The second release candidate of Core 4.3 is ready for public testing:

The major theme for Core v4.3 is self contained mountable/unmountable applicaton extensions.

Change log RC1:
* New scm-load for new extension type supports icon removals and menu updates from all supported window managers.

* New scmbrowser an FLTK GUI to manage your scm extensions.
* New scm-fetch.sh and scm-search new internally used support programs for scms.

Note: All seven supported window managers have been updated to support scm type extensions.
I have recently posted them to the regular tcz repository.

You will need to update your WM as well as Xlibs, Xprogs, and wbar which are in the release candidate area.

After gazing at the change in '/usr/bin/setupdesktop' for a bit I've come to the conclusion that merely adding a comment line was probably not the aim. In particular the fact that the comment is (apart for the leading '# ') identical to the following line, makes me wonder if this is rather an attempt to disable said line gone wrong. And that the line was just not removed as it was probably intended.

bmarkus:
What is about .scm dependency handling? For example l3afpad.scm depends on gtk3.scm and Xorg-7.6-libs.tcz but they are not installed ScmBowser so you have to find what is missing and install manually. OK, if something is self contained it means no dependencies, however...

bmarkus:
An .scm doesn't get mounted at next boot, you have to add it manually to the boot list. It would be logical to add automatically. If it is downloaded, user want to use it in most cases.
