Article #801: FLTK 1.1.8 final version released.

Created at 15:21 Mar 27, 2008 by matt

The FLTK Team is proud to announce the release of FLTK 1.1.8, a cross-platform C++ GUI toolkit for UNIX(r)/Linux(r) (X11), Microsoft(r) Windows(r), and MacOS(r) X. FLTK provides modern GUI functionality without the bloat and supports 3D graphics via OpenGL(r) and its built-in GLUT emulation.

FLTK 1.1.8 fixes many bugs, improves OS X and Quartz compatibility and overall reliability. It adds a new GTK+ style theme, more GLUT4 compatibility, and alpha blending for image maps.

This is the final release of the FLTK 1.1.x development tree.
