FLTK is a GUI toolkit written in C++ that works with many platforms. The 2.0.x fork was started as an experimental rewrite, but although work continues on the new system the main focus returned to development of the 1.3.x version. FLTK 1.3.x now includes basic UTF-8 support.
The FLTK core covers a couple or dozen or so widgets - combo boxes, menus, file browsers, etc. There are also many widgets that are developed and distributed by third parties or just not ready for official status (such as f1_table).
The FLUID tool makes initial code generation for windows and GUI widgets a much easier task than hand coding everything from scratch.
