:) Hello *,
:) Any thoughts on making the online docs frameless?

Lots of thoughts. I don't particularly like the current situation. The
problem is that we are constrained by what doxygen can generate. The tree
view (frames) is not optimal, but doxygen doesn't generate a proper index
for html. It should. But there's not much I can do about right now (beyond
spending a lot of time I don't have hacking on doxygen).

There's many other things that drive me nuts about doxygen, but it does a
decent job for the most part once you learn how to bend to it's

Probably, but not in the short term due to time constraints. Feel free to
work on it.
