NeXT Applications and Interface Builder

Michael Tsai, commenting on a DrunkenBlog post pointing out how little Interface Builder has changed since NeXTSTEP a decade ago:

Interface Builder was ahead of its time. And, yes, the ability to set outlets and actions is still cool. But aside from adding support for layout guides and bindings, it doesn’t seem to have changed much. It could even learn a few things from PowerPlant Constructor, circa 1996. The last time I complained about Apple’s developer tools, it wasn’t long before they announced Xcode. So hopefully there’s already a project underway.
