HomeMenu is a library written in C which provides a Big-N style Home Menu. It aims to be graphics-library-independent so it can be used regardless of your application's underlying graphics code/library. It also allows you to associate your own functions to events such as when the menu opens, closes, redraws.
It's coming along well but isn't completed yet. An up-to-date "To Do" list can be found on the SVN.
11 April 2009 -- I just tested HomeMenu with a fresh extraction of the libwiisprite tarball... it wasn't pretty. I hadn't noticed just how drastic my modifications to lws were. I'll be updating HomeMenu to work with lws out of the box in a week or so. I'll also implement some more GX related tweaking options so hand rolled graphics solutions can better control HomeMenu's behavior.
Back to coding in a week,

4 April 2009 -- I'm looking for testers. I've gotten reports of odd behavior on PAL systems, so first and foremost I'm looking for PAL testers. I also need widescreen testers (both PAL and NTSC). If you're interested please leave your contact info on the discussion page. I'll also put together a version of the menu that will allow you to take screenshots.

Installation and usage
I'd like to have a general idea of how many apps use this library (once released, or even off the svn). If you use it, could you please add
[[Category:Homebrew using HomeMenu]] to your application's wiki page? Thanks.
