Yesterday I found on another notebook, with a slightly older SVN version of 
gnustep, that Vespucci works, showing me the images, so its a regression 
somewhere introduced. I'll now only need to find out which of those changes 
caused the problem.
So I make some progress here, slowly but at least some progress ;)

So Fred, could you maybe present CoreBreach on your notebook?

Yeah, RemoteDesk I cannot show, cause don' t have a Windows host where to 
connect to ;)
CD Player and Affiche, I'll mention, need to think about whether I will show 
With regard to Zipper, there will be an extra mail coming shortly.

I got some valuable feedback so far from Dirk Olmes (Zipper), Philippe Roussel 
(SimpleAgenda), Lucas Schnorr (Paje), Andreas Schik (Burn, CDPlayer). From 
others, I'm still waiting, or still need to approach them.

Yes, CVS is fixed, and builds with current gnustep releases, but doesn't seem 
to work. The CVS version only needs one little patch in a GNUMakefile to make 
it compile on OpenBSD. It links againt -lcrypto, but this doesn't exist on 
I know how to fix that, but did not had time to do so yet.

Does PictureFreame or Ladder work for you?

Oh, I'm not aware of this help viewer app at all, sounds interesting.
