Feel free to look at the latest at wiki.laptop.org/go/Designs.

Specifically, check out Feel free to look at the latest at
wiki.laptop.org/go/Designs/Frame for details on the changes which will
imbue the Frame with much more utility.  We still need to address the
usability concerns, naturally, and as Marco mentioned we have a few
things to try in that regard, but it's just as important to me that
the Frame actually serve vital roles on the system in the first place!
