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.

This project is currently a moving target, so it is available through the GNUstep overlay of Gentoo, not in the main tree. When the project matures this will change.

You'll find that the GNUstep packages in the main tree are fairly up-to-date.

one more thing. Do you guys dointerface usability testing? I mean stuff like how responsive the UI is? I've noticed when I try to highlight text gnustep programs will often sieze up for a few seconds. It gets really annoying and it's one of those bugs that makes using programs like Gorm horrible. If you guys want bug reports I'm happy to provide them as well but there's no debug output. If you can guide me to where I can report usability issues I'll make a few reports for you.

On my Gentoo+GNUstep install I have no such issues, and this is the first I've heard of it. So it's probably something specific to your system. There is one possibly related bug I could find that is Etoile-specific:

Running a particular GNUstep exhibiting this problem under gdb may be useful; tips here:

If you are running Gentoo, set the "debug" USE flag first.

Also, someone on the GNUstep mailing list or IRC channel (#gnustep @ freenode) may have some insight.

Yes, we do test things and usually selection is quite responsive.
If you don't start up the pasteboard server, the first time you do a selection there will be a delay since the system starts one up for you automatically, but subsequent selections are just fine (or should be).
