Nano 1.0 released
RefNum Software has released Nano 1.0, a C++ framework for developing modern Carbon applications with the simplicity of Cocoa and the performance of Carbon. Nano provides a complete set of classes for application development, enabling users to build full-featured, extensible, and maintainable applications for Mac OS X using the C++ language. The framework features a HIG-compliant application+document model, C++ wrappers around every HIToolbox view, and an improved Interface Builder experience. Built around the native Carbon framework, Nano allows developers to create 64-bit Universal Binaries with minimal effort, according to RefNum. Nano is available for free under the open-source BSD license (system requirements were unavailable).
