Gazpacho 0.1.0

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 of development.

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 0.8.4


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.

Obvious/Known problems.

  • You _must_ save the document, or you will not be able to use the database that you created/changed. It will save automatically in future.
  • 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.
  • There is no printing/reports.


glom 0.8.4:

  • 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 HIG-style frame.
  • Design: field, table, and layout group titles now have defaults, by replacing white space and capitalizing.
  • Some build improvements. (Murray Cumming)
  • Added Portugese translation (Duarte Loreto)
  • 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.
