HI all,

I had playing with Christoph's icon set last day, trying to make the 256px version for some icons. I made icons to Writer, Calc, Impress, Draw and Base. My style is a little different, so I also made [few] changes in the background "document" to make sure they "fit"... :)

For decrease the SVG file size (1.5MB), I saved the file in the Compressed Inkscape Format (SVGZ - 116KB). But the wiki uploader don't allow this filetype, so I uploaded the normal SVG file... :/

I hope you like them. Commentaries and critiques are welcome :). I hope also we can complete all steps said by Berhnard and may release the new icons in LibreOffice 3.3.1. :D

Hi all,

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 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!

Best regards
