I’m still focusing squarely on finishing a fully functional first iteration of the new Home UI, and it is coming along nicely. Here’s a brief glimpse of how things are looking currently (click for an animated gif):
Basic tasks like selecting a game or a saved game are working, and I have a list of the multiplayer games up as well. Main focus is now on the Packages tab, where I’ve revamped the list’s appearance. The next step is to implement some additional features for managing packages, like sorting, filtering and searching. After that the only thing that’s needed is a little of bit of performance tuning in the widgets framework to iron out the worst bottlenecks — this is the most complicated UI so far running on the new widgets and it is revealing some previously unseen issues.
