What’s BeOS’s widget toolkit, and is an update or modern rewrite of it a part of Glass Elevator?

There is code in the Haiku repo for layout-based interfaces, similar to Java’s in construction. It’s unlikely to get into the first release (according to a recent post on the mailinglist by Axel), but it’s there to play with now.

Not in R1, but certainly after that one. Our layout engine probably won't be part of the public API in R1.
