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
"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".
