Usability Details

Usability and user experience was also a key driver behind the developments done in this release cycle for 4diac IDE. We focused on improving many small details that where anoying and disturbed the development workflow. Espeically the a harmonisation of the property sheets regarding look and feel was done. 

With the improvement of thy dynamic type loading done in our Google Summer of Code project the biggest show stopper in Eclipse 4diac  the development cycle was further reduced.
