I'm taking a couple weeks off for christmas. I've been at my parents' house in McCloud for a bit over a week now.
I've been using the time off to do some anjuta2 (formerly gIDE) work. I've been working on the debugger (gnome-debug), and have ended up almost completely rewriting it. I took this opportunity to move gnome-debug over to gnome2. I pretty much agree with what trow says about gnome2.
gnome-debug isn't the only anjuta2 component moving to gnome2. Gustavo has committed an initial port of gdl. When I get back to boston, I plan to start porting anjuta2 itself.
At the moment I'm working on a ddd-style structure browsing widget. I think it will be useful for things other than the debugging display. We'll see. I'll have screenshots next time I have a network connection on my laptop.
