Gtk+2 panel's primary target is to provide a panel that reuses whatever available (if not overkilling) in the obvious way, such as subclassing GtkWidget instead of implementing applets (whatever they are) or by using a GtkBuilder file instead of defining a new format to customize the panel. This approach gives some additional advantages for free: you can use common tools in uncommon ways. Above all you can use glade to design your own panel.
All the dependencies apart Gtk+ are (and hopefully will be) optionals.
What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]
· The gladeui autodetection has been improved, and the premature expansion of the catalogdir variable is now avoided.
· It is now possible to explicitly specify the path at configure time, skipping the gladeui autodetection.
· The build system gracefully support the --as-needed linker flag and has been improved to support "make distcheck" without errors.
· gtk2panel now has a --version argument so automake compatibility level can be raised to gnits.
