New UI and Tasklists

๐ŸŒบ Anchorpoint should not feel so heavy. So we have completely adapted the interface again. The preview page is undocked (like in the macOS Finder) and can be closed via space.

  • Tasklists can be checked by users

  • Attributes show who has checked a task and when

  • Attributes can be added to tasklists

  • Attributes work on sequence entries

Actions

  • DCCs can be started via actions with dedicated enviroment variables

  • Actions can be deactivated

  • Actions work on multiselection

  • Settings (credentials, custom paths to DCCs) entered by the user are stored in a settings store accessible via Python
