They are here! ;-)

Another issue with this stupid web mail... (I'll probably switch back to my real development system now, anyway.)

Right; shouldn't be a major problem - it just isn't officially supported yet. (Or: *You* get to figure out what glSDL touches and depends on. ;-)

Well, I'm aiming for something rather "simple and clean" in relation to the problem at hand. We're not talking about some 5 different traditional widgets, but rather a dynamic structured graphics system with only a few visual objects, and some "behind the scenes" logic objects. Focus is on tools and "idea to solution", rather than the actual toolkit or related APIs.

I'm an LGPL guy. :-)

Well, remains to see how it turns out. They're basically doing a traditional toolkit, but I could probably reuse their portable OpenGL layer, as well as parts of the toolkit. (I'll still need the usual rendering stuff, event handling, etc...)
