From: email@example.com Date: Tue, 10 Nov 1998 16:43:27 -0500 Subject: ANNOUNCE: gxTar 0.0.3 To: firstname.lastname@example.org I am happy to announce the first public version of gxTar, a Gnome/GTK+ front-end to the common unix archiving utilities. gxTar is naturally distributed under the GNU GPL. gxTar is (yet another) Gnome/Gtk front-end to common archive utilities under unix. The goal is to make it the winzip of the unix world. Currently zip, gzip, & tar are supported with several others (arj, rar, bzip2) coming soon. Current functionality includes the ability to open archives, and to add, delete, extract, and view files. Drag & drop support coming soon. The current release has been tested on Linux with Gnome 0.30. It is also possible to compile a Gtk version, though several features are not present. The gtk version has been tested with glib 1.1.3 & gtk 1.1.2. Gzipped tars will not work on systems whose tar does not have a 'z' option, this should be fixed soon. Suggestions, bug reports, etc are always wanted at email@example.com The URLs: The main web page is: http://www.pobox.com/~gandalf/proj/gxtar/ A screen shot is available: http://www.pobox.com/~gandalf/proj/gxtar/screen.jpg The latest source: http://www.pobox.com/~gandalf/proj/gxtar/gxtar-0.0.3.tar.gz Thanks -chris (firstname.lastname@example.org) -- To unsubscribe: mail email@example.com with "unsubscribe" as the Subject.
