Mr Minisini,

I think it will be better (if it does not mean to much code effort on 
your side)
to make gambas's window "resizable" to auto addapt to screen's size.
Never the less, everything that make me possible to use my preferred 
IDE on
pinephone is wellcomed. So I wait for that ssh implementation: do you 
have already
a schedule about the implementation of that feature?
