I will not do it in the 1.0 branch. It will be done in the 1.2 branch that 
gnome2. It would be too much work to do it in both branchs: there are very

Here, you will probably be able to select what columns you want and what 
columns you
don't want in the 1.2 branch. Same reason as above.

Fixed, in both branchs. Thanks!
gtktalog-1.0.3 will be released probably soon :)

The gnome2/gtk+-2 support in the 1.0 branch is very experimental, and will 
never be
But in the 1.2 branch, the main feature is the gnome2/gtk+-2 support. So we'll 
have a look!

Before you ask me the question: no, there are no package of the 1.2 branch yet. 
You can
only get it from the CVS. Port gtktalog from gnome1 to gnome2 is not so easy. 
But we'll
do it :)
