"Gnome-- provides C++ wrappers for the gnome-libs
widgets, such as GnomeApp, Canvas, Dialog, Druid, MDI, MessageBox,
...GNOME 2.0 should be released at the beginning of 2002, with a
new API. Gnome-- will probably then be renamed to gnomeui-- and
updated for the new GNOME 2 API. The Gnome-- name may be used to
refer to the whole collection of GNOME C++ bindings, including
Gtk--, gnomeui--, libglade--, GConf--, ORBit/C++, etc, which might
be available as one umbrella package."
