After some days working in other stuff I came back to work with GtkGrid. I even got a patch from Todd Fisher for displaying the row number in the sidebar!
So today was the compilation win32 day. I got some problems building pygtk in win32 for Python 2.3 but after some googling I discovered how to fix it. More info here. So no Visual Studio C was needed, thanks heaven.
After that and some changes to my lgsbuild.py script because I updated all the versions of our software dependencies I run into another problem with pygtk.
I got some undefined references when compiling pygtk and I asked to the pygtk list about this issue. I should have googled this time too as kiko showed to me :)
In the meanwhile Johan et al are working harder and harder and we are having releases very fast. So I guess my compilation nightmares have just started .... :)
At least we have new versions of GtkGrid and pyGrid (python bindings), this time for Python 2.3. CHeck them out here !!.
