As designed Event Hints in Version 1.2 Beta 3



the usage of event hints in the newest release 1.2 Beta 3 brokes the callback execution order. I have two different template hook files in two different addons. The first template hook use an event hint "editor" and the second one use a switch-case-statement with a case "editor". If I remove the event hint from the first addon and put a switch-case-statement in the template hook instead the execution order works as expected. But with the event hint the second template hook gets executed first.

This is as expected now - using the edit hint will always run after a general purpose listener. The general expectation is that "later" is actually better as it gives you more control.
