Gnome I am much into learning all-about-Gnome development lately, using GTK# and Mono. Unfortunately, the Mono/GTK# documentation is not that complete in regards of developing Gnome applications and this has being quite a stumbling block. The release of the "Official GNOME 2 Developer's Guide" book felt like a godsend to help clarify a few points about the GTK+ and Gnome architecture. But was it really?

I can't bring myself anything about Mono, but GTK is looking better as long as the documentation is up to date, and perhaps even reveals the direction they are going in ahead of time. An auto-complete IDE is still needed to ease the amount of typing that C language code requires. Real good and up to date information about makefiles and automake would be incredibly helpful. The last area that is interesting to know about are things like protocols and program design in the Unix tradition, separating mechanism from policy and creating simple, clear, and general program modules. The old C code will be around for a long time to come.
