Message-ID: <> (raw)

This is announce the 0.1 release of gde_appmenu, an application menu for
gtk+ based desktop environments

gde_appmenu is an implementation of the application menu common to these
found in GNOME 2.0, Mate, XFCE and LXDE on GNU/Linux and Unix OSes. This
is however independent of any particular desktop environment and can
provide quick and simple access to the installed desktop applications
in any context where the desktop provides no direct access. It works in
X11 and Wayland sessions.

gde_appmenu provides a simple floating, movable, window initially at the
top left corner of the screen, with an application menu that drops down
to offer various application categories as defined by the desktop
session active at the time. The categories follow the
menu spec standard.

gde_appmenu is written in GNU Guile and requires

gtk+ 3.0
glib 2.0
GObject-inspection 0.72 (or above)
GNU guile 3.0
GNU G-Golf (

The 0.1 release is (for now) available at

and can be built following the standard GNU convention.  For details,
see the file in the release.

A permanent source repo and release site and mailing lists will be set
up for this program and will be announced with later releases.
