I played with the Home button idea, and the "jump to project" menu, too ... the problem is it would mess up the forward and back buttons even more. Maybe if we removed those completely? But then, when you explore the project gallery you certainly want to have a back button.

Maybe someone has a good idea to be implemented for next year's release.

What I could do for this year's is add a preference to bring back the "new project" button. Would anyone be really happy about that?
