DUI
Is DUI dead? Should use it or better use plain GTK?

I think it's still active.  Ant adds/fixes features in the library every once
and awhile and brings it up to date with new compiler releases.  I cleaned up
some minor things recently also.  There were some bugs with tree views if I
recall that still needed fixing, though.  (LEDS is the main source of testing
for the library.  There are still a number of problems with it.)  That said, I
haven't heard much from Ant (DUI's author) in the last little while.

Hopefully, DUI sticks around for awhile.  At least, I hope it does because it's
provides a fairly comprehensive GUI toolkit; it's also one of the oldest GUI
toolkits out there for D.

You might get more feedback if you ask the same question on the dsource.org
forum.

nah. DUI is here to stay.
I'm using it for private projects.
I have new ideas for it.
My latest project will have a windows version soon
so the windows version will have to be working soon.

for the latests DUI version grab the dsource svn repositories
for DUI use  http://svn.dsource.org/projects/dui/trunk/dyndui
not the main trunk.
(don't forget dool, DUI depends on dool)

The main problem is that I'm desapointed with DMD state,
I'm always designing around DMD bugs.

there is a project on dsource that contains vanilla GTK+ bindings.

It would be nice if you update dui.sourceforge.net with the latest 
bugfixes etc. Me personaly don't like dsource very much because it does 
not contain (almost) any information about the projects. In other words 
it would be nice to provide some more info. Maybe the GTK version of dui?

You're right, I'll try to do it.

both 2.6 and 2.8 are good for now (dmd 0.131).

(leds on windows is almost here - thanks jjr)

You're right. Such information should be added.  Like Ant said, it's 
been tested with the most recent versions 2.6+ on both linux and 
windows.  I realize also that there's not much documentation for the 
dynamic gtk loader.  That might be useful since other projects may like 
to make use of the tool from it.

The gtk loader is easy enough to update for new versions of gtk as well.

Great!  I noticed you committed a number of updates.  I'll start testing 
things again soon too.

Thanks much, Ant.

don't bother.
I messed up something and now it won't compile on Linux.
it was working on windows.

Re: DUI
Another question, I don't feel like registering to DScource, so I thought
I might ask here as well. Have you decided now to stick to the LGPL for
DUI or is there any chance you might change over to something less
restrictive like MIT/X11/zlib license?

I want to go with something less restrictive.
but it's very confusing.
I want to include the documentation from GTK into the code comments
and I don't know if I can do it.
I guess it will be simple to strip the comments out if necessary.
I also have code copied from phobos (on dool) so I'll probably have to go
with he same license as phobos (GPL + Artistic - as I remember)

BTW
as far as updating the sourceforge pages I'll wait until I can compile it again on linux.
(the problem might be with the templates - but no changes there for many months
dmd is out to get me!)
