The first version of my widget set was based around a heavily modified
LPTK.  I then discovered the discontinued fpGUI and fpGFX projects.  I
tried to contact the original author to no avail.  The fpGUI code
hasn't been touched since early 2002.  After studying the code for a
few weeks, I came to the conclusion that fpGUI is much closer to what
I strived to accomplish with my modified LPTK.  A lot was still
missing from fpGUI though.

After a long and hard think, I decided to start my widget set again,
but this time based on the work done in fpGUI and fpGFX (after all,
why reinvent the wheel).  I also added to the mix some good ideas I
saw in Qt. So far I have completed quite a few things missing in fpGUI
and created a TODO list of things outstanding which should get it to a
usable level.  I also added a lot of documentation as I go (hell yeah,
a programmer that documents... smile) as there was no documentation
included with fpGUI and fpGFX.

So I guess you can say I am doing a version 2 of fpGUI.  :-)
