OpenMotif 2.3 Beta Now Available for Linux Developers

Filed under
Software

The beta release of OpenMotif 2.3, the most significant version of OpenMotif since it was released to the open source community in May 2000, was announced by the OpenMotif Project Team. OpenMotif 2.3 includes major feature enhancements and over 25 bug fixes requested by developers of enterprise applications. OpenMotif is the publicly licensed version of Motif, the industry standard user interface toolkit for UNIX systems provided on more than 200 hardware and software platforms including HP, IBM, Sun, SGI, and Linux (Red Hat and Novell SUSE). This latest improvement to OpenMotif is a testament to the open source development process that a worldwide team of developers continues to leverage in order to provide the Motif community with the most current tools.

"ICS is the proud sponsor of the OpenMotif Project Team because our customers demand the most current GUI development tools which are only possible if Motif continues to evolve," said Peter Winston, President and CEO of Integrated Computer Solutions. "This new release of OpenMotif and planned future releases assure that OpenMotif will continue to meet the foremost needs of this sophisticated group of developers."

  • Due to Popular Request, KDE Neon Is Adopting the Calamares Graphical Installer
    KDE Neon maintainer Jonathan Riddell is announcing today the immediate availability of the popular Calamares distribution-independent Linux installer framework on the Developer Unstable Edition of KDE Neon.
