Simple Database Library
Ulric's Router Construction Kit
Plans for the future
Since neXtaw (and its relatives Xaw3d, XawM and so on) are not exactly
bleeding edge, there is no rush to implement lots of new
features. The library is mostly fine as it is, within the limitations
of the Xaw3d API. The most important thing is to keep the library
up to date, to prevent bit rot and make sure that it remains useful.
But that would be boring, and we can't have that. Here is, therefore,
a small wishlist that will be implemented as time and interest permits.
Anyone is invited to participate, either with these goals or ones
of your own.
There are lots of widgets in
Siag Office and other sources that would
make a useful addition to many applications. See, for example,
Ed Falk's survey.
Rather than adding them to neXtaw, which would make it incompatible
with other libraries, they should go into a separate library.
From the top of my head, this includes:
- The whole menu kit
- Combo widget
- Tab widget
- File selector widget
- Text field
- Tree widget
This is currently underway in the Mowitz project.
Features from elsewhere
- XawM has keyboard traversal.
- XawXpm has amazing eyecandy capability
- Aterm has fake background transparency
