There's DWT . But it doesn't currently get any updates besides
from make sure it works on the latest compiler.
One of the issues is that some will prefer a native GUI that
follows the conventions on a given platform and looks and behaves
slightly different across the supported platforms. But some will
prefer a non-native custom GUI that looks the same on all
There might not be enough people in the community that are
interested in implementing GUI applications.
