In 1995, active support for Garnet at CMU was dropped as key people moved on and development focus shifted.
The toolkit itself, however, is quite feature complete and stable. It's features include:
* Toolkit intrinsics:
- A custom object-oriented programming system which uses a
- A graphics layer that hides the differences between X/11 and Macintosh.
- Automatic constraint maintenance: so properties of objects can depend on
properties of other objects, and be automatically re-evaluated
when the other objects change. The constraints can be
arbitrary lisp expressions.
- Built-in, high-level input event handling.
- Support for gesture recognition
- Widgets for multi-font, multi-line, mouse-driven text editing.
- Optional automatic layout of application data into lists, tables, trees,
- Automatic generation of PostScript for printing.
- Support for large-scale applications and data visualization.
* Two complete widget sets:
- One with a Motif look and feel implemented in Lisp, and one with
a custom look and feel.
* Interactive design tools for creating parts of the interface without
- Gilt interface builder for creating dialog boxes
- Lapidary interactive tool for creating new widgets and for
drawing application-specific objects.
- C32 spreadsheet system for specifying complex constraints.
