Comment (by mcs):

 Work-in-progress patches are available on the newui branch within the
 brade tor-launcher repo, here: https://gitweb.torproject.org/user/brade

 Note that we have rebased that branch a few times so far and we may do so

 The implementation is now close to Linda's latest specification, minus the
 fancy progress bar with icons. We did make an enhancement that is not part
 of Linda's specification: some errors that previously generated separate
 alert windows are now displayed using an overlay, like this:


 We did this as part of a general effort to reduce Tor Launcher's use of
 alert windows; while trying to fix #21542 we found that they cause
 problems (that ticket is on hold for now, but we plan to come back to it).

 If you want to try the new Tor Launcher experience without building from
 source, follow the instructions in ticket:23261#comment:3 (we replaced the
 .xpi file on people.torproject.org with a new one). We still have some
 loose ends to address, but comments and bug reports are welcome.
