I've been wondering about the redesign that is stated in commit log 966d42293a5613a3ce2b55e5e516533680ff2738:

    macosx: merge the nib fle containing Eric Dudiak's interface rework


Is the goal of the redesign documented anywhere, for example on the wiki? I'm new to the project and I'm wondering if I'm going to need to go dig through the archives to figure out what changed and more importantly why? I've been using 1.0.3 prior to building from source and I find the changes to the main window a bit abrupt. It appears as if the separate controller window has been docked to the bottom of the play window, but the separate controller still pops up too. It feel as if it was left in a half finished state. However, without knowing the goals of the redesign it's hard for anyone to come along, pick up the pieces, and complete the work.

The file is rather big, as it requires changes to MainMenu.nib (the nibs are included in the diff, which looks rather ugly. If you want the .nibs separately I can send those too).

While I'm at it, I would like to make you aware of Lunettes, our re-write of VLC for Mac, which will become a replacement for the existing code in the future (later in 2010).
