Welcome Aboard!

  We've recently had a couple more BeOS developers jump up
and offer their help with coding. Most notably Daniel Berlin
who managed to quash a number of nasties and also implement the
Zoom dialog. Unfortunately I've been extremely busy at work,
and my main contribution for the past while has been to fix
the keyboard input (which isn't totally fixed ... I've got
some people sending me the occasional dump). What I might
suggest is that you get yourself cvs hooked up, check out
the latest source (abi, expat, wvlib etc) and build the
latest version for yourself.

Things that we are lacking:

-Scroll bar funnyness --> Daniel was looking into this
-Pop up menus (right click) --> This should be a easy go,
                                but requires some grunt work.
-Dialogs, dialogs, dialogs --> We use Interface Elements to
                               design archived resources and
                               then re-hydrate them into real
                               life code.

If you have any questions you can direct them my way (or
to the list, read it every day).
