Wooden window

I am planning to do opening wooden window with double glass panel. My concern is about the right construction. How to joint the elements of window.
My first choice would be to use bit - one side (vertical), reversal bit joining part (horizontal) and glue them together. Similar process us for rising panel. Eventually I would add two long screws to each joint.
Second using mortise - tenon joint.

How long can last glue only joint?

What is the best practice in such work?

Please share your opinion.
