Glade for Octave: Octave-Glade released.

Octave Glade

libglade ported.

Hi Folks!
Our team has added libGlade access from Octave.
Please checkout the source files, and the cool
calculator example. It was really fun to hack libGlade, and it finally adds some teeth to Octave-GTK itself. Hail RAD with Glade/GTK.

Octave-GTK Version 0.1

Finally, weve made a release of code, Octave-GTK
is now alive, and kicking.
Though it works, and code is auto-generated, we have to do enormous testing work to check if the
work will really pay off.
