New Feature, usability: Render (Toggle map rendering) option for every layer.

Having an option to selectively freeze rendering on desire layers would increase productivity, specially when focusing work on a particular layer of a big project with many layers.

The Render check box on the status panel can be set to show three states, so the user would know if 1 or more layers have their rendering frozen; the check box action could reset all layers rendering at once --rendering on or off for every layer--, just as it works today (QGIS 1.7), but the user would have the additional option to set layer-based rendering under "Layer Properties" and get a visual feedback of this on the status bar.

Hello, bug triage...

I am not sure to understand. If you don't want to render a layer, just disable it and it will not be rendered ! You can also have it on a layer basis (you can check/uncheck each layer individually).

There is also a render checkbox to disable/enable rendering for all layers. I guess that everything you have asked is fixed... or am I missing something ?
