As I said earlier I think illume is too big a step right now as it 
involves changing a lot in gadgets and fileman etc. There is too much 
code and tweaking we'd have to go through for it to be done overnight.

If we use the paroli infrastructure for now we can build all that is 
needed without too many unknowns.

Hehe, well a few applications are still missing, but they certainly are 
much easier to develop now.

I did the webpage part and uploaded the api ( 
http://www.paroli-project.org/api ) the tutorial comes in the next one 
or two days.

We are working on those. We really need them I agree. For now only the 
git is there.

If you get a current git and run it from within the source directory ( 
see: http://www.paroli-project.org/running-paroli/ ) it should start 
automatically. The source can then be found in the paroli-applications 
folder subdirectory paroli-launcher.

seems to work smoothly a couple of deprecation warnings and a small 
thing in logging etc but that is fixed.

It is indeed.

scrolling issue?
