    nice work, is it possible to get the menubar stuff to look better? like no that pseudo-3d block that's there now?

  • At 3:54 PM, Blogger Tom Jenkins said…

    Yes, that's just tk's menu buttons. I will develop my own that will look just as lovely as the menus! :)

    Thank you for the comment.
    But please please please can people leave their name so I know who I'm talking to!!

    Just a question, will this new GUI be easily customizeable / themeable?

    Or do the user need to play around with the code inorder to theme it?

    Hi Pete,
    If I understand what you are asking, then the answer is yes. I am aiming for:
    * user is able to change the position of toolbars, and to customise their content.
    * the gui is skinnable, ie it's appearance can be changed by making it use different pixmaps - in Amsn, this will be done through skins.

    Hope that helps.

    Hey Tom!

    It's Alberto. Awesome work, really. I'm speechless watching such a change in our UGLY toolkit. It looks really nice and professional and there is no clue about the underlying toolkit. Having looked at your previous work, I suppose they will be abstracted, quite object oriented (as much as Tcl lets us), and easily skin-able (you are a skin maker).

    We really needed somebody willing to do this, so keep up the good work dude!

    Oh. My. God.
    It is GREAT! More, it's STUNNING! Really looking forward to try it!
    I had a look at the source of aMsn and I must say I really dislike Tcl/Tk syntax and its gui :D
    The work you (and the aMsn core dev team) are doing it's ubelievable. Keep it up!
    And move on! We want to see it soon on our desktops! LOL!
