First GNUstep Renaissance Public Release. 13

Christopher "CJayC" Jenkins writes "Nicola Pero recently announced on the discuss-gnustep mailing list the public release of his GNUstep Renaissance software, which allows for user interfaces utilizing the GNUstep and Apple Cocoa APIs to be specified in XML. While still alpha-quality code, it can be used at the present to replace .nib (and .gorm and .gmodel) files with .gsmarkup files, which can be easily edited by hand. "

The source code can be checked out of the GNUstep CVS repo:

    first off, Real OpenStep (from NeXT) is/was available for Windows. While the core gnustep libraries are mature, useable, and reportedly faster than Cocoa, the GUI part is not.

    Additionally, GTK, QT, and GNUstep are all varying degrees of X-independent... QT has QT embedded as well as QT for Windows and MacOS. GTK is available for Windows (though, why?), but GNUstep has a raw xlib backend, a postscript backend (eg ghostscript + XWindows), or a Windows backend.
