## FLOWBLADE 2.8
Date: February 9, 2021
In this development cycle we focused on making the application more configurable
. Among other new features we made panels layout, keyboard shortcuts and middleb
ar customizable.
### CONFIGURABLE PANEL POSITIONING
For the first time it is now possible to change the layout of the application by
moving panels to different positions using **View->Panel Placement** submenu. C
urrently the feature is only available for screens with resolution of 1680 x 105
0 and up.
### NEW THEMES
Application look'n'feel was updated by adding two new custom themes.
* **Flowblade Neutral** is a dark theme with equal RGB values for all hues provi
ding a neutral backgroud. [Screenshot](https://github.com/jliljebl/flowblade/blo
b/master/flowblade-trunk/docs/Screenshot_THEME_FLOWBLADE_NEUTRAL.png)
* **Flowblade Gray** is a dark theme with very light blue tint. [Screenshot](htt

HEME_FLOWBLADE_GRAY.png)
* Previous default theme remains available as **Flowblade Blue**.
### FREEBAR
**jep-fa** provided a feature allowing users to select which items in Middlebar
are displayed and in which order. Feature is available by selecting **View->Midd
lebar layout->Free Bar** and then **View->Middlebar layout->Configure Free Bar..
.**.
### CONFIGURABLE KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS
A subset of keyboard shortcuts can now be changed. From the hamburger menu in **
Keyboard Shortcuts** dialog select **Add Custom Shortcuts Group** and click on g
ear icons to set shortcuts.
### TOOLDOCK
User can now optionally use Tool Dock widget to select Timeline Edit Tools inste
ad of the middlebar drop down menu.
### FILTER EDIT PANEL UPDATE
Filter panel was updated. The previous left side **Filter Stack** and **Filter S
election** list boxes were removed in favor of the more common approach of havin
g **Filter Edit Panels** themselves being arranged in stack.
### NEW FILTER SELECT PANEL
**Filter Selection** panel was moved to right side of the Timeline. User can add
filters by double clicking on filter items or by doing a drag-and-drop on top o
f Timeline Clips.
### COLOR ICONS
**jep-fa** provided a set colored of icons to be optionally used in the Middleba
r with **Николай Смольянинов** providing some additional contributions. The feat
ure provides a differentiated, bright and colorful look for users who prefer it.
### OTHER CONTRIBUTIONS
* **Relink a directory** feature for **Media Relinker** contributed by **jep-fa*
*
* GitHub Actions build workflow contributed by **Dan Dennedy**.
* Fix broken 'ui' object references in editorwindow.py **Nathan Rosenquist**.
* startup: support usr-merge by **sgn**.
* Don't use legacy directory for Appstream metadata **City-busz**.
### NEW FRENCH USER MANUAL
**jep-fa** created a new French language user manual with large amount of up-to-
date screenshots and icons shown and explained. The manual is substantially long
er and more detailed then the current user manual and it might very well be wort
h the effort to translate this to English to use it as the new project official
user guide.
