0.3 - OrbTk next
0.3 (codename "Next") represents a complete restart of OrbTk. It will build on modern patterns like Entity Component System and Builder Pattern. From the API side OrbTk Next is similar to React and Flutter.
OrbTk is a project of Redox OS and is supported by two developers and two designers of Ergosign during their Focus Time and free time. The Focus Time group is a day-per-month employee activity of Ergosign, that time spent could be used on personal education and personal projects to support Open Source.
In parallel to the development of 0.3, a new visual design with a default theme and style guide will be created.
The general goal of OrbTk is the creation of a scalable and cross-platform (G)UI framework for the Rust programming language, in similar regards to Qt for the C++ programming language. It should be possible to create from lightweight tools to big data applications with OrbTk.

Goal OrbTk next (0.3)
The main goal of 0.3 is to create the foundation of OrbTk next and its further versions. With the release of 0.3 the main components and the main API of OrbTk should be stable. A further goal of this release is the port of all OrbUtils the default set of Redox's graphical applications.
With the release of 0.3 all 7 GUIs examples should be implemented.
An other goal of 0.3 is that all public modules, structs, enums, functions and fields are documented.
