House keeping...

Although I should have spent my time doing other things, I’ve spent most of the day working on tidying up the installation of the Gnocl Canvas and Gnome packages. I can see why these were included with the original distribution, Tk, for instance has an integral canvas widget and so emulating a Gtk+ version of Tk would suggest such an approach. The Gtk+ widget set, however, does not have a native canvas widget. This is purely a Gnome object. The building of these items does rely upon Gnocl functionality however, and so rather than including any future gnocl related item under the gnocl source tree, it makes more sense to me to place build libraries and included in the ‘ standard places’ and allow each new package to be developed independently. I’ve brought the Canvas package up to date and have still only a small amount to finish on the gnome package which I expect to upload later this week.
