    2005/11/12 New Developers Kenneth Parker and unixabg are now part of the development team. More updates will be coming soon including plans for upcoming releases of vTcl.
    2003/08/18 Visual Tcl 1.6.0 released! The font and image managers have been redesigned and some menu items have been added that were only available from the toolbar. 2 more samples for creating/using megawidgets have been added. A summary help file is now available from the Help menu.
    2003/04/21 Visual Tcl 1.6 (under development) now includes its own BWidgets distribution. The preferences dialog has been redone using the BWidgets Notebook. New features include // Toplevel position can be saved or not. When the position is not saved, the Windows Manager decides where to place the window // Toplevel size can be saved or not. When the size is not saved, a toplevel window automatically adjusts its size to its contents // Support for tooltips // New project wizard // By default, an application now terminates when all of its toplevel windows have been closed. This prevents leaving zombie instances of 'wish' running.
