So... what started as a suggestion in this post (http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=19572
), and what started with a_c's motivating speech on the project, I have come to the conclusion that this should be done. A complete overhaul of the UI, because I think it's dated, and needs some love.
So I cloned in the current build, made some changes to Core/GuiDisplayGen.m, built it...
And boom. I got rid of the original menu display... although it is reacting and working properly, the UI is simply not shown, as evidenced in this screenshot:
Stay iTuned for updates.
