Learn the latest modern Tk features so you can make better GUI's.
This site is here to supplement the existing documentation available for Tk, especially focusing on the innovations
found in Tk 8.5 and beyond. This "newer" Tk is so much better than the
old and cruddy "classic" Tk you may be familiar with, and this
site makes it fast and easy to learn what you need.
For some more on the "what" and "why" of this site, have a peek at the about page.
Tk 8.5.19 & Tk 8.6.6 Released.
Tk 8.5 contains an entirely new themed widget set. Latest patch released February 2016.
Tk 8.6 has several modest improvements on the Tk front. Latest patch released July 2016.
With over a dozen years of maturity under its belt, Tk 8.5 (if not 8.6) should be for most people the Tk version of choice. Despite how much of a step forward 8.5 is, remember that people just running their older Tk programs in the new version won't notice much of a difference. Programs will have to switch from the "classic" Tk widgets to the new themed "ttk::" widgets. Luckily this isn't that hard to do at all, but people need to be made aware the new stuff is there.
