Fresco (formerly known as Berlin) is a windowing system derived from a powerful structured graphics +toolkit originally based on InterViews. Fresco extends earlier incarnations +to the status of a full windowing system, in command of the video hardware +(via GGI, SDL, DirectFB or GLUT) and processing user input directly rather +than peering with a host windowing system. Additionally, Fresco's extensions include a rich drawing interface with +multiple backends, an upgrade to modern CORBA standards, a new Unicode-capable +text system, dynamic module loading, and many communication abstractions for +connecting other processes to the server. It is developed entirely by +volunteers on the internet, using free software. This project was formerly known as Berlin.
