OpenStep, GNUstep The releases just keep on coming, don't they? The GNUstep live CD has been updated "The GNUstep live CD contains a lot of software for GNUstep, a free implementation of the OPENSTEP framework (which was also the base as Cocoa in Mac OS X)." The GNUstep page can tell you more about GNUstep itself.

Ten posts have passed since i made my query about the current state of the native web browser developement and not one replyin to it or even relating to it. As for those calling it ugly - do you even understand the principles of design? Over twenty years have passed since its introduction and yet not one of the following Desktop Enviroment have managed to surpass it for clarity of design and purpose.

I believe that Riccardo should speak to the point of Vespucci's maturity and usability. SimpleWebKit is able to parse webpages, but doesn't display them correctly yet.

A decent amount of progress has been made towards getting it to work. I look forward to when it can be used practically.

I had problems registering myself here.

Progress has been consistent, taking in account everything was done from scratch. Still, the power of Obj-C has been amazing.
Nikolaus has done a great job on SimpleWebKit. The library is available in gnustep daily snapshots. Vespucci instead is available as CVS from the GNUstep Application Project.

I would not call it usable yet, too many things are missing or buggy, but a target like "dillo" is indeed in sight.

The problem is clearly lack of manpower and interest from the community.

If you check my blog, status is usually reported there.
