|| ||Scw 0.3.0|
|| ||Mon, 16 Jan 2006 09:28:33 +0200|
I'm happy to announce a new release of Scw, the chat-oriented widget set!
(actually released last week, but..)
The release 0.3.0 includes the following changes:
* New features:
- support for embedded icons
- support for panning
- smart panning mode
* New API:
- "interaction" property
- "embedded-icon-size" property
* Win32 building (cygwin) support (Toni Willberg)
* Optimize performance (a lot in some cases)
What is it?
Scw is a library that includes widgets designed for chat programs.
Currently this means (but will be extended with time):
* ScwView, a view that has:
- Activatable text (urls, user names, etc)
- Embedded icons
- Pango markup
- GtkTreeModel implementations as data storage
- Different interaction modes (select, pan, smart pan)
* ScwEntry, an derivate of GtkEntry which adds:
- Simple input history
Python and Ruby bindings are available, Java-Gtk bindings are planned.
As a bonus feature, the widgets are guaranteed to compile and work on
the Maemo platform (used in the Nokia 770 that everybody is so
More detailed description is found on the home page of Scw.
Applications that use Scw
* Rirc (an irssi2 client, has been discontinued for the time being)
* Silky (is being ported to it in the REWRITE branch,
* Telepathy people are doing a proto client using Scw
* Your app here possibly? Let me know!
Where to get it?
