The other thread is locked now, so I'll say this here. I do NOT think that the OS 4 port of OWB is crap. Naturally I wish that it would advance faster but, as a developer myself, I realize how much effort that involves, and how hard it can be to find the time to work on it.

Please don't abandon your OS 4 port. Like you said, it's highly unlikely that anyone will make a proper attempt of porting one of the other versions. Besides, continuing with the existing port would be more productive than porting a new version, even if it is from an Amiga like OS.


I sincerely hope that someone will have a go at porting gstreamer. OWB isn't the only open-source application that uses it, so having it available will increase other possibilities.

Another possibility could be for someone to help with OWB directly. I'm sure that things such as a download manager or an address book could be developed and integrated by someone other than Joerg.


Joerg has a donation tipping jar on his website. If you think that he hasn't done much with OWB, try digging up an older version, and compare its performance with the performance of the current one. It's easy to forget just how far it's come.
