Comments to the new Todos:

  1. While discussing, the question came up, wether the connecting lines in a Treelistbox are confusing or helpful to get an overview of the structure. Since we weren't able to come to a solution for all usecases, Christian will check this.

  2. In view of the importance of Accessibility and the work which is done in the Applications, Frank worried about a lag in the progress on this item in the UI-team. So Oliver will look for tasks, which could be done in this stage of the development.

  3. Since every Application implements its "own" (in the meaning of most functionality) Navigator, the idea came up, to make the Navigator generic. Peter is collecting informations of the requirements from the Applications.

  4. Analogical as for Navigator, but the differences between the Applications are not so large.

2. Misc

Everybody in the UI team is busy with issues for the upcoming product release or API documentation.

First thoughts on generic Navigator / Stylist (move toward UNO): Huge effort for implementation, Benefit (less code, faster, more functionality) not clear at all. In addition, the demands from the applications are particular very different for the Navigator.
