Chiming in a bit late here...
Count me as +1 in the "swell." ;-) I *heart* MAUI as well. But I
also wanted to ask the crowd here what they think about the idea of
utilizing/accepting influence from some of the very-accessible
graphics platforms out there. There's SwingOSC, Processing,
OpenFrameworks, the ixi-software.net people have Mirra... all of
which are cross-platform.
I think that an OSC-based communication for GUI elements would be
great. OSC, as pervasive as it is, is in my opinion an under-utilized
protocol. MAUI is awesome and convenient, because it's still in the
miniAudicle environment, I still usually just use it for debugging. I
think that I would rather see a set of GUI-specific OSC objects that
can be manipulated with whatever visual front-end you want to use.
For anything more complex than the normal slider, knob, led, metaphor,
I find myself rolling my own anyway.
If the GUI API could be decoupled from the environment, OSC-based, and
graphics-platform agnostic (and miniAudicle could easily have it's own
in-environment 2D implementation), then I think we'd really be onto
