Extremely nice and useful!

First random impressions:
- going to Eurostat, then "general" and clicking the button to list series, I
get "no series found".
(also for INE-SPAIN and 4349)
I see that too; I'll try to figure out if that's a bug on our end or
an anomaly in dbnomics.
- after having the window with dataset listing for Eurostat open:
back to the window with providers, changing to (say) BCEAO, and clicking list
datasets switches the focus to the Eurostat window, but doesn't update it to
Ah, that sequence of events had occurred to me but there's no code in
place to handle switching yet. TODO.
- The first imported series apparently determines the dataset range;
to import another one with a few more extra obs, the import went fine, but
the obs at the end were just lost; I kind of understand that's how gretl has
always worked, but I wonder if this could be generalized when working with
As things stand you have to think ahead, and if necessary use
"nulldata" or the GUI equivalent to create a dataset of suitable
dimension. We could revisit that, but not rigt now.
- I have to say the multitude of windows that this handling involves
might be a practical problem [...]
Granted. Maybe we need to consider a tabbed window for dbnomics
- In the main toolbar the tooltip pop-up for the database icon has
said "gretl database", perhaps this should be reformulated now that it also
points to dbnomics.
Similar for the menu label "gretl native"
Thanks for testing!
