Hi there, I've been loooking at retaking the efforts in the SWIG bindings for eds, and looking at the same time at the new technologies in the GNOME stack. I think the current direction of the bindings are pretty much a dead end because there are 2 technologies that can be used to gain the same effect with less effort. The first on would be gobject introspection, which, while not mature enough, can probably be used to get a similar bindings to the current ones. Pros of this approach would be a lesser burden of maintenance for the binding writer and a nearly always up to date binding. The second approach would be writing a DBUS interface to the e-d-s so that all languages DBUS capable would be able to use the e-d-s. I think this would be the best approach as you can have some sort of API stability with other programs without carving e-d-s stone, have language independence and it does seem to be where the GNOME desktop is heading to (and the OpenMoko guys seem to be already doing this).
What do you guys think?  http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/D-Bus _______________________________________________ Evolution-hackers mailing list Evolutionfirstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/evolution-hackers
