I¹ve just committed to the CVS a major update to the GRASS 5.7 display
manager. With help and advice from Glynn  Clements, I merged the functions
of the tcltkgrass user interface with the display manager. I¹ve renamed the
display manager the GIS Manager to reflect this augmented interface role
(though I haven¹t changed the file names, leaving it d.m, etc.). Along the
way, I¹ve updated the menus to reflect some new functionality (e.g., a pan
function has returned to GRASS 5.7 as d.zoom -p), added a couple tools to
the tool bar (erase to white and pan), and Œimproved¹ (hopefully) some of
the tool icons. Together, it makes for a compact, versatile, and powerful
GUI for GRASS. If you¹d like to try it on your current version of GRASS 5.7,
I¹ve put the entire updated dm package on my website

IMPORTANT NOTE: In order for this to run, you MUST have a version of GRASS
5.7 built after updates to G_GIS() on 25 August 2004.

Let me know if you have any comments or encounter any problems.
