Release Digest: GNOME, May 21, 2002

May 22, 2002, 05:00 (0 Talkback[s])

Glade 1.1.0

Hi,

I've put a tarball of Glade 1.1.0 up at:

ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/pre-gnome2/sources/glade/glade-1.1.0.tar.gz

Glade is a GUI Builder. This release is for GTK+ 2 and GNOME 2.

This is a beta release, so there may be a few nasty bugs left.

Please test it & report bugs on bugzilla.gnome.org/.


I hope it compiles at least!

Damon
