The Gallium Project-- This project has been submitted in response to the Task List entry:
"An emulator for Macintosh graphics calls on top of X Windows".
Authors: Jerome Slangen <jerome at slangen dot org> Abstract: Gallium is intended to provide a free (licensed under the GNU LGPL), portable and API-compatible Carbon* emulator for the X Window System. Objectives: It will bring to the Macintosh** community of software developers the possibility to port their Mac OS** 8/9/X applications to the de facto standard windowing environment of the GNU system. Gallium will act as a good citizen toward the rest of the community by integrating other complementary GNU and free projects such as GNUstep (OpenStep/Cocoa** framework implementation), Quesa (QuickDraw** 3D compatible library) and Window Maker (NeXT** inspired window manager). The first objective is to build an API skeleton capable of supporting most low-level graphical functionalities (using GTK). Later, it will bring the complete human interface toolkit and various other higher-level multimedia capabilities (using Mesa, SDL, FreeType and Festival, among others)._____
