    Great tip! I saw something about this feature when Blender Foundation added it, but I just haven’t used it yet! And this tip is actually coming in good timing, because I’ll be soon rigging a model I’m working on that’s going to be rather complex. I’ll need this! Thanks!

    Actually before 2.5 bone groups were also creating seperate channels in the action editor.
    which made life easier for animating complex rigs.
    It was actually the main reason for me to use bone groups.

    but it seems that channel groups have been removed from 2.5 or not implemented yet.
    Hope It’s gonna go back into 2.5, otherwise it has not much use of them (bone layers are good enough to organise your bones in the viewport)
