    5658=== Changes from Iteration 4 -> Iteration 5  ===
     60We ran a focus group at Berkeley during one of the BLUES (Berkeley Laboratory for Usable and Experimental Security) Lab meetings. 14 researchers, ranging from a spectrum of computer science to pure user experience researchers were in attendance and provided feedback on the design. The discussion started with an overview of various censorship environments around the world, followed by a discussion of how the 3 simulated censorship environments in the lab were representative of these conditions, a walkthrough of Tor's current (5.0.3) version of the launcher and the ideal path for a user in each of the 3 simulated censorship environments would take, and the results of the qualitative user experience research. Then, we presented our new design (Iteration 4), stated our justifications for changes made from the original launcher to our new design, and concluded with a discussion of the design decisions made and possible improvements.
     62We believed that sanity-checking our design before large-scale testing would be wise, since it is time-wise and financially costly to run such an experiment. During this focus group, the researchers worked out little kinks in the design, discussed alternatives and made a collective decisions to implement or not implement possible changes, and polished the design to look more aesthetically pleasing. Yay! Here are the changes that will be made from Iteration 4 to Iteration 5: 
     641. Auto-proxy detection: 
     652. Smarter redirections:
     663. Proxy configuration before Bridge configuration:
     674. Eliminating enumeration:
     685. Visual guidance:
     696. Updated text:
     707. Finalized windows:
     72(If you want to know more about specific design decision which seemed like good ideas, but we decided against implementing them for various reasons, you can look in the discussion section of this wiki.)
     74We hope that Iteration 5 will be the last iteration of the user interface. We're ready to get testing on the impact of these changes on real users!
