I have been taking notes and collecting ideas for the following (unordered / not prioritized / incomplete) list of concerns in Squeak:
- Flaps (code clean-up, conceptual improvements)
- User-input events (extract from Morphic into base system)
- Etoys (code clean-up)
- Text widgets (code clean-up, conceptual improvements)
- Text/paragraph composition (extract from Morphic into base system)
- Tool support for UI-theme design
- Tool support for release manager
- Smart splitters (performance and configurable animation)
- List widgets (drop-down list, multi-selection in any list, multi-column trees, etc.)
- Error handling for bad Morphic event handlers (similar to drawing errors)
- Object Collection Tool (see inbox "Tool-mt.535" or http://forum.world.st/The-Inbox-Tools-mt-536-mcz-td4808731.html [http://forum.world.st/The-Inbox-Tools-mt-536-mcz-td4808731.html])

What are your suggestions / plans for 5.3 for enhancing the Morphic
user interaction expericence?
How do you think better readability of code could be achived?
