Here is my first blog post about my progress so far for my gsoc project, a little later than it should be, but at least it's here! So, what have I been working on? Two things, basically: archiving with cross-references, and view-less layouts. I've been chatting with my mentor and things are getting revised fairly quickly, so instead of writing about implementation, I'll write about the ideas and results of what I'm working on!
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://www.haiku-os.org/blog/yourpalal/2010-06-11_progress_layout_api/
