Well, compiler still can't be executed (SIGSEGV on GetEnv :-() and other small things, but seems to be more stable then before ;)

Really, not some but a lot.

At least

MMPM/2 (seems to be taken for translation by one person)
Lan Server API
SOM API (lot of work done by Antony T. Curtis but for Virtual Pascal)
WPS API (see above)

this is active API. Upcoming api (seems to be presented on most systems) are SysTray/XCenter API's, WarpOverlay, Mozilla (as fast as Embeded API will be finished by 
Mozilla team)

So, wide area to make hands busy ;)
