libview library is a collection of widgets under the MIT license that we developed at VMware while working on Workstation 5. We felt they were general purpose enough to have value to the community. We have benefitted a lot from open source, and felt it was time to make a genuine effort to give back.
Our intention is for the libview SourceForge project to be the one place where these widgets will be developed and maintained. We will not be developing them in-house and pushing them out to the CVS repository. What you see on SourceForge CVS is what we're using at VMware. We will be adding more widgets over time to libview as we write them.
Most of the widgets are written in C++ for gtkmm. While this does limit the usefulness to many projects, the projects are free to rewrite them in C and use them.
libview 0.5.1 has been released. This version includes two new widgets, the DeadEntry (a Gtk::Entry that is greyed out when no longer editable) and UndoableTextView (a Gtk::TextView with built-in undo/redo support).
There were some additional bug fixes, and a few test programs have been added.
What's New in This Release:
An annoying yet amusing bug in view::FieldEntry was just discovered and fixed.
Depending on the delimiter used in fields, certain keys may were not allowed to be inputted.
In the case of our test, where "-" was used as a field delimiter, the character "6" wasn't considered a valid character.
