SLgtk 0.5.5

Announcement

Version 0.5.5 of SLgtk is now available at

http://space.mit.edu/CXC/software/slang/modules/slgtk

Release highlights are given in the CHANGELOG excerpt below.

Description

The SLgtk package binds the Gtk2 and GtkExtra widget sets to the S-Lang scripting language (www.s-lang.org). SLgtk wraps almost 2200 functions from Gtk2 and its constituent libraries, includes over 4000 lines of sample code in 40+ working guilets, and bundles a code generator (SLIRP) which can be useful for building additional S-Lang modules.

SLgtk also includes a visual version of the powerful S-Lang "where" command, extensions to and performance enhancements for several GtkExtra widgets, and a pixbuf loader for the FITS image file format widely used within astronomy.

Regards,

-Michael S. Noble


Version 0.5.5 (03/12/04):

  1. VWhere 1.1.1 enhancements:
    • global prefs persist for all invocations w/in a single process
    • incorporates zoom factor while panning, yielding finer/coarser scrolling when zoomed in/out
    • added zoom-to-fit, which zooms in on rubberband selection
    • change cursor :
      • to a watch (e.g. when doing potentially lengthy redraws)
      • to a crosshair (during zoom-to-fit by rubberband box)
  2. Configuration/build enhancements:
    • script now aborts if Gtk 2.2 or later cannot be found
    • removed --with-gtksrc and --with-glibsrc options
    • lower end-user entry barrier by supporting release of binary distributions with module containing Gtk et al statically linked in (see new --with-gtk-static option)
    • no longer build static library and slgtksh by default for non-devel builds (they're mainly for debugging, and this saves ~50% build time)
    • code now compiled with much stricter flags during test builds
  3. Remove typo from src/slgtk.c (davis@space.mit.edu)
  4. Generalize utility scripts in ./test, for use elsewhere
  5. Added top-level test: target
  6. GSList* and GdkPixbufFormat* now supported as opaque types
  7. Nominal suport for g_slist_* family of functions (singly-linked list)
  8. New _gdk_pixbuf_get_formats() SLgtk func, like gdk_pixbuf_get_formats() Gdk func, except it returns an String_Type array of format names
  9. Bundle SLIRP v1.0.1, which is now available standalone. SLIRP enhancements will now be listed only within the SLIRP CHANGELOG.
  10. Added new convenience functions for setting axis labels:
    _gtk_plot_set_xlabel()
    _gtk_plot_set_xlabel()
    _gtk_plot_set_labels()
  11. Axis label backgrounds are now transparent (i.e. match canvas color)
  12. Added gdkpixbuf.h to SLIRP gdk.lst, for gdk_pixbuf_render_* funcs
  13. RGB image display widget (packages/rgbwidget.sl):
    • now based upon GtkLayout, instead of GtkDrawingArea, so that other widgets may be superimposed
    • generalized constructor, to accept EITHER distinct arrays for each r,g,b band (original coding) OR a single array (which, after normalization, will be used for each r,g,b band)

GARNOME 2.5.91

GARNOME 2.5.91

The latest release of this bad-ass, bleeding edge GNOME distribution for testers and tweakers everywhere - is finally released unto the teeming masses. If you're dying to test the latest GNOME code, but don't want to fall into the depraved addictions and co-dependencies of testing from anonymous CVS, then GARNOME is for you.

It has been updated for the GNOME 2.6 Desktop & Developer Platform BETA 2 release. Our version numbers now match GNOME's, because these days, that's what matters in the GARNOME world.

GNOME Netinfo 0.99.0

GNOME Netinfo 0.99.0 has been released

GNOME Netinfo is a network information tool which provides user interfaces for some of the most common command line network tools, like ping, whois, traceroute, etc.

It was originally based on Mac OS X's network information tool, but has since then improved over so much that it now clearly exceeds Mac OS X's tool with more features and a better UI.

This is the first release of GNOME Netinfo after being splitted from GNOME Network. Version 0.99.0 is feature complete, and will be released as 1.0 after some testing period.

Tarballs can be found at:

http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gnome-netinfo/0.99/

Mailing list is at:

http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gnome-network

And bugs can be reported to:
