Hi!

Just wanted to know what is the purpose for the newly introduced in dev branch LocalNav property on MenuItems?

Cheers, Piotr

That's only for the admin menu, and it's part of some UI refactoring we're doing.

Ok, thanks - I was just curious. I'm currently dealing with navigation and thought it may be something more important:)

If you are looking at the menu and ajax as well for the admin user experience as stated on the roadmap, could it be that you are putting together a front end for the back end that will end the back and forth of full page refreshes?
If so, then I found a jquery plugin called jframe pretty cool at http://garage.pimentech.net/examples/jquery_jframes/

LocalNav = Local navigation is used to activate tabbed browsing. You can have a look at an example in the Themes page.
