0.9.4 Status – Anyone want to test the new setup?

For the last few days, I've been grinding away at 0.9.4. Almost all the changes I have so far are checked into CVS. I haven't checked in the VSS AddIn yet, but the obvious priority is DCL.

The changes to the database are pretty extensive, but certainly necessary to bring the schemas more in tune between the different supported SQL servers. I haven't begun migrating the Oracle implementation yet, as it was never really supported and was stuck at beta quality.

If anyone wants to test the new code, it would be much appreciated. I can't account for all cases since everyone has different sets of data. I'm fairly comfortable with the PostgreSQL upgrade. The others (MySQL, MS-SQL, and Sybase ASE) need more thorough testing.

If you want to try it out, do the following:

$ cvs login
{press enter for password}
$ cvs -z3 co -r dcl-20020215-branch dclgw

A couple more things: PHP 4 is going to be the minimum requirement for PHP from now on. Also, I've updated a few of the screenshots showing the new UI style. There's still a bit of UI work to get this style propagated, but I think it looks clean and will provide a more consistent look to DCL.
