More Thoth 2.0 screen capturesMay 14, 2006
Brian sent me a few more screen captures today
The Filters List screenshot shows how the filters list has been simplifier and improved. With the change in how mfilter groups are named and applied, the live filtering has gotten simpler and less confusing. And It made sense to have two lists in the window: one with the filter groups, now likely to be many fewer in number than in Thoth 1.x, and the filters matching the items selected in the groups list. It’s now easy to rename groups, copy filters to a differnt group, or move the, etc.
There are two more Preferences dialog screenshots. The one for Personalities shows how this information is now set. The quotation in the signature is, of course, from Wordsworth’s famous sonnet about the King’s College Cambridge Chapel. The News Servers screenshot shows the first pane used to configure a news server. Note that the server name and authentication settings are now all in the first pane, so that when people first configure a news server the authentication setting can’t be forgotten or overlooked.
