I mentioned window widget tool kit problems under Windows with 
Red Hat's virtualization management tools.  This announcement 
crossed my desk today.  Interesting to those of us who get to 
work in LOTS of environments -- I seem to have mis-remembered 
the toolkit being dialled out going forward (first changelog 
summary item)

Also mentioned:

the putty SSH sources compile and run just fine under Linux
