There will be a new release in a few days, but it is mainly bug fixes.
I'm a bit busy with other things at the moment, so I haven't got much time
to spend on Glade. But other people are more than welcome to work on these
features. It is about time we had support for editing code, maybe with a
simple internal editor (for GTK+) and external Corba plugins (for Gnome).
The signals page of the property editor also needs to be changed into
something like Delphi's events page.
