A new version of Beryl has been released, but unless you use the overlay, it hasn’t been released into the wild yet. That is since my last sync at 3:30PM (EST) March 15. I’m anxious to upgrade to the newer release because of the freezing issues I was having with Beryl. I’m currently updating all of the other programs on my computer. I actually had several. More that I usually get. I generally stay fairly current unless something is breaking.
In less interesting news I’ve started playing with Glade. Its a lot different than what I’m used to for GUI programming. Then again the only GUI programming I’ve ever done was with MS Visual Studio. Which I might add made GUI programming fairly easy in my opinion. Glade is nice. I don’t think its any worse than Visual Studio it’s just different. I’m not used to the idea of having to setup the window’s layout before I put anything in it. If you’ve ever used Glade you’ll know what I mean. In VS you could just drag and drop as you pleased and then moved everything around as you pleased. At the moment the MS way feels a bit more intuitive and perhaps easier to use. I’m going to play with it more and try to write a simple program or two in C++ before I decide how good or bad Glade is for making GUIs. I’m Glade does exist though. I’d hate to have to code a GUI by hand. That would just be painful.
Enjoy the Penguins!
