Ummm, yes and no, if that's alright.

Basically we changed the name 'glade3' to 'glade' in the
so that the install directory for shared files would be '$prefix/share/glade'
instead of '$prefix/share/glade3' etc...

This is basically so that glade for GTK+ 3.0 will be parallel installable
with glade for GTK+ 2.0... at the same time we changed the exec name
from 'glade-3' to 'glade' (for git master, aka glade 3.10).

Right, so essentially what we should have is 'jhbuild glade3' to build
glade-3-8 branch (which has support for libglade conversions and support
for deprecated widgets and older toolkit versions etc), and 'jhbuild glade'
to build master (which has GTK+ >= 3.0 support only, and no libglade support).

They both exist, and will be released in parallel, glade-3-8 branch is basically
a migration path for projects still transitioning from libglade or older toolkit
versions and will eventually support all the widgets in GTK+ 2.24 (so, if your
old project can run with glade 3.8 and use no deprecated widgets, it's then
safe to transition to 3.0)... at least that's the plan/theory.

Let me know if this approach breaks anything infrastructural (i.e. glade-3-8
tarballs installed as 'glade3' module and >= master tarballs installed
as 'glade').
