First of all thank you all for the input.
Let me start with a few pics showing the configurable layout, since some seem to be unaware of that:

The big drawback here being ofc that custom layouts cannot be saved atm, which is a toolkit limitation. There is GSOC project that will remedy this in the foreseeable future.

I haven't forgotten that, but have been putting investigating that off since.

That's cause SpringSettings was a standalone app before it got emrged into SL. Integrating it further into the Options tab is possible tho. I'll make the language choice available in general options too.

Sorry, most of what you said there are design choices we're not likely to change.

It does and always has.

Sorry, don't see the point of switching if you're not online.

I'll see if aking the text entry box user sizable is a viable option.

I get scrollbars just fine, did you check with current version? As for broken maps, we opted to simply dismiss them as teh other way round created even more confusion with users.
The icons for receiving a message seem to be the exact opposite of what I expect. An offline user is a yellow smiley face, someone who just sent me a message is blacked out. I can't figure out what the different colors on the chat tabs mean either
The icons are overlayed with the color you set in options.

Which ones, how? Have you been aware of the configurable layout?
YokoZar wrote:Autojoining a channel should be as simple as right clicking the channel and selecting a "autojoin this channel at connect" checkbox.
You should actually try right clicking.

When I did that change, I handed the build to a few people who were utterly confused about the change w/o notice. Either way it's a one time thing.

lurker wrote:Bug in the text control that they can't get the scroll position, and apparently nobody can fix it. At least I think they tried to fix it.
exactly. We tried a couple of different ways and best thing we came up with is the right click option to temp disable text appending.
