There is a sample GUI library -- Windows Vision Library(WVL) -- by
Jinhao. He said that:
* WVL is a C++ framework providing the GUI, it gives you a simple way
for writing GUI applications. WVL is written in Standard C++, and it
is designed to be portable over multiplatforms, so you can easily
compile and distribute your applications on different Compiler/OS
Unfortunately, he has no time to maintaining the WVL. Well, it's just smaple.
