---- Draft FLTK 1.1.5 Release Announcement ----

The FLTK Team is proud to announce the release of FLTK 1.1.5,
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.

The FLTK 1.1.5 release is primarily a bug-fix release including
documentation updates, fixes for 64-bit platforms, FLUID,
several widgets, and GLUT emulation, and fixes for several
platform-specific issues. The new release also adds project
files for Visual C++.NET and supports KDE 3.x icons.

FLTK is provided under the GNU Library Public License with
exceptions that allow for static linking.

Changes since FLTK 1.1.4 include:

	- Documentation updates (STR #505, STR #513)
	- Updated PNG library source to 1.2.7.
	- Updated ZLIB library source to 1.2.1.
	- Fixed VC++ project file problems (STR #476, STR #478,
	  STR #520, STR #527, STR #537)
	- Now look for 8 bits of alpha when the developer has
	  requested FL_RGB8 (STR #541)
	- The last line in an Fl_Help_View widget was not
	  aligned properly (STR #536)
	- The "search" symbol looked like a Q (STR #536)
	- Changed Fl_Help_View::get_color() to use a lookup
	  table to avoid serious Borland C++ 5.5 compiler bugs
	  (STR #533)
	- Fixed Watcom compiler warnings with FL/Fl_Widget.H
	  (STR #540)
	- The image class copy() methods did not always make a
	  separate copy of the image data (STR #539)
	- Fixed an edge case in fl_old_shortcut() that could
	  cause it to read beyond then end of the shortcut
	  string (used for XForms named shortcuts)
	- Added (unsupported) CMake files (STR #499)
	- Tooltips would not reappear on the same widget, and
	  the initial tooltip delay was not used after a tooltip
	  was shown (STR #465)
	- Fixed a compile problem with the Linux 2.6 threading
	  support (STR #483)
	- Fixed problems with 2-byte Xpm files on 64-bit
	  platforms (STR #525)
	- FLTK didn't handle the ReparentNotify event on X11
	  (STR #524)
	- The old source file "fl_set_gray.cxx" is not needed
	  (STR #516)
	- Fl_Text_Display still called delete[] instead of
	  free() in one place (STR #503)
	- The symbol test program did not handle the @+ symbol
	  properly (STR #490)
	- Fl_File_Chooser didn't correctly call isprint() and
	  isspace() when checking to see if the current file was
	  text that can be previewed (STR #517)
	- FLUID didn't compile with Borland C++ due to a
	  compiler bug (STR #496)
	- Fl_Positioner did not handle reversed min and max
	  values (STR #510)
	- fl_descent(), fl_height(), and fl_width() would crash
	  a program if you didn't call fl_font() first; they now
	  return -1 if no font is set (STR #500)
	- Added test/unittests to verify pixel drawing and
	  alignment across platforms
	- Fl_Menu_::find_item() didn't determine the menu path
	  properly (STR #481)
	- The build system now installs image library header
	  files in FL/images/filename.h so that FLTK programs
	  will use the same header files as the FLTK image
	- The build system now creates image libraries named
	  "libfltk_name.a" instead of "libname.a" to avoid
	  clobbering an existing installed library (STR #480)
