We are reestablishing a UI team to work on improving the user experience. Note that at the moment we do not have any developers with a lot of time dedicated to working on the UI. So we will start with small, easy to implement topics, or help developers that are already working on functionality to get their designs improved and approved, and try to grow from there.
To keep it all manageable and to avoid people sinking time into discussions that do not lead to actual implementation in Blender, we will follow a strict process.
This is the list of designs currently being worked on by the UI team, and which are expected to be implement in the near term. In design tasks developers and UI designers can do focused design work and approve a final version, after which a developer can choose to implement it.
These design tasks can only be created by developers that will implement a change, and by the Core UI team members listed below. Their feasibility to be implemented and final design decisions will be made by @venomgfx and @carter2422. If design tasks created by Core UI team members turn out too big to be implemented in the next few months, they will be moved to the wiki.
Everyone is invited to participate in the discussion of existing design tasks, propose solutions and of course implement them.
This is the place where all other designs and proposals can be posted. These can be small or big topics. The UI team will themselves create proposals there and keep an eye on proposals posted on this page, and turn them into design tasks when developer time is available to implement them.
Everyone can post proposals here and edit the pages to comment on proposals. But note that discussion here is necessarily speculative until developers get involved to implement the feature.
Core UI Team
We are especially looking for more developers to join the team.
Full UI Team
Even if you are not listed above, you can consider yourself as a UI designer part of the UI team, all it takes is to get involved in existing design tasks or to create proposals on the wiki.
