Hello everyone; sorry once again for the massive gap between updates… I’ve been busy with other things. It seems that, in my absence, the comment spam has become a far more significant problem than it used to be. Unfortunately, I can’t install an anti-spam filter due to SourceForge’s extremely limiting hosting policy. I think perhaps this is a sign that I need my own hosting already… In any event, I’ll try to keep a better eye on the site.
Thanks to everyone who wrote in with name suggestions! I’ve read them all now, and I saw several that I liked. I’ll make a poll a little later to see what the most popular is. I noticed that there were also many that thought that it should stay as QTTabBar, so I will make that a poll option as well. To be honest, now that I’ve thought about how much work a name change would involve, that option is sounding a little bit appealing to me as well. But, I’ll decide once I see how the poll turns out.
Anyway, although I have obviously not been checking the site nearly as much as I should have, a lot of work has been done on the program. The new options dialog box is progressing nicely; here are some screenshots: Window, Tabs, Tooltips, Tweaks, General, Appearance
As you can see, it’s been… umm… let’s say “influenced”… by the options dialog for Microsoft Office. I actually went through several styles before settling on that one. I think Office’s options really hit a nice balance between aesthetics and functionality. I especially like the bold section headers, which really let you find what you’re looking for quickly.
You might notice that there are a few options in these screenshots that hint at new features that are coming…
