graphical user interface released PDF Print E-mail

OS SelectionFinally the Graphical User Interface has been released.

A lot of considerations have been done up to here, before releasing such a GUI, since we had to find the best solution with respect to quality/easyness ratio. Zenity gave us the possibility to “export” complicate bash commands and scripts to the final user and to put them all in a slim and easy to use interface. As we stated in many circumstances, VDD configuration/administration is not easy, so a Graphical User Interface which helps people involved in this task is certainly a step forward.

This first release is intended to be a “launching ramp” for the GUI development. Actually, other solutions can be eventually considered, like GTK programming in different languages (eg. Python for the portability or C++ for the performances) as well as other improvements be made.
