New and improved Overlay UI layout!

The new overlay that comes with the February update is designed to be modular, using only as much space as needed. Entering the overlay via Shift + F2 greets the user with a minimalistic tab on the left hand side of the screen that details all of the available categories. Clicking on a category will then expand the space used by the Overlay depending on the chosen tab and if any chat windows are currently open.

The notification popups have been redesigned to be more user friendly & informative. At a glance, it provides the user with information of who invited them, for what game, how long until the notification times out and a prompt detailing the keyboard shortcut to open the overlay.

Overhauled chat tab
The chat tab has gone through an extensive redesign with general usability improvements and a focus on better controls, a more intuitive interface & greater accessibility. It is now easier to maintain several chat conversations at one time while closing and re-opening the overlay will keep the chat windows open and easily accessible for the user.

Changes in this release:

New and improved overlay
Added notification when launching a game from Steam Big Picture mode informing you that you can open the on-screen keyboard


Bug fixes:

Fixed a crash that could sometimes occur when double pressing the X button on a controller during cloud synchronisation
Fixed a client hang that could occur when losing connection during the initialisation phase when launching Uplay from a game executable or 3rd party app
Fixed a case that when launching Eagle Flight from Steam for the first time, the name of the game would not display in the Uplay activation window
Fixed being unable to install progressive download enabled games after they reach "playable" status in the same Uplay session on 32-bit operating systems
Fixed an issue in which Uplay would attempt to re-install an old version of Origin enabled game
Fixed news not being displayed for users using Korean language in the client
The game download/patching window will now close when cancelling a download from the download manager
The "Create desktop shortcut" option will now create shortcuts for all playable executables, not just the default
Multiple localization fixes


We hope that you like the new UI and we welcome any feedback that you might have!

I love new Uplay design and new overlay really cool...BUT, why panel on the LEFT side ? it's terrible and ucomfortable...

Please come back overlay panel on the right side or add button in settings to select the display side.

There is one very annoying thing in the newest update.
If the connection with Uplay servers in temporarily unavailable, the announcement which appears while playing in the game is on the bottom of the screen, which is irritating as many game control features are located there. The previous right corner was not problematic at al!

You will be happy to know that we just adressed that bug and a fix for it is now live in the client. The notification now only shows up when the overlay is open.

Thanks for your feedback, it is much appreciated! Your suggestion to being able to chose the side is noted.
