From the WTL mailing list:
An idea of making WTL independent of ATL was going around for a while. I would like to know what is your opinion on this subject.
Personally I’d be over the moon about this. WTL is a superb C++ GUI library and removing it’s ATL shackles can only be a good thing.
The ATL link is historic – a leg up for WTL – and keeping it now isn’t helping anyone. WTL compiled on Borland or even GCC/MinGW anyone?
