OpenStep, GNUstep "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 (a.k.a. Applications) and Components. Flexibility and modularity on both User Interface and code level should allow us to scale from handheld to desktop environments." A new release. An actual one. Awesome. And yes, OSNews has issues with diacritic marks, so don't ask.

Is it actually usable in the state it is in at the moment? It seems to me they only released one module (EtoileFoundation) out of several... Can one actually build a working desktop from this?

Your desktop will have to be GNUstep for now if you want to try out √Čtoil√©, it is definitely a work in progress.

I'm just glad someone with actual coding skill is pushing for the same workflow-centric paradigm I've always wanted. This project is a huge step in the right direction.
