Also known as the XForms library. This is a C library providing a toolkit interface over Xlib. It's been around for quite a while, and is still in use by several projects. The most famous of these is LyX.

XForms, while considered by most to be far superior to its contemporaries Xt and Motif, is showing its age in comparison to modern toolkits such as Gtk and Qt. In addition its current closed-source status is drawing criticism.

However the authors have stated they plan to release the next version under the GNU General Public License or similar open-source license.
