General Information

Glade is a RAD tool to enable quick & easy development of user interfaces
for the GTK+ 3 toolkit and the GNOME desktop environment. 

The user interfaces designed in Glade are saved as XML and these can be loaded
by applications dynamically as needed by using GtkBuilder or used directly to
define a new GtkWidget derived object class using Gtk+ new template feature.

By using GtkBuilder, Glade XML files can be used in numerous programming 
languages including C, C++, C#, Vala, Java, Perl, Python,and others. 

About Glade

This version of Glade (Glade >= 3.10) targets GTK+ >= 3.0 and is parallel
installable with Glade 3.8.

If you need to work with Glade projects that target GTK+2, you need an
installation of Glade 3.8 (more information on


Glade is distributed under the GNU General Public License (GPL), as described
in the COPYING file.


 o GTK+ 3.10.0 or above -
   You also need the glib, pango and atk libraries.
   Make sure you have the devel packages as well, as these will contain the
   header files which you will need to compile C applications.

 o libxml 2.4.1 - used to parse the XML files. If you have GNOME 2 you
   should already have this.
