New Easy Mode gives lightning fast and easy (~two click) workflows for common use cases/alignments.
Want to align surfaces? With Easy Mode, just select a face and hit "Start Alignment", then select another face and hit "Apply to Active". This simple ~two-click workflow is available for all main operators, in addition to the classic modes (now called expert mode).
A new geometry manager panel has reference planes (XY, XZ, YZ) and axis lines (X hat, Y hat, Z hat), for copying/pasting into expert mode alignments, plus it has persistent geometry storage for repeat workflows.
There's also new support for multi-edit-grab-all (MEGA!) when you want to grab alignment keys from a selected-but-not-active-object in edit mode. Just beware of its quirks, described on the release notes page.
All of the operator panels have also been renamed, along with the tab name (now just "Align").
