I refer to to an old problem. Requesting  a bundle  of data from dbnomics database after the versions "dbnomics 2.0" is very slow. It seem to be correlated to the reason that all metadata of the times series are transmitted and not only the values. With a newer version of the api v22 it is possible to eleminate the metatdata. See the mail below I have got from the folks of dbnomics.

Is there the the possibility to change the "dbnomics 0.39" in that way which comes with the version 2021b of gretl for MS-Windows?

Hi @Klaus, we added a metadata argument that can be set to false to disable metadata.

It is documented in API doc: http://api.db.nomics.world/v22/apidocs
