Dear users of both large and small computing tools,

A new unstable release of Guikachu is available.

About Guikachu
Guikachu is a GNOME application for graphical editing of resource
files for PalmOS-based pocket computers. The user interface is
modelled after Glade, the GNOME UI builder.

Catch it all from

 * Uses GNOME-VFS, you can load files from anywhere, e.g. from the
   Web, from an SMB share, from a tarball.
 * Exporting to/importing from PilRC .rcp files
 * Support for non-Palm PilRC targets (like the eBookMan)
 * Support for the following PalmOS resource types:
        - String and string list resources
        - Dialog resources
        - Menu resources
        - Form resources
        - Bitmap resources
        - Per-application resources (e.g. version number)
 * WYSIWYG Form Editor, with drag & drop capability and visual resizing
 * Flexible, complete undo support
 * Sample file with sample GNU PalmOS SDK-based application
 * Documentation (a complete user's manual)

About this release
This release is part of the 1.5 development branch, so it's all about
crazy experimentations and not about providing a polished, well-tested
product. However, 1.5.6 now contains everything planned for our next
stable release, 2.0, so please help us by trying it and reporting

New in this release:
Completely reworked the menu editor, based on valuable input from the
GNOME Usability Workgroup.

Guikachu uses the GNOME 2 platform, particularly the GNOMEmm and GTKmm
C++ bindings. To actually create the PalmOS resource files, you will also
need PilRC (part of the GNU PalmOS SDK) to compile the .rpc files
produced by Guikachu.

Beware of bugémons!
