Apprunner is Operational!

Tuesday January 26th, 1999

Mike Pinkerton of the XPFE group has written us to say that the new browser based around the XPFE and NGLayout has made its first steps towards life. To quote Mike, "AppRunner is up and running with toolbars instantiated from xul and working back/forward/home/stop buttons using the xptoolkit command architecture."

What does this mean? It means that the toolbars are starting to work within the application shell, they are instantiated via XML documents (XUL) and stylesheets, and their background code is created within the extensible cross platform backend they have developed.

if you'll settle for Dali, and are willing to run Linux, probably right away. most of the screenshots i've seen of the "Enlightenment" window manager have been pretty surreal...

(some links: <> one has screenshots galore, and <> is the official website not to be confused with the .com-domain site of the same name, which is all about hinduism or something.)
