3.5 is the way forward. I'm running it and I'm enjoying the experience :)
I just wish there's a better icon theme or is there a way to throw the UI open to system's icon 
theme. I use faenza on GTK3 (fedora 16, Gnome3)?

Hmm, the call-out leaders for comments didn't get reviewed. Sometimes comments on a phrase 
overlap. It should be better to use highlights rather than arrowheads for the 'comment' 
call-out(balloon). I use this feature a lot :(

I'm happy to 'miss' the conspicuous margin borders ... Just neat.

Java 1.7 support? Thought the idea was to liberate LibreOffice of the Java dependency in order 
to improve performance.  Great, my custom-developed extension works as expected. I'm glad pyuno 
didn't get broken. Next I'll be testing the speed of creating about 20sheets within a loop. 3.4 
had speed issues there.

Until then ... Well done LibreOffice team!

Hi :)
It is well worth talking with the Design Mailing List about icon sets and theming.  I think they 
have some neat tricks and good sets.  

URL please?

I am not sure who deals with the contents of tool-tips or balloons.  I have a horrible feeling it 
might the the over-worked and under-staffed Documentation Team.  Documentation might not seem 
glamorous or sexy but it makes a big difference.

Tom :)

I wasn't talking about tool-tips.  I was talking about the "COMMENT"
feature (CTRL+ALT+C). I have created a quick (sloppy) scenario here:

Those icons on the toolbars don't give me joy any more.  The "markers"
or arrowheads used by the comment leader (the dashed lines) confuse the
readers.  Its hard to tell which text owns the comment in that phrase.
Sometimes an entire paragraph may need a general comment (in addition to
small comments targeted at small phrases or sentences within the
paragraph).  LibO still doesn't differentiate those very well.

If you have the job of reading student's reports and making comments ...
you'll frown at libO.  Its just confusing and I've introduced LibO into
our repertoire of School software in our Institution

Oku, O
