The morphic part of Magritte is more a prove of concept than code
useable in production. I only implemented the parts that are needed
to run Pier within the Squeak image. Pier itself only uses a subset
of Magritte, therefor the package Magritte-Morph has never been taken
as far as Magritte-Seaside that is used in several industrial
application. Most of the productive applications I am involved with
are Web applications. Quite a lot of those applications use Magritte-
Seaside, therefor I concentrated most of my energy on this package.
Right now, since time and commercial interest for Magritte-Morphic is
missing, I am unable to continue with this sub-project on my own. I
am still keeping the package up-to-date to make it work together with
Pier, but I in the short I will not implement new features. However,
I would be glad and willing to help, if anybody takes over the
development of Magritte-Morph, or even starts with something new like
Magritte-Tweak or Magritte-Sophie.
