Bug #533

new File|Open to accomodate new UI design

Estimated time:


The "File|Open..." menu will now display a list of data packages that are owned
by the user in a dialog box. This replaces the current "ownerQuery" panel that
is displayed in the main morpho content pane. The dialog will have a radio
button that lets the user switch between displaying all owned packages, just
those that are local, or just those on metacat. Be sure to consider how this
list can be configured to use hierarchical folders as described in bug 306.
When selected, the package will be opened in a window as described in bug 532.

The search window will produce result lists that are structured in the same way
as the open dialog (again, see bug 306). When one does a search, double
clicking on a search result (a package) should open it in the same way that the
File|Open dialog works.

Need to redesign or eliminate icons for this new view of the data (bug 356).
Also note the new dependency on bug 306 in terms of creating folder views.
