No, it is different! It uses XML as native fileformat and needs an
interpreter of it's own! (kmdr-executor). It has many advanced widgets
like an editor (just bold,italic,underline and right-, middel or right
justified), a tree, a tab-widget and the usual stuff. It looks like a
4GL Tool. I had some problems with stability and I cannot read the
manuals, but version 1.0 should come soon.

Complex GUI's could be created, with several widgets on one canvas. If I
could find out how it works, it is may be an interesting tool!
