Hi Hannes,

those are all quite big challenges. Every single one of them might take me 1-2 weeks full time, which I do not have at the moment. ;-)

Yes, existing bugs in Flaps should be fixed -- but not re-designed as I proposed -- during the next weeks. That should be doable.

Best,
Marcel

Hello Marcel

Below is list of ideas you made early January about possible
additions for the Squeak 5.3 release. Quite a number of points have
been realized.

Could you please mark the one(s) you think which still could be done
in the remaining two or three weeks?

I will have a look at it as well in the upcoming days.
Good to see your focus on Text widgets / Text paragraph composition.

Maybe we still can do something about the flaps.

@ Tim : what are your preferences?

Kind regards
Hannes
