as you probably know, DaDaBIK now supports SQLite. Since February 2 2001, more than 30 SQLite installations have been registered online.
I would like to have feedback (good and bed feedback) from those users, because I'm going to release a new version.
I also remind you that the Like, disLike & Propose Wiki will still be available for one month. Please use it to tell what you like, dislike and propose about DaDaBIK. A feature selected anong the ones proposed will be implemented.
today the DaDaBIK Wiki (http://www.dadabik.org/wiki) opens to anyone who wishes to express his opinion about DaDaBIK.
Like, disLike & Propose is the title of the Wiki and the aim is to allow users to freely and easily tell three things: what they LIKE about DaDaBIK, what they DON'T LIKE and what they PROPOSE for the future releases.
The Wiki is open to anyone, registration is not needed to edit. If you prefer you can register and login, in that case you can also easily sign your edits.
After six weeks since its opening, one of the proposals will be chosen; through the Wiki the DaDaBIK developers together with the users will discuss about high-level aspects of its implementation and finally the developers will implement the proposal as a new DaDaBIK feature.
I'm proud to announce that DaDaBIK has now SQLite support!
The SQLite database engine has become very popular in the last years and I think its support can increase the user base of DaDaBIK.
Since I experienced some problems in trying to write an ADOdb driver for SQLite3, I chose to use the PDO library instead; this means that you need at least PHP 5.1 to use DaDaBIK with SQLite.
Beyond SQLite support, you can find the complete list of new features, feature changes and fixed bugs for DaDaBIK 4.4 alpha in the change log.
Maybe it's important to point out that the SQL logging feature, due to some problems I experienced with the last ADOdb releases used since DaDaBIK 4.3 beta RC2, is not available anymore.
Do you know flattr? It's a social micropayments system and I think it's a very nice idea.

I've read on ReadWriteWeb that the University of Cambridge used DaDaBIK for the World Oral Literature Project.
DaDaBIK is used to manage and show online a "database of language endangerment levels with references to collections and recordings of oral literature that exist in archives around the world". Here http://www.oralliterature.org/research/databaseterms.html you can see the on-line application.
