Really great effort, look forward to using it a work tool.
first impressions ..
(a.) needs better utilization of tree pane. Actually not issue with
Lightning itself. Large impact on users with complex folders, multiple
mailboxes - if this window area is halved (looking at alternatives).
(b.) right / left arrows are repositioned due to length of month-title,
particularly left arrow. If user tries click, click, click .. they
focus and miss.
(c.) click (or right-click) on view-title, eg. 'March 2006', should
lead to dialog for 'GoTo': with fields (for year, month, day); quick
select week/month/year for next, prev buttons; as well as 'Go to
today', week nn, etc. Otherwise buttons too cumbersome for large
interval. ie. Sep. '08
(d.) colour shading for public holidays, regional, and special
(red-letter) days would greatly enhance views. Although this would
still have to be 'standard' in the iCal files.
