Description Petr Dvorak 2009-04-14 16:16:21 UTC
It would be nice if the "Open Kenai Project" dialog contained tabs "Featured", "Freshly baked" and "Search Project", so
that user is presented with featured and new projects, and not only with the ability to search a project (he/she has to
know the name first).

The last tab would contain the very same content as the dialog contains now, others would be just lists of 10-20 projects.

This certainly requires a new web API -
Comment 1 Petr Dvorak 2009-07-14 14:08:31 UTC
IMO this is more relevant since the "Open Kenai Project" action is in the main menu - at least some "hot" projects
should be advertised in the dialog...

this issue cannot be implemented without KENAI-448.
Comment 4 Ondrej Langr 2009-08-14 11:20:23 UTC
How likely is it that KENAI-448 will be implemented? I'm a bit hesitant to spend time on UI design for this which would
then not be used. 
Comment 5 Petr Dvorak 2009-08-14 16:41:30 UTC
There is a development in the issue 448 - JB says the functionality is already there, it is just ndocumented for some

UI design attached, reassigning for implementation.

Log: #162607: support for recent projects. Use "&filter=recent" and "&filter=featured" as search patterns
Comment 9 Petr Dvorak 2009-09-01 22:14:43 UTC
Almost implemented - I didn't manage to add the images and I am not sure to what extent they are doable (the component
uses some "nasty" swing hacks)...

If you feel strongly about the images, please open separate issue (and probably assign it to "saubrecht" directly)...

Verified, done for 6.8. Open Kenai project dialog contains featured/recent project tabs.
