I've looked at the pages only and I must admit I had a hard time to figure out
what is the difference between the 2 lists in the overview page.

Also, I have a question: how does this look like in ncurses (80x24)?

Hi everyone,

as some of you may know it is now almost a year since we first try to
think (again) about a redesign of the printer module.

And now we are ready to present you a first release candidate :-)
You find it on:

I am very happy with it as it cleans up the kerfuffle the current module
shows at present:
* the depth of workflow was reduced from 9 levels to 3
* overall number of screens was reduced from over 30 to 10
* technical short wording was replaced by explanatory wording, which is
easy to comprehend
* dialog layout which also confused expert users was replaced by simple,
meaningful layout (or to put it into more poetic words: the user was
released from his dungeon :-))

At this point I would like to thank:
* Michal Zugec for putting the UI redesign on the agenda (and especially
in autumn when everyone already forgot about it)
* Johannes Meixner for his endless time, patience and comments
* everyone on the lists for their comments and participation

I am looking forward to your comments!

Have a nice weekend,
