Any updates on this? It sounds really cool and seems like it has been something planned for a long time...

I also like how most of the process for developing the feature has been documented it has given me a little more insight on how apps are integrated into the dce process...

I think i have most of the dce / qt stuff melded together minus one particular include. Hopefully will have something worthwhile soon. In the meantime I've been trying to document the process in a more cohesive manner http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/C%2B%2B_Project.

Fantastic, bro. :)

You're already to a point where you can hook it up in the General Info Plugin. (Literally grep for Mozilla.sh (if I remember right, it's an app server call), and there is a bit of code that grabs the window ID from the entry in the database.)

Then Orbiter can swallow the window (You'll see a call to CMD_Select_Active_Window that brings the web window to front.) Perhaps the window can minimize when done...

golgoj4,

great that you've come so far. Please keep in mind, that we will not any new features now. You can continue with what you do, but do NOT touch any of the existing code for integration purposes.

We will not add any new feature until LinuxMCE 810 is released, or Ubuntu 1110 has been released, whatever comes first.
