Re: [libreoffice-documentation] LO 3.5 release announced


Hi :)
I think that for most of the guides we should skip the 3.4.x branch completely and just work on 3.5.x.  Exceptions (imo) should be GS, Writer, Base and possibly Calc. 

I think the GS guide is important for each branch as it covers the most 'obvious' stuff that people need to know.  Similarly for Writer.  Writer is the main app that most people use most of the time so it's important to get that guide out for each branch too.  With Base i don't think it would even matter if different chapters were for different branches!  The important thing is just to get a first version out there and then worry about consistency afterwards.  I'm not sure about Calc.  It's probably the 2nd most used app but still quite a long way behind Writer.  The Users List almost never hears from people using Impress.  So either the Impress Guide is stunningly good and significantly better than the other guides or it's the one that people do read before jumping in or Impress is very intuitive for people or not many people are using it, or some combination of those.   

So, i think complete GS and Writer for 3.4.x branch, keep going with Base and skip the rest?  What do other people think?  Are any of the other guides (or even 'just' odd chapters) near completion?

Also don't forget that while 3.3.x and 3.4.x started at almost the same time and ran alongside each other the 3.5.x and future branches wont run in the same way.  There will be some overlap with one branch ending just after another has started but not such a huge overlap as the first 2 branches.

The release of LO 3.5 has just been announced. We are falling further
behind, team!

I've had only a brief look at v3.5, but I could see a few conspicuous
changes that will need to be written up in the user guides.

When I have a chance, I'll create a page listing the changes that I
find will need to be made to the guides, similar to the page I did for
LO 3.4. Or someone else is welcome to do it. Release notes (useful for
our purposes) are here:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/3.5

And an interesting infographic of the highlights is here:
