For end users

For developers

  • API enhancements
  • GUI enhancements - The GUI should be redesigned to get a more modern look. A good guideline is the new IBM Lotus Symphony that uses dynamic panels. This is better than MS Office's "ribbon", at least for documents, because it saves space on the top (normally documents are vertical).
  • Option page

    • new File Dialog
    • visualization of Meta data in Explorer
