This pleased me much:

(Posted to blender.org on March 10th)

Unfortunately they didn't do a great job communicating what is a mockup and what is fully implemented. Still, this makes me really happy. Blender 2.5 could finally give this awesome program the edge it needs :)

Here's a nice image (http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Image:Dev_wcamp_widget_popup.png) to really show how far they are going to render this incredible. With 2.5 they are making every property animatable, so that context menu is a wonderful bit of progress to make the feature actually usable.

In fact, as a GTK person, I'm kind of jealous (http://www.reynish.com/files/blender25/panel_content_anim.mov). Didn't see that one coming.

Maybe I'll be able to use Blender as my desktop environment some day.
