Dear users of both large and small computing tools,
A new unstable release of Guikachu is available.
Guikachu is a GNOME application for graphical editing of resource files for PalmOS-based pocket computers. The user interface is modelled after Glade, the GNOME UI builder.

About this release
We really need to get Guikachu 2.0 out the door ASAP, so here's a new release that's actually a release candidate for 2.0.
* Windows port improvements:
- Icon for the executables
- Nullsoft (NSIS) installer script
* Menu editor preview fixes
* GCC 4.1 compilation fixes
Guikachu uses the GNOME 2 platform, particularly the GNOMEmm and GTKmm C++ bindings. It can also be compiled for Windows 2000 and later, using the MinGW POSIX-like runtime. Please see README-win32.txt for details. To actually create the PalmOS resource files, you will also need PilRC (part of the GNU PalmOS SDK) to compile the .rpc files produced by Guikachu.
