Yes, there's plenty of room for two lines.

I agree that "for" is needed with "under construction," but splitting "under construction for" into two lines won't look right any way you try it.

I don't like that. Until something is proposed, it isn't a proposal. How about "developing for" or "creating for?" The present participle implies ongoing work.

I like Patrick's "proposed for" better. The past participle implies that the library has been proposed and is awaiting review.

I think "powered by" works better because that phrasing fits the word "boost" better.

I like the red text for the not-yet-accepted-library logos. I like the blue for "powered by."
