I completely agree. Though I love the SDI for most other purposes, I
have felt the need for such an optional tabbed window for images.
vote = vote + 1
There are flexible layout options for almost all dialogs. For almost
all dialogs you have these option:
1) Show it a seperate window.
2) "Snap" it under/over another dialog.
3) "Snap" it along another dialog as another tab.
You can also pull a tabbed dialog out and make it a window .. and I
can go on with more options currently possible for dialogs.
Now why not have these same options for Image windows? It is your
choice what you want to do. I nice feature as a side effect would be
"Open all images in directory in tabs". We can have as many "Image
container" dialogs as we want.
Other UI features I would love in 2.6:
1. Save project / Open project.
2. Side panel toolbar. - why not have the toolbar in the image window
like the mozilla's/konquerer's side panel.
