The plugin system between the WM and the applications is now finished. The WM can also correctly invoke applications. As soon as the window layout portion of the WM is fixed and a few simple problems are fixed, get ready for an alpha.
If you are a developer on this project and want to contribute, please reply to this post or send me a message before Friday. All non-contributing developers will be dropped on Friday.
I'm in the process of putting more information into the Forum, in the Open Discussion section. These documents will outline my plans for the project. Please comment as any constructive feedback is appreciated.
I put up a new mockup last night based on where I want to take the desktop GUI. As a tabbed and semi-tiling window manager, there is no need for a window list. The object in the upper left can contain four applets. One type of applet shows a drawer when clicked (drawers can contain icons or more drawers).
The founding documents are there to give an idea of where I want to take this project.
The Wizard Desktop is a desktop environment for Unix-like systems. This first release is a very basic graphical working mock-up. As a mock-up, it does not completely represent how the end product will look. It includes four very basic applications for testing purposes only.
