SWT running on Swing

News Log


August 20, 2007

Finally a release! The version 3.2.0005 is out and really is far beyond the previous one, with about 90% of SWT 3.2 implemented (was 72%). It also supports older JREs (1.4+) to a certain extent, which allows some SWT applications to run on OS/2 for example.

I believe now the work will focus on moving to SWT 3.3, and implementing the "10%" that remain.

There was quite a lot of work, and many fixes and improvements went into CVS (some based on Java 6 like system tray support).

I want to add a few more things before making a release, but in the meantime you can check the EOS website that rebuilt the eclipse plugin with the current CVS snapshot.

October 2, 2006

The release 3.2.0004 is available. This release is an important milestone, because it allows to run most of the Eclipse 3.2 Java SDK.

If you want to try it out, just download SWTSwing and follow the instructions in the readme file. Disclaimer: a few things do not work, the code is not optimized, use at you own risks :)

September 15, 2006

The release 3.2.0003 is available. This new release supports most of Azureus (using the real dispatch mode and tested on Windows only)

Note: like RSSOwl, do not minimize it to the system tray, or else you will have to kill the process.

September 4, 2006

The release 3.2.0002 is available. This new release can launch RSSOwl, and can also be used by SwingWT.

Note: for RSSOwl to work, prevent it from going to the system tray, and know that a few fixes are still needed to get it usable.

The SwingWT library is now able to run using SWTSwing.

SwingWT's SwingSet2 demo fully runs, and the ASM (Animal Shelter Manager) application is 99% working!

SWTSwing has a fresh new homepage: it is now easier to track the status and the progresses of the project.
