Following up on last week’s post, Nyall has continued his work on the QGIS gradient editor:
Latest version of the new QGIS interactive gradient edit. This now includes an interactive plot of the color hue/saturation/lightness/alpha, allowing a visual overview of these color components and easy editing.
Another equally awesome demo has been posted by Nathan, who is currently working on usability improvements for labeling and styling without blocking dialogs:
This is going to be great for map design work because it makes many complex styles much easier to create since you can interact with the map and attribute table at the same time.
These are definitely two developments to follow closely!
