New Start Page in trunk builds

There is new Start Page in trunk builds. This page should replace the 'old' Welcome Screen.
It is more dynamic than the Welcome Page. Notice the News and Blogs sections. These are fed from web. I cannot convince myself to disconnect from internet to see what will happen then. I like the feature that the add-on packs will have an opportunity to add something to the page. It can end with big mess but it's up to the developers of the packs.



Do you like it? I do.

Very nice! Are those images from a web page or are they Swing panels? I'd love to create a menu like that for a Swing app. I'm working on now.

Now that is more like it, this is what i have been praising about for eons, i am super happy it got done. The only thing i don't like is the scrollbars, i would prefer for an application to scroll the news. For web sites the scrollbar is not a problem.
