Guikachu 1.3.5

Dear users of both large and small computing tools,

A new development release of Guikachu is available.

About Guikachu

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.

Catch it all from http://cactus.rulez.org/projects/guikachu/

Features

  • Uses GNOME-VFS, you can load files from anywhere, e.g. from the Web, from an SMB share, from a tarball.
  • Exporting to PilRC .rcp files
  • Support for non-Palm PilRC targets (like the eBookMan)
  • Support for the following PalmOS resource types:
    • String and string list resources
    • Dialog resources
    • Menu resources
    • Form resources
    • Per-application resources (e.g. version number)
  • WYSIWYG Form Editor, with drag & drop capability and visual resizing
  • Flexible, complete undo support
  • Sample file with sample GNU PalmOS SDK-based application
  • Documentation (a complete user's manual)

About these releases

This release is part of the 1.3 development branch, so it's all about crazy experimentations and not about providing a polished, well-tested product -- so don't quite replace your 1.2 Guikachu just yet.

This is just a maintainance release without any significant new features, basically its point is to distribute the numerous new translations.

Guikachu uses GTKmm and GNOMEmm for its user interface. I/O is implemented via GNOME-VFS, the XML storage format is managed with the libxml package. Dialog windows are loaded via libglade. GConf is used to store user preferences. You will need the versions of these packages available in the GNOME 1.4 bundle (with the exception of GNOMEmm which you will need to upgrade to the recently released version 1.2.4). 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.

Beware of bugémons!
