FOX is a C++-based toolkit for GUI development. It includes a rich set of widgets and includes layout managers, MDI widgets, and mega-widgets. FOX incorporates support for XDND for drag and drop, X clipboard and X Selection, watching other I/O channels and sockets, timers and idle processing, object serialization and deserialization, a registry to save persistent settings, and 3D widgets using Mesa or OpenGL. FOX emphasizes speed, and minimizes memory use by letting programmers create and destroy GUI elements on the fly. Widgets can connect to each other and pass certain commands between them, which also reduces the amount of code needed. Finally, GUI elements automatically update themselves by interrogating the application's state, so it is easy to maintain the state of the GUI in an application.
