|| ||First public release of wxEmbedded|

I would like to annouce a first beta version of
wxEmbedded. wxEmbedded is the project name for
support for small devices in wxWindows (currently
mainly PDAs). wxWindows is a free GUI library
which uses native controls instead of drawing
them itself. Whereever a feature is missing,
wxWindows will provide its own replacement.
In the case of wxEmbedded, we use X11 as our
backend and since X11 has no controls at all,
we provide the complete GUI ourselves.
There is support for the GTK library as a
backend for wxWindows (both version 1.2 and
the new version 2.0) and if the GTK should
become the open source standard for PDA GUIs,
the wxEmbedded will switch over to its GTK
backends (or use both).
More info about wxEmbedded, including binaries
for a cross-compilation tool-chain with X11
support and screen-shots is available from:
More info about wxWindows in general:
Note that this is the first public version of
wxEmbedded and it is likely to have bugs and
not yet implemened features. Notably, there is
no socket support in the X11 backend yet.
