Initial feedback.
It works on Windows-7-64.

Unlike the MDI, which has multiple windows sets (edit/preview/console) this
just has one console for all tabs.
Thus you don't have anything to identify what console messages relate to
which tab.
It is obvious for current happenings, but not if you want to scroll back up
to look at something.
I don't know whether the console should indicate what tab is the source of
messages, or how...

Also it seems strange having multiple tabs but one preview.
I assume the use case is meant to be have the main program and libraries as
tabs, then go to the main program tab before doing F5/6 etc?

With only one document, can you get rid of this gap? [My pet hate is wasted
screen real-estate, you could see one more line in the editor...]

Thanks MichaelAtOz for the reply. I fixed the toolbar issue. Now the toolbar gap is not visible when there is only one document. Besides, there are some more fixes.

Steps to download most recent version of OpenSCAD with multi-tab feature:
2. Select the icon before the last commit - in the picture its green tick, it can be red cross or yellow dot.

3. Click on 'Details' link according to your system's os:
    a) Linux - openscad-appimage-64but
    b) Windows 32 bit - openscad-mxe-32bit
    c) Windows 64 bit - openscad-mxe-64bit
4. Type '#artifacts' (without quotes) at the end of opened link and press enter
5. Download exe/zip file(available for windows) or appimage file(available for linux).

Just don't break multi-window operation.  Pretty much, I hate tabs.

Yes, multi-window operations are supposed to stay, the menu
entries will change quite a bit though. Maybe still give it
a go as feedback in the next let's say maybe 2 or 3 month is
much more likely to be integrated quickly.

ciao,
