Guikachu 0.11: "Got W?": 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

* Exporting to PilRC .rcp files (compile with pilrc -H)
* String resources
* Dialog resources
* Menu resources
* Form resources
* Per-application resources (e.g. version number, icon)
* Form editor with graphical drag & drop capability to make designing
  forms more easier and faster
* Native font support in the form editor for more precise
* XSLT style sheets to generate RCP files from Guikachu

About this release
Altough this is only your usual yet another release with nothing to
get excited over, it is an important milestone on the long road
towards Guikachu 1.0: every single PalmOS widget that was initially
targeted is supported. This leaves only Gadget and Bitmap as the
unsupported ones, but implementing Bitmaps will also need the ability
to store and edit pictures -- something that is going to be left for
the post-1.0 time.

New features:
	* New supported widget: Table
	* Scrollbar property editor's min/max/value fields are
	  properly synchronized
	* MIME description files
	* Spaces in resource ID's are automatically converted to
	* Widget editors are lazily initialized, resulting in a
	  considerable speed-up at startup on slower systems
	* Some other optimizations
	* New translations: pl (Zbigniew Chyla)

Guikachu uses GTK-- and GNOME-- for its user interface. File I/O is
implemented with 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 GNOME-- 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

Beware of bugémons!
