Can I use Avalonia with Mono and MonoDevelop? (Linux)

and i recommend using .NET Core instead of Mono
i develop in linux full time so i either use AvalonStudio or Visual Studio Code with C# & XML Formatting Extensions
regarding GTK, we are exploring options for a pure Xorg backend so in the future we wont have to rely on GTK

@kekekeks I had a quick play with dawn, on windows some of the examples work for me, my mac is very old so no metal, I tried forcing opengl in the code but just got a seg fault. It is obviously early days, I just wondered if you had found any more resources on it as they seem a bit sparse.

@jmacato Alternate modes seem to be working OK if last keyframe's Cue is set to 90%
99% or 100% doesn't work

@kekekeks sorry i havent looked at it just yet, i'll take a chance at fixing that soon
seems to be some rounding error on the frame iteration equation

We can improve this further. I just need suggestions.

I'll have a look.

That is much better and certainly usable with no extra styles.

I think I prefer the uwp pivot style but that is just personal ( and I have been told that I have no taste).

I guess as tabs are used for so many different things, 1 style is never going to be perfect i.e. the tabs in an editor tend to be different to those in a settings dialog.

The default look should be as simple as possible in my opinion.

My view is that the default should look absolutely stunning. Hopefully, as the user base grows, some design types will appear and create some nice themes, the control catalog is starting to look a little dated.
@Gillibald btw that wasn't a criticism of the tabcontrol
