Death of Recent Tab?

Topics: General
Jun 29, 2012 at 1:36 AM

We are thinking about killing the Recent tab as it's been a bit of a bug farm, it's hard to get people to agree on what its behavior should be (especially when things like Package Restore are brought into the picture), and we don't think many people use it.

 

So the question for you is: Do you use the Recent tab?  Will you miss it if it disappears?

 

This is something we've been talking about for probably a year, and we're thinking of acting upon it in NuGet 2.1.

Kill it. Which one would be the always selected tab when you first pull up the gui then?

We always remember the last tab that you selected.

Okay, took me an extra second to realize what recent tab was. Shows how little I use it.

If there's no other opinions, we will go ahead and kill the Recent tab.

Kill it dead.

I use it because it's better/faster than having to go search again. Would I die without it? No. That doesn't mean it's not a useful feature though.

never use it; its faster just to use the search input anyways

Thanks everyone for the input. Recent tab is gone now. I've committed the change.
