Amiga & AROS The AROS team has published a new status update with a list of improvements. Another important step in AROS customization has been done. Darius Brewka and Georg Steger have added a new decor system to Wanderer, allowing user to edit and change themes. Damir Sijakovic's ICE theme has been used as an example and it is now the default theme for AROS nightly builds. In addition, a USB keyboard driver has been committed, among other things.

Could it be that what you want to say is why does wanderer (clearly not a GUI toolkit) draw its own scrollbars? That is at least the most obvious thing to me.

The basic design should be (many of you already know this), inside out:

1. Window server (takes care of drawing, windows, blah, blah)
2. GUI toolkit (base for all controls, and a standard set of controls)
3. Wanderer

The best thing really would be to "fix" this and at the same time bring Zune (time for a new name change?) some upgraded looks. Maybe a unified theming system for GUI Toolkit and window decorations?

Don't take it as too much criticism, AROS is in a stage where any work must be seen as a good thing:)

That's more or less how it does work in AROS. The status update is misleading. Theme support has been added to the intuition library (effectively AROS's window manager), not to Wanderer.

Ah, wops, that does make sense. The "problem" then really is that Zune (the MUI clone) is separated from intuition.library. It would be really nice to see a marriage between the two with a common theming engine.

It is almost tempting to try it myself ;)

Exactly as you typed John, thats pretty much how things should work.
