EDIT: The error below was my fault, i fucked up the install. On a second try I got it right.
They’ve fixed quite a few bugs, which is good, though the interface problem remains un-addressed. So it is progress, if not in the interface.
Six-Apart have released a new beta (beta 2) – which doesn’t work at all, won’t even load (click the image below to see a beautiful error message):
They did admit there are some issues with the completely bolloxed up interface; they ‘solved’ this by combing two obscure pulldowns into one obscure pulldown, while not seeming to see the core problem of hiding all the frequent tasks behind pulldowns and page loads.
[sarcasm] and there was much rejoicing[/sarcasm]
They really don’t get it; but at least i finally got noticed and responded to by the people at Six Apart. They’re not stupid, so the question is only, will they get what they did wrong or will they keep trying to band-aid a death-wound. It’s about a coin-flip on that one right now.
