Guikachu 1.4.0: "Lost Ones" released

Guikachu is the premiere solution for creating PalmOS resource files
on UNIX operating systems, and it is also available as Free Software,
as defined by the GNU GPL. "Resources" are data statically linked into
PalmOS applications, and contain information about user-visible things
like strings, windows, and menu structures. Guikachu, based on the
GNOME 1.4 libraries, makes it possible to visually edit these files in
an easy-to-use WYSIWYG way, under the popular GNOME desktop environment.

Guikachu is available for immediate download at

Guikachu is created by Gergő Érdi, with contributions from Nathan
Kurz, Jay Bloodworth, and Christopher Keith Fairbairn. The Guikachu
artwork was done by Basilico Briceno. Source code includes code
snippets by Martin Schulze. Widget icons are taken from the excellent
UI editor Glade, by Damon Chaplin. Special thanks to Murray Cumming
and Daniel Elstner for their C++ hints every now and then, to Roger So
for providing Debian packages of Guikachu, and to all our translators
who made our application easier to use for non-English speakers.
