application for GNUstep.

1.2 Noteworthy changes in version `1.2.22'

   * Fixes for Solaris

   * Memory leak fixes.

   * Objective-C parser improvements.

1.3 How can I get support for this software?

You may wish to use the GNUstep discussion mailing list for general
questions and discussion.  Look at the GNUstep Web Pages for more
information regarding GNUstep resources `http://www.gnustep.org/'

1.4 Where can you get it?  How can you compile it?
==================================================

You can download sources and rpms (for some machines) from

1.5 Where do I send bug reports?
================================

Bug reports can be sent to <bug-gnustep <at> gnu.org>.

1.6 Obtaining GNU Software

ANN: GNUstep GUI/Back 0.24.1

This is version 0.24.1 of the GNUstep GUI library (`gnustep-gui').

1.1 What is the GNUstep GUI Library?
====================================

It is a library of graphical user interface classes written completely
in the Objective-C language; the classes are based upon Apple's Cocoa
framework (which came from the OpenStep specification as release by
NeXT Software, Inc).  The library has been enhanced in a number of ways
to take advantage of the GNU system.  These classes include graphical
objects such as buttons, text fields, popup lists, browser lists, and
windows; there are also many associated classes for handling events,
colors, fonts, pasteboards and images.

   The GNUstep GUI Library is designed in two parts.  The first part is
the front-end component which is independent of platform and display
system.  This front-end is combined with a back-end component which
handles all of the display system dependent such as specific calls to
X/Windows.  This design allows the GNUstep applications to have the
"look and feel" of the underlying display system without any changes to
the application, and the library can be easily ported to other display
systems.

   The GNUstep GUI Library requires the GNU Objective-C compiler, the
GNUstep Base Library, the TIFF Graphics library, and a back-end
component like the GNUstep 'Back' Backend.

1.2 Noteworthy changes in version `0.24.1'
==========================================

From a look through ChangeLog, we can see a lot of bugfixes for this
release, with the main focus on avoiding display glitches and improving
OSX compatibility.

1.3 Where can you get it?  How can you compile it?
==================================================

The gstep-gui-0.24.1.tar.gz distribution file has been placed at
`ftp://ftp.gnustep.org/pub/gnustep/core'.

Read the INSTALL file or the GNUstep-HOWTO for installation
instructions.

1.4 Where do I send bug reports?
================================

Please log bug reports on the GNUstep project page
`http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?group=gnustep' or send bug reports to
<bug-gnustep <at> gnu.org>.

1.5 Obtaining GNU Software
==========================

GNU web site. (`http://www.gnu.org/')

ANN: TALKSOUP 1.1.0 (and NETCLASSES)

Hi,

Happy Easter to everybody! I am pleased to announce that after months of 
work a new release of GNUstep's IRC client is ready!
Being essentially abandoned the last released sources (alpha version) 
were imported some time ago in GAP with Andrew's consent. I also merged 
in some enhancements from the GIT repository code.
This release was really started because the original code was not 
working at all anymore, it features thus an extended amount of work

* Very important Crash fixes due to Strings vs AttributedStrings
* Native XCode port to Mac (both PPC and x86 do work), no gnustep 
makefiles necessary
* Memory leaks and fixes as recognized by clang's static analyzer
* Tweaks to the user interface
* import and addition of the IGNORE plugin
* fixes to work on current GNUstep runtime and on MacOS
* preference fields send action on end editing, not enter
* install plugins locally inside Application resources with .bundle 
extension
* fixed myriads of crashes due to code using "id" insteadof an explicit 
type and thus picking up the wrong methods
* 64bit fixes with NSInteger/NSUInteger

Due to the change of plugin placement, you may need to delete your defaults.

ANN: FTP 0.5

I am pleased to announce that I have a new release of FTP in GAP.

FTP ( http://gap.nongnu.org/ftp/index.html ) is the GNUstep 
Application's Project file transfer application.

New features:

  * Creation of local and remote directories
  * Command to refresh the current directory listing, local and remote
  * File renaming, local and remote
  * Drag&Drop for uploading a file from GWorkspace/Finder to remote file
    panel

And several improvements and bug fixes:

  * better handling of local and remote write errors
  * better parsing of File Sizes returned by FTP servers
  * better handling of file adding to the views, so that less "refresh"
    is needed
  * Bug fixes with multiple selection uploads
  * Code cleanup for better portability (gcc/clang, old and new runtime,
    Cocoa)

Enjoy. Riccardo

ANN: DataBasin 0.8

Release: DataBasin 0.8

News?
The most important news is the separation of the core APIs that access 
Salesforce.com to a separate, LGPL's framework, DataBasinKit. This will 
allow anybody to write connected apps in Objective-C on MacOS as well as 
with GNUstep on Linux, BSD, Solaris and MinGW on Windows.
The most important feature instead is DataBasin ability to parse the 
SOQL query and thus rearrange the output fields in CSV files not as 
Salesforce returns them but as the user requested them. The same feature 
allows related objects (. notation) to be null and retain the correct 
columns in the CSV file.

Other news are:
*Select Identify supports LIMIT
*Customizable CSV file quoting and separator
*Support for COUNT and aggregate queries
*Object Inspector supports selection of values in cells

What is DataBasin?
DataBasin is an application that allows you to perform queries, update 
records, view fields of a single object/record or describe an object's 
fields properties to a file.
Most notable is the ability (Select Identify) to perform queries by 
supplying identifiers (IDs or a set of key fields) as input instead of a 
standard where clause.

Where to get it?

Many thanks to those who patiently helped me find and fix sevberal nasty 
bugs! Richard, Wolfgang, David, Fred, Gregory....

This is a bug fix release:

====================================

GWorkspace is a workspace manager for GNUstep.

Changes in version 0.9.3

- file operations can be paused/resumed more easily and reliably

ANN: Pantomime 1.2.2

PANTOMIME 1.2.2
------------------

I am pleased to announce a new, maintenace release of Pantomime.

We (mainly German Arias, Riccardo Mottola, Sebastian Reitenbach) 
imported Pantomime from Ludovic's CW since the original author showed no 
activity.  Attempts to get patches and fixes into the original tree 
failed thus we forked. All changes are available under the LGPL as the 
original so if, they remain available and can be merged in at will. For 
now, we plan to continue the bug fixing and portability improvement that 
were long since needed.

The current repository is now hosted at gna.org, nonfsf-gnustep project:
https://gna.org/projects/gnustep-nonfsf

The download is at:
http://download.gna.org/gnustep-nonfsf/Pantomime-1.2.2.tar.gz

This release contains updates and some important, long-needed fixes:
* new res_init code for NetBSD which allows finally, after years, to run 
GNUMail on NetBSD!
* enhanced portability to FreeBSD and OpenBSD
* improved packaging hints in the makefiles
* port to MacOS reinstantiated (10.3/10.4 tested)
* extended 64bit fixes, including NSInteger/NSUInteger transitions were 
appropriate
* enhanced crash catching, so that debugging is eased in the future
* memory leaks fixed
