After 20 years of the VisualWorks UI framework’s existence and a failed reboot in Widgetry, we’ve gathered a bit of how we got here, what we don’t like, what we do like, and what we want to fix. This talk is a piece an overview of piece of that which we call “Skins.” It’ll discuss the high level design goals of the effort, some of the issues we have in trying to organically grow a framework in the presence of another, the various “new approaches” being used in this context, and a roadmap of where we’re at as well as need to go.
