    2424Extend and improve the existing [wiki:MacPortsGUI basic GUI] which has been implemented as part of GSoC 2008/2009. Pallet is at the moment functional to install/uninstall ports, but for example it cannot handle variants yet. Also, it is slow if you have many ports installed.

    26 Some feature proposals:
     26Features to be implemented:
    2727 * Variant selection
    28  * Interactive dependency tree/graph
     28 * List Library, Compile, and Runtime Dependencies
     29 * Growl notifications
     30 * Queueing of operations
     31 * Fix the framework to work with the latest MacPorts version
    2932
    30 The GUI is driven by the MacPorts Framework, which acts as an wrapper of the MacPorts Tcl API to Objective-C. To enhance the GUI you will probably have to implement the respective features in the framework first.

    32 It would be your task to identify possible improvements for the GUI. This can either be new features or (speed) improvements to existing ones.
     34The GUI is driven by the MacPorts Framework, which acts as a wrapper of the MacPorts Tcl API to Objective-C. To enhance the GUI we are going to implement the respective features in the framework first.
