The biggest news this week is that Tcl/Tk 8.1 has been released - I urge everyone who can to test their apps against this release as soon as possible so we can all benefit from a stable baseline.

  • Good advice for people building multi-lingual applications. (see [L3 ])
  • Interview w/ John Ousterhout in Linux Journal (Issue 60)
  • Using the Xt-based Notifier in Tcl (see [L4 ])
  • Why Tcl is better than Perl (Warning: Perl users should take a sedative before reading)
  • Long discussion on using the Cygwin Development Environment for various aspects of building Tcl. (see [L5 ])
  • What's a good editor for tcl/tk? (various options discussed) (see [L6 ])
