I am currenlty working in 10.1 and the new Connection Properties window is a bit awkward.

i suggest the following changes:
1 - put the "version" connection back into the Connection Properties window
- having then seperated is really adding time to the set up of a connection
- the seperation is also introducing a new step in the connection set up that is being missed by some users

2 - Bring back the "test connection" button to the interface
- this way you will have 3 choices at the bottom of the panel: Test Connection, OK (to connect), Cancel
- this will mean that a connection can be tested without forcing a connection to the data
    - sometimes you only need to set up the credintials, not access the data

thank you
