I would add three more sections like:

"gtk+ programming under Unix/Linux/*BSD"
"gtk+ programming under MacOS X"
"gtk+ programming under Windows"

So the "peculiarities" of the three major platforms gtk+ is supported on can be directly discussued.

Best regards...

I was thinking abou that as well. What do you think...

If they're writing about something language specific it falls in one of the language specific categories but if it's specific to the platform it could be moved into the above suggested categories?

I was also thinking that it would be nice to have a forum dedicated to applications, where people can announce applications they have created and use.

Also, I was thinking that instead of "Gtk+ Programming for Gnome", maybe a better title would be "Gnome Programming" because there are a lot of libraries in Gnome that aren't a part of Gtk+. Not that it is a big deal, but it might clear up a few confusions. (In my stupidity I didn't see it for a while...)

You might also want to consider placing the Gnome Programming in its own section because I forsee it being extremely useful. The Gnome widgets are unfortunately underdocumented for the most part and I think anyone beginning with them would be very grateful for its own section (I know I would have been).

Like I said before, thanks for the forum!

Good idea. I agree for the Gnome secion. I will do that as well, however, I'm trying not to overlap the gnome support forums too much.

I wouldn't worry about overlap. The more places for answers the better. Besides, things only improve when there is competition. That is proven by the fact that Windows has sucked for how many years, lol?
