Glade 3.1 UI Mock-up release
Posted on: 10/28/2006 01:20 PM
This is the first release of the development Glade 3.1 series, its a little early - but I wanted people to get a chance to try out the embedding and the UI sooner than later. In this cycle we plan to be very flexable on the UI and hopefully get to try out some different scenarios in action and thus improve the general usability of the Glade frontend.
A bug has also been opened to track the development of the new ui:http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=351548
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.
New features and fixes
- Embedded toplevel widgets - phase one (Vincent Geddes)
- Integrated one window application layout - phase one (Vincent Geddes)
- Architechtural change, GladeWidgetClass structures now swapped for
a GladeWidgetAdaptor object, classes are then generated while
catalog (thus deffering all the OO mechanics to the GType system).
- Fixed "-"/"_" mangling in translatable string comments (bug
363598) (Jonas Berlin)
New and updated translations
- Abel Cheung (zh_HK, zh_TW)
- Francisco Javier F. Serrador (es)
