Subject: (Was: guile-gobject 0.3.0 Released)
Date: Mon, 04 Feb 2002 15:05:00 -0000	[thread overview]

I'm afraid I'm confused about the future of guile-gtk.

Could Ariel (or perhaps someone else who is also working on it) please
clarify what the intentions for continuing development are?

Reasons for asking:

  * I could not get the guile-gtk 0.21pre4 release to build against GTK
    2 (1.3), and configuration code that appeared to be for GTK 2 was
    disabled.  I had the same problem with CVS version.

  * When built against GTK 1.2 and Guile 1.5.4 CVS, some of the
    guile-gtk widget demos have errors (possibly due to Guile changes).
    It was also unclear how much new functionality has been added in
    recent times.

  * Ariel's true love may be the full Gnome platform in all its glory,
    and it may be asking too much of him -- or anyone -- to burden him
    with separately developing and maintaining *non*-Gnome GTK bindings.

No flame intended; I just need to understand where guilt-gtk is going if
I'm to be able to use Guile at all.  So far it's been confusing.

Please note that guile-gobject won't work for me and some other people,
since anything Gnome-dependent presents technical (e.g., size,
complexity) and/or political issues.  However, Guile bindings for GTK 2
(and perhaps Pango and Libart), are very much desired -- so long as they
are independent of Gnome.
