When the new mini launched I was ecstatic because it was BLAZING FAST! 🔥 I even added a comment here praising you all for how amazing the new, simpler, mini was.
However this recent beta has taken a huge step backwards. The keyboard navigation of the lefthand panel feels much more like the "old new" mini. Where, even though I have my key repeat rate set to its highest level, the scrolling when I hold down the cursor keys is extremely slow.
I can't remember exactly but I believe that you all changed that you are now waiting to refresh the details panel before the keyboard navigation is allowed to go to the next item. This is 100% incorrect. The rendering of the details should be asynchronous or be delayed by about 100-200ms to see if another key is going to be pressed. For mouse users this is going to be barely noticeable but for keyboard navigators this is detrimental to workflow.
However, it's not just that, the rendering of the details panel is far slower. If I just press (for example) "down right" to go to the next item in the list, then focus over to the details, the delay is unbearable. It may be that this is alllllllll related to the changes made to navigating the lefthand panel, but I just wanted to give you all another use case to look out for.
The other thing that makes this feel like the "old new" mini is the "elastic" feel of the navigation when you hold the key down (again mine is set to the fastest it can go) and then you stop and go the other direction. It takes a second for mini to realize you changed directions and continues going in the opposite direction for a bit. This isn't nearly as bad as the "old new" mini where it would move by dozens of items before realizing you were going the other direction, but it's still wrong.
I just wanted to voice this here. I think I'm probably one of the more vocal keyboard navigators on the forums and I wanted to make sure this was brought to your attention sooner rather than later.
