6 Frameworks Apple should include in their OS

To make developers’ lives easier, Apple *really* should make the following 6 frameworks bundled with their OS, it will make application distribution much better.

* [Growl](http://growl.info)
* [Sparkle](http://sparkle.andymatuschak.org)
* [Perian](http://perian.org)
* Universal Charset Detector
* A decent HUD framework (maybe based on [HMBlkAppKit](http://shiira.jp/hmblkappkit/en.html))
* A decent Tab control (maybe based on [PSMTabBarControl](http://www.positivespinmedia.com/dev/PSMTabBarControl.html))

  1. 我建议还要加:

    regular expression, md5/sha1, base64

    还建议把 chinese calendar 尽快做好。 japanese calendar 都做好了。

    感觉 growl 没必要,说是免去了点击“确定”的麻烦,但是许多现在软件用的那些提示,也很烦人,完全没有必要。

  2. @nanmus: regular expression 支持在 POSIX 中已有,系统自带。md5/sha1, base64 支持在 openssl 中已有,系统自带。
