Tabs are also ready. For the console it's completely finished; for GTK I
have to make the latests modifications. For Lesstif and Athena I just found
some notebook widgets, and have to learn how to use them.
Um. What sort of tabs? Last time I tuned in (some time ago), people had
very different ideas about how tabs should work.
For my part, I presently have a half-formed notion they should be
another dimension for emacs window splitting along with horizontal and
vertical, and therefore an aspect of window configurations. Notably, I
don't have any working code though.
Another option which I looked into at one stage was toplevel-only tabs
that collected and switched between whole emacs frames. i.e. tabs
"outside" frames. The gtk+ notebook container widget model was
particular suitable for that approach IIRC, as it was sort of emulating
a tabbed window manager internal to gtk+, and gave you drag-drop and
rearrangement for "free", but I eventually thought the window splitting
model was more emacsy and general.
The one thing I really don't like is the idea of tabs-as-list-of-buffers
- simply doesn't scale well to even my typical open buffer count (10s
rather than 100s.), and is a waste of what could be a more versatile ui
feature for the likes of IDE-type modes.
Or maybe you meant buffer-embedded emacs tab/notebook widgets, an
entirely different matter and independent of the other kind of
