Thanks for the earlier reply.

So, I was looking through the current features in ftinspect and have a few questions regarding the same.

* The gamma slider doesn't actually affect the glyphs in ftinspect. Is that right? 

* So there is a thread mentioning ftdump functionality in ftinspect with the patch attached but I don't think that it's been used. Any specific reasons? 

* Does ftbench specifically needs GUIfication? Since it measures the performance of common FreeType operations. 

* What about ttdebug? Should that be considered for the GUIfication? If yes, won't it limit the features for other demo programs within the given GSoC timeframe?

* I think GUI tools like ftstring, ftmulti or ftview could be combined under the same unified UI with all the options. What do you think? 

Also, I started working on my proposal and would appreciate any suggestions you and other project members might have.

No and no.  It's just a lack of time that there isn't further

The features of those programs (which partially overlap) should be
eventually integrated into `ftinspect'.
