I have a few copies of Foundations of GTK+ Development available to people that are willing to post a review of the book one one of a few sites. If you are interested in a free copy of the book, use my contact form. Make sure you put use a valid email address so I can contact you with more information!

Of course, if you already own the book, I would love if you took a moment to post a review to Amazon or Barnes & Noble! :)

EDIT: Sorry, the copies are now gone. However, it is currently available for half off at Bookpool: http://www.bookpool.com/sm/1590597931!

> I currently wasn't planning a sequel ...

somehow I think this might be a better place than Hexadecimal value entry.

Have you seen this book: [url=http://www.amazon.com/Programming-Industrial-Strength-Windows-Shrink-Wrap/dp/087930605X]Programming Industrial Strength Windows:
Shrink-Wrap Your App[/url]
?

It helps you to finish an application that sort-of runs inside your IDE and
polish it, create install/uninstall, take care of preferences and all those details
that make a real difference on the market.

You and maybe Micah could pull it off. You know, how to be a good citizen
on the Gnome desktop, how to open repository on sourceforge, how to
create deb, rh and yum and what not packages, a word or two on Anjuta,
CodeBlocks and your thing - OpenLDev and all the other details a good
gtk developer needs to know.

Just an idea, maybe.

I have a book planned that is similar to this, but I have to wait a few months because I just don't have the time right now. Hopefully I will get a chance to start it over Christmas.

Cool,

I'll be in a market for such a book in a year. Hope you'll have it finished by then.

PS I forgot to tell you I do have your first book, but I suppose you already guessed that. ;)

I've started tutorials a billion times regarding all the aspects of GNOME/GTK+ development outside of the actual programming but never have time.

It would in fact be a good idea to have some sort of comprehensive text on the build system (autotools), internationalization, .desktop entries, memory profiling, documentation, etc. A run-down on all the conventions used by Linux applications.
