I always dream with this...
Of course, the GUI will drop down my thread in forums but, like Sasha said, newbies (and not only them) will love it.

At least 3 reasons to keep and maintain your thread :
1) depending on my spare time, i don't think it will be finished before a month or two.
2) your thread will always be a valuable reference.
3) if avast4.ini get changed, your thread will be updated faster than the program.

I can't think in more  8)

So maybe i don't have too bad ideas  ;D

I have not started coding yet. I'm in early stage design :
- gathering information on avast4.ini (structure, keys, values...)
- features needed (as discussed in a previous post)
- GUI prototyping
- class diagram

I think the coding will be done in Java for these main reasons :
- can be used on windows and linux (and even Mac)
- rich API (GUI, XML parsing, INI files)
- code easy to maintain and debug
- OOP
- choice of native look & feel or Java look & feel

Good. The Java Runtime Enviroment is an integrated part of Mac OS. Too bad avast is not in java

Thank you all !!

I will release a beta as soon as possible so you can evaluate the GUI and give me feedback.

I will post news on the off-topic forum. Is there someone who accepts to host the software on his web site ?

Hehe, I would be glad to do that for you my friend... but... but, the problem is, my free web space I've got from my ex.internet provider in Croatia is 5 Mb only... I'm already almost out of space (I have few previews of my web sites I'm designing for some clients, plus lot of my graphic files), so no matter how much I want to do that, I am unable to help you my friend...  :'(

I believe you'll find somebody very soon...  :) Piece of software like that must have it's "home".

Btw, did you see this thread I started some time ago ?
http://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=9;action=display;threadid=3368;start=msg24263#msg24263

Give me your opinion... is it possible to make something like that ? It should behave like ObjectDock - see link:

Thanks in advance !

Sasha

Ok, thank you my friend. Anyway i'm sure we can find a host until then...

For your launch bar, promise i will give a close look as soon as possible. But i only manage a project at a time so i will ask you some more patience...   ::)

To answer your question, yes everything is possible, it is just a matter of time and work !!  ;D

OK, thanks for respond... I posted that question many months ago, no one was interested, so I almost gave up on that idea...

Anyway, if there is not enough time, it's OK... world will spin anyway, hehe  ;D
