Thanks ! You spare me from having to write this ;)
I started the tabbed nav very late in the 2.2 cycle so it didn't get very far.
Some things I'd like to see in it are:
* limit the amound of visible tabs ; add a paging mechanism for too many tabs to display
* a bread crumb would be nice too
From my experience: instead of trying to packa everything into one portlet, use a common code base, but several portlets (or render utils) for specific incarnations like tree vs list, vs popup , etc. I found too many config options for the same portlet to be confusing.
I was about to report that when there are many tabs, they wrap onto a new line, which messes up the header graphic, but then I saw this thread.
When will a new tabbed nav portlet be available?
Any news on the development of the enhanced NavigtionPortlet?
