Plans for v0.8
  • Pre-Load Multiple Layouts.
        ( https://github.com/psifidotos/Latte-Dock/issues/808 ) 
Latte v0.7 introduced multiple layouts that change based on Current Activity user changes. This was the first step to see what users can do with it and if such a solution is realistic. The feedback is very positive and even though the audience is small, there are users that have reported very interesting workflows. At the same time some users reported that they would like to have these layouts pre-loaded based on the Active Activities. In such scenario switching between Activities the specific Latte Layouts will be instantly available. When the user activates a new Activity then its layout is loaded automatically and when an Activity is closed that layout is off-loaded from memory. Technologically this is very challenging and pushes our current implementantion to the limits but on the other hand it is possible. If you want to participate in the discussions feel free to join the above thread.
