[Glade-users] Glade 3.15.1 - DoggFood - Released

Glade 3.15.1 is the second unstable development snapshot in
the 3.15 series and depends on GTK+ 3.9.0. ... The Glade 3.15.1
release has been affectionately named after the 1995 release by
Snoop Dogg and Tha Dogg Pound Gang.

After the whopping release of Juan Pablo's Drag and Drop support,
this new release was originally planned to support editing of files
using the new <template> syntax, to support Composite Widget Templates,
but we couldn't resist stepping it, so here are some highlights:

  o Autosave Support (with configuration in preferences dialog)
  o Backup previous revision on save (also in preferences)
  o Configure what types of errors to display at save time (in preferences)
  o Inspector now shows warnings for any widgets which might cause
     warnings, for use of deprecated elements or elements not available
     in the currently set target version.

And last but not least, more DoggFooding !
The following elements are now designed in Glade and use
Composite Widget Templates to define the UI, not to mention they've
had a major facelift:
  o GladePreferences (the preferences dialog)
  o GladeProjectProperties (the project properties dialog)
  o GladeEditor (the main property editor)
  o GladeActivatableEditor (the editor for GtkActivatable widgets)
  o GladeButtonEditor
  o GladeEntryEditor
  o GladeImageEditor
  o GladeLabelEditor
  o GladeWidgetEditor (this shows up in the "Common" tab now instead
     of a boring list of properties).

For more information on Composite Widget Templates, see this blog post:


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.

bold, bold
          lettering is reserved for title labels in custom property editors.
        - New components that now use GtkBuilder Composite Templates (and
have had
          a basic review and rework of their UIs): GladePreferences
(Glade's preferences
          dialog), GladeEditor (the property editor),
GladeProjectProperties (the project
          properties dialog) and custom property editors:
          GladeButtonEditor, GladeEntryEditor, GladeImageEditor,
GladeLabelEditor, GladeWidgetEditor
        - And... many various bugfixes and UI fixes by Juan Pablo and
        - Knowing google's evil text wrapping policy... the above list must
