    The Parabola theme was developed quickly, with the idea that its life as default theme would be short lived. After 5 long years it has outlasted its expectations, but now its REALLY showing its age.

    VisioList 1.6 will ship with a new default theme, the theme will be simple, clean, and responsive (mobile ready). If anyone has any special requests for the new theme, this is the time and place to post your input for consideration. :)

    Version 1.6 comes with a different look and something change as improved security , optimization, or something else?

    It would be nice also improve the appearance of the Admin area , the current is simple but is well outdated and face it is not pretty.

    1.6 will be bug fixes, optimizations, and new default theme.

    the admin area was not really a priority, it's functional and very few people ever see it, but eventually it will be updated. If there is a specific part of the admin you really dislike, feel free to mention what part and I will see what i can do to make it better :)

    I think it's not just me, but I spent a lot of time in the Admin area , always following the registrations and other details could be improved colors , let him also take a responsive and changed in this menu.

    Here is an example of structure and colors that I found beautiful, http://envato.rathemes.com/infinity/default/editors.html

    With the huge todo list I have, colors and style in the admin section is really not going to be a priority. Once more urgent issues and some of the great feature requests are dealt with I can look at updating the admin panel but I think most users (and I could be wrong) would rather see development effort put into functionality for their users rather than admin styling.

    morrigan I put the "Cute" in "execute"!

    Could there be an option of having Google Graphs for statistics instead of tables?

    Yes 100%! Great suggestion

    I think another awesome thing, and this may need to wait for 2.0 instead of just the next skin release, but drag and drop widgets instead of static widgets that you have to go through and change in the skin. So instead of having categories in a specific place I can add that widget to the side bar and in the position I want, IF I want it there. It could even be similar to the "menu" setup.

    Given this is a 1 developer operation, that one is less likely, drag and drop is nice, but really its just a bit of bloat, its not like people edit widgets so often that an interface is needed to position elements, a little HTML editing will always be required and even the old menu system works terrible IMO, for the amount of code and effort it took to build that menu system its FAR more productive/effective to simply code your own menu with HTML/CSS.

    Yes I know Wordpress does all of these things, but that's what happens when a project gets hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding to pay developers :) Our resources are VERY limited, so development priority is given to things that really improve functionality and security, draggables is a nice icing on the cake, but we need better cake first. :)
