Right. The gui rewrite was a huge part of extended that was incorporated into vanilla. Obviously the plugin mechanism makes deken possible!

I’d like to find a way to bring in the consistent font sizing in as well as the help patches Jonathan updated. Maybe worth bringing up again? There is a lot of good work that shouldn’t be lost with the transition, if possible.

Basically so people will stop downloading an out of date extended if there is an easy way to get the same/similar functionality from a much newer version of vanilla+externals. Judging from the continued extended bug reports of things which are generally fixed in vanilla, I’m thinking it would be a good idea to see what’s needed for a transition and start that more formal conversation.
