Dear Community,
During this iteration I have continued to work on the tutorial,
improving documentation, working on issues and assuring CLIM II
specification compatibility.
Most notable change is that argument type in `define-command` is not
evaluated (but if it is quoted it still works for backward
compatibility reasons). I've also started some refactor of the
`frames` module implementation.
Tutorial work takes some time because I try to fix bugs when I
encounter them to make the walkthrough as flawless as possible. While
I'm not overly satisfied with the tutorial writing progress and its
current shape, this work results in benefit of improving the code and
the documentation.
Documentation "Demos and applications" chapter has been updated to
reflect the current state of the code base. Some additional
clarifications about the pane order and pane names are added to
it. I've updated the website to include the external tutorials and
include the `Guide Tour` in the `Resources` section. Manual has been
updated as well.
The rest of the time was spent on peer review of the contributions,
merging pull requests, development discussions, questions on IRC and
other maintenance tasks.
Alessandro Serra has created a `Raster Image Backend` – backend
similar to `PostScript`, but having `png` as its output. See "Drawing
Tests" in `clim-examples` and chapter "Raster Image backend" in the
Manual.
A detailed report is available at:

If you have any questions, doubts or suggestions – please contact me
either with email (daniel@turtleware.eu) or on IRC (my nick is
`jackdaniel`).
Sincerely yours,
Daniel Kochmański
