What I am hoping to do is implement the archiving process before the midterm evaluation, which also means I would derive BLayout from BLayoutItem in the first half of the summer. This would leave the rest of the summer to squash bugs, finalize the ABI, add Layout to some apps etc. However, I think it is fair warning for the Haiku community that I have never had the chance to work 8 hours a day on programming, so my estimates might be off by a bit :D I am however, confident that I will finish these goals over the summer. After GSoC is done, I would like to continue working on Haiku, and have a few ideas I would like to implement, two new widgets for the Interface Kit, animation for widgets, maybe an encryption kit with keyring capabilities and work on the HaikuBook, among others.
