I can say a few things, but if you're interested I can get you in
contact with him. Martijn does not have much internet access at the
moment, and he does not read this list but I'll pass on your message.
As far as i've seen and used it, WHAM is a very decent library to do
gui programming with. If you use the swham add-on (simple-wham), it is
basically a few statements to open a window and you can draw on it
using normal allegro functions. I have not used it much, but the main
reason is that I have never used a real gui in my programs.
WHAM is very flexible as far as I know, a lot of graphical trics are
available and if you customize it you can make it look quite good, and
basically any way you want it to.
Another good point I see about it is that martijn is alive and well,
and probably willing to help out with it where necessary.
As far as the project's liveliness: I think he has not worked on it
for a long time and in that respect it's dead. He told me he would
like to do a rewrite to make it more structured internally, but he
does not have time for that.
If you want or need to know more I can get you in contact with him,
send me an email at hein@... .

Hello. It's been a while since I posted and kept up with the list, so
please forgive me if this problem has been solved. :) Under GNOME,
whenever I run an Allegro program, when it exits, my taskbar crashes. I
have to go back to Applets->Utility->Tasklist to get it back, which is
really annoying. ^_^ Does anyone have an idea why it performs this
behavior? And any ideas on how I could fix it? (No, losing Gnome or
this tasklist app isn't an option, heh). With libraries like SDL,
everything is fine.
