libxklavier 1.02

libxklavier 1.02

libxklavier delivers some common keyboard-related functionality in a form of high-level API to be used by applications like layout switching indicators, keyboard configuration utilities etc. The 1.0x series guarantees stable API for GNOME 2.6.x releases

Changes since 1.01

Due to the high demand, libxklavier is now able to detect the default xkb rules set at runtime. The option --with-xkb-rules-set is not necessary any more. Sorry for bother:)


Java-Gnome 2.6.0

Java-Gnome provides Java libraries for creating GTK+ and GNOME applications using the Java programming language. This is a truly free graphical system for Java which works on most JVMs, open source or otherwise, and has support for building applications with a full GUI building tool, glade; for existing GNOME application developers, it provides a convenient object-orientated API without any worries of memory management.

2.6.0 is the first release which we feel confident in calling stable and ready for regular use. We offer the guarantee of API stability - all future stable releases until 3.0 will be API compatible. In addition, we will only make additions to the API of stable releases once every 6 months (development releases will also be made regularly, with API changes). We stay in-sync with GTK+ and GNOME libraries by following the official GNOME Platform Bindings release schedule:

For more information, please visit our website or feel free to contact our mailing list dedicated to developers using java-gnome:

We look forward to helping new developers get started with Java-Gnome and continue our support for existing users. We intend to release an update to the stable series, 2.6.1, when and if bugs are reported and fixed over the coming weeks. Our 2.7 development series will follow soon - Please join the java-gnome-announce mailing list if you want to stay informed of future releases.=20
