Guikachu 1.3.0 "Meep-meep! *vroooooom*": GNOME Resource editor for PalmOS projects

Dear users of both large and small computing tools,

A new development 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)
 * Support for non-PalmOS PilRC targets (like the eBookMan)
 * String and string list resources
 * Dialog resources
 * Menu resources
 * Form resources
 * Per-application resources (e.g. version number)
 * WYSIWYG Form Editor, with drag & drop capability and visual resizing
 * XSLT style sheets and shell script to generate RCP files from
   Guikachu documents
 * Sample file with sample GNU PalmOS SDK-based application
 * Documentation (a complete user's manual)

About these releases
This is the first release of the 1.3 development branch of
Guikachu. Development branch means it's all about crazy experimenting
stuff and not about providing a usable, polished product -- so don't
quite replace your 1.2 Guikachu just yet.

New features and improvements:
	* Huge speed-up in form editor. Yes, it's really that much
	  faster. Try resizing a widget in Guikachu 1.2 and 1.3
	  side-by-side and see the difference for yourself.	 
	* Support for label widgets containing multiple lines of text
	  (use the '\r' escape sequence to insert a newline)
	* Nicer Graffiti indicator icon in widget palette ;)
Known regressions:
	* Files from the command line are not loaded
	* Some property editors (notably list editors) may have
	  troubles with selecting the right item after
	  insertion/deletion. Please file bug reports about buggy
	  property editors at

Guikachu uses GTK-- and GNOME-- for its user interface. File I/O is
implemented via the libxml package. Dialog windows are loaded via
libglade. GConf is used to store user preferences. 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
To use the stand-alone Guikachu-to-RCP converter program, xsltproc
(part of the libxslt package) is required.

Beware of bugémons!
