Eric Harlow is writing a book on linux application programming
(, but there is probably still room
for a GTK+ book.

Though, it should wait until 1.2 is out.

Also, one on GNOME would be nice, while we're at it.  GNOME documentation
is actually worse than GTK, and GNOME is big enough that figuring it out
from source becomes quite a bit more challenging.  (Worse in terms of
less existant, not a comment on the quality of existing documentation).

Also, I think GNOME documentation is really necessary, as you want
people to use what is available, so you have to tell them, otherwise
they'll just start reinventing the wheel.  (which, they will do anyways,
but you should at least try to keep them from doing that)
