What is the strategy with modal dialogs?

Asked by Erkka Juhaninmäki on 2012-06-12

I've been testing Gala recently and I've noticed it has modal dialogs similar to Gnome Shell's Mutter. However, because of Granite elementary has different kinds of dialogs. For example Scratch' "Preferences" dialog looks exactly like Gnome Shell's dialogs, but "About" dialog is Granite's own with rounded corners. So I'd like to know are you going to change either of the dialogs to make experience more consistent?

Hey Erkka,

For now we're working on basic feature parity with what we had before and our deeper design and development work is set to land in the next cycle. We're not 100% positive where the future will lead us, but rest assured that we'll be taking the time to think things through and make sure what we end up doing makes sense.

I can fully understand that, I just wanted to know what to expect from Luna. I trust you're doing your best and I'm sure Luna will be awesome and Luna+1 even more awesome! Thank you elementary team!
