GUI mk2 starting to form

From my "hello word" style GUI from before, a potentially usable first revision is starting to form. Its focus is mostly going to be on learning to make custom widgets and concurrency/multi-threading issues. It currently looks something like this:
I've gotten some feedback from various people on what they'd want in a disassembler GUI as well as general UI concepts and am pondering them over. It seems like I'm going to have a number of dynamicly generated scrolling text widgets, so I'm going to continue to try to work on how to form that nicely as part of my progress. Disassembly, hex, and strings are currently of this type. I'm not sure if strings really needs to be dynamic, but I figure strings could potentially get quite large for larger programs.
