Hi Ivan, Bernhard, Thorsten!

@ Thorsten: I shamelessly CCed you, so maybe you can answer a question
concerning the LibO 3.3 timeline? If possible, so thanks in advance :-)

I didn't manage to download and install Beta 3 by now, so I can't say if
there is anything left to update these graphics and adapt them to the new
contemporary style.

Reading Christoph's blog and knowing him for some time I think they are all
up-to-date: ;-)

Unfortunately I didn't see any of the new graphics in Beta 3. I know
the progressbar in Christoph's graphic doesn't match the actual
progressbar (of course, that's really easy to fix)... 

Ouch, Bernhard. To be honest, I am kept busy with all the mails: the
website stuff, some requests at the LibreOffice dev lists, collecting
further ideas (not yet published). So I use very small time slots to
progress with the branding.

According Thorsten, there is still enough time to get this implemented
(I checked this in advance, to have an excuse for my laziness) :-)


*New Mimetype and Document Icons*

Oh, there are some more important things ... like the application icons,
or the MIME type icons.

[... discussion on icons development for LibO 3.3 ...]

Ivan - Do you think such work is manageable?

I wouldn't like to start anything without getting a clear signal from
the devs/QA as to just how much time we have to do this - if there's
not much time, then I'd prefer to avoid rushing.

Thorsten, the question to you - is implementing a set of preliminary
icons possible. Will there be another beta to make sure that everything
works fine? Or should we forget about the idea of different icons (to be
honest, if we could come up with own icons, this would make the LibO
release perfect).

For example, has the
new color pallet been OK'd in terms of accessibility (i.e, will they
meet the needs of colorblind users?).

Although we did not judge the visual experience with real people that do
have color vision problems, but Johannes created some simulated versions
of the color palette. Available here:

In my reply, I asked whether we can come up with "preferred" color
combinations that still work effectively ... No reply yet ;-)

At the same time, the concept itself is pretty simple, so if we are OK
in terms of timeframe and accessibility, then I have nothing against
putting in some time for this. But we'd need (at least) a small team
to work through this.

Sounds good :-)
