Fire v1.0

Bluebird released the v1.0 of the Fire UI engine under LGPL.

Bluebird released the Fire user interface engine under the Limited General Public Licence (LGPL). Fire is the GUI Engine of the Bluevibe Browser and has also been used in a wide range of J2ME Applications. It is a library that aims to provide a set of easy-to-use extendable components to j2me developers.

Source ForgeThe basic set of Fire components offer all the functionality of the j2me GUI components provided in the midp2 profile (Forms, Items etc) plus a much more appealing user interface, themes, animations, popup menus and better component lay-out. Check out some screenshots here and here. Fire does not depend on device or vendor specific parameters to layout its components on the screen, thus creating interfaces that look the same on different phones and screen sizes.

You can download the library and the available documentation from sourceforge.

 Bluebird will continue supporting the Open source UI Engine and provide updates on a regular basis.
