[MonoDevelop] 'new Gnome', 'new Glade' projects ... more explanation?

I'll explain you:
GTK is the gimp toolkit and gtksharp is a warper so we can use it in mono. 
When talking about monoDevelop and its project templates they are *just* 
templates. Defaults to a project of that type. When you choose to create a 
project of type GTK# it includes the references needed to render a design 
based on code only. But, it can be difficult or hardly custumized. So the 
gtk guys - I think - created glade. Glade is an addicional library to gtk 
that adds the ability to read the interface directly from a XML file. That 
gives IDE abstraction and enable run-time custumized user interfaces. So, 
even if monoDevelop one day includes an IDE for that, you can always use - 
like now - the Glade editor. You can found it easly, just search in 
programming category. when you choose the glade project it creates the 
references to gtk# plus glade#.

You can find a tutorial in www.go-mono.org - that tutorial explains how to 
create a window with both glade editor and monodevelop.

Hope it helps,
