of the LessTif library announced
29-Nov-03 12:30 GMT
The LessTif Core Team is pleased to announce
of the LessTif library!
This is an intermediate release that fixes
the crashes that were introduced by fixes for gadget colour
problems. These were reported to crash DDD and Grace.
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:
Motif is available free of charge for Linux and
FreeBSD. It is
known as OpenMotif for these platforms. The latest, OpenGroup
available from IST's OpenMotif page.
