Now blogging at diego's weblog. See you over there!

look and feel, part 3


On the previous entry about my search for a different Swing L&F Mark posted a reference to JGoodies Looks. Nice! Another one to consider.

In another comment Roberto was wondering what are my thoughts on SWT (I've made some comments/references before on the state of Swing here and here). I have several reasons, not the least of which is that the idea of using an SDK that is more recent (and therefore more buggy) sounds a bit risky, but the main one is this: objects allocated in SWT have to be released "by hand". To me, this is unnacceptable. I don't want to go back into the having to find memory leaks. If they fix that, I might reconsider :-).
