After a few days being quiet, I've got some more news for all of you. First, the bad news: My wrists are *so* sore because I've been stupid... coding while ignoring the habits that I've developed to avoid hurting myself, so it serves me right. Good thing that I'll be going on my annual summer vacation trip next week -- it'll force me to be good, but right now, I don't think that's going to be a problem.

Now, the good news: The last screenshot was a new way of accessing system preferences. I've got a new one for today. Once again, this is a screenshot that has only seen the crop tool to make it download faster. This one is a developer tool, but a very important one for the new desktop. I won't explain it just yet. What do you think it's for? Leave a guess in the comments. The only thing I will say is that it will be released later this summer when all the little projects are released all at once.

  1. Heh, looks like a package builder frontend? Simple, but looks good. Just an idea: Will there be a "installed applications" list?
    even a wilder idea: will each application be automatically checked for updates? :)
    That would be really nice, to have a general repository, which is globally maintained by the community and Haiku can place updates? Then the "installed applications" application could and automatically poll for updates.
    Some applications (firefox etc) poll themselves, but perhaps this is better done by the OS? (something about reinventing the wheel)
