For Immediate Release1
Glendale, California, August 15, 1998 — The PandaWave announced today
it’s release of the YAAF Application Framework, a freeware C++ framework
for developing cross-platform applications.
What is YAAF?
YAAF stands for “Yet Another Application Framework.” It is a C++
YAAF is designed to allow the easy development of cross-platform
applications for the Macintosh OS, Windows 95/98 and Windows NT, and X
Windows. Written in C++, YAAF provides a basic core framework for working
with windows, views, menus, and controls in a portable fashion.

you may build applications using YAAF and resell them even for commercial
purposes. You may also modify and distribute the YAAF libraries, but only
as free software–while you may resell the YAAF libraries, you must do so

YAAF is currently used by The PandaWave as the basis for all of our
application development. From BugLink to World Calendar and xt, we are
using YAAF as our core technology for quickly developing cross-platform
applications. By “eating our own lunch”, so to speak, we hope to continue
development on YAAF and continue providing the YAAF libraries for free to
the developer community.
YAAF is available for download from the Info-Mac archives and from the
PandaWave’s home page at http://www.pandawave.com/yaaf/. The YAAF
distribution file also contains YAAF Constructor, an application used
for laying out windows and dialog boxes, and xt, a simple text editor.
Complete sources for YAAF, YAAF Constructor, xt and all utilities for
Macintosh, Microsoft Windows and X (compiled under Redhat for Intel)
