Interim news from the PHP-GTK team: progress being made between versions, new features added...

New layout on the official website of the php-gtk (http://gtk.php.net/)

Good day,

I changed the official website of the php-gtk at http://gtk.php.net/

  • Now it is multi-language.
  • For now the site is in English and Portuguese Brazil.
  • Today we have few links, but I hope that the community help us make improvements.
  • 5361 files were changed for me, including the manual files which now has four formats for download.
  • Next week I shall provide a page where you will know how to help the project.
  • With the release of PHP 7, I will start the development of php-gtk 3.

I ask those who want to publicize your software, to send screens and a description in Portuguese and English so I put on the official website.

Thank you

New repository for PHP-GTK

Although the main PHP-GTK site at http://gtk.php.net/ does not (yet ?) make mention of it, development of PHP-GTK is still active, but is using a more recent infrastructure, having moved to Github like many other projects.

About "PHP-GTK installer for windows"

A PHP-GTK installer for Windows, it includes PHP-GTK (PHP 5.3.4 + php-gtk snap + cairo), PHP Extensions, some Gtk Locales, File Associations and demo scripts

Fixed incompatibility between extensions and core due to version mismatch

You can install only PHP-GTK core files, the full install or choose what to install. Made with Inno Setup, questions, suggestions and feature requests are welcome

A Year later...

Dropping by to let the PHP-GTK community know that development is still happening! The project is being split up into different projects, PECL/Cairo, GLib, GObject, etc.

While development is slow, there are still a few crazy people hacking away into the early hours.

Sit tight!

P.S. If you find that you're crazy enough to want to help the PHP-GTK project get back into rhythm, the guys are very welcoming. Find us on the #php-gtk channel on Freenode.

pkStart - yet another start menu

From my first uses of PHP-GTK, I found it lacked an installer. Something that gives more confidence than zillions of zipped files. Thus was born PiGii.

Months later, I needed a "tail" utility for MS-Windows. Thus appeared pkTail.

A few weeks later, I searched for an application launcher: something similar to the well-known "Start" menu. The time had come for pkStart.

  • The pkStart icon (with its tip) in the system tray:

New PHP-GTK 2 OSUM

I created a new PHP-GTK group in the Open Source University Meetup from SUN. The link is:
