OK here it is: -standardized but user fully customizable GUI for each application (in progress will be in the next version) -standard fully programmable desktop tools like: * icon-system (implemented - will need some enhancements ie. user-custom-icons, app-icons , file-lists, not-stolen icons ;) etc.) *drag'n'drop system (implemented) *context-menu (in progress will be in the next version) *button-bay (implemented - enhanced features in the next SWIS) *online bubble help(in progress will be in the next version) -multiuser system/system of user's rights/accesses(will be added later) -system ports for each aplication(system friendly streaming/remote cotrol between aplications...)(will be added later) -video connection between different desktops(user A can watch content of desktop/app of user B)(in progress but will be added later) -system programmable keyboard handler (will be added later) -SWIS REBOL console emulator (in progress) -sound system for registered view/users only(I have to save some money for /View key soon(-: )(no key no sound (-: ) -snapshoting of the system(you should "freeze" your desktop anytime you want and saving the "system snapshot" for your future purposes (in progress - maybe in the next version) -pseudo-multitasking(threading) driven by system task/schedule priotity manager (you don't have to run separate rebol interpreter for each aplication-the whole system is just one rebol process!) (in progress - I'm not sure if I can manage it without more asynchronous behavior of REBOL - maybe it will pay to wait with developement till RT release next version of /View?) -detailed developer's docs (this is really very important thing (-;)(in progress - the docs will be available with the nex version of SWIS)

I was on holydays and then busy in my work(working on project in Macromedia Director :(( ) As I said, unfortunately REBOL and SWIS is my free time hobby for now:(( but nowadays I'm full of new energy and ideas ready to continue SWIS developing. I have some stuff done but I would like to make more improvements for next release. I hope you will see next release soon (2-3 weeks? depends on my spare time) While waiting try to imagine transparent smoked-glass SWIS windows with great design on your SWIS screen ;-) Have fun, Cyphre
