"A lot of work remains though. Here are some of the major items:
D-Bus Viewer. KDE had a neat tool for DCOP that let you browse all the running apps and introspect their methods. This is really useful, and a D-Bus equivalent is needed. There was a start on one in CVS at one point, but it hadn't gotten very far.
well, we can scratch this one of the TODO list. in qt4 one will find in the demos/ directory a project called "dbus-viewer". hey, it's even the same name the havoc used as his bullet point! =)
it's functional, as you can see in the above screenshot, though it could use some love such as having a menubar with some basic functions and some of the nicer ones from kdcop such as the drag'n'drop support for shell, python and c++ code snippets. i'm sure harald from trolltech, who as i recall wrote this app, could give us all sorts of suggestions from what he was thinking when writing it.
i've been speaking with trolltech people about installing it when one does a `make install` (prelim reaction is: yes, we will do that) and opening it up to greater community involvement.
p.s. hi havoc! =)
update: morty pointed out kdbus to me. it's a kde3 app and separates out the buses into two tabs: system and session. that's a nice idea. it has a menu bar ... but also a somewhat gratuitous toolbar. obviously needs a kde4 port ;)
