Hi guys,
It'd be great if we could discuss this on the IRC chat this Sunday at 12:00
UTC and reach a final destination --

If not, please comment here on specific parts of the proposals and reasons
why they are desirable/undesirable.

Note that the tab bar will have the look defined by the OS, and thus the
document area will most likely be white.

Kendy, do you think the toolbar can be made responsive for this release? If
not, I'd probably agree to go with a sidebar.

I'm also curious if it will be possible to hide the menubar in the Center
and have wizards, the lesser-used document types, and help in a menu at the
end of the toolbar.

Hi all,

I just want to remind you the deadlines here so nobody is surprised if
they are missed ;)
- Kendy asked for a design for alpĥa 1 which is due for week 45
(November 4 to 10)
- Hard feature freezed & branched libreoffice-4-2 is due for week 47
(November 18 to 24)
- Hard English string & UI freeze is due for week 51 (December 16 to 22)
after this date it will be too late if any string has to be added.
- Hard code freeze & branch libreoffice-4-2-0 is due week 2 (January 6
to 12)
after this date nothing is possible anymore for this release.

So please, makes it possible as soon as you can, we will be able to test
it and have feedback without stressing too much. Thanks in advance :)

Kind regards

Maybe you have noticed in the daily builds the new Startcenter that
LibreOffice 4.2 will come up with.  It is focused on improving the user
experience based on the assumption that the user very probably wants to
edit documents he/she has edited in the past.

But there is a problem - when they open LibreOffice for the first time,
there is no recent document, and the Startcenter looks just too empty;
see here:

It would be great to provide default graphics for the case there is no
recent document yet - can you please start the call for designs & come
up with something beautiful & helpful that we could use inside the huge
white area? :-)

It should be resizable, or able to survive resizing.  I believe we
should be able to get some text into it too, but hypertext might be
problematic I'm afraid.

Other than that - looking forward to the designs! :-)  It would be
awesome to have the designs for Alpha1, in case some programming is
necessary; so the deadline is 4th November:

Thank you in advance,
