It has been a relatively quite week, with a lot of effort focused on getting the last few nits out of Tcl/Tk 8.2(b3) prior to final.

  • Call for Papers : Tcl2K Conference (deadline Sep 1 99). Please give serious consideration to contributing a paper - it is a great opportunity to not only share ideas but meet people who share a common interest (see [L2 ])
  • Get ready for the 7th USENIX Tcl/Tk Conference, Feb. 14-18, 2000, in Austin, Texas
  • Tcl/Tk 8.2b3 Release Announcement. (8.2.0 coming soon) (see [L3 ])
  • Various techniques for animating GIFs. Check out Msg. 6 for a neat solution to the speed issue (thread [L4 ])
  • Very simple example of using Expect via telnet (see [L5 ])
  • Obtaining stdout concurrently from an exec'd command (DISCUSSION) (thread [L6 ])
  • Invitation to contribute an extension for accessing the Win32 System Tray (see [L7 ])
  • i18n: a simple keyboard widget (see [L8 ])
  • Proposal for extending the package versioning notation to include "natural" version numbers, such as 8.2b3. (Part of a long thread) (see [L9 ])
  • Valuable site for information on using GCC on Windows platforms
