Release 0.93.94 of the LessTif library announced

29-Nov-03 12:30 GMT

About LessTif

LessTif is a  free  (LGPL'd) implementation of the OSF/Motif standard GUI toolkit for X11. LessTif aims to be source compatible with the Motif (a product of The OpenGroup) versions 1.2 and 2.1.

Nearly all Motif 1.2 apps compile and work out of the box with LessTif! It still lacks substantial parts of the new 2.1 functionality, but most 2.x applications can already be built and used (many don't use the 2.x novelties).

Some run-time problems however may still exist. The LessTif Core team is interested in hearing about Motif applications which don't work with LessTif. Bug reports are welcome - patches are even more welcome!

More information, source code, and binaries for several platforms are available at:

Editor's Note:
Motif is available free of charge for Linux and FreeBSD. It is known as OpenMotif for these platforms. The latest, OpenGroup approved, version, 2.1.30, is available from IST's OpenMotif page.
