The track ball viewport rotation is the default setting? I'd like it more, if turntable style was the default.
Also I can't get the new Spin View tool to work. How is it used? What should I expect? It also doesn't show up in the tools list of the radial menu setup window.

The new Spin View tool operation is the same as the Rotate View(Alt+LMB). It uses the camera direction as the spin axis to spin the view.

Thanks for the explanation.
Info for everyone: If you let go of the hotkey, but keep the mouse button pressed, so the tool stays active, you can use the shift key to snap the spin to horizontal/vertical.
It's also nice to use this tool in the orthographic views, so I won't have to toggle the view rotate/spin tool (pink circle) on and off.
