Project / Library Hierarchy Changes – SVN 504 and 505

Understanding the Project / Library hierarchy has been a major source of pain and confusion, for users and developers alike. It also leads to a lot of extra clicking in the interface. Today we drastically simplify this.

The existing concept of the Project didn’t gain us much, it only contained Libraries (planned functionality based on the Projects never came to fruition). So, why not drop the Project from the hierarchy? It serves no useful purpose really, and just adds complexity.

We’re left with the “Library” – but does this really describe this collection of files and Tags? Instead, we’ve renamed the existing Libraries to Projects.

The interface is almost exactly the same, with the exception that there is one less page to click-through to find your Libraries (er, now Projects).

So we no longer have a Library… for now.
