This release focused on getting rid all all the bugs and make NeonView stable, and in 0.8.1 most of the known bugs should be gone. The core code has been rewritten and the application’s design is quite robust now, working the way it should.
This new release, codenamed “Xiphophorus”, comes with several new features and a small bug fix:
This release, codenamed ‘Corydoras’, comes with several new features, including two rewritten modules and a graphical configuration window. Here are the most important changes for this version:
This first release, codenamed ‘Betta splendens’, includes just a handful of features for now, however it is the base on which development of more advanced features will take place.

GtkPerf is an application designed to test GTK+ performance. The point is to create common testing platform to run predefined GTK+ widgets (opening comboboxes, toggling buttons, scrolling text etc.) and this way define the speed of device/platform.
Moon Buggy Alpha runs on Jaunty using the murrine engine 0.90.3. Optionally for increased contrast and definition use the included "gnome color chooser" theme file .gnomecc.

QGtkStyle makes your Qt/KDE programs look similarly to GTK ones. But there were no easy .debs for a long while so I searched everywhere and found deb files for Ubuntu on the ubuntuforums.
Instead of an introduction, I'll answer the question 'Why did you left out wonderful applications like Scribus, Inkscape, Cinelerra, Wine, QCad etc?'. Well, because the article is about applications which I consider essential for daily use. Of course, some work with those every day, but not the majority.
The article reviews 10 GTK applications which don't come with the GNOME desktop environment, and are third-party applications: GIMP, Banshee, OpenOffice.org, Firefox, XChat, VLC, Deluge, Geany, LinuxDC++ and Inkscape. Screenshots included.
