The source and OS X binary are available at http://www.sf.net/projects/gsdock

*Looks like the OpenStep Dock but behaves somewhat like the OS X Dock (A hybrid)
        *Accepts dragged applications
*Accepts dragged documents and tiles highlight if the app accepts the document *Tiles resize as they are added. you can put as many tiles into the dock as you wish
        *Apps animate as they are launched
        *Cross compiles to Cocoa/OS X
        *Context sensitive menus (oh noo!!!!) on tiles.

Known issues:
        When compiled in GNUstep:
                *Mouse dragginng events have wrong positions, possible a WMaker 
                *Launching apps will not animate.
                *AppIcon tiles will still appear on bottom of screen.
*It actually works much better in Cocoa than in GNUstep at the present.

        When compiled in Cocoa:
*Some apps are not reported by NSworkspace as being apps. These apps will not be swallowed by the dock.
                *Dock will grow and place itself under the menu bar.
                *Dock will show itself over full screen applications/windows.

        When compiled in GNUstep or Cocoa:
                *No known method to update the AppIcon when the App changes it.
                *As tiles shrink the icons can look jagged.
                *No known method to ask other apps to hide or terminate 
                *Recycler is not yet implemented.
*Dock is stuck on right hand side of screen. Cannot be moved at the present.
                *Still has a main menu.
                *Will hide if asked, just like it was a regular app.
