Re: What languages/toolkit to use for the new GUI?

I have been thinking about implementing the system in python. It has
mature XML and SQL libraries, and also would be a more easy to learn
language for people to write extensions to the GUI client. Any
components that prove to be very inefficient in python could always be
written in C. The only issue with it is getting the python interpreter
on the system. I believe that it is possible to create a standalone
executable that will parse the files without requiring that python be
installed separately.

5. Version 3.81 has about 22 classes.

8. Qt the only visual lib that has true cross-platform. It's realy work in
ms windows.

8. I vote for C++/Qt.
