The Future of XView

    XView is no longer a Strategic Direction for Sun.  It will be supported
    for the next few years, but new features will not be added.
    On the other hand, the source is publicly available.
    XView is included with SunOS and Solaris, and also with some versions
    of Linux.

    Sun will be moving to a motif-like user interface in 1995, with the
    shipping of COSE/CDE.  At that time, XView will be less interesting to
    many people.

    Since it's probably the easiest X toolkit to use that's easily and
    widely available, XView will probably be widely used for a while.
