Week ending 8 October 2000

gstep-base (Foundation)

NSGAttributedString - store all attributes as immutable dictionaries.
NString - major rewrite for improved multinational-charactersets -
replacing concrete classes.  Change available encodings if iconv library is
available.  Tidy encoding handling.
Encode strings in archives as the abstract class.  NB. this change is not
compatible with old archiving code - running programs that use Distributed
Objects will need to be restarted.  Archives should be read and re-written to
update them to the new format (backward compatibility classes have been
added temporarily).
NSDistantObject - fix for respondsToSelector:.
NSProcessInfo - fix for FreeBSD-elf.

gstep-gui (AppKit frontend)

GSTextStorage - store attributes as immutable dictionaries.
NSWindow - fixes for frame sizing with deferred windows.
NSStringDrawing - added glyph conversion and removed unused code.
NSText and related classes - modest reorganisation.

gstep-xgps (AppKit backend)

font cacher improvements.
gpbs modified to ignore empty arguments.
Dragging fix for deferred windows.

GSWeb (WebObjects compatible library)

Many updates in readiness for (hoped for) release of GDL2
Various bugfixes and tidying up.

JIGS (Java interface for GNUstep)

0.7 release - support for selectors added - JIGS is pretty fully-featured
now.  You can create create a selector in your Java code, pass it to an ObjC
object, and have ObjC objects pass selectors back to your Java code.  This
should make use of NSControl and its subclasses pretty easy from Java.

gstep-make (Makefiles package)

Improve handling of detection of iconv library.
