Java-GNOME application is a set of Java bindings for the GNOME and GTK libraries that allow GNOME and GTK applications to be written in Java.
The Java-Gnome API has been carefully designed to be easy to use, maintaining a good OO paridigm, yet still wrapping the entire functionality of the underlying libraries.
Java-Gnome can be used with the Eclipse development environment and Glade user interface designer to create applications with ease.
Java-Gnome is part of the official Gnome Bindings Release, commiting us to high quality regular releases.
What's New in This Release:
Bugfixes and incremental improvements. This release series, collectively called java-gnome 2.14.2 and corresponding with the GNOME release of the same date, consists of updates to the entire family of java-gnome libraries:
libgnome-java 2.12.4, and
In the main, most of the changes are to be found in libgtk-java, our binding of the GTK graphical user interface widget toolkit. Some highlights include child properties on org.gnu.gtk.Container, and as ever JavaDoc improvements. A crasher was also identified and removed. Hooray!
Please note that you'll need the latest versions of each library (as expressed above) because of macro bugfixes that resulted in critical updates to the ./configure files in each tarball. These improvements will become apparent partiucularly if using GCJ to build native executables.
This release also introduces the bindings around GNOME's virtual terminal widget, vte
which is used extensively by the frysk project.
As you would expect, you can download the official java-gnome tarballs from ftp.gnome.org.
