The RAPID has a new home

From Oliver M. Kellogg we get this news:

The Rapid Ada Portable Interface Designer project is being revived and has its new home at: http://savannah.nongnu.org/projects/rapid/

He also mentions that the Tcl/Tk and Gtk backends have been updated to newer toolkit versions and that some other backends currently aren’t maintained.

From the Rapid website we get this explanation on what Rapid is:

RAPID is the Rapid Ada Portable Interface Design tool. Using RAPID, programmers can easily create graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for their applications by simply drawing them. RAPID then generates Ada code using a platform independent GUI library.

Oliver ends his post with this:

Thanks go to Martin Carlisle, the original RAPID author, for his
cooperation.

The Rapid can be found here.
