Messages tab is gone!!!

Come BOINC 6.12 the Messages tab is gone. Why did you do away with the Messages tab? Do we ever get it back? It isn't gone, it just moved out of sight to Advanced -> Event Log.

Basically our findings suggested it was stressing new people out, making them think something was wrong when it wasn't. For instance, quota exceeded on fast machines, or temporary errors that caused a back-off. A lot of the time just letting the client do its thing would eventually clear out the issue and continue processing. Messages are really only needed to diagnose problems.

Perhaps in a future version that the Message tab will come back, but don't hold your hopes up.
