Subject: Dr. Dobb's Tcl-URL! - weekly Tcl news and links (Feb
QOTW from Rick Hedin: "... After spending a year messing with
Java, we moved the project to Tcl/Tk. Guess what? It works."
Please note: Due to Google's purchase of Deja.com on February
12, links to articles are in a bit of a mess. Rather than put in
links which may be dead in a week, this week's focus is on things
that can be summarized and links that shouldn't go away any time
real soon. As soon as links are happier, we'll put 'em back in.
Thanks for your patience...
Thinking of forming your own country? Well, you'll need a flag..

Tcl-Url important note: You may notice that links to original
articles no longer points to Deja.com - they were purchased
February 12, 2001 by Google.com, and at the moment there's a
question as to where the data will end up. Apologies for any bad
links in the interim...
Wondering where Jeff Hobbs went? He's still the Tcl Guy, but now
he's at ActiveState. Good news for Tcl availability and visibility,
see the ActiveState website in a week or two for details: http://www.activestate.com
When is 8.4 going to be released? What about 9.0? Well, the
former is a pretty stable alpha, and may soon be moving to stable
beta with Jeff's new "100% Tcl" job. The latter, well, it may be a
while before enough major features make it worth the new designator
Iain B Findleton announces an update to the Image 1.0 package
for Windows. It fixes some stuff and enhances some stuff; go

Brent Welch maintains "The Tcl Developer Xchange", a highly
organized resource center of documents and software with provisions
for individuals to "set up a link to your software and update ...
as you release new versions." http://dev.scriptics.com/resource/
