I did not have enough time to do the whole job during the weekend and am
still working on a new version. The current status is: I removed the
dependency of the Windows-Registry and unified some of the modules with the
current Bluebottle system. Mainly about 30 Windows-specific Modules have
been left over and will be part of the core of the new PluginOberon variant.
Are there any concerns about removing the Registry from Oberon ? (I will
leave the possibility to read and write registry-Entries for compatibility
with older versions but remove the taking the Registry as configuration
source. Instead it will be exactly done like in Linux-Oberon and native
/ Bluebottle with a file "Oberon.Text". The name "Oberon.Text" can be
replaced by any other by a command switch).
Are there any requests for certain capabilities of the new PluginOberon
system ? For example: I like the Linux-TextGadgets(0) Interaction by Günter
Feldmann with it's cute scroll bars very much.
Will be on a Workshop rest of this week and continue working on Oberon
there but probably with no internet connection.
Still, one thing remains to be said: Emil Zeller did an extremely good job
with the Implementation of the PlugInOberon System and I am not going to
adorn myself with borrowed plums. I do not have in mind to exchange or
improve the whole system but only want to harmonize it with the recent
PS: When the system runs flawlessly, I will try out the the recent XML and
webDAV and give you some feedback, John and Edgar.
