e4 1.0 M1 - New and Noteworthy

The ancients, who were our betters and nearer the gods than we are,
handed down the tradition, that whatever things are said to be are composed
of one and many, and have the finite and infinite implanted in them.
- Plato, Philebus

The first milestone from the e4 project (round 2) is here. We are always looking for new contributors, so if you see something that inspires you, get involved! Here are some of the more noteworthy things available in milestone build M1 (October 13, 2009) which is now available for download.

XWT UI Trigger Support One of the most common features of any modern application, whether web-based or client-based, is the dynamic aspect of user interface elements. These include buttons that highlight when focused or clicked, images that change when the mouse is rolled over them, text boxes that change color to indicate errors, the visibility/edit-ability of input fields through operator profile or/and data behind.

See XWT - UI Trigger (1) for more details.
