Hi Christoph, David, all,

Round 2!

Ideally, the preview would provide the full screenshot to appear
(Christian worked on something like that before).

We can easily throw in a lightbox:

This one allows very basic captions by grabbing the title attribute of
the <a> tag and displaying it in the lightbox itself.

And even more ideally,
users may just browse / being browsed through a collection of
screenshots (with some brief words) that "visually" explains the new
features. Oh, I seem to start dreaming :-) Just ideas...

Here's something that might do the job (again, with simple captions):

It's easy enough to do (technically); what we really need are good
screenshots and text.

These are just some of the many options at our disposal...

My proposal was to pick up everything that had been included in the
first LibO release, and to check against the strongest wishes of our
user base (happily, we do have this data - so we can avoid too much
guessing). So, our end-users can quickly find what's important to them:
More downloads --> more happy users --> more market share --> more
attractive project --> more users, developers, sponsors, ... :-)

Although developers invest a lot of effort to work on important stuff,
some of this work has almost no end-user related impact on LibreOffice
(now). The job of marketing and UX is to help to connect the both (let's
call it) worlds of "users" and "development" :-)

+1. Of course, developers are most welcome to join the lists and add
their thoughts.
