Projects / JUCE


JUCE is an all-encompassing C++ class library for developing cross-platform applications. It's particularly good for creating highly-specialised user interfaces and for handling graphics and sound. The intended users are developers who are building large, complex applications in C++ and who would like to use just one clean, high-level API rather than a bunch of different libraries for different purposes or platforms. Its features include fully lightweight components with transparency and effects, classes for strings, containers, XML, streams, file handling, messaging, and event queues, vector graphics, a custom font engine, image manipulation, OpenGL support, low-latency audio I/O using CoreAudio, DSound and ASIO, audio buffers and nodes, MIDI file and event manipulation, Internet streams, undo/redo support, and more.

            Release Notes: It's been a long time since the last release, but in the meantime a huge amount of development work has gone into the library. The main new features include all Mac native code ported from Carbon to Cocoa, a framework for building NPAPI/ActiveX browser plugins, Webcam support, and an amalgamated build process to compress the whole library into a single .cpp file.
