What is it
Grapevine is currently an inactive project. It would need porting to GNOME2 and it would need someone to take it over.
Grapevine is a notification framework for GNOME. It is starting to become
usable, even though there is absolutely nothing that uses it.
If you want to see what it looks like, look at
a screenshot. Grapevine is mostly
background stuff, there is a browse dialog which you cannot see in the screen
shot. Also status is given on the really ugly applet next to the foot menu.
4th January, 2001: Actually updated this page :) There is a release of grapevine now, 0.1, and it is somewhat usable now too. The UI is now a little better then in the screenshot and I should make a new one.
6th December, 2000: Finally update the screenshot. I've also done a bit of grapevine work lately (as opposed to spending most of my time on pong and panel). It is basically there for a first release and given some UI improvements I'll make a 0.1 very soon now.
3rd September, 2000: There is a lot of stuff working here. I really should make some screenshots. It still has ugly UI, but it HAS some UI at least.
18th June, 2000: There is actually a somewhat working version. It
now has bits of ugly UI, and does the communication, there is a client
library and it doesn't really segfault (well there have been a couple of
errors about refcounting going bad but I haven't tracked them down) One
of these days I'll make an actual screenshot.
Grapevine requires, oaf, bonobo, gnome-libs (1.0 or 1.2), gnome-core (1.2),
gconf, pong and gob.
Well it is on gnome cvs server, module grapevine. If you want a release try ftp://ftp.5z.com/pub/grapevine
