Hi Kendy, Mirek,
great idea and a great list of things you've done!
> The commits that introduced that are the following:
> Lighter border window (no 3d effect):
> Zoom slider:
> Layout icons:
All nice and low-key, like a statusbar should be. Thnaks, you two.
> Kill INSRT/OVER (and introduce 'Overwrite' only when overwriting):
Here, I would like to propose two things:
* make Insert mode harder to trigger, for instance, by having to use
Shift+Ins (instead of just Ins)
* remove the inidactor wholesale
> There are few more things still to be done, the most important ones that
> we talked are:
> - more helpful STD/BLK/... etc. selection statusbar indicator
Do we really need indicators for the selection modes at all? They are
sufficiently hard to trigger and a sufficiently minor use case to
ignore them in the main window, I think.
> - improved Windows 7 look (nicer menus + toolbars there, make use of the
> drawing into the non-client area)
I took a look at it... nice, but currently also unusable, because the
text can't be read.
