ANNOUNCE: PonG 0.5 "4 just isn't prime enough"

A new PonG (v 0.5) is out.  If you wonder what PonG is:

PonG is a library for creating preference dialogs with a minimum of coding.
The description of the gconf keys and widgets are written in an XML file that
is read at runtime and the dialog is created and gconf magic is done.  All
you have to do on your side is listen for gconf changes.  It also allows the
preference dialogs to be run from a different program and actually even from
the command line.  It would also allow a registry editor to run the correct
preference dialog for some keys.

The biggest thing in this release is the GUI editor, called pong-edit.  It
doesn't have the best interface, but it's fully usable (or should be).  It
will even export schema files for you as well.

Other then that the interface is stabilizing and I do promise to write some
docs soon.  But it's not actually that horribly difficult now with pong-edit.
While still being a development library and shouldn't be used in production
programs, it should be usable and I'd be interested in some feedback from
people using it.  The first person to use PonG in his program earns a free

Here's a rundown of the changes:

	pong-edit (GUI Editor):
		- Basically a rewrite
		- Now usable.
		- Writes out schema files as well for you, data is stored in
		  .pong files

	pong (library):
		- Change how user levels are specified for widgets
		- Revert button
		- Slider widget
		- Support got all GtkEditable widgets directly
		- Support for GtkText directly
		- Better gettext support
		- Work with latest GConf (Maciej)
		- Fixes

		- Preliminary IDL

		- Fixes

		- Very beginnings of docs
