Introducing the new UI and more

Today is a big day for us at SourceLair, and we hope it is for you as well.

That is because, today, we are glad to announce a brand new UI that is going to keep you company during your programming hours.

We, at SourceLair, strive for simplicity and ease of use, while still bringing you all the features you have come to expect from a fully featured IDE. Today, we are one step closer in achieving this goal.
