XaoS is quite easily extensible. You might want to read a bit about its internals in the file **doc/xaosdev.info**. XaoS is also portable, so if it doesn't work on your favorite platform (or there is just an old version available), you could quite easily port it. XaoS is quite easily extensible.

-==== Enhance the NaCl version of XaoS to have a better modern user interface ====+==== Add full support for the GTK+ GUI ====
-See http://nativeclient.googlecode.com/svn-history/r65/trunk/nacl/googleclient/native_client/tests/xaos/xaos.html for more details.+XaoS already supports [[http://www.gtk.org/|GTK+]] but it is not the default GUI since not all features work properly with it, e.g. the fonts of the demo tutorials look strange (since they are planned to be typewriter type). 
 + 
 +Also the Windows version (which has not been updated for several years) lacks GTK+ support. 
 + 
 +The task would be to change the default user interface to GTK+. 
 + 
 +==== Add more features to XaoS.js ==== 
 + 
 +J.B. Langston's [[http://jblang.github.io/XaoSjs/|demonstrational JavaScript port]] worths adding a menu system and other features to be a full port of XaoS for all modern browsers.

 +==== Enhance the NaCl version of XaoS to have a better modern user interface ====
