Project news

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

We're still here

Rumours of PHP-GTK's death have been greatly exaggerated! The project is very much still alive, but we're waiting for PHP 5.3 to come out, and also some work needs to be done on the Cairo extension before a new release can be made. This should be completed soon. This release will come with support for GTK+ 2.14 and 2.16, Cairo, and PHP 5.3.

The next release will also include official installers for Windows and Mac OSX, and an installer script (thank you bob) for Linux.

Glade 3 (3.4.1) Build for Windows (Installer Included)

Glade 3 running on LinuxRecently I have had the obligation to develop desktop applications for Windows platforms in a fast and practical, to make this happens I decided to use Glade.

The only problem is that I've been using Linux for over 4 years and 2 years since I have not developed anything under/for Windows, but nothing is forever and this time is no an exception.

At first, I searched a lot through the internet looking for something already done, in my search I found a few projects, but none that were not updated to run in an acceptable manner, at the end I lost too much time, so I decided to take control of things and make my own compilation of gtk + libraries for Windows and finally achieve the power to run Glade properly.

After a few days (1 and an half, actually) trying to run my favorite software for the design of graphical user interfaces (Glade) under Windows, I finally succeeded.

This was my result.

So I've decided to create an installation script and publish it for anyone who needs Glade on Windows... you can get in an easy way, just a click away.

PHP-GTK 2 is Here !

After a long development and QA cycle, we are proud to release version 2.0 of PHP-GTK. This release, named leap day special, marks PHP-GTK 2 as stable and comes with support for GTK+ versions 2.6 through 2.12. Although support for more recent versions than 2.8 is not 100% complete, we hope to cover as much of the API as possible in upcoming releases.

This release comes with support for custom GTypes and signals, more API coverage, and the usual slew of bug fixes. Take a look at the Changelog for detailed information on changes since the beta.

If you're looking to learn PHP-GTK, the documentation is a great place to start. There's also an excellent book from Apress by Scott Mattocks on the topic. We hope you will enjoy developing applications with PHP-GTK 2. Please don't hesitate to file bug reports at the bug tracker, or give us feedback on the php-gtk-general mailing list. Have fun!
