fullscreen applet viewer / launcher

Here's a mini launcher app i've been hacking on for the last few nights to run applets built with Processing in standalone/fullscreen mode (no dual monitor support so far though). Credit where credit is due: it's partly based on the PDE's internal presentation mode code and micheal's BAppletFS. although it ended up a bit more userfriendly/flexible, i hope!

still, consider it more or less as a starting point only...

using ProGuard to shrink applet filesizes

just started a new thread on the forum with some interesting points about using the ProGuard byte code obfuscator to "dramatically" (excuse the marketing speech) cut down filesizes of applets to under 45% of the original .jar size.

the obfuscation rocks thread.
