Camaelon is still waiting for somebody to adopt the code to the GNUstep
change from last summer. To get this working is mostly a matter of
industry. You need to replace a lot of calls that leave out the flipped
value with ones that pass it on and in a few cases write a new
intermediate method that passes on the flipped stated.
If I had to do it (which I wont do!), I would start by grepping for
"flipped: NO" and replace all the method calls to that methods with
proper ones. That should solve 90% of the issues.
The next step would be to change the NSCell subclasses to the new
GNUstep draw method mechanism, which is actually rather close to what
Camaelon is already using.
