These are all either missing or not-yet-implemented features/behaviors. We
want to keep track of all such things in the bug tracking system. So, if you
would, please enter them as "Feature Request" or a bug (as you see fit) at: (we might
recharacterize them later on).

Everything thing in FreeRIDE, including the main interface, is a plugin
(except for FreeBase -- the code that manages the plugins).

Implementing a new GUI-rendering plugin, while not a small task, should not
be particularly difficult (with one caveat). I am planning to do a wxRuby
(ruby binding to wxWindows) plugin if/when wxRuby is available and ready. he
main problem is the code editing component of FreeRIDE is Scintilla, and the
gui toolkit needs to include a version of Scintilla that renders itself to
that gui toolkit (FXRuby includes FXScintilla; wxWindows also includes a
version of Scintilla). So there would need to be a port of Scintilla that
renders itself to gtk.
