WOMBAT status

Hi folks, development around WOMBAT hasn't really slowed down, despite the lack of releases recently. We're currently working hard on bringing the back-end data model into a shape that will allow us to add more features to WOMBAT more easily. I'm currently busy writing a svn xml parser that will load the metadata into a SQL database, instead of relying on files like we used to. This, together with a major overhaul of the overal design of the data model, gives us better integration with the SVN backend. A next step in this design will be tracking svn updates file by file instead of forcing a re-scan of the whole data set. Stay tuned for updates.
