Greetings!

I uploaded the Windows binaries for a prerelease of Glassomium 0.3. http://www.glassomium.org/glassomium-0.3-pre-1121.zip

Make sure to read the wiki page for usage, some things in the user interaction have changed: http://glassomium.org/wiki/how_to_use_glassomium

Changelog for 0.3 (so far):
More compatible touch events. Now DOM elements receive the events before the document object.
Added Box2d physics drag. Now windows can have momentum when released from a drag.
Improved dragging. Now adding/removing a touch while dragging a window will not cause a sudden shift.
New demo applications including Glow Hockey, Checkers, Chess, Feed The Panda (Cut the rope clone) and Movie Player.
Fixed heap overflow bug while maximizing a window.
Fixed race conditions that were causing display issues during animations.
Removed system menus, now applications can be closed by a pinch gesture.
Removed GLA.SetMenuButtons API.
Added aspect ratio option in the configuration for applications.
Faster input and rendering for fullscreen applications!
Improved the transitions to fullscreen (now fades instead of scaling).
Fixed the default theme’s navigator size.
Improved deallocation of windows that were causing crashes due to racing conditions.

I’m going to work on speed improvement before I release the final version of 0.3.

Enjoy! Feedback is greatly appreciated.

Hi pierotofy!

Glassomium looks fantastic! Now if only I hadn’t accidentally broke my table… :S
Are you hooking the actual applications’ windows, forcing them to redraw into your application or is your application hooking the actual Desktop Windows Manager on Windows?

The windows are actually web tabs rendered in memory and then mapped to a 2d texture in real time; every application is made with web technologies (HTML, CSS, Javascript, Flash..).
