Born and living in Austria.

AfterStep (ex)documentator and themer since too many years.

features missing :

  • ability to swallow any popup ... to b able to reproduce the windows 9x interface
  • composite - a plain killer with afterstep, if you could then access window as image(asxmlvar) stuff like the facade system of metisse would work through plain asxml files !!!
  • drag n drop support for wharf : i mean the ability to reorder buttons easily and on the fly
    also note that this is the _only_ feature windowmaker has that we havent.
  • sliced images in window sides not working

features "possibly" missing (don t ask- i just will not check if this works):

  • CoverAnimationType 12 crashes AfterStep
  • nested popups
  • wintabs
    • show no window if no app is swallowed
    • decoration options so wintabs swallowing wharfs could be used to emulate openstep
  • handing vars to popups and functions - needed 4 the dynamic stuff
  • gtk theme support in asgtk apps the normal/standard way. try a nice gtk theme like 23 ounces of glass...
  • multicolumn support in wharf that handles different sizes for buttons... as well as withdrawing to initial wharfposition
  • multiple icon boxes like 1.8 had (up to 5)
  • fullscreen handling vs maximized

- drag n drop support for wharf : i mean the ability to reorder buttons easily and on the fly

This could be achieved by having two keyboard or key/mouse hot keys. One to move a button up, the other to move it down. This as a normal control on the button that runs a script that alters wharf setup file and then reloads ? StepItUp 10:27, 6 May 2010 (PDT)
