Guikachu 0.99.0 "Image of Me": GNOME Resource editor for PalmOS projects

Dear users of both large and small computing tools,

A new release of Guikachu is available.

About Guikachu
Guikachu is a GNOME application for graphical editing of resource
files for PalmOS-based pocket computers. The user interface is
modelled after Glade, the GNOME UI builder.

Catch it all from

 * libXML-based I/O
 * Exporting to PilRC .rcp files (compile with pilrc -H)
 * String resources
 * Dialog resources
 * Menu resources
 * Form resources
 * Per-application resources (e.g. version number)
 * WYSIWYG Form Editor, with drag & drop capability
 * XSLT style sheets and shell script to generate RCP files from
   Guikachu documents
 * Sample file with sample GNU PalmOS SDK-based application

About this release
This is the first beta release of Guikachu, the penultimate step of
the long road towards 1.0. All known bugs and run-time warnings are
fixed, and even new ones since the last 0.98 release have been
discovered. The documentation style sheets and build system are
included and are nearing completeness. A nearly finished sample
application is included.

Since the code base is now 100% frozen, now is the chance to finish
existing translations and create new ones. Some of the existing
translations have only one or two strings missing, so completing these
should be quite simple.

The documentation system uses a straightforward XML format to minimize
redundancy in resource and widget descriptions. If you'd like to
contribute to the documentation but don't know how, just send your
contributions in plain text to the Guikachu mailing list.

Guikachu uses GTKmm and GNOMEmm for its user interface. File I/O is
implemented via the libxml package. Dialog windows are loaded via
libglade. You will need the versions of these packages available in
the GNOME 1.4 bundle (with the exception of GNOMEmm which you will
need to upgrade to version 1.2.0)
To actually create the PalmOS resource files, you will also need PilRC
(part of the GNU PalmOS SDK) to compile the .rpc files produced by
To use the stand-alone Guikachu-to-RCP converter program, xsltproc
(part of the libxslt package) is required.

Beware of bugémons!
