As you see the GTK version is very embryonic. I guess it's not very complex to
connect callbacks. It's a lack of time that explains why it's not done yet.
We planned to have a student that summer for working on the GTK version but
he received a proposal for a stable job just before joining us.
I guess it was good for him but it didn't let us time to find another student.

My plan is to invest my personal time this summer (after the July release) 
I think it's very important and urgent to move to GTK. We expect also to use 
GTK for
having an internationalized version of Amaya on Unix palforms.
Of course, if you'd like to contribute your help is welcome.
