Window Managers The new 0.4 version of Etoile had just been released. Etoile intends to be an innovative, GNUstep-based, user environment built from the ground up on highly modular and light components. It is created with project and document orientation in mind, in order to allow users to create their own workflow by reshaping or recombining provided Services (aka Applications) and Components. 0.4 is a developer-targeted release on its way towards this goal. As a developer-focussed release, this predominantly consists of frameworks. A few demonstration applications are also included.

I would say the following Wishlist is an area which reveals how much GNUstep has to go to complete Openstep API compatibility, not to mention other wishes:

Thaks for the response, Greg. You've always been a class act.

The reason I brought this up was for visibility.

I used to get people pissed off at me when I worked at Apple and they could not give me one respectable answer, other than where is the business case/profits in it for us cocka on our PPC platform [still myopic as has been proven with the growth of skilled ObjC developers the growth of the developer community and future product development], and they've continued to act as if GNUstep is someone's nice idea.

Part of my venting was actually towards GNOME and KDE. The GTK+ devs and the Qt devs could have done themselves a lot of legwork if they had worked well with you guys long ago. The work on WebKit would have gone much more rapidly, but then again I'm overly optimistic and altruistic that people will occasionally spread the wealth, so-to-speak, of knowledge when it's a win/win all around.
