Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
I'm pleased to announce the first public release of Gazpacho, a
GUI builder for the GTK+ library.
This program allows you to create the Graphical User Interface
(GUI) of your GTK+ program in a visual way. Yes, it is a Glade-3
clone. It is compatible with libglade and it's on its early stages
Gazpacho is part of the Gruppy framework but is not dependent of
any part of it so you can use it by its own.
You can see screenshots of Gazpacho at:

Glom is a GUI that allows you to design database table
definitions and the relationships between them. It also allows you
to edit and search the data in those tables. The design is loosely
based upon FileMaker Pro, with the added advantage of separation
between user interface and data.
Glom uses the PostgresSQL database backend but it can not edit
databases that it did not create, because it uses only a simple
subset of Postgres functionality.
Here are some screenshots:
Glom is written in C++, with gtkmm, Bakery, and libgdamm.
More information is at
- You _must_ save the document, or you will not be able to use
the database that you created/changed. It will save automatically
- There is no way to administer the users.
- The User Level is not dependent on database access rights.
- The Details view should show lists of related records directly
among the regular fields.
- Find doesn't work.

- The version of Bakery that you need to build this release and
0.8.3 has now been released.
- Connection dialog: The connect button is now activated when you
press return in the password entry.
- Data Details: Groups of fields are now shown together in a
- Design: field, table, and layout group titles now have
defaults, by replacing white space and capitalizing.
- Some build improvements. (Murray Cumming)

- Added British English translation (Gareth Owen)
The GNOME System Tools version 0.34.0
The GNOME System Tools version 0.34.0 "The most expensive beer
in the world" have been released.
The GNOME System Tools are a set of cross-platform configuration
utilities for Linux and other Unix systems. Internally they are
divided in frontends and backends. The frontend knows nothing about
the underlying system and provides the same user interface across
the different types of systems. The backend knows how to read and
write the configuration information. The GNOME System Tools do not
impose a new database on the system: they work with the default
configuration files so that configuration can still be done by hand
or by other tools.
Right now the GNOME System Tools fully support various
distros/OS such as: Redhat, Mandrake, SuSE, Fedora, Debian, Gentoo,
Slackware, FreeBSD, OpenNA and PLD.
