BabyX v0.2

  1. BabyX has got a facelift for version 0.2.

    Baby X is a C "baby" toolkit for X windows. It's designed to be just what
    you need to get a C program with a GUI up and running, without dependencies
    on third party libraries.

    I decided that it just wasn't possible to get nice GUI elements using native X fonts. So now the BBX_Label element uses Vera, which is a free font.

    That meant a total rewrite, though the API remains similar. Most of the widgets
    are now composite widgets, so they are BBX_Panels underneath. You then attach
    a pointer to the panel and hang the subcontrols off it.
    Everything could be built on top of panels and canvas elements, but I'd need to
    abstract away the X keyboard and mouse handling. Then Baby X could be retargeted
    to another platform quite easily.
    I've also added spinners and a listbox.

    It's now on Sourceforge.
