Geany 0.16 is depending on Gtk 2.8.x. I've got current svn version
running on Xubuntu 8.04.2. If there is no suitable package avaialble,
maybe you can compile it on your own:

Hi Manish,

I'm currently fetching Geany 0.16 from a Personal Package Archive on Launchpad:


Klaus has hardy build of 0.16, so you're in luck :)

Just grab sources.list entry for Hardy using the drop-down, add the entry via "System -> Administration -> Software Sources -> Third Party Software", and you'll be laughing.
