Glade 2.6.0


Glade 2.6.0


Glade is a User Interface Builder for GTK+ and GNOME.

Glade 2.6 requires GTK+ 2.4, and GNOME 2.6 (if you want GNOME support). Interfaces created with Glade 2.6 will also require GTK+ 2.4 and GNOME 2.6, so if you want your application to work with previous versions of GTK+ or GNOME you should use a previous version of Glade.


Glade 2.6.0 (Apr 14 2004)

  • Fixed trivial compilation problem in plain GTK+ version.
  • Fixed bug freeing unallocated memory on Win32.
  • Updated links to related software in README.

Glade 2.5.1 (Mar 29 2004)

  • Fixed bug migrating old toolbar widgets which meant that widgets other than the normal/toggle/radio buttons were being lost when loading.
  • Use the new GtkFileChooseDialog throughout Glade.
  • Load the gail-gnome module as well as gail.
  • If there is no .gladep file check the <requires> tags to see if it is a GNOME or GTK+ project. Previously it would assume its a GNOME project.
  • Set up GtkFrame according to the HIG.
  • A few other minor fixes.
