The Outliner 2.0 is a fast and easy to use scene management tool. It has a wide
range of features, including selecting, hiding, freezing, linking and grouping
objects in the "Hierarchy Mode". In the "Layer Mode" you can organize your scene
by dragging & dropping objects from one layer to the other.
What's more, the Outliner offers support for nested layers, to organize scenes
more efficiently. The interface is nimble enough to keep it open constantly.
