Freshmeat page:


Libglade is an alternative to Glade's source code generation. Instead of generating source code from the XML interface description, compiling and linking it to your application, libglade allows you to load the XML interface description at runtime.

This allows you to do a number of useful things. For instance, you can change the interface and try it out without having to recompile the application. You could also get your application to choose between a number of interfaces at startup (eg. having a simple and a complicated interface).

As well as using libglade in C programs, there are bindings for python, perl, lisp (rep) and others. Because of the way libglade works, once the interface has been constructed (which is quick), there is no performance penalty for using libglade.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
