Mike Hibbett is improving tcp/ip stack and providing image rendering.
I'm currently working on html parsing and rendering.

The parsing is almost done.
Rendering of tables is at good stage (under heavy work).
There are only a few objects and properties implemented.

There are some activities where help is needed:
Performant 2D Drawing primitives.
Redrawing strategies (better if implemented, ideas are good, but...)

If you want to see the work in progress, click on the www button below.

Very good, thanks. Smile

Do you want to start in one of these particular tasks?

1) HTML entities rendering
2) 2D drawing primitives
3) Browser refreshing (challenging)
4) Edit box widget
5) List box widget

4 & 5 should become standard in the menuetos gui, i gues there is someone working on that and could you be more specific on the other ones? Razz

1) HTML entities rendering:
Until now we have the following:
Code:
html source -> object tree (optimized for rendering)
objects:        properties:
html
  head
    title
  body                width, bgcolor
    p         align
    table      width, bgcolor
       tr     height, bgcolor
       td    width, bgcolor
    

The idea is to write support for more objects and properties.

2) We have a raw bitmap to write into. The idea is to have good functions for drawing lines into it, filled rectangles and for scaled images.

3) Browser refreshing and resizing is probably the main thing that is going to make a difference with existing browsers. The idea is to regen as less as possible, reutilizing portions of screen. It is a challenge because the liquid behavior of tables and web pages in general. The object tree is to be optimized with rendering in mind, depending on resizing/refreshing mechanism.

4 & 5 closest ones I have seen are those of SolarOS but I'm still studying it.

It is a brief description, there is still a lot to do.
