I wonder if it’ll make music too?
But, almost seriously, keys can all become modifiers so holding down Skey and using RMB will be enough, for example.
BTW even mouse buttons can become modifiers. That’s mad !
Now, I wonder if we will be able to use more than one button at a time.
Ton talked about investigating the possibility of using multi-pointing devices, even 2 mouses at the same time.
Another goodie: vertical headers, multi-headers, headers one doesn’t have to scroll…
Tools generating their own mini-panels for their settings, just the time they are needed.
About the compatibility, this is clear enough by itself:
<ton> stiv: i am 100% sure we can be backwards compatible with this
<ton> but not forward compatible
<ton> so once you use new .blend files, it will throw warning box
<LetterRip> backwards compatible - can use old blends in new blender
<LetterRip> forward compatible - can use new blends in old blender?
<ton> i do keep in some forward compatible features though
<ton> LetterRip: yes
