I am sure Christian will be able to answer better, but the root of the
problem is that the color space is 3d - that's why you need the
additional (here vertical) scroll, or a way to mark one of the
components fixed (the radio button).

That is a great point - I have just created a 3.5 release notes page, to
list the features there that are 3.5-only, and added the description of
the improved color picker there (Christian, please feel free to improve


Everybody who implements a new feature in master, please add it to this
page! :-)

Thank you,
