ANN: Gui/Back 0.22.0

This is version 0.22.0 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.

ANN: Base 1.24.0

The GNUstep Base Library, version 1.24.0, 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 `1.24.0'
==========================================

   * There is binary incompatibility on 64bit systems in that the value
     of the NSNotFound constant there is now 64bits rather than 32bits.

   * gcc-4.0 is the minimum official supported compiler for GNUstep

   * Support for the GNU LANGUAGES environment variable and other locale
     improvements

   * IPV6 support for NSHost and networking operations

ANN: Make 2.6.2

The GNUstep Makefile Package version 2.6.2 is now available.

1.1 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.

1.2 Changes in version `2.6.2'
==============================

Added standalone filesystem layout for putting everything in one
directory for easy deployment of relocatable. Other bug fixes.

1.3 Obtaining gnustep-make
==========================

You can get the gstep-make-2.6.2.tar.gz distribution file at
`ftp://ftp.gnustep.org/pub/gnustep/core'

   Please log bug reports on the GNUstep project page
