Below is a brief summary of new features available in v7.5:
GINO's latest driver is for generating animated graphics on the web using Adobe Flash (SWF).
Adobe's SWF file format is used for creating animations or movies within web pages. The Adobe Flash plugin is required to display these files, but Adobe now estimate that the plugin has coverage of over 90% of internet users in the 'mature markets'.
There are a number of tools available for creating these animations, the best known being the 'Flash' product available from Adobe, however most of these tools are aimed at 'arty' graphics.
With the introduction of the SWF driver in v7.5, GINO developers can now output high quality vector drawings to the web either as static images or converted to animations with very little effort.
GINOMENU Studio is a fully interactive GUI builder and development environment for the Fortran programmer. Application development is made easy with visual drag-and-drop design, fully integrated callback editor, coding-error tracer and run-time project manager.
GINOMENU Studio contains all the components required for building sophisticated GUI applications. Menu bars, dockable tool bars, status bars, data entry controls and graphics controls are dropped onto the design grid and then their properties can be altered showing you exactly what the application is going to look like. Code can then be added to any event associated with each control and this can be linked to user-code either internal or external to the project.
The project manager is used to set any compiler and linker switches and then the project is ready to build with coding errors displayed in a log window linked to the main code window.
To assist the program developer, the built in editor contains language-sensitive highlighting, argument popups and pop-up routine names to assist in all aspects of GINO application development.

a graduated colour along the X or Y axis together with an optional
colour bar as a key.
Displays a graduated colour bar
Returns the current colour scaling settings
Sets a colour scaling for 2D graph components
10 new routines have been added to this library adding the following
Extend the new cut and fill functionality added last release
with facilities to generate a complete cut and fill area by
adding spot heights, break lines and site boundaries to create
a second surface within an existing surface. Surface area, volume
and maximum height between the two surfaces can then be calculated.
Contour data can now be enquired directly from the gridded
data without having to draw the contours first.
Vertical fault lines can now be added to a surface allowing
vertical discontinuity between two heights whereby the area
between is ignored when calculating the surface to display.
New optional arguments have been added to the routine gsSetContourLevels()
to allow the specification of pre and post-fix strings to annotation
of contour heights.
The routine gImportDXFSurface() has been added to the GINO
library to import polymesh surface data from a DXF file. The
data returned is in a format ready to pass to gsImportTriangulationNetwork()
ready for surface display.
Cross Sections may now be drawn directly from gridded or triangulated
workspaces without the need to draw a contour map or surface
Returns 2D contour data relating to a

Returns surface areas and volumes between two surfaces
Generates a grid from random data with two sets of heights
Returns the data range information that is used internally
Stores gridded data in workspace to be used by other routines

Selects the 1st or 2nd data set that has previously been stored
13 new routines and 8 new optional arguments have been added to the
library providing the following functionality:
A new widget type has been added in this release which is
the spinner or up-down control. It can be associated with a
value entry for directly controlling the value.
RTF text entries have been enhanced with the ability of providing
HyperText link callbacks. A user can now click or double-click
on a string that has been assigned a hypertext font attribute
which will then generate a hypertext link callback.
For Windows XP users, documentation has been added to explain
how to utilize the current XP theme and mouse-sensitive widgets
with the appropriate initialization being carried out in the

the callback queue for particular types of callbacks and greater
control of windows messages is provided with the ability to
trap messages that are not being used by GINOMENU.
The resizing of floating docking panes is now permitted in
two directions by selecting one of the four corners of the widget.
A new optional property, gmTabList is provided to add or remove
a widget from the tab list. For Array Grid widgets gmTabAction
has been added to provided three modes of action for the TAB
key within this widget.
Two routines have been added to enable an enquiry and import
of data from an internal bitmap resource (i.e.. Bitmap, icon
or cursor). The data can then be used by the GINO routines gDrawPixelArea
