The GNUStep project
The GNUStep project is a free implementation of
NeXT's OpenStep API.
OpenStep is a crossplatform GUI-development API written in Objective-C.
The NSXKit project
The NSXKit is a project related to the GNUStep project but it falls outside of
the official GNUStep project. It is a free implementation
of the OpenStep API but it does not use PostScript. Instead it implements the
OpenStep API in X-Windows by using XLib.
The NSXKit should now be rewritten to become NSXKit-backend, which will make it a backend
for the official GNUStep frontend. I am not participating in this rewrite, as I have stopped
working on the NSXKit project - at least for the moment.
Other people related to the NSXKit-project are:
I have released a snapshot of the NSXKit. You can get it here:
install it you just unpack the file and follow the instructions in the
file INSTALL. Before you do this You will need the gstep-base-971102 snapshot from the
GNUStep ressource page
and my bugfixes to the NSAttributedString classes which can be found here:
Info on installing gstep-base is found in the gstep-base distribution files. When
you have gstep-base up and running you will need to unpack the file
nsattributedstring-971119.tar.gz. This will give you the files NSAttributedString.m,
NSAttributedString.h, NSGAttributedString.m and NSGAttributedString.h. Then you have to
replace these files in gstep-base-971102 and recompile/install gstep-base again.
Now you should be ready to install the NSXKit-snapshot.
