StatusPanel created for CM #3432
If it hasn't broken anything, I'd rather incorporate the PR so that people can see status and we can keep the PRs smaller. At other stages (right before a release) I don't like to do that sort of thing, but we're a few days from a release. When do you think you'll have it in a usable state? I'll probably want to get alpha 11 out on Thursday or Friday (2nd or 3rd of July).
@benfry I don't think anything is broken right now though there is two of everything, so this can be merged. But i would be very thankful if someone can answer my doubts as in the previous comment(specially the last one).
I would try to make some more change and get them stable before Friday.

Good question. Because when the mode changes, all the items in the CM window would be affected (as it only shows items for the current mode), correct?
Maybe the CM should be a dialog box, i.e. always on top of everything else.
Or… say I open the CM window, then go to an editor window and try to switch modes. Should we check to see if the CM window is open, then, if so, check to see if any updates/downloads are in progress? We could warn "switching modes will interrupt this update".
None of these are great solutions — I just want to get the ideas out there.
For example, if the download fails part way through?
The Updates tab is just for quick updating, not for exploring details. Clicking a list item does nothing. To see details or update items individually, the user has to switch to one of the other tabs.
I see what you mean, but it's confusing, because, in the first four tabs, the lower panel represents information specific to a given contribution. An "update all" button pertains to more than one contribution, so it would be confusing to have it in the lower panel.
Good catch. We will have to handle this somehow. Could we have individual progress bars for each updating item? For example, the area where the version numbers are shown could be replaced by a progress bar.
I don't think we need this undo button. To "undo" the user needs to reinstall the contribution.
Can you find an example of this? Maybe when the mode is downloaded, we could prompt with a dialog to "quit and restart processing".
For example, if my network connection was working, but then is interrupted? Yes, I suppose the "Try again" area should reappear.
Not sure I understand.
Yes. I can get you artwork for each of these. The wireframes just show concepts, not final images.
I think it's good to keep the links, but let's incorporate this into the design. For example, instead of being redundant (as in the screenshots above) and repeating the name of the library and author, we could include a link below the description to "Library website" or just show the URL, like "www.something.com".
Not sure I can help; this sounds like a Java dev question.
