Ultra App Kit was first released in April earlier this year and it provided a light weight C++ framework for creating GUI applications, specifically game development tools. There was one massive problem with that release… it was Windows only. With the release of Ultra App Kit 1.1, Linux and MacOS support have been added, making the tool immensely more useful. If you purchased Ultra App Kit earlier this year, you will get this update for free.
Details of the Update:
Ultra App Kit 1.1 is now available on our website and on Steam. This free update brings cross-platform development to our fast resolution-independent GUI toolkit. To download the new installers, click on your account purchases.
In addition to Windows, Mac and Linux are now supported, which means you can code once and compile everywhere to easily create cross-platform GUI applications.
Builds on Linux use minimal dependencies and will work on virtually any distro without any additional libraries to install. This effectively solves the Linux user interface problem forever and provides us with a strong foundation on which to build new game development tools that look great and run everywhere.
Additionally there were several bug fixes and a few new APIs added. If you want to learn more about App Game Kit, be sure to check out the video below.
