Thanks for the offer :-)

If you could identify specifically which new features need screen shots,
I can try to provide some.

You'll find a list of the new features and some ideas for screenshots on
the LibreOffice website:

As reflected in today's "linux magazine"
the new features don't really seem all that impressive.

Well, it depends on the point-of-view, I'd say. A crowd of new
developers was guided by a few "old stagers", having a new working
environment (different chat, mailing list, source code repository,
building environment, ...) and put in some features and improvements. 

Many of the things are "under the hood", e.g. the hard work to translate
many comments from (still) German to English, so that even more
developers can join more easily.

Next, the given release had been localized and QA'd without some of the
tools that have been available before (they are working on it...). And
all the contributors will provide a release that is stable and mature to
please Linux distributions and corporate users.

So from my point-of-view, for a very first release, this has been an
amazing work! Although it will be essential to move on, and to provide
something that "just works" for the user. For sure ...

What do you say?

Hi all,

Oh, it's still really great to see how much support an urgent request
for the website is considered!!!

So, I take the task and will deliver the screen shots may be the day
after tomorrow. If you want to help, just go on on this thread.
This is still your chance to contribute, it's not difficult, David has
detailed everything, see bellow.

Kind regards

Hi all!

This is an opportunity for community members interested in spending
some time for LibreOffice, but didn't know exactly how:

Please take screenshots from the new features in LibreOffice we can
add to the features list at the website.

Upload them to the wiki and tell us here which feature you are
working on at the moment, so we can avoid double work.

Here is Christoph's mail containing details (sent to the design and
website list):

Hi all,

there is still a small gap to fill - could anybody please jump in and
help to populate the "new features" site? Some screenshots are still
missing ... Michael (if I remember correctly) added some ideas how to
present some of the features.

And, David once mentioned how he did the screenshots, so please have a
look at the requirements - this really helps to make the site look
consistent (for the features, please pick the things that apply).

a) Take them under Ubuntu Linux, using the Ambiance theme, with *no*
visual effects.

b) Take the *window only* with the window frame - not the whole

c) 1000px wide by 750px tall - you can use Screen Ruler to
size the window.

e) Anything up to a dozen good shots from each app is what I'm
to accumulate.... in each app, demo the key features: in Writer,
tables, indexes, etc..... I'm sure you see what I mean....

f) The file you use for taking the screenshot should ideally be
"sample.odt" (or whatever extension)
Thanks a lot!



Best regards
