The new Info.plist editor  is very nice, but it would be nicer if you could still access the Generic Plist editor from that GUI, either in a separate tab or via a link that would open the Info.p-list in the Generic Plist editor.
The issue is that any settings regarding, for instance, App Transport Security and Privacy Usage Descriptions are not available in the new editor. These properies always had to be added/edited using the Source tab in XS/VS4M. Not to mention many other settings that were only ever available by editing the source of the file (whether in a text editor or with something like the Generic Plist Editor).
Yes, I know you can open the Generic Plist Editor by right clicking on the Info.plist and choosing Open With... Generic Plist Editor, but this requires closing and re-opening the Info.plist. It would be better, IMHO, to allow anything that is needed to be added/edited to be added/edited with the default opening of the Info.plist via double click.
