This is the second stable release in the 3.8 series.
It depends on GTK+ 2.24 and includes some important
bug fixes back ported from the 3.10 and master branches.
As I've mentioned in the previous release notes, Glade 3.8
is parallel installable with Glade 3.10, if you need to
work with Glade projects that target GTK+2, you need an
installation of Glade 3.8 (for more information see this
Note that in the initial release of 3.8 we forgot to bump
the required version of GTK+ from 2.20 to 2.24 (however
as I understand it does not build with 2.20 anyway).
Hopefully this is not a problem for anyone.
(Don't worry, the other, more anticipated releases
of Glade for GTK+3 are coming out soon...)
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 saved as XML, and by using
the GtkBuilder GTK+ object these can be loaded by applications
dynamically as needed.
By using GtkBuilder, Glade XML files can be used in numerous
programming languages including C, C++, C#, Vala, Java, Perl,
Python, and others.
- Correctly detect the required devhelp version (Javier JardÃ³n)
- Sort objects in output by property reference, ensures a
GtkTreeModelFilter gets serialized after its
'child-model' (fixes bug 657164)
- Fixed crashers when performing "Remove Parent" (bug 657338)
- Ensure 'use-action-appearance' is serialized
before 'related-action' (bug 658497)
- Properly escape special characters while serializing
property values (bug 654609 - Fabien Parent)
- Fix GladeProject to notify "row-has-child-toggled"
(fixes bug 651673).
