Thanks to the hard work of Giuseppe Sucameli, the supervision of Martin Dobias, and
the support of Google for its Summer of Code initiative, DB Manager is now available.
DBManager's aim is to merge together some QGis DB plugins, e.g. PGManager, SLManager,
In this moment it works with both PostgreSQL and SQLite databases and it displays the
list of tables, info about the selected table, table data and preview, but also
allows to rename/delete tables through its GUI and run query on the selected
database, so at this stage it replaces at all SLManager.
Thanks to Mauricio De Paulo (mauriciodev), now DB Manager also supports PostGIS Rasters!
The last DB Manager version has support to Import Vector Layer feature by drag'n'drop
a layer from the QGis browser (or even DB Manager) to a database in the DBManager
GUI. The Import Vector Layer feature allows to import/copy any vector layer QGis can
load between different datasources, i.e. PostGIS/SpatiaLite databases and OGR files.
It's available through the QgsVectorLayerImport class and it has just been merged in
See  for an example of use.
Faunalia is committed to support the development of this tool, and other DB plugin
developers are welcome to join and merge their work, it this makes sense, to reduce
confusion for users.
