The GNUstep Base Library, version 1.12.0, is now available.
What is the GNUstep Base Library?
The GNUstep Base Library is a library of general-purpose, non-graphical
Objective C objects. For example, it includes classes for strings,
object collections, byte streams, typed coders, invocations,
notifications, notification dispatchers, moments in time, network
remote object messaging support (distributed objects), and event loops.
It provides functionality that aims to implement the non-graphical
portion of the OpenStep standard (the Foundation library).
