Java-Gnome 2.5.6 (beta 1)
Posted on: 03/05/2004 04:00 PM

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, including support for glade, a GUI building tool; for GNOME application developers, it provides a convenient object orientated API without any worries of memory management.

2.5.6 release (2.6 beta 1)

Java-GNOME is now API Frozen. We have roughly one month to find and fix bugs, improve example applications and work on documentation. If you have been interested in trying out java-gnome, now is an ideal time - please try out our example apps and send us your feedback. We always try to help java-gnome newbies in whatever way we can. If you are experienced with GNU make tools, particularly with gcj/java,
we need you help - please email java-gnome-developer@lists.sf.net for details.
