Hi Fred,

This is great to hear - I started two projects this summer which will really benefit from an NSGradient implementation.

The first is a little piece of code [1] which draws speech bubbles identical to the ones in this mockup:
I use NSGradient for filling in the bubbles, so currently it only looks correct on OS X.

I also began working on drawing/painting framework tentatively called EtoilePaint [2], built on top of Quentin's EtoileUI, It's very unfinished, but I plan to resume working on it in January and create a nice hybrid bitmap/vector editor for Etoile. The NSColor pattern drawing feature will be useful here as well.

If I have time in the next few weeks I'll look at the FIXME's in NSGradient. Thanks for starting this!

I Just added the gui part of an implementation of NSGradient. This is
based on code by Nikolaus Schaller and still requires some clean up. If
somebody helps me to remove all the remaining FIXMEs in the code I am
willing to define two backend methods for this class and implement them
at least for the cairo backend.

If on the other hand this results in as little feedback as the pattern
colour implementation, I will just forget about that class.
