A GUI toolkit for Common Lisp

Progress report #2

Written by Daniel Kochmański on 2016-10-03 14:30

Dear Community,

During this iteration my main focus was targeted towards refactoring font implementation for McCLIM. Major changes were applied to both the CLX backend and the TrueType extension - fixing issues and improving functionality. A brief description of the TrueType extension is added in the corresponding system mcclim-fonts/truetype (in the form of README.md file).

The branch with mentioned changes waits for a peer review and will be hopefully merged soon. Since it is a vast change any critical feedback is very welcome:


In the meantime I've worked a bit on issue #55 (without great success), answered questions on IRC, responded to reported issues and merged some pull requests. I'm very pleased that we have a modest, yet constant stream of contributions - many thanks to all contributors.

Posted bounties have not been claimed yet and unfortunately we haven't found a second developer for the agreed price so far.

A detailed report is available at:


If you have any questions, doubts or suggestions – please contact me either with email (daniel@turtleware.eu) or on IRC (my nick is jackdaniel).

Sincerely yours,
Daniel Kochmański
