***NOTE: I am keeping a development blog that documents my day to day Netstep progress!
NetStep is a rewrite of the popular windows shell Litestep using the .NET architecture. Benefits of using .NET include cleaner interfaces with plug-ins and vastly superior scripting abilities.
Development is just getting underway. If you'd like to help, please try to get involved! Contact info is below.
What can the .NET architecture offer Netstep that can't be done (easily) in Litestep?
No more messing around with crazy scripting languages (mzScript). Netstep will allow you to write scripts in C#, VB.NET or J#. You will be able to use all of the advanced abilities of these managed languages.
No more crazy !bang hacks. You'll use events and function calls to make your modules dance.
