refNum Software have released Nano 1.1, a major update to their open
source C++ framework for developing modern high-performance Carbon

Nano 1.1 adds over a dozen new views, all of which are rendered with
CoreGraphics for resolution independence, and several of which were
previously only available to Apple’s own applications.

This release also includes over 30 improvements and bug fixes, such
as splash screen support or an Open Recent menu that supports groups
of items.

Daily source code snapshots are now available through Subversion, and
the svn repository can be browsed online.

Nano provides:

o A HIG-compliant application+document model

o C++ wrappers around every HIToolbox view

o An improved Interface Builder experience

Built around the native Carbon framework, Nano allows developers to
create full-featured, 64-bit clean, Universal Binaries with minimal
effort using the industry-standard C++ language.

More information on Nano is available from the project home page:


Nano is distributed under the open source BSD licence, and can be
used in both commercial and open source projects.
