Thanks Doug by your response!.

I will try with your advices.

Yes, sure. Of course, I will see the documentation when is ready.

version in a few months.

ok, Thanks to comment that. I will be looking forward the next version to
start production works.

> The second warning is that the goal for BobsUI is to be able to write
business applications in it,  [...SNIP...]

Cool!. Is exactly that I'm searching/needing (To build Business
Applications). Actually I'm trying to develop a customized app that must
works with oldest dbfs (foxpro MS/DOS) legacy data. I'm managing the data
with ODBC from Diego Gomez Deck and I was planning to use BobsUI to develop
the GUI.

Then I will have a fully functional application in Smalltalk (Squeak), pure
objects, and running in Windows and Linux.

You have plans to release the new stable version around June 2003 or before?

I think that I can put this mail (your response to mine) in the swiki, is a
good starting point for the newbies, what do you think?

Again, Thanks by your response and I will be looking forward the new
