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.

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