Since Raptor is coming slower than we are hoping, I decided to give you all a preview of what it will behave like.

Starting with the revision r945664, you’ll be able to see all the glory of the Raptor mode for Lancelot.

This is probably the last feature that will be introduced in Lancelot for KDE 4.3. I’m not sure about the category buttons on top, because they don’t really have a purpose now, and the no-click paradigm doesn’t really work in Raptor mode, but it is still retained as an option.

There are some layout problems, but those will be fixed in time for 4.3.

I hope you’ll like it. If you want to test it before 4.3, just compile the SVN trunk.
