<http://www.halcyon.com/www3/jesjones/Whisper/Home.html>. I'm biased
but it leverages C++ better than any framework I've ever seen. It's
Mac/Win32 only though...
It makes heavy use of template callback objects, STL, standard
strings, exceptions, design by contract, XML to stream in views, and
compile-time type checking of events. Whisper 2.0 also has a COM like
object library that isn't nearly as lame as classic COM. I've been
using it to great effect to define widgets. It brings many of the
advantages of a more dynamic language than traditional C++ and also
makes it possible to write modular apps.
