That is actually a very interesting question, will be great to see what's happening. 

I myself am working on further changes to our mobile app. The app is used by delivery drivers for services that use our Meals on Wheels system. 

1) Revamping the client main screen, using controls from tmContol2 by Scott Rossi. 
2) Checking for data signal before sending a job to webserver, if no signal, then store job and keep checking for signal
3) Allow 2 units to access and update same dataset , where each auto update each other. (normally, only 1 unit would access its own dataset)

That's keeping me busy.  Incidentally, this app would not have come about with Livecode!

Hi all,

I'm really interested to hear about what you're working on at the moment.  The community always seems to have a huge, exciting and varied range of projects going on, and it's great to hear how people are using LiveCode for work, for hobbies, for learning or for play!

I'll start:

1. I've been working on the HTML5 engine.  For the last couple of weeks, I've been focussed on getting LiveCode Builder (i.e. widgets) working in HTML5, and it's been an often rather frustrating business, because it's really hard to debug asm.js code running in the browser!  Every time I think I've nailed the last bug, another one jumps out of the woodwork.  
However, I'm feeling hopeful that by the time of the Global Jam next week, everyone will be able to use widgets in the browser.  And after that, commercial HTML5...

2. I've added a new test framework to the repository that lets us write script-only test stacks and run them automatically for every proposed change.  Now I need to get contributors to write tests!

What have you been working on?
