Windows GUI: we made some changes in the tabs of the main window, including resizing and rewording.
We made the tabs adjust better to the title, so more text is readable now.
We also made a big change: "Items view" is gone and now we call it "Workspace Explorer". Hope this won't annoy old users, but we think "items view" is too abstract for many newcomers.
This will solve this User Voice Reduce tab text to fit within tab shapes
Now, a story about "items view": back in 2005 we named versioned files and directories "items". In fact, each version of a file or directory was called "revision" but in order to refer to the abstract object itself we called it "item". See what I mean? An item can have many revisions, each of them containing data (contents of a given file or the directory entries if the item is a directory). Item/revision is like class/object. We had this "item" concept so deep in our minds, that we kept the "design name" in the GUI. And it survived 13 years :-) Now it almost sounds ridiculous to us, but for a long time we didn't almost pronounce file&directory but "item". Fortunately, now we simply try to make things simpler for users :-)
