Back in January I had posted about a neat demo created by a group from the University of Auckland (New Zealand) – along with a brief note about another project by the same people, called “Stack & Tile.” Then I finally got around to watching the video demo and my jaw literally dropped – it’s even more impressive than the previous demo.

In a nutshell, the video shows the Haiku GUI with the added ability to group windows together, either by their title tabs or by their vertical borders. Windows in a group operate in much the same was as grouped objects in Adobe Illustrator (or linked layers in Photoshop) – moving or resizing a one window in group will do the same to all windows in the group.

According to a post on the Haiku mailing list, Stack & Tile can already be tested by downloading and applying two diff patches.
