New 0.417 Release of Caml/Tk 2. New 0.417 Release of MMM 3. Version 1.02 of the CamlImages library The news! The news!: 1. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ New 0.417 Release of Caml/Tk We are pleased to announce the new 0.417 version of Caml/Tk. It is a bug fix and up-to-date version of Caml/Tk that runs with Tcl/Tk 8.0/8.3 and the 3.01 version of the Objective Caml compiler. CamlTk home page is http://pauillac.inria.fr/camltk/ CamlTk source files can be found at ftp://ftp.inria.fr/cristal/ Minor changes: -- the widget compiler has been revised not to generate warnings. -- the japanese support has been fixed for Tk8.0. Enjoy. Jun P. Furuse && Pierre Weis. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ New 0.417 Release of MMM What is MMM ? ------------- MMM is a Web Browser entirely written in Caml by François Rouaix. It has some cool features, such as its low memory footprints (well not so low in fact), its Caml applet system, its automatic HTML 3.2 checking and editing facility. In addition, it is safer than usual browsers since it does not support Java. On the other hand MMM has some drawbacks, such as the lack of Java support, its bad support for frames, and its terrible way of handling tables. Why using MMM ? --------------- Anyway, MMM has some fervent supporters in the Caml community; in the first place because it proves that some non trivial programs such as a browser that must use a complex graphical interface can be written in our favorite functional language; also because it never crashes. More importantly, we love MMM for its ability to detect ``uninteresting'' pages: normally extremely fancy pages cannot be displayed at all by MMM. So, you gain some of your precious time by just looking at another, more interesting, corner of the Web! An additional way of using MMM is to verify that your WEB pages are not too ``my browser only'': if your pages are displayed correctly by MMM, it is a good indication that they will be displayed the same with other browsers. The new release: ---------------- We are pleased to announce the new 0.417 version of MMM. It is a bug fix and up to date version of MMM that runs with Tcl/Tk 8.0 or later and the 3.01 version of the Objective Caml compiler. MMM home page is at http://pauillac.inria.fr/mmm/ MMM source files can be found at ftp://ftp.inria.fr/INRIA/Projects/cristal/mmm/ Minor changes: -- update the applets system for the 3.01 version of Objective Caml. Enjoy MMM. Jun P. Furuse && Pierre Weis. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 3. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Version 1.02 of the CamlImages library, by Jun Furuse, François Pessaux, and Pierre Weis, is now available. CamlImages is an image processing library, which provides to the objective Caml programmer: ** basic functions for image processing and loading/saving various image file formats (hence providing a translation facility from format to format), ** an interface with the Caml graphics library that allows to display images in the Graphics module screen and to mix them with Caml drawings, ** a freetype interface, integrated into the library: you can draw texts into images using any truetype fonts, ** a set of example programs, including gif animation, slide show, postscript converter to print images.
