[Glade-users] windows port

Unfortunately I do not have much experience with GUI programming. I am a 
beginner, and I just wanted to try out GTK, but most of the binaries 
compiled for Windows are really old, and I agree with you that they make 
applications look really ugly. I really like the look and feel of the 
GNOME desktop in Linux, but in Windows GTK just looks a little ugly.

For now I think I will just stick with learning Qt, and then try GTK 
when it becomes truly multi platform and ready for the Windows platform.

But I really like the direction in which GTK is going with Glade. Being 
able to save your user interface in a seperate glade file is a really 
nice thing that I do not think Qt provides good support for. It really 
allows you to concentrate on coding the program engine by letting you 
build the UI interface in Glade quickly.

I am wondering if the latest versions of Glade (3.4) and libglade have 
windows ports.  I found this:
but it seems to be outdated.

That's the latest binary I know of. Apparently others have compiled
later versions, but there haven't been any binary releases since the
initial 3.0 release. Hang in there. It's bound to happen sooner or

On a mostly-unrelated matter, since you're using Gtk2 on Windows, have
you found any Gtk2 themes for Windows that don't look like some horrible
joke from the early '80s?
