Thanks for all of your commens about the new view icons, painful as they were to read :( ... and I read them ALL and I read Nathan's (LOL! "another clock face, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing"??? )
That's exactly why I posted them here, so this has been a great affirmation of the blog. The Development team has NOT checked the new icons in.
I can't say exactly what we'll do because some of the people I need to coordinate with are on vacation for the rest of the year, so it might be a few weeks before I can give you a full update on the new plan for view icons. I'll do my best to give you some red icons back (among other things), especially since many of you probably got all red and the face and your blood pressure went up looking at the icons.
The unexpected gift was that many of you said that such a change would BREAK the applications. Hooray! -- not hooray that the icon change would break the application, but that so many of you feel that UI bugs are REAL BUGS! Thank you for your support!
