i really love GTK and Perl.
I only wanted to know the status of the
documentation of GTK/Perl. The tutorial isn't
very complete, styles are not finished yet and
the ref is only in pdf.
Is there a new release soon?

Depends on what you mean by "soon".  :)

I am currently in the process of rewriting the tutorial in DocBook
(actually, I'm currently perfecting a Perl script that takes my
proprietary format and turns it into DocBooks SGML).  There are a couple
of changes that will be necessary, but I think the benefits outweigh the
cost (such as automagically generating Postscript and PDF versions for a
printed format).

Why DocBook and not pod, as most every other perl module?
It sucks not beeing able to say perldoc Gnome...

I guess one could generate pod from the DocBook sources (though hardly very
well), but it does seem rather silly.
