Luz Studio 0.91 makes the move from Glade to GtkBuilder, gets WAY faster startups

Luz is a live motion graphics editor and performer.

With this change, startup time is down from ~4 seconds to under 1 second. Mainly I think this is due to using separate builder XML files, as opposed to one massive glade XML file that I now believe was being loaded repeatedly (once for each toplevel window).

Now I need to figure out what happened to the Ruby bindings for GtkGLExt, and Luz will be able to run in Ubuntu 11.10 and up (bug).

Though I’m not on 11.10 yet, so any help would be appreciated!
