AWT Enhancements

In 1.1, we aimed at solving some major AWT (Abstract Window Toolkit) deficiencies, with a strong focus on quality and performance. The AWT enhancements include the beginnings of a richer infrastructure for larger-scale GUI development, including APIs for printing, easier/faster scrolling, popup menus, clipboard (copy/paste), cursors per component, a delegation-based event model, imaging and graphics enhancements, and more flexible font support for internationalization. Additionally, the Windows (Win32) version of AWT was completely rewritten for improved speed, quality, and consistency with the other platforms.

Keep an eye on The AWT Home Page for the latest information about the AWT, including bug workarounds, examples, and links to the best sources of information.
