    I have used the new Alpha 1 and found the layout okay but graphics to be stunning!
    I agree that I won't upgrade unless the page tree is on the left of the editor.
    It should look exactly like your diagram. Switching via Pages tab will NOT work.
    I personally found it ultra slow (maybe due to Alpha release). Approximately x30 slower than current version 2.4.6
    In all versions of Silverstripe I have struggled to be able to duplicate a whole page including content, metadata, etc.
    Duplicating a page at present requires creating a new page then saving, going to the other page, copying data, going back to new page, pasting, saving and repeating the process until all completed. It's a nightmare! In most cases I need the same layout and formatting. Metadata is always the same and only a few words change.
    Another problem I encountered was the html editor didn't appear until you click the save button.
    I am mainly looking forward to the new version 3, due to the comments ability to be used multiple times on the BlogHolder.ss

    Just to be clear: that screenshot comes from SilverStripe's own designs on GitHub: https://github.com/silverstripe/silverstripe-design

    From what I've heard, something like that will make it to the final version.
