The Windows Template Library (WTL) is now available on SourceForge. If you're not familiar with this library, it extends ATL and it's great for building Windows applications.

Project: Windows Template Library (WTL)
Windows Template Library (WTL) is a C++ library for developing Windows applications and UI components. It extends ATL (Active Template Library) and provides a set of classes for controls, dialogs, frame windows, GDI objects, and more.
The Code Project has a great WTL Page that has tons of examples.
