gnocl 0.5.14

Gnocl 0.5.14 is available at

http://www.dr-baum.net/gnocl/

This release features the ability to develop Gnome panel applets with Gnocl and Tcl (many thanks to Akos Polster). The tree and list widgets have a new column type "markup" which allows to format the cell content with a simple xml syntax and references to rows which are independent of the sort order, insertion or deletion of rows have been introduced. Many widget have new options -sizeGroup, -widthGroup and -heightGroup that allow to set the same size, width or height for widgets which do not share the same container widget. Additionally different new options to different widgets have been introduced and all known bugs have been fixed.
For a detailed list of changes see the NEWS file.

Gnocl is a GTK+ / Gnome extension for the programming language Tcl, loosely modeled after the Tk package. It provides easy to use commands to build quickly GTK+ / Gnome compliant applications including canvas widget, GConf and the Gnome applet. It consists of several libraries: one for GTK+ widgets, one for the Gnome canvas widget, one for the GConf database and one for other Gnome related commands.

This version has been tested with GTK+ 2.2.1, Gnome 2.2.0 and Tcl 8.4.2 under Linux. A FreeBSD port is also available.

License: BSD type (same as Tcl)
