Thanks for the report. gdiplus.dll became a new dependency
in 1.9.3 with the addition of the GraphicsContext classes
for antialiased drawing. We build and test on Win XP where
it’s always available, and didn’t realise it wasn’t
included in a default install of W2K. However it seems it
can downloaded and installed for free on 2000, and is often
required by other apps.
OK, I’ll look into getting it on Win2K. 1.9.4 did indeed run
out-of-the-box on my WinXP machine.
Zyps looks a fascinating project, perhaps the most
interesting I’ve seen in Ruby GUI programming. I’m keen to
try it out; do let me know when there’s a release, or even
when it’s runnable from SVN with wxRuby.
Thanks for the kind words. The library demo is runnable - just check
out HEAD (rev. 193), cd to the working copy, and say:
$ set RUBYLIB=lib
$ ruby bin/zyps_demo
…or the equivalents for your OS. You’ll be gratified to know I’m
getting far better framerates from wxRuby than I was with Ruby-Gnome2.
