Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"PonG is a library and a GUI tool for creating preference
dialogs with a minimum of coding. The description of the gconf keys
and widgets are written in an XML file that is read at runtime and
the dialog is created and gconf magic is done. All you have to
do on your side is listen for gconf changes. It also allows the
preference dialogs to be run from a different program and actually
even from the command line. It would also allow a registry editor
to run the correct preference dialog for some keys. It also allows
automatic creation of GConf schema files, so you can do all your
preference work with a GUI tool."
"The interface should be mostly stable though I broke it in this
release for the translation changes. It now uses exclusively
xml-i18n-tools to do translations. You can check the "grapevine"
module on GNOME CVS for an example setup. I wish to have more docs
on how to set this up soon."
"I'll be getting close to a 1.0 release as well, as I want it
out very soon (original plan was around GNOME 1.4 time and I missed
that, so now it's within a month or so I'd say)"
