Syllable, AtheOS The first development build after Syllable 0.6.4 is here, with the new USB and scanning subsystem. The project was contacted by the Python project concerning support for the upcoming Python 3, so far resulting in an upgrade of the Syllable Python port to the latest release version 2.5.1. Also this weekend, Syllable got a new window decorator in Vista style [screenshot], 7-Zip, UnRAR and UnACE.

CUPS has been working for quite some time. There is even a nice GUI for configuring your printer.

Things like CUPS & SANE aren't fully integrated yet though I.e. there is no way to print or scan directly from an application.

How easy you find it to develop on is obviously a subjective thing, but as long as you know basic C++ you'll be O.K. The API is pretty obvious and there is even GUI editor which takes some of the pain out of creating applications.

If you're interested I have started a series of developers articles, which will be published in the upcoming Syllable Developer Newsletter (SDN) and then will form part of our official documentation.
