GTK2 bindings for PHP

I've been making pretty good headway with this.. - gtk.php fires up pretty well, and most of the simple button/widgets work.. Callbacks are working Ok as far as I can work out.

Next on the challenges is to fix
I disabled this early on.. - so hopefully it shouldnt be too much to re-enable it..

As a side to this, I've also been playing with a C_Parser, to improve my h2def.php code. The idea being that if parsing a .h file was very simple, then writing extensions would be an realitively automated task..

it's PHP5 only, and you can play with it by checking it out from php's cvs

cvs -d checkout -r GTK2 php-gtk

Nice Interview with Rasmus - php's creator

William sent me an link to an interview with Rasmus with a little mention of phpmole. Rasmus is someone you can not fail to admire, not only for his creation of php, but the manner and balance he has shown toward a little project that 'solved his own problem'  that has grown beyond his wildest dreams. An interesting read on how to manage and grow with a project.

Uploaded all the movies to the photo section

Site News
Just a minor update, all the digital camera movies are now online, I found a nice little applications dumpmpeg (based on the sdl library), that after a minor hack, I used to make thumbnails of all the mpeg movies from the camera.

Phpmole news
Other than that, 'recent files' has been added to phpmole and I got another patch into php4.2 (just a little curl fix). still looking at two key areas for development on phpmole - pgtkhtml is still pending me sorting out the rest of the debugger - you cant do really complex gtk apps without a good debugger.., the other one was the glade builder (while glade is nice), it is not a pluggable application, and the thought is that extending the current libglade emulation layer it might be possible to do that......

Major phpmole updates, and the site

Well, the new article abstract and content editing is working really well, It just took me a while to sort out how the site works using all this. I also managed to fix a few close document bugs in phpmole, mostly by adding a post_close method on the notebook manager, so that it does not try and do something on a document that was about to be closed. The site looks alot better now - well IMO :)
