Some updates:

  • The tabbed interface for the themes screen that we discussed previously is going to make it into 3.0 for Theme screens only. Gaston’s wireframes were implemented by matveb, gaston & drearmeda in the patch at Depending on how it works out, we may extend the UI to other areas of the admin, but that won’t be determined until planning for 3.1 starts.

The Hulu-style pagination would be much more user-friendly and would also take up less room, which would be good for small monitors/laptops that don’t have super high resolution b/c of all the dropdown menus on the same line.
