Glade-- 1.1.0

Application
===========

Glade-- 1.1.0

Description
===========

Glade-- is a backend for glade and glade-2 to create C++ sources (gtk-- and
gtkmm2, any combination).
Glade is an graphical user interface builder for gtk/gnome.

NOTE: glade-- is usable for both Gnome and Gnome2!

Enhancements
============

- initial gtkmm2 support (work in progress)
- glade-2 file support
- combined isInternalMethod with a method which parses SignalHandlerArgs
first
- new shorter Widget specific code (using the property concept)
- Gtk::Image support (but glade 0.6.4 can't handle it, so you need
glade-2)
- GtkImageMenuItem, GtkSeparatorMenuItem, Bonobo_Dock[Item] (Bryan W.
Headley)
- new option '--embed-images' vs. '--load-images' to specify embedding
(in
        executable) vs. loading of images (at runtime) of images/pixmaps
etc.
        [embedding non xpm images does not work yet]
- redesigned menu creation methods (more readable, less code duplication)

Fixes
=====

- non-gnome menu accelerator segfault fixed
- improved xpm embedding
- fixed some gcc 3.1 issues, perhaps the rest might be compiler bugs?
