Provides a toolkit-independent API for building interactive GUIs. At least one of the 'gWidgetsXXX packages', such as gWidgetstcltk, needs to be installed. Some icons are on loan from the scigraphica project < http://scigraphica.sourceforge.net>.

NEWS for gWidgets
fixes to variables to get working with pmg
fixes to ggenericwidget to work with tcltk
added some error checking on input arguments
added do.buttons argument to gbasicdialog
modify [ method for glayout. Returns object, list of objects or matrix of objects
deprecated .fixFontMessUp -- was giving issues in the toolkit. From now on fonts are specified in appropriate way (see ?font)
font(gtext_object) <- value will set for entire buffer if no selection. Aslo gtext(---, font.attr=c(...)) will set font attributes for buffer, not just initial text.
remove popup when no toolkits are installed.
fix to ggenericwidget and cli
fixes to the ghelpbrowser GUI. This works -- and looks -- much better under tcltk, RGtk2. (Under rJava it is still awfule).
added new function installing_gWidgets_toolkits
made svalue<- for gcheckboxgroup use logicals, character or indices; fixed up docs
added gseparator() in defn of gmenu, gtoolbar list.
started puting in RUnit test suites for better testingn of packages.
new gformlayout constructor. This allows programmer to define compound GUI components using a list (like how XML is used with glade, say). This is similar, but much more flexible and better layed out, than ggenericwidget.
Added gaction constructor to make action object for buttons, menus, toolbars.
Added tooltip<- method to set a tooltip for a widget. Should work with RGtk2 and windows at a minimum
to handle case with no toolkit, check with popups is made.
added toolkits to SUGGESTS: line in DESCRIPTION
fix to ghelp to work better under windows
added a tests suddirectory to inst. This allows the toolkit packages to run tests on installation.
Added parent argument to dialogs. If specified will located dialog in relation to the parent gwindow instance. Also changed "location" argument for gwindow to "parent" to match argument names. That argument still accepts x,y coordinates too.
added function gwCat to be used to give messages in toolkit. Set option gWidgetsDebug=TRUE to see messages.
added blockHandler, unblockHandler to API. Only implemented in gWidgetsRGtk2
names method refers to label for gframe, gexpandgroup
added addHandlerMouseMotion -- like mouse over, different from draggin drop action over an item
added defaultWidget, and defaultWidget<- for setting the default widget in a dialog.
