ANNOUNCE: Gnome-- 1.2.0



Gnome--
-------

The stable Gnome-- 1.2.0 has finally been released, and is available
from
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=1161

Gnome-- provides C++ wrappers for the gnome-libs widgets, such as
GnomeApp, Canvas, Dialog, Druid, MDI, MessageBox, etc.

The API, which is much clearer than the original gnome-libs 1.2 API, can
be seen here:
http://gtkmm.sourceforge.net/docs/gnome/class_index.html
We have also created several examples which demonstrate the use of the
Gnome-- API.


Credits
-------

Gnome-- was severely delayed by the loss of its initial maintainer, but
has now fully recovered. Credit and thanks are very much due to the
following developers:

Eric Bourque, Manuel Clos, Gerg§ ╔rdi, Andreas Holzmann, Falk Hueffner,
Peter Lerner, Karl Nelson, Agustin Ferrin Pozuelo, Herbert Valerio
Riedel, Sebastian Rittau, Joe Yandle


The Future
----------

GNOME 2.0 should be released at the beginning of 2002, with a new API.
Gnome-- will probably then be renamed to gnomeui-- and updated for the
new GNOME 2 API. The Gnome-- name may be used to refer to the whole
collection of GNOME C++ bindings, including Gtk--, gnomeui--,
libglade--, GConf--, ORBit/C++, etc, which might be available as one
umbrella package.
