Inti 1.2 Release Candidate 1

Application

Inti 1.2 - Release Candidate 1

Description

The Integrated Foundation Classes, are a set of C++ classes for developing Gnome and GTK+ applications on UNIX-like systems such as Linux. They are designed to work nicely with the GNU toolchain and take advantage of the standard C++ features provided by the GNU compiler. Currently there are two modules, the core application development platform Inti and a binding for the Gnome Configuration System Inti-GConf.

Inti combines the power of GTK+ and the power of C++ into a state-of-the-art GUI toolkit that makes developing applications easy, intuitive and efficient. There are more than 400 classes that wrap most of the objects found in the ATK, GDK, GDK-PIXBUF, GLIB, GTK and Pango libraries. It has its own system of signals and slots which make using native GTK signals or creating your own signals easy. There is a standard string compatible UTF-8 string class, a full set of simple example programs, a C++ version of the GTK+ demonstration program, extensive reference documentation and a tutorial.

Enhancements

  • Several Gdk and Gtk API improvements.
  • Added wrapper classes for most of the remaining GLib structs.
  • Added Thread support and several thread examples and tests.
  • Added a thread section to the Inti tutorial.
  • Added some missing UTF-8 String methods.
  • Improved the appearence of the reference documentation.

Fixes

  • Removed all the obselete boolean is_xxx() widget methods.
  • Changed several String function declarations to static class members.
  • Fixed broken widget child properties
  • Fixed a segfault in Gtk::TextIter forward and backward search methods.

gnome-panel 2.3.6
gnome-session 2.3.6
gnome-desktop 2.3.6

Hey,

What are they ?

gnome-panel contains the GNOME panel which is the area on your desktop from which you can run applications and applets, and perform other tasks.

gnome-session contains the GNOME session manager, the GNOME session manager configuration program and several other session management related utilities and the GNOME session manager proxy, which handles basic session management for applications that do not support XSMP.

gnome-desktop contains the libgnome-desktop library which contains APIs that really belong in libgnome[ui] but have not seen enough testing or development to be considered stable. It also contains documents installed as part of the core GNOME distribution, e.g. the GPL, GNOME's .desktop files, the gnome-about program, some manpages and GNOME's core graphics files and icons.
