Yes! Please check out

(make sure you try all three mouse buttons...)

It's something I whipped up in a few days of Java...  But I really
think Java is the way to go!!  It's system independent so the GUI will
theoretically work under all OS's.  MS is already causing
problems...but I don't think that's a show stopper.  Java is cool
too..  Better Object orientated that C++ (IMHO).  It's somewhat
slow but really not too bad.. and we could work out a Web server
based Octave...for education and demos!

I know some people had there heart set on Tk, but I really think this
will be more portable and in the tradition of Octave's cutting
edge...(I'd guess C++ was somewhat new when jwe started), and OO
design.  Of course, I know little of Tk so I'm prepared to be flamed..
but let's kill the Tcl idea's a minor scripting language.
