It runs also on FreeBSD thanks to patches by Chris Vetter.

What is new in 0.5 ?
- support reading information from /sys instead of /proc on Linux

ANN: Graphos 0.1

GRAPHOS 0.1

I am pleased to announce the first public release of Graphos. After 10 
years from the last release of GDraw... back from the ashes!

What is it?
-----------

Graphos is a vector drawing application centered around bezier paths.

Graphos roots are directly set in GDraw, written by Enrico Sersale and 
released in 2000. Version 0.1 of Graphos is a direct descendant of 
GDraw: the interface is almost unchanged, but the application has been 
refactored, reorganized, debugged, rewritten and updated. The file 
format was improved a little, Graphos is able to read GDraw files but 
not the other way around.

The main changes were the transition from post-script to NSBezierPath 
drawing, total rearrangement of the objects into Drawable Objects and 
their Editors organized hierarchically and the porting to Macintosh (and 
it works also on Windows). The text tool was debugged quite a bit too.

Finally, after the rearrangement was complete, it was possible to create 
the Circle tool of which there was no working version in the GDraw 
tarball I was able to get.

The Undo function was redone from scratch and Graphos 0.1 supports one 
level of undo for creating and editing of objects.

Where to get it:

GNUstep-base bugfix release of stable branch

The GNUstep Base Library, version 1.20.1, is now available.

1.1 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 ports,
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).

   There is more information available at the GNUstep homepage at
`http://www.gnustep.org'.

1.2 Noteworthy changes in version `1.20.1'
==========================================

This is a stable bugfix release. There are no major changes or binary
incompatibilities, but this release does include an update of timezone
handling to include the latest zone information.

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

The gnustep-base-1.20.1.tar.gz distribution file has been placed at
`ftp://ftp.gnustep.org/pub/gnustep/core'.

ANN: DataBasin 0.1

D A T A  B A S I N
------------------

I am pleased to announce the release of DataBasin 0.1.

-- What is it? --
It is a data access tool for Salesforce.com, it allows querying, 
deleting and inserting records. It accesses the APIs through the usage 
of web services.

Of interest might be its core, DBSoap, which implements the access to 
the APIs. It is designed to be reusable for other projects. As far as I 
know it is the only "Open source" implementation of its kind. It is 
released as LGPL.

DataBasin runs both on GNUstep and Mac >= 10.3

-- Where do I find it? --
Data Basin is hosted in the GAP project:

http://gap.nongnu.org/databasin/index.html

DataBasin uses the GNUstep Webservices, which Richard extended to 
support SOAP right for this application.

Re: ANN: DataBasin 0.1

Hi Riccardo and list,
 
Of interest might be its core, DBSoap, which implements the access to the APIs. It is designed to be reusable for other projects. As far as I know it is the only "Open source" implementation of its kind. It is released as LGPL.


I think I need to investigate how DataBasin works. I think that this could make a perfect foundation for developing a SOAP client for Atlassian JIRA which quite a few development shops are using out there.
Has anyone done any experiments in this direction using GSWC?

Cheers,
Tim

ANN: GWorkspace 0.8.8

I'm pleased to annouce that GWorkspace version 0.8.8  is now available.
Many thanks to all those who helped with testing or contributed with patches.

What is GWorkspace?
====================================

GWorkspace is a workspace manager for GNUstep.

Changes in version 0.8.8
=========================

* the GWMetadata subproject is now controlled by a configure option. This means that sqlite is no longer a
hard dependency if live folders and search functionality is not desired. It also means that if selected,
it will be really configured, built and installed (up to now it was manual).

* portability issues fixed (SPARC crashes, HURD constants)
* builds on Windows (MinGW)
* cleanups and updates in the build system
* extensive warning fixing and code cleanup (like header imports)
* use standard classes and functions (NSProgressIndicator, info panel...)
* removal of private GNUstep.h copies
* improved terminal services interface and interaction
* various crash fixes
* improvements with the detection of optional PDFkit for the PDF 
contents inspector

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

You can download sources from 
ftp://ftp.gnustep.org/pub/gnustep/usr-apps/gworkspace-0.8.8.tar.gz 
<ftp://ftp.gnustep.org/pub/gnustep/usr-apps/gworkspace-0.8.7.tar.gz>
(download will be available soon)

The official homepage of the project is:
http://www.gnustep.org/experience/GWorkspace.html

Build Note: As a result of a more strict and correct build system, on 
some platforms, where gworkspace could compile even without sqlite (like 
windows), it is now strictly required.
