the MimeType icons didn't make it in RC 4, even if Christoph and
Thorsten Behrens tried very hard to make it happen.
Unfortunately the icons are spread among a multitude of places inside
the OpenOffice.org source code, so it was impossible to replace all
appearances of the icons. Without thorough testing it would have been
very likely that there would stay some old icons or appear broken links.
As such an appearance would have caused a less professional impression
than staying with the present icons it has been decided to leave them
out of this Release Candidate.
If there will be another stopper, leading to a fifth RC, this might be
reconsidered, but at the moment it is planned to include them in
LibreOffice 3.3.1 - giving more importance to the next version that
should be released in one or two months...
For a realistic planning I think we have about two or three weeks to
finalize the icons, giving us (probably) enough time to test the
improvements we had to postpone because of the short timeframe.
I included Jaron's and my icon designs in the source file as different
layers, so it should contain all the present versions of the icons.
I want to thank all of you who spent their time in these designs and
comments - it is a great experience to have the chance of working really
collaboratively in a team!
Let's finalize the icons, include them in the source and have it tested
for LibreOffice 3.3.1. I think we can be really proud of the work we
already did and we keep on doing!
Make it just work, and look great, too!
