Managing JBoss 7: UX updates

The current JBoss 7 development stream contains an updated version of the console that will be shipped with Beta3. We've removed the clutter on the left hand side and do now provide a cleaner separation between navigation and functional elements. The LHS is now only used for navigational purposes and the any functional element (i.e. add, delete resources) has been moved to the toolstrips on the right hand side. Along with this change we've turned the stacked navigation sections (used to display only one at a time) into a more tree like structure, that shows all available options at one glance.

In our opinion this make it much easier to find relevant management options within the UI. Let us know what you think. Screenshots attached.
