Glade 3.1.1 snapshot
Posted on: 12/05/2006 10:15 AM
Glade 3.1.1 has been released:
This is the second snapshot of the 3.1 series (keeping in sync with gnome 2.17.3). As I mentioned in the 3.1.0 announcement, we are doing a big UI overhaul in this release cycle so we are eager to hear any comments people have about the UI, we need your critical eye for detail to help model a good and usable interface that will hopefully meet everyones needs.
I'm happy to say there's been steady development and we're sure you'll like what's on the menu
What is Glade ?
Glade is a RAD tool to enable quick easy development of user interfaces for the Gtk+ toolkit and the GNOME desktop environment. The user interfaces designed in Glade are stored in XML format, enabling easy integration with external tools. In particular libglade can load the XML files and create the interfaces at runtime. The DTD for the XML files is included with libglade, and is also at http://glade.gnome.org/glade-2.0.dtd.
Other tools are available which can turn the XML files into source code in languages such as C++, Perl and Python.
