I think the second would be confusing because of the tabs used for multiple files.

On my side, I was suggesting that : http://www.arduino.cc/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1266171915#5
Being able to select the programmer setting (bootloader, usbtiny etc) of the preferences.txt file from the Menu. That menu could be hidden and shown if you check a box of the preferences so that it doesn't confuse the newcomers.
Or even better: profiles that allow to give a board a name, a type, a port and/or a programmer. The last profile setting used with a sketch could be stored in the file itself.

Yes, linux-like...
A first step could be an import dialog to simply add a lib to the librairies folder. For example,
- you would download a file like LEDControl.arl (zip file renamed),
- open it automatically from the browser in the Arduino IDE,
- confirm, unzip/install.

Oh thank you, that's a good news for now!

Yes, that is what I also need, a profiles system in fact...

That's possible, I think there is some unique number in the FTDI?
Anyway, being able to select a ICSP programmer from the IDE is missing for me.
This is in the preferences.txt file, so it would be easy to integrate...
I have 2 Diecimila, a Sanguino, a Rainbowduino and a few other standalone circuits. It's often useful being able to quickly switch from one to the other, for example if you're programing a Diecimila that needs to talk to a Rainbowduino?

When I want to program my Sanguino or another board without FTDI, I must Quit, edit a config file for my programmer and relauch the IDE.
It would be great that selecting a device selects also the serial port OR the programmer according to the last settings.
Otherwise, a menu for selecting serial or ICSP programmer. (Menu could be hidden and would appear to the advanced users according to a preference in the Preferences?

What do you think?
