Here's Akkana's update on the status of the editor (composer):
Work continues on the selection mechanism, the transaction manager, and the new gui manager. The new selection code mostly lives in layout/base/src; the old hacky selection code (which was scattered all over the place) has been turned off, and the new code will gradually be plugged in. The transaction manager lives in editor/txmgr. The gui manager appeared this week, in editor/guimgr.
We expect to be adding more spec pages on the http://www.mozilla.org/editor/ site over the next week, including the gui manager spec.

For the imglib, the png library was updated to 1.0.2.
Please note, that gamma has been temporarily disabled in mozilla/modules/libimg/src/png_png.cpp. If anyone is interested in concentrating on gamma and why the display is incorrect, come on down.

Wan-Teh Chang has this update for us on the state of NSPR:
Edwin has this update for us: "We made good progress in the past couple of weeks in defining a plan for moving the 4.5 preferences code to 5.0, and I'll be posting that plan and some additional thoughts on preferences and profiles in the componentized 5.0 world to both the mozilla newsgroups and mozilla.org this weekend. We're very much looking for your feedback on these plans, which involve more of bringing the 5.0 model in line with already existing features in 4.5 rather than doing any major architectural work in the short term. A big thank you to those of you who've responded already.
That said, both Dan Malmer and I are moving to another assignment within Netscape and so will be transitioning the ownership of the preferences model to Hubert Shaw (hshaw). Many of you know Hubie's name from other projects he's represented through mozilla, and he'll be working to make the backend XP preferences libraries what they need to be going forward."
