This is a preliminary minor release of a major build for LGM with a number of bug fixes.

You can download the new jars from the Extra Packages page.  I have also updated the hashes so install.py should also fetch the new jars if you prefer to use the script. I have decided to not include this in a new Portable ZIP until everyone has had the chance to test the changes.
NOTE: You will need to update both the new plugin and LateralGM jars!!!
http://enigma-dev.org/docs/Wiki/Install:Extra_Packages

Change Log
Regressions that were introduced in and then fixed in this version are not listed here.

1) Asking to save changes should now be conditional and only show if you have actually made changes. You can also make changes, run your game, see the changes reflected without having closed the frame, close the game and still be able to revert the frame.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/53
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/152
2) Game Information frame now properly recognizes changes, it will not complain unless you have actually changed a property or edited the document.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/14
3) Constants frame has been partially fixed, it had several bugs in its revert methods and what not, it should now properly detect changes as well.
4) Enigma Settings have been more integrated with Game Settings, you should no longer see the node in the tree and the Game Settings frame should now also now properly recognize changes to Enigma Settings.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/153
5) Non-instantiable resources should now have the proper references after reloading and creating new projects.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/23
6) Tree filter has been redesigned to be a little less bloated looking.
7) The X button on resource frames no longer commits twice.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/151
8) Fixed exception when clicking on tile tree under the "Edit" tab if no tiles exist. Also fixed a similar exception for instances.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/93
9) Keyboard shortcuts have been moved to a properties file where they can be customized more easily, though we need to still work out external files and user modification.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/147
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/blob/master/org/lateralgm/messages/keyboard.properties
10) Search feature implemented, it will search all arguments of every action of a script, shader, object, timeline, room, or instance and the nodes open the resource frame and select the appropriate event, moment, or action and open the correct code frame. Clicking on result nodes will also focus the correct line in the corresponding code editor or focus the correct argument entry field on an action frame. Directory structure is maintained and there is also a context menu that can be used to select all nodes and copy them to the clipboard to share search results.

https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/3ec1050391b287f56d525ba2daa1e1ec27a1457f
11) Fix for bold nodes, there was an unreported issue where new children of bold nodes would become bold once you started renaming them, we now format the node with HTML instead to give it the bold effect.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/2610f4244d89cdac4dcae6489d5d754e91e70522
12) Fixes Look and Feel bug for "Windows Classic" it's a known UI bug, just had to set the property in our look and feel code.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/f4a3b96999b126e176645e26429ffa97bca0477f
13) Fixed Look and Feel bug for the regular native "Windows" look and feel, this will not be applied unless you explicitly state this LNF over the "Native" one, it stops the buttons from being cut off.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/f4a3b96999b126e176645e26429ffa97bca0477f
14) Removes one touch expandable splitters, they have been replaced with a more common software implementation, double clicking will toggle their expanded or collapsed state, no need to spend hours in frustration hitting tiny little buttons.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/f4a3b96999b126e176645e26429ffa97bca0477f
15) Maximized state of the window will no longer be lost when changing look and feels from preferences, I was repacking the frame which I shouldn't have been doing.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/f4a3b96999b126e176645e26429ffa97bca0477f
16) Fix syntax check button from appearing multiple times on a code frame, action frame, or script frame. The issue was the subframeAppeared being fired when the frame is already visible, I simply added a parameter that tells us whether the frame was previously visible in determining whether to add the syntax check buttons.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/47cd8e6863cec8bdc403077c19b93ca6fd17b51a
https://github.com/enigma-dev/lgmplugin/commit/418a7f4ed8ae7455db69a5d448d232e1e6a472a2
17) Adds greater than or equal to and less than or equal to as options to action_if_variable as well as other actions that Studio forgot to; you will need to fetch changes from enigma-dev until the Portable ZIP is updated.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/118
https://github.com/enigma-dev/enigma-dev/issues/849
18) Old GM files will now scan their rooms and automatically flag the setting "Used as tileset" for backgrounds that are used as tiles in any room (committed by sorlok). This effectively prevents them from being unusable.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/pull/154
19) Game Information text alignment is now properly saved and works at runtime as well.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/91#issuecomment-58131802
20) Fixed printing dialogs on both Game Info and Resource Info frames, they work exactly as expected and I've tested them. No print preview exists yet, but I've requested it, though Studio also does not have it and you can also preview by printing to OneNote.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/155
https://github.com/JoshDreamland/JoshEdit/issues/9
21) Added external look and feel support, please see accompanying tutorial post.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/a12aab573ed190aeea75a5bcc7f0d5e49ad6e16d
http://enigma-dev.org/forums/index.php?topic=2283.0
22) Improved the main zoom tool for the Sprite and Background editor, the calculation was wrong. It will now properly center around points.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/87
23) Fixed loading exception dialog, it was not properly displaying the stack trace. It was also showing multiple dialogs, and there was an issue in the GMX reader. Additionally I made the populateTree method check to see if a node of the registered types already exist, what this means is if you have an error trying to load your project you won't end up with a duplicated tree.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/907c58d3093e90fcd1776a0452e361e5c396f70e
24) Fixed exception in the Room Editor when icon is missing.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/67892a0be78a8301572f5e6c772ab4860c8353ee
25) Swing Icon Pack is no longer included in the jar, nobody wanted to maintain it and LGM only needs 2 default icon packs, 1 nice looking one and a contrasting version of it for dark themes.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/59a5233b2ad90bc8aea5e3926f54c901d0be3a78
26) Fixed an issue with custom icon packs, the custom path should not have caused the icon pack option to always be overriden, I had the implementation backwards and intended for the internal jar location to be used when the custom user path did not actually exist.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/d696eb226024b45135719fd1fceefb288fd9bcc4
27) Fixed exception reported by Josh caused when centering instances in the room editor that do not have sprites.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/a941309fb67f8bbbfb015b70f701bd17aee6435f
28) Fixed a painting exception in the ImageToolTipUI occurring when hovering over resource menus.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/158
29) Fixed an issue where certain look and feels would cause the main frame to overlap the toolbar on Windows on some platforms, and yes this also includes the default Swing look and feel. https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/3329a3abbae19f6bdaa0d7df6ea841119acb1690
30) You can also use a custom background image for LGM's window area now, create a file called "lgmbackground.png" in the "lookandfeels" folder next to lateralgm.jar and the image should be applied during the splash screen when you load. The following is a link to LGM's dark background.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/eb8fd916690fc17098fab6ef189f785261902efb
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/blob/master/org/lateralgm/main/lgmbackgrounddark.png
31) Fixed long existing PropertyLinkFactory disposal issues that were propagating into race conditions in multiple editors. ResourceFrames now dispose of them automatically, custom PLF's will need to be disposed by overriding the frame dispose method.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/8662754845f35486315f178d63c56135cfe9352d
32) Fixed a mistake made in Game Information that caused its little settings window to create its controls twice.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/35e3f35ddcd615eaa3b799c23b20f834ad981643
33) Simple JoshEdit print support added, word wrapping is not yet supported just like Studio. Printing interface is designed to be Java/AWT/Swing compliant and implements the standard feature set.
https://github.com/JoshDreamland/JoshEdit/pull/14
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/6bffacb07b99465840fb8de806395bf2f1f14df6
34) Exception reporting has been improved for file loading errors, GmFormatException and ProjectFormatException were essentially throwing away half of the stack trace.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/c78f55713ab9f1cae4d24e1e722bdc08aa0ce69f
35) Fixed horizontal and vertical snap properties in the GMX writer where they were being written backwards.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/e3cebad0e345e9364ed6b1b424b7ea0bf639d3c4
36) Fixed transitivity in some toolbars.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/befdc03419ad05f438ba956e34b16272438df92e
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/124
37) Window decorations can now be disabled, this means the look and feel will not be able to decorate the window border if you don't want it to, this required fixing the toolbar transitivity first.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/e86d680d5ede0bdd1f42112c5add1ecb4af6c8c5
38) Hardware acceleration is no longer forced off, there are now preferences to force OpenGL or Direct3D on or off or let the Java system decide and there is a similar preference for antialiasing of control fonts. The JVM will detect if your hardware supports hardware accelerated rendering so I recommend keeping the settings left at "default" but for those of us that do have the capable graphics hardware this will seriously improve the speed of rendering for LGM. Testing sprite animation playback was a lot smoother and higher frequency once I implemented the preference to stop forcing it off for everyone, it also reduced CPU and RAM usage significantly.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/ec03f8a16da9f4bb8799b729043ba78d7c048271
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/b86360a18862a77e8b5809b7ee51fa031a584ee4
39) Fixed a component transparency issue caused when using *.lib action libraries from GM, they were supposed to be taking the transparency color from the bottom left corner.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/ae0dc208a0b4bdc2fdd436c66403fcafb2ab5d7d
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/161
40) Fixed the EventPanel layout, it was setting it before actually laying out the components causing it to look incorrect under certain look and feels, specifically the new dark one.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/42828a931c3c948f973314b6876d2ac50fc8cd3f
41) Fixed an old mistake I made in the Game Settings frame mixing up the DESCRIPTION and INFORMATION properties.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/6d581dd3ddd221073102f5862e10aa64adebf83d
42) Switching look and feels no longer breaks layouts, I have a special wrapper class for this.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/ea3cb9d31770650e20a315c525f491cb28b14173
43) Stopped a look and feel change from readding the icons to the Preferences tree, just had to make a custom class as a wrapper and basically an empty shell to fix it.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/ea3cb9d31770650e20a315c525f491cb28b14173
44) The MDI area scrollbars are now only shown when needed, so when you maximize a frame they will not be visible, just like normal MDI managers and the one in GM8.1, giving just a little more space on screen.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/f995c9b91a94dc09877cf75ce15b2ed3789d6f73
45) Icon reading exception fixed by sorlok for some ico files that have empty/fake masks.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/304937f4ab31a3efae10f221feab29518f291879
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/163
46) Implemented undo and redo to the action list editors you can undo multiple actions such as move, cut, copy, paste, delete, and clear. The only thing that does not yet get undone is changes to the actions values, not even recognized yet as an undo operation.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/ed00e3885c1a6015ae0060a59cc20711865750b2
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/f06e70a5157b9112ab47bb4f94d6d35ca6527156
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/5f7ff9b3ce49ac37757981f95a354b490fe3fb4b
47) Fixed exceptions for some file open dialogs when you enter a filename for a file that does not exist. This needs further cleaned up.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/e5785eff85ced88d09e6ce4389c1228e5b849dee
48) Added APNG loading to the sprite and background editor, the file extension will need to be ".apng" for LGM to load all the subimages from it, or it will think it's a regular PNG. It can be used to mix GIF's and APNG's in the sprite editor. This required moving the APNG reader/writer from the plugin to LGM.
49) Added line numbers to the action list editor that uses the default UI colors for now.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/303dcc656e03ebe115c77461ac935bee04a73c6d
50) Added a save button to the sprite and background frames, the sprite frame will save the selected subimages or if none are selected it will save all subimages, in order for it to be animated you will obviously have to save to an animated format such as APNG, GIF writing currently does not support multiple subframes. A dialog will also be displayed warning you if haven't yet created an image for the sprite or background.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/337081b85d4b212c51d12f2bcf5261bef0e14224
51) Fixed a typo in the GMX reader that was causing room persistence to not be read properly.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/978f1fda054a49d265e51ab0d64f1771547b4255
52) Load dialogs will now verify that the file exists and if it does not it will warn you to verify the file name. You will see this on all file dialogs, including the one for loading projects, images, sprites, game information, etc.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/4239d4caa97becf095a78ecf28b01249f9b90673
53) Added confirm overwrite dialog to JoshEdit and LGM file choosers when saving files to disk.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/f152da04b3430ac5a19b614ddcb2acd16fd570ee
54) Temporarily patched an issue that caused the language preference to not explicitly override the operating system locale, though I am currently waiting for IsmAvatar to see if she would like it fixed differently because I have another solution that is just as easy. This issue was reported by egofree.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/14ecabc1d953199ca026f5a36fa4f18be04f3221
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/169
55) You can now preview icon files when loading them. We broke Christian Trebel's ICOReader when we originally ported it by automatically closing the stream, this is incompatible when plugging it into ImageIO, you need to close the stream manually. So that is fixed, but also I double checked to make sure streams were not left open from game info and elsewhere and properly closed the streams where they needed to be.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/3165a36a2f54d67fbb9f0bd7d8da13a203b640e8
56) ICO files can now be loaded by the background and sprite editors, the sprite editor will load all layers.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/020ab9e23792728863d7b79f7b8102467968a485
57) Prefix options have been full implemented, you do not need to restart they take immediate effect, adding new resource types also doesn't require updating the preferences frame anymore, it is generated dynamically.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/3165a36a2f54d67fbb9f0bd7d8da13a203b640e8
58) Game icon and version information have been fully moved to the Platforms/Windows tab in Game Settings, Project Information is now fully implemented as well so information and description are properly distinguished now. Other platform settings are soon to follow.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/3165a36a2f54d67fbb9f0bd7d8da13a203b640e8
59) Made the layout for physics options on the object frame more compact and correct.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/3165a36a2f54d67fbb9f0bd7d8da13a203b640e8
60) Fixed a race condition between messages, preferences, and resource kinds which was necessary to implement prefix preferences. So the tree groups can be translated again.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/3165a36a2f54d67fbb9f0bd7d8da13a203b640e8
61) Increased the default room size a bit, default size is way too small.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/3165a36a2f54d67fbb9f0bd7d8da13a203b640e8
62) Added missing separators to some resource frames
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/3165a36a2f54d67fbb9f0bd7d8da13a203b640e8
63) Symbols are translated again for the object frame, so no double semicolons will appear under the French translation.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/3d7163ece15d20b8166464d40ed4b479a43fbe39
64) Added translations for messages that were not translated before.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/14ecabc1d953199ca026f5a36fa4f18be04f3221
65) Switched the executable file chooser to use the LGM CustomFileChooser, so it will now ask you whether to overwrite files when you save an executable and things like that.
https://github.com/enigma-dev/lgmplugin/commit/6e03fe2a3699128822c82a9871671f4f790c0e69
66) Stopped the sprite frame subimage selection from going out of bounds when clicking a button, the last frame will still be properly previewed.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/3d1842c5981fec8a81395dcc94093a974a7b2c1f
67) Fixed issues where the checkered patterns for image previews were not resizing without closing and reopening the resource frame, this was caused by me caching the image without checking if the size changed.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/3d1842c5981fec8a81395dcc94093a974a7b2c1f
68) Image effects frame implemented and 12 basic effects including Colorize, Intensity, Outline, Emboss, Black and White, Invert Color, Remove Color, Remove Transparency, Sharpen, Blur, Opacity, and Edge detection. The little green spray paint can icon on the sprite and background frame will open the image effects frame. For sprites you can apply it to all selected subimages, otherwise just select 1 subimage, if no subimages are selected it will be applied to every subimage.

69) A fix was included by egofree for the GMX writer to give all tiles unique names using the id, which works with Studio though is less hash-like. A similar fix was previously included for instances by myself.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/c6f7a9d9e56646c2a1a85c54d148e030c957be1f
70) Fixed exception in instance list of the room editor when selected instance has a non-existant object reference. For example you create an instance of an object and then delete the object resource, the instance becomes of unlinked.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/fe40e656d1a577d0556d29505aad3fe8548f1dac
71) Moved transparency functions, such as for checkered patterns, to Utility class.
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/commit/b00c81e5fe5b78218d271f65309c954b335e461c
72) Moved the current tile layer above the tabs and other changes include removing the now useless "Batch" tab
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/pull/179
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/pull/182
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/pull/185
73) Fixed depth issue to make sure the selected instance/tile is always visible
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/pull/186
74) Fixed a tile moving bug
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/issues/183
75) Added rectangular selections tools
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/pull/189
76) Added cut, copy, paste functionality to the room editor
https://github.com/IsmAvatar/LateralGM/pull/192

In the new search feature "Matches" are number of lines where the word is found. Not the number of found words (which is what Matches seems to imply). Like "ball = ball2;" while searching "ball" will returns "1 Match" even though it will highlight both of them as it should. But I really like that representation. Can't wait until we can search in objects. :) And then we could actually use this tree structure to also open events.

Glad you like the features Harri! I am working hard to improve LGM.

PS: Thanks for editing your big ass error log out of your post.

Excellent news !  :)  (Y) These features are really useful, especially the new search function. Here is my first impression :

- I prefer the new search toolbar, it's looks less bloated than before.
- The search icon is ok, but i would prefer a magnifying glass without the book behind.
- Would it be possible to add a key shortcut for the search button ? (enter key)
- When clicking on the search button, let's display the search results tab if it's not already visible. Right now it's now visible that the search results has been completed if you are on the 'Resources' tab.
- I hope that next you will add the possibility to open the script windows in the search results.

Keep up the excellent work Robert !  :)

Additional note after a very brief chat with Josh:
* Please hide the ["Resources","Search Results",etc] tabs when not searching.

a preliminary minor release of a major build
I believe we call that a release candidate

Alrighty you guys, I've rolled out another release, the directory structure in search results is now maintained and the nodes are clickable, it will also search shaders now, or should anyway. There is additionally a context menu for you to copy the results to your clipboard too. I've changed some other things as well like making the split dividers double click expandable, so read back over the change log.

Additionally I've fixed the classic Windows look and feel, the MDI frame buttons will no longer be cut off, same with the regular Windows look and feel. You will have to explicitly set these look and feels over "Native" from the preferences window though because I was afraid the fixes may look funny on XP.

I am not to sure about this suggestion because we want it to be fundamentally different the find and replace behavior. Also we use the magnifying glass for zoom, and binoculars for Find & Replace. I am also seeking to expand LGM's external modification abilities to allow things like customizing the default icon packs.

Right now I have enter assigned to open the selected nodes frame, I think we may be able to go with both of your suggestions instead however since ALT+Enter is actually already mapped to open the resource frame as well.

I'll look into before we reach the stable release.

In the new search feature "Matches" are number of lines where the word is found.
I still haven't fixed this yet but I know exactly what you mean, it's showing the number of lines that have matches not the actual number of matches.

I think i've found a bug : i load a project and i do a search, then i load another project, but the search results is still there with the previous results, and if i click on a result node, the script window of the old project is displayed. Shouldn't we reset the 'Search results' when a new project is loaded ?

If you click several times on the same result node, something very strange happens : the script toolbar and status bar get corrupted :

By the way, i guess it's not yet implemented, but it would be very useful in the script window to set the cursor on the selected line.

That syntax check button spamming happened before as well. You could replicate it by just opening scripts all the time. I don't think I ever reported it, but I assumed others might have noticed it too.

egofree, I guess I should reset the search results, yeah. I was going to leave them be because I didn't think they hurt anything, but that's really weird they would still be able to open. I am getting around to making the result nodes also recognize scope, I mentioned that in the change log.

Also, Harri is right the syntax check button can break without the search feature in the same exact way, I was able to reproduce the issue and I'll try to get it fixed, I don't know what's causing it yet.

Edit: The syntax button is an easy one, it's just a simple frame/plugin issue, if you close and reopen the frame it's fine. I've uploaded a patch, please check the extra packages page for both jars.

The bug for the syntax check button is gone. Thanks Robert !
I know it's work in progress, but it would be useful in the next update to search also in the 'Execute a piece of code' actions.

Edit:
I tried to copy a search result line in the clipboard. It copies the search keyword, but not the whole line. Is this normal ? For instance, i've searched 'global.active_region', and i've the following line : 'global.active_region[2,HEIGHT]=604;'. When i paste this line, i've only 'global.active_region'.

Hmm, I don't seem to have that issue ego, try using CTRL+C instead of the context button, because the context button has stopped working for me, I'll have to fix. I also noticed the search results tree needs placed in a scroll panel.

The arrows buttons work only for the 'Resources' tab. What about doing the same for the 'Search results' tab ?

I think the following modification would improve the user interface : instead of having a 'Search results' tab in the resources panel, what about having a panel only for the search results ? For example, let's have a horizontal panel at the bottom of the main window (as in Eclipse or Notepad++). Every time the user is doing a new search, a new tab would be added in this panel. Each tab would be 'closable'. This means we could have several 'Search results' available, and the user would see very easily that a new search results has been completed. What do you think of my proposal ?

Alright I've added scrollbars and fixed the context menu copy action, please test it again. Additionally since ALT+Enter also opens resources when typing in the search bar, I made regular Enter by itself perform the search and automatically open the search results tab as you suggested egofree.

The arrow buttons are really only useful when the tree is not filtered, the search results tab is always filtered so every node is pretty much a result node, buttons are pretty much useless in that context.

I had already thought of that but I felt it detracted too much from the idea of it being a reconstructed resource tree. The tree is also likely to have more vertical than horizontal dimension given a large number of results. It would be better to have a docking framework where you could pop it out and look through because it's honestly likely to be big both vertically and horizontally. Let's just focus on getting it finished first.
