There were a few new software and resource announcements, and a couple of others we managed to sleuth up. Note also the addition of Scriptics' evangelism site in our regular list of resources. The addition of new widgets in Tk 8.2 is a good opportunity to try out the model where the Tcl/Tk core consists of the kernel plus loadable modules http://x1.dejanews.com/getdoc.xp?AN=437448504 The same thread also discusses issues relating to the difficulty of managing both packages and standalone binaries http://x1.dejanews.com/thread/436892970 The first beta release of TclPro 1.2 is available http://x1.dejanews.com/getdoc.xp?AN=437355045 Jeff Hobbs posted a speedup patch for the Tk libraries, cleaning up their Tcl code (bracketed expr, string compare...) http://x1.dejanews.com/getdoc.xp?AN=436728102 Andrew Friedl is looking for people to continue work on his TclOCX/AxTcl project http://x1.dejanews.com/getdoc.xp?AN=436892972 A new commercial GUI builder for Tcl/Tk, VisualGIPSY, is out http://www.prs.de/int/products/vg/index.shtml Stoian Jekov has begun an online Tcl magazine http://tcl.webjump.com/ TclFont allows you to create stroke fonts from Tcl scripts http://www.curvesoft.com/tools.html Everything you want is probably one or two clicks away in these pages: The "Welcome to comp.lang.tcl" message by Andreas Kupries http://www.westend.com/~kupries/c.l.t.welcome.html Larry Virden maintains a comp.lang.tcl FAQ launcher http://www.purl.org/NET/Tcl-FAQ/ Scriptics maintains a highly organized Tcl resource center http://www.scriptics.com/resource/ They also keep info to convince your boss Tcl is a good thing http://www.scriptics.com/scripting/ NeoSoft has a comp.lang.tcl contributed sources archive http://www.neosoft.com/tcl/contributed-software/ Cameron Laird tracks many Tcl/Tk references of interest http://starbase.neosoft.com/~claird/comp.lang.tcl/ Tcl/Tk Consortium can search comp.lang.tcl and c.l.t.announce http://www.tclconsortium.org/resources/ Cetus Links maintains a Tcl/Tk page with verified links http://www.cetus-links.org/oo_tcl_tk.html Findmail archives comp.lang.tcl.announce posts http://www.findmail.com/list/tcl_announce/ Previous - (U)se the (R)esource, (L)uke! - messages are listed here: http://purl.org/thecliff/tcl/url.html or http://www.dejanews.com/dnquery.xp?QRY=~g%20comp.lang.tcl%20Tcl-URL%21 Suggestions/corrections for next week's posting are always welcome.
