ANNOUNCE: Conglomerate 0.9.0 Released

Conglomerate 0.9.0 Released (Widget Rewrite #4 - Now with Interestingly
Different Bugs!)

Conglomerate is a free, user-friendly XML editor. It is particularly
aimed at DocBook, but should be able to handle any XML document type.

This is the first 0.9 release - the main editing widget has been
rewritten since the last release (0.7.16). Please download it and try to
break things (and fix them - patches gratefully accepted!).

The new code fixes a long-standing problem where Conglomerate would
crash when loading certain documents. This has now been fixed (we
believe), so that Conglomerate should now be able to load and display
any well-formed XML document. The design is simpler and should enable us
to implement more sophisticated effects in the future (e.g. table

Unfortunately, whilst it's better than it was at loading files, it's now
less stable when it comes to editing them. There are quite a few bugs
still present in the new implementation - for example, "span tags" are
invisible if present in a document loaded off disk (freshly created span
tags appear as expected). This and other bugs can be seen below a
tracker bug ( bug # 143769 ); please file bugs with editing and attach
them to this tracker bug.

Conglomerate requires GTK+ version 2.4.0 or later
