Video Preview for the Community Welcome Page

As promised, with the launch of the Borland Developer Studio 2006 I am going to launch a second Welcome Page, as Community Release. Sadly, as the time of the Quality Assurance Team was very limited for the Welcome Page. That is why we are preparing a Welcome Page as Community Release.

It will take a little longer until you can actually download it, however, here I want to present the current features to you. This way you may actually have some more ideas on what you would like to see.

The video shows you the following areas:
  • Project view with detailed information about each recently opened project / project group
  • Newsfeed selection
  • Newsfeed summary view of all cached feeds
  • Integration of the BDN BabelCode service, which translates C# source code to Delphi.NET source code

Get a first look with this Camtasia Flash Video.

Very nice.

I would like 2 things.

A favourites list of projects. ie ones that never disappear. These would be something I could add to myself.

And a way to clear all or remove items from the project detail view.

I really like your first thought. Rest asured that I will not release it before that is added :-)

For the second one, JED already asked me to do that, so I guess I have to think of a way to do just that :-D

Thanks. I'm not sure I can wait :)

Is there any reason you can't release it now ? It looks pretty complete from the video

Any reason? Well, a few actually. Except those parts I've shown so far, nothing else works at this point. So I guess, yes, a little while longer you'll have to wait. But drop me an email at dwischnewski {at} gmail [dot] com, so you can preview it rather soon and maybe find a bug or two

A few more screen shots, this time your favorites are included. A little more polishing and the first testing version will be available.

Rockstar! I was just complaining on the newsgroups how the current welcome page is a bit... well... ghetto. I love what I'm seeing on the new welcome page though, very professional and clean looking. Can't wait to kick the tires on it.
