JIGS works well with the current base library - that's well tested.  It's nice 
for non-GUI "server" stuff if you need to use ObjC libraries from Java or 
vice versa. :-)

It's never been used (AFAIK) with the gui library, so I wouldn't really 
advertise that
on the website.  And cross-language subclassing doesn't really work reliably, 
so if 
you're trying to subclass NSApplication or NSDocument from Java you may run 
troubles.  The Foundation API has almost no need to subclass library classes 
(extensions/customizations are done via delegation and similar 
methods, which is great design IMO), so that's less of a problem there ;-)

As some of you already know we're currently in the process of updating the
website to better portrait GNUstep to the world.  To achieve this goal, I
feel fairly strong about advertising JIGS, RIGS and the Guile bridges.  I
was able to find some info on JIGS and RIGS but I'm still not sure if they
can be used with both -base and -gui.  The JIGS docs still talk about using
-gui with 0.8.0 while the current release is 1.5.5.  As for RIGS, all I know
is that it's not "bullet-proof".  I wasn't even able to find info on GNUstep
Guile, so I'm completely in the dark (I know it introduces scripting to
GNUstep, but don't StepTalk already do this too).  As for StepTalk, there's
quite a bit of info but I still wasn't able to find a status report on it
(GNUstep website still says latest version is 0.8.1, yet the version in
Debian is 0.10.0, what gives?).

I'll need more info for other libraries later on, but that's for another
