Mathusalem integrated into gnome and gnome applications

Registered by Jon on 2006-10-19

During the google summer of code project, Mathusalem was developed. It uses D-Bus and allows applications to use a common framework to display the progress of various processes on the system, such as the downloading of a file or the burning of a CD.

I think this would be a great addition to the desktop as it will give a common UI to all tasks and make applications very learnable. Other uses could be for ripping CDs, upoading files vie ftp etc, integration into apt and many more.

Here is the link to the developers blog
