[Glade-users] Glade 3.7.1 Released

Hello all,
      This is the exciting second release in the Glade 3.7 development
series; it includes a long list of improvements summerized below.

The Glade 3.7 series now depends on GTK+ 2.20 and notably the UI has
changed a bit:
  o notebook tabs have been added to navigate through open projects
  o some new options in the view menu
  o signal editor significantly improved

This cycle is off to an optimistic start for Glade. Many thanks
to some new enthusiastic contributors that Glade has not seen for
a long time. And many thanks as well to Openismus Gmbh who
helped sponsor this release.

What is Glade?
Glade is a RAD tool to enable quick & easy development of user
interfaces for the GTK+ toolkit and the
GNOME desktop environment. The user interfaces designed in Glade are
saved as XML, and by using the
GtkBuilder GTK+ object these can be loaded by applications dynamically
as needed.

By using GtkBuilder, Glade XML files can be used in numerous
programming languages
including C, C++, C#, Vala, Java, Perl, Python,and others.
