I came from the Atari 68k world. Disapointed about the demise of 68k homecomputer-systems I thought the creation of a shared libray that ports the GEM-API to Linux x86 would be a nice thing.
My imagination was that the combination of GEM and Linux could build a nice alternative to Windows.
I have posted this idea 2008 on atari.org.
But considering the deficiencies of the GEM graphical user interface for programmers I realize that it was time for something new.
I decided to create Geeonx as a new, simple and lean GUI-system that should do all window and screen updates for the programmer.
Following this new approach I have started to develop a complete new API for a GUI.
After some years of programming work the Geeonx shared library and the GUI-tool Geeonx Creator are ready for download in regard to Linux x86 32 and 64 bit.
With the call of the function gee_draw_all_objects() the whole interface of a Geeonx application will be updated.
I hope programmers will have fun with Geeonx and enjoy Geeonx programming.
