It seems that Mcneel started testing a new user interface with the cool tab function. It allows you to easily intergrate your most used tools into Tabs.

Add tabs

Usage:

If you want to switch to new ui, just type the command: testfancytoolbars and open your default toolbar layout(*.tb) or the  file (*.rui) of  Automatic Generation. The program will convert the toolbars you tick into tabs Automatic, You can also drag other toolbars whatever you want to insert an existing tab.

Other Commands:

TestsetPascalColors

TestSetdrawColors

LayoutWorkspace

testFancyToolBars

TestToolbarOptions

TestsetViewportBackground

You can even change the tab/background/… colors to match your taste.

Do you have some ideas about this new user interface? For me, it looks ok.
