Changed one of the headings in the table of contents "How to an application using XULRunner" to "How to do a Hello World application using XULRunner". Also finished writing a tutorial on the "Hello World" application.

I have finished entering the XUL Runner install instructions for a Win32 operating system. Currently I am looking into the XUL Runner 64bit installation instructions. I am looking for any similarities and differences.

I've looked through bsmedberg emails on XULRunner (XR) for this week. For a starting point, I wanted to start with the simplist task first, creating a "Hello World" application for XR. I've searched through quite a few websites, mainly from the MDC. For the first half of the day, I couldn't find any websites which actually guided me step by step on how to create a simple XR application. The closes website I found was from Ryan's Blog. The blog had a tutorial on how to set up a XR application but it missed one important aspect, how to run the application.

After this, I realized I've been putting too much time finding tutorial on how to create an intutive XR application. Perhaps no one has posted any on the web yet. So I tried to reverse engineer an existing XR application, XULMine. Unfortunately I wasn't very successful. The code for this application seem too complex for myself to understand.

As a result, I started my search all over again. Fortunately, I missed a link which was on MDC XULRunner, Getting started with XR. Thankfully, I was able to create my first "Hello World" application on XR. I wasn't able to finish writing documentation on this but hopefully by the end of the week, I'll be able to manage some time and have this completed.

We sent an email to bsmerdberg about what we've currently have worked on so far for this project. Dave Humphrey helped us send another email dria, bsmedberg, and sheppy about our project. We're currently waiting for their response. Hopefully they will tell us what they want in the XULRunner guide.

Colin and I have started testing the stable version of XULRunner which is I'm mainly responsible for the Linux side of XULRunnre while as Colin is responsible for Windows. We've installed XULRunner and tried installing a few XULRunner application. We also put the information in the XULRunner Guide outline.
