I've known about the GNUStep project for a few years, but wasn't ever very interested in it (sorry, it was because it was in obj-c). I read an article on linuxjournal.com (it was /.ed) that changed my perspective of obj-c and now i'm vey interested in it. I want to help out w/ the GNUSTep project, so I've started learning more about obj-c (coming from a c++ background) by reading that apple objc-c devel book you link to on the GNUStep Resources page. Anway, I've decided that to learn GNUStep programming i'm going to write a program that rips cd's and encodes them as oggs/mp3s (and then hopefully i will know enough to do real work w/ GNUStep). Anyway, i do have a few questions about where the GNUStep project is going:

 There are several projects going on about rip/encode:
 MusicBox: http://www.people.virginia.edu/~yc2w/GNUstep/english/
 Encod: http://s.peron.free.fr/GNUStep/
 And the GSBurn is for burning: http://gsburn.sourceforge.net/
 Maybe you are interested to have a look.
 All the GNUstep applications can be found at http://www.gnustep.net


3. what about font-aa? Has this been considered/discussed? It's not really that important to me, but it is nice to have IMHO.

 Both the xlib and libart/freetype backend support anti-alias.
 For xlib, set GSFontAntiAlias = YES in GNUstepDefault,
 it will use Xft.
 libart/freetype seems to anti-alias automatically.

 My little comments.


I think that's about it, thanks!
