This week we started working on the usability and design changes for Fatpaint v2. We promised ourselves that we will only use Fatpaint for making the design of our new user interface and web pages, and so far during this process, we already identified several flaws and issues that will be fixed/improved. We are very confident that Fatpaint v2 will be a much better product.
Yesterday and the day before, I spend most of the time on the Fatpaint editor, designing mock-ups for the new user interface, and I discovered quite a few things with Fatpaint that I’m not happy with. Most irritating is the slow performance when working with many objects and the user interface. So today I went back to working with the code, to fix some of these annoying issues.
A lot is going to change in the coming 3 months. During this period, we will be releasing many new versions and possibly also introduce some bugs. I’m still the only person doing all the work, so I probably won’t be spending the amount of time with testing that I should.
I encourage our current users to help us on this process by reporting bugs or improvement suggestions.
