New neocom offers:

- Forced reconfiguration of every character after deployment to get icons to the places they were in (many key icons are missing from the bar and are in wrong order).
- Forced window location / size reset to several windows during deployment and apparently during neocom updates also.
- Having a minimise button that makes thinks completely vanish killed window labels and ability to quickly and easily follow local count and blinking chat names.
- Opening minimized chat windows takes 2 clicks and some menu browsing instead of 1 simple click.
- You can not tell which chat is blinking by just looking the minimized window label.
- In old neocom blink activated on event, blinked couple times and left icon highlighted for each new event. In new neocom 1st event activates permanent blink. No way to know about additional events than the 1st one.
- Contract button doesn't light up at all.
- Journal button doesn't light up at all.
- There is very commonly used icons right next to the undock button.
- Ships and items icons are in opposite order related to old neocom and they can not be switched around.
- Random useless junk appearing to neocom bar when doing invention, opening cargo containers and so on.
- Character name was removed making it harder to multibox and quickly tell which client you're using.
- Increased memory usage (dunno if this got fixed already or not)
- Date was removed from the clock

For those who miss the member count visible- don't minimize the window, snap the window bottom to the bottom of your screen and doubleclick on the window bar.

Doubleclicking it again pops it up.

How is the Horizontal development going? I myself am dying for this feature. It would make my gameplay so much better. And no, I am not trolling now.

So.... any info on this one?

I don't want my stuff to be minimized into the neocom, thank you very much.

It was so much more informative to have chat channels minimized in bottom of the screen. You could instantly see in what channel someone said something. One click to bring it up to see and one click to minimize it back to bottom. It was so simple.
Now you could try to substitute that, but it needs some clunky stacking and doubleclicking.
I dont mind all other windows to minimize in neocom, all more room for chat channels. I just wish chat channels could be excluded from this, or work something with new neocom to make it more informative.
