ANNOUNCE: GNUstep Make Package Version 1.2.1

The GNUstep Makefile Package version 1.2.1 is now available.

What is the GNUstep makefile package?
=====================================

    The makefile package is a simple, powerful and extensible way to
write makefiles for a GNUstep-based project.  It allows the user to
write a project without having to deal with the complex issues
associated with configuration, building, installation, and packaging.
It also allows the user to easily create cross-compiled binaries.

Changes in version `1.2.1'
==========================

    * the source distribution code has been rewritten to be more general
      and extended.  Packages built using gnustep-make now automatically
      have handy targets building tarballs from sources or from CVS
      imports.

    * implemented support for auto-dependencies, which means that any
      object file automatically depends on all the header files which
      were used to build it.  Only works with newer compilers.

    * implemented INSTALL_AS_USER and INSTALL_AS_GROUP.

    * implemented a strip=yes option.

    * various bug fixes and minor improvements.

ANN: StepTalk 0.4.1 (with Guile)

What is StepTalk ?
------------------

Scripting framework.

With StepTalk you can create scriptable servers or applications. It is 
written
using GNUstep (see www.gnustep.org). It is language independent: you can use
any available scripting language that is provided as a separate bundle.

StepTalk can be used to
     - use scripts inside a program/application
     - control server/application with script from outer world

What is new in 0.4.1
-------------------
     * Guile - new language bundle. gstep-guile library is needed.

       Guile bundle is not build by default. You have to make it in
       Languages/Guile directory (make; make install). You may try to 
execute
       very simple piece of code in Languages/Guile/Tests using stexec.

       NOTE: do not forget to run 'stupdate_languages' after installing 
any new
             language bundle. To find out if languages were updated, try
             'stexec -list-languages'

     * Separated Foundation binding stuff to Foundation module

ANN: GNUstep GUI Library release 0.7.5

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 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 X/DPS GUI Backend.

Noteworthy changes in version `0.7.5'
=====================================

    * Drag and drop and image sliding much improved.

ANN: GNUstep xgps Library version 0.7.5

What is the GNUstep GUI X/GPS Backend?
======================================

    It is a back-end component for the GNUstep GUI Library.  The
implementation of 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 the X Window System.  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 X/GPS Backend is for platforms using the X Window
System It works via a DPS emulation engine to use Xlib calls to emulate
the DPS functions required by the front-end system.

Noteworthy changes in version `0.7.5'
=====================================

    * Preliminary (untested) XIM support (off by default).

    * Much improved DnD handling.

    * slide windows implemented.

    * Better window manager support (Gnome, EWMH (KDE))

    * Improved image alpha handling, implemented alpha dissolves.
