For the 2.72 final release, please consider updating the factory settings (startup.blend) to properly arrange newly added Freestyle panels in the properties window as requested by Thomas in a review comment of patch D632 for Freestyle in Cycles. Specifically,
- In the Render tab, the "Freestyle" tab should be beneath the "Post Processing" tab.
- In the Render Layers tab, the three Freestyle panels (showing up when Freestyle is turned on) should be beneath the "Layer" and "Passes" tabs.
- In the Material tab, "Freestyle Line" should be put beneath all other ones.
I would appreciate it if more and less the same ordering of tabs is maintained for all rendering engines, since the tab arrangement may vary in each of them.
