just wanted to write a quick update: A while back I assembled a list of the three most critical things I could identify that needed fixing before WM 2 release. They were:
- Fix the Layout/Explorer output seaming issues
- Fix a couple important and replicable crash issues that have defied all bughunting attempts to date
- Make a final pass on the Layout View UI to improve usability, workflow, and feedback.
There’s plenty more that could be done, but that’s the problem — drawing the line. Far better to release and continue to add features than to continually push the release backwards.
In any case, I’ve scratched off #1 from the list. This has been a longtime issue — in fact, dating back to Explorer view and v1.0!Â It feels very good to get it fixed. My current workflow is to work on one of the Big 3 for at least half of each day, then any other things I want do modify/add for the other half.
Other very useful stuff has been done too (like a much needed reworking of the multiple viewport system, better Vista compatibility, etc.)
