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.

Hello, Greg.

I've been following a few aspects of GNUStep Development from far away for a while, and it's nice to see someone that's immersed in this community so I can ask something:

How is the work going on porting WebKit into GnuStep (or any other good web rendering framework, actually)?

It's actually the one thing that pushes me away from GnuStep: I know I don't have the skills to port something like that, but if I could use it more often (and I'd need a good browser) I'd love to work on desktop applications using GnuStep, just because I enjoy ObjC ;)

There have been some stalled efforts to port WebKit to GNUstep. It is a considerable, tedious undertaking.

That said, a functional Haiku port was created rather quickly, so it should also be possible for GNUstep in principle.
