Add further biography fields to New Description Tab

Description

Many of the elements in the Description tab of PCGen are no longer present. These included elements like type of hair, city born, phobia's, etc.

A good exampleis a comparison to PCGen 5.17.9 and it's description tab.

Those elements while may not be integral to the PCGen application artifact, it does help define and tell the "story" of the character. Many GM's/DM's utilize that information as part of routine game play

Hi, I'm a little confused as to why you changed it to a "New Feature" because I'm not sure how it could be "New" when it existed before in previous minor versions. I have to submit that a change in the UI although looks great wouldn't really be something. In that sense of functionality in the new UI is different I would agree it is a "New Feature".

But can you explain the reasoning on this please.

Thanks

Hi Marc,
The new UI is a from scratch implementation. The migration of each piece of fucntinality is new feature work for the new UI. We also assess each peice of UI functionality fior inclusion in the new UI, so there are some things we have very delibrately not included.

Bugs are used where functionality is not working correctly. Yes this is splitting hairs, but it is the way we use the system. Regardless of the classification the work will get done

Cheers,
James.
