I can well understand that bonobo can be confusing, especially for the
fact that is not very documented. The good news is that we are getting
rid of it.

You can see the code in the "new_mdi" branch of cvs: note that such
branch is still fairly rough (for instance you can't save files yet
etc). If you want to take a look check it out from cvs and complile it:
note that you should *not* run make install, just run it as ./gedit from
the sources directory.

Some design docs are available on the wiki (, you
are also welcome to join #gedit on gnome to discuss things.
