libglade is still supported in bora release, and it is available on

Gazpacho is not currently included on the SDK release. It was using an
old and patched version.

The idea is to use now gazpacho upstream version plus gazpacho-hildon
adaptors and some custom plugins to make maemo developement easy.

My plan is to make gazpacho available on the Sardine distribution soon
in the next weeks.

If you want to use it on the current bora SDK you just need to install
the whole python stack from repository.maemo.org/extras and then get
gazpacho upstream, and then install gazpacho-hildon and
gazpacho-maemo-plugins from garage:

gazpacho support perfectly libglade format. It is even ready for the
upcoming GtkBuilder format.

The adventages of using gazpacho is that custom widgets support is
easier (for widgets written in C with bindings and directly for widgets
written in python). Also gazpacho plugins allow things like doing a
preview of your UI directly on the device.

Hope this helps.
