Last June, Robb Beal invited me to join him via IM in brainstorming a better SubEthaEdit document collaboration experience. For this improvisatory review we both used SEE v2.0.1, which was then the latest release (the collaboration interface has not changed appreciably in subsequent releases).
A summary of our recommendations:
- The collaboration interface should be designed around people, not permissions.
- Labels should clearly indicate functionality and/or status.
- The distinction between Internet and Bonjour-based sharing need not be strictly enforced.
