At least in the last week or so I found the coding motivation that I seemed to have misplaced. I did some hacking on Paladin and was amazed at how easily a couple of features came together. I *finally* managed to make drag-and-drop group reordering work correctly. This has been a feature that I've been personally missing since drag and drop was implemented in the project window. There's even a visual regular expression tester that's been added to the Tools menu.
The feature that's holding things up is the Code Library. The concept? Encourage (and in my case, simplify) code reuse by creating modules of code that, once imported into a project, remain synchronized with the master copy. It's a little like source control, but on a more basic level. It seems simple on the surface, but it's turning out to be more of a challenge than I thought. I personally plan to use it a *lot*, so I'm waiting to get it right before the next release.
