[Qgis-developer] The new installer
lists at borysjurgiel.pl
Mon Apr 29 15:50:44 PDT 2013
Is the GUI & API freeze still planned for tomorrow or postponed? I won't finish
the manager tomorrow. I need a few days more (one week is safe), but
unfortunately I have to leave from Wednesday until next Tuesday, so I could
finish it for May 15 (I'll try faster of course)...
1. Maximal: If the freeze is postponed, tomorrow I'm trying to do as much as
possible and in the evening I write a report and publish the unfinished branch.
2. Minimal: I only make necessary updates to the old Installer (just a few
fast fixes) and completely postone the new one to 2.1.
3. Intermediate: I don't invest time into the full option, instead I try to
only embed the old installer into the new manager window. They will exist on
separate tabs without functional and visual merge. Hopefully it should be
feasible to implement tomorrow (still not so trivial thought).
The advantage of the third option is althought it's not the final merge, QGIS
2.0 would have only one window for installing and managing plugins. The
confusing separate menu entry would be gone. But of course still we would have
one tab for enabling/disabling, and separate one for installing/upgrading,
what is messy. I believe we should have one tab for all activities on
installed plugins (enabling/disabling, upgrading, uninstalling) and a second
for installing new stuff. Of course it requires much deeper integration.
What do you think about the options?

metadata browser will be better formatted and more rich of course)
