IST Updates X-Designer for Motif 2 and S 508 Accessibility

04-Mar-02 09:00 GMT

Imperial Software Technology has announced that it is now shipping X-Designer 7: Enterprise Edition, a major new version of its graphical user interface (GUI) builder for Motif, Windows and Java.

Leading the list of new features is full integral support for Motif 2, the latest version of the standard GUI toolkit for UNIX and Linux workstations. Now designers of application interfaces for UNIX can take full advantage of the features and power of Motif 2, confident in the knowledge that they can transition these interfaces to Windows and Java for full cross-platform capable applications.

X-Designer 7 meets the requirements of Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act by being fully keyboard accessible, the only product in its class to do so.

Also new to X-Designer 7 is the ability to save GUI designs in XML, which makes the saved design available for processing by further tools, such as design documentation utilities or for translation to other types of interface.

"We've introduced X-Designer 7 because of the unprecedented demand for a Motif 2 builder from the customer base, and the huge interest shown in downloads from our web site of the Motif 2 books and the toolkit itself,  said Derek Lambert, president and CEO of IST Limited.

Antony Fountain, the author of the 'Ask Antony' pages here, principal software engineer at IST, and lead author of the O'Reilly standard books on Motif 2 said, "X-Designer 7 is a comprehensive, robust tool which we firmly believe is the best in its class. We've invested significant effort in moving X-Designer forward and building in full Motif 2 functionality".
