Over the last few months we (Openismus) fixed several nasty regressions in Glom 1.8 compared to 1.6. The latest release is fairly usable. We really must set up some LDTP testing scripts or suchlike to catch these regressions before our .0 releases.
The Openismus PPA has updated packages for Ubuntu Intrepid, based on Iain Lane’s packages. The official Glom packages for Ubuntu Intrepid are 1.6, which was finally updated to a bug-fixed release, thanks again to Iain Lane.
Work on Glom 1.10 is going well, though it’s largely a port to libgda-4.0.
