Anyway, this is a start. If you have some ideas for a more suitable "About screen", let me know!
The GUI protocol now support various drawing primitives as well as drawing context features such as font, brush and pen selection.
Currently, it is only used by the status module, to a limited extent and the "About" screen. I expect to invest a lot more in the status module in graphical mode.
Now Linuxconf sports a different look. It includes a help menu with various options, including an "About Linuxconf". The button at the bottom of the tree menu have been replaced by a pull down menu featuring various entries, including a new "quit no check" option, which quit immediately without probing for any changes.
You can see a screen shot of the new linuxconf-gui at http://www.solucorp.qc.ca/linuxconf/images/linuxconf-gui.jpeg
Note that linuxconf-gui is featuring other gadgets and is fairly different from gnome-linuxconf. You may want to check it out (install linuxconf-gui and UN-install gnome-linuxconf). Once the GUI protocol is completed, those enhancements will be moved to gnome-linuxconf as well.
