GKrellM 2.3.11 for Windows

(updated ) GTK+ GKrellM

Today I finally managed to release GKrellM 2.3.11 for Windows.

This release updates all dependencies to newer versions, mostly thanks to MXE which is the cross-environment I use for building GKrellM for Windows. I switched back packaging to ship with OpenSSL instead of GnuTLS since GKrellM was originally meant to be built with that and it actually happens to be smaller overall compared to GnuTLS and its dependencies. Finally this release starts shipping third-party GKrellM plugins that could be made working on Windows. For now the plugins available are:

  • gkrellmoon: moon phase
  • gkrell-tz: timezone-aware time
  • gkrell_sunlight: display earth and where it’s day or night

For downloads and other information check out the GkrellM for Windows project page.

Update 2021-05-07: All packages were rebuilt to fix an incompatibility of one of the dependencies that kept GKrellM from starting on Windows 7 (and likely earlier Windows versions). Please note that GKrellM is only tested on Windows 10 and compatibility with earlier Windows versions cannot be guaranteed anymore.
