[Drum roll...]

RevLive! Conference attendees will be among the first in the world to  
see and purchase (conference discount!) the Visual Application Browser  
in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 8, 2008. (As you read this announcement,  
scantily-clad show girls and muscular, oil-covered men are being  
contracted for this event).

Visual Application Browser has been created and developed by Daniels &  
Mara--the creators of GLX2 Script Editor for Revolution based in  
Austin, Texas, USA.

The Visual Application Browser (VAB) features the following:

- an easy-to-use, browse-able Object Tree
- a Live Snapshot of your object's card
- a layout manager with alignment guides that appear as you move an  
object in the Live Snapshot
- a configure-able Property Editor
- a single window with Tabs just like GLX2

VAB has:

- direct links to and from GLX2
- a make-it-my-application-browser option
- a make-it-my-property-inspector option

With this handy tool, Revolution developers can now:

- Click an object in the Object Tree or Live Snapshot to edit its  
props or move/cut/copy/paste it.
- Click an object in VAB's Live Snapshot and see where it is in VAB's  
Object Tree.
- Know in a glance the ownership hierarchy of any object while editing  
its properties.
- Move a control around within VAB's Live Snapshot to line it up with  
some of its buddy controls.
- Move, copy, cut or paste controls to-and-from VAB's Object Tree  
quick-and-easy with short-cut keys.
- Re-layer a card, control or group by dragging and dropping it within  
the Object Tree.
- Edit groups by dragging and dropping controls via the Object Tree.
- Have a tab for every clicked object, just like GLX2 does with scripts.

I've already started using an alpha verison of VAB and I have to say:  
it's VABULOUS!
