostgreSQL version, which some distros do automatically when upgrading
  to new major versions of Glom. This is possible because pg_restore can
  work with the pg_dump output of an older PostgreSQL version.

New features in Glom 1.14, compared to Glom 1.12:
* Details:
  - Align widgets in neighbouring groups, making things look generally neater.
    (and fix a bug that made the widgets far too wide.)
* Details and List:
  Allow custom formatting of static text and buttons instead of just fields.
* Field Formatting:
  - Add the option to use a different text color for negative values.
    Suggested by Mathias Hasselmann.
  - Add a horizontal alignment option, though we still right-align numbers
    by default. Bug #591125 (Patrick Chan)
  - Allow choices to be shown as radio buttons instead of a drop-down combo box.
    Requested by Frederik Vande Rieviere.
* Many small UI improvements.
* Field calculations and button scripts:
  - Fields values may now be changed like so:
    record["fieldname"] = 123
  - Simple navigation is posible via, for instance:
    ui.show_table_list("artists")
    ui.show_table_details("artists", 10)
    where 10 is the value of the primary key in the table.
