New Safari beta means new WebKit!

The install package contains the following files: The rich text editor in ecto3 is using WebKit exclusively, so I'm very happy with the new release.... The list editing is much improved, but I'm still using my code for it, since I feel it does a few things better.

ecto3 roadmap

The interface has been cleaned up, but does not look markably different from ecto2, but if you peek under the hood, it's a whole new world.... I will be using ecto3 heavily, hoping to catch obvious bugs and missing features, before I feel it's ready for private or even public testing.

What's next for ecto for Windows

And with the release of the new Visual Studio 2005 and .Net framework 2.0 I've also been spending some time converting the code base to take advantage of the new tool and framework.The new WYSIWYG editor allows the same kind of HTML editing as the OS X version.... In .net 2.0, a much better resizing algorithm means ecto will now resize itself properly according to the user selected fonts size.And finally of course, there will also be bug fixes!As soon as the app is in a decent shape, I will post some screen shots of it in action.P.S.

What's next in ecto for MacOSX

If you wonder why this is even necessary since you only need to set contentEditable=“true” to allow editing in WebKit views, the reason is that making changes to the actual HTML elements is not that straightforward.... To see what happens, try to edit the list below (just click in it and start typing or paste in some text, i.e. press return after a list item): item1 item2 That's not the only thing, what if you want to resize an image (including inserting resizing handles)?

Open for feedback

As I wrote in an earlier entry, one of the things I'm planning is to do away with drawers. Apple already made that move in Tiger (see, for example, Mail.app) and I think it would be a good idea...
