Progress with Windows Gnocl....

After spending the bank holiday weekend at my daughter's house in the cold and wind doing a whole pile of DIY (building a wall and painting) it's sure is nice to sit down oncemore in front of a whining, warm workstation. 

The momentum is gathering now to get a release of Gnocl 0.9.95 running on windows. The modification of the makefiles and testing is being undertaken by Luis Alejandro Muzzachiodi and so far so good. 

I’m now in the process of replicating his build on my old banger of a WindowsXP driven laptop. I’ve also downloaded the Gtk theme selector app from Sourceforge and, I must say, Gnocl can now look very windows like. The fileselector dialogs are not native but it wouldn’t be too difficult (I guess) to add support for native dialogs. I’ll post some comparative screenshots soon.

Finally, I did a little more on the printer support libraries. Worked on the gnocl::pageSetup command. I think is pretty obvious from the name what this widget will do!
