The decoded protocols part should allow the analyzers' developers to group different detailed information in one line which the user could expand/collapse. Example (expanded):
- READ DATA [2 bytes]
-- BYTE: ['0x41']
-- BYTE: ['0x41']
Also we should be able to move the decoded protocols section to an horizontal position (more width instead of height).

Tthe decoded protocol window could be vastly improved when more than a couple of frames are analyzed. The decoded bytes can usually be grouped by some arbitrary order (which depends on the upper protocol that use the lower I2C/SPI/1-wire/… decoded protocol), and it comes difficult quite rapidly to navigate from one logical frame to another. It would be nice, for example, if it would be possible to:
1. add markers within the decoded protocol window
2. "organize" the successive bytes with the help of a hierarchy tree view: Logic GUI would create a 1-level depth as it does for now, but the user could easily "indent" the lines so they could be grouped into a n-level depth list view. It would help understanding the protocol and move *fast* from one time frame to another, especially with the help of markers/bookmarks. This indentation could be easily made from the keyboard/mouse, or from a high level API. A very good example is the way Wireshark renders the many layers of nested protocols.

I think the ability to decode protocols is the most useful, but also the weakest part of the Saleae software. The text file export could be improved. Expand/collapse would be a good start, but the ability to filter and search...now that would be invaluable. It would be more than valuable in case invaluable doesn't mean what I think it does.
