The Ubuntu instilation slideshow is a text/html/css/images slideshow
built with css and javacript. Although it's designed for reasonably
short presentations, which automatically slide, it is almost perfect
for this.

You would have filters at the top of the page, and they would filter
first by version, then by application e.g:

  Since version: | All | 3.0 | 3.3.0 | 3.3.1 |
  In Application: | Writer | Impress | Calc !etc, etc

  |                                                                   |
  |                                                                   |
  |                                                                   |
  |  <         HTML (not just image) Slides        >  |
  |                                                                   |
  |                                                                   |
  |                                                                   |

Hi Matt, all,

I have a suggestion regarding long pages such as

Basically - make it lots of smaller pages.

Basically: Yes.

We need to work on most of the pages to reduce the amount of text and add
more graphical content.

While we wanted to avoid third level navigation where possible, I think that
this is not possible, if we want to keep this content on the website and not
move it to the wiki.

Coordination should be done in collaboration with Ivan and Christoph, but
someone / several people will have to *do* the work - as both of them spend
as much of their time as possible for LibreOffice.

But back to the "new features" page:

I don't know if this page will stay in this length or will become shorter
from time to time.

It depends mainly on what we decide are "new" features:

Features introduced since the last major version (LibO 3.0 -> LibO 4.0)

Features introduced since the last minor version (LibO 3.3 -> LibO 3.4)

Features introduced since the last micro version
(LibO 3.3.0 -> LibO 3.3.1)

My idea would be a possibility to change between these different subsets for
the visitor (and keeping the structure based on the sub-applications) - as
well as a search function for specific features/fixes.

Perhaps this would be easier to create and maintain (as an option to add the
features/fixes by their developers - together with screenshots they took
while testing it), but this is open to discussion.

I added Michael Meeks to CC, because he has been the driving force behind
this page.

Ofcourse it may be more effective to provide something more like a
slideshow, such as the Ubuntu instillation slideshow (with a few
tweaks to suit LibreOffice, and longer presentations)(which is based
on JavaScript, CSS and HTML), could provide a valid solution for this.

A slideshow containing not only screenshots, but text too might be possible,
but I can't imagine how this will work hierarchically.

I would reccomend developing a LibreOffice slideshow framework/API
(based on a simple slideshow like Ubuntu's) and use it accross the
website where applicable (like the New Features and Fixes page).

We already have Colorbox - a possibility to integrate single images and a
line of images to the page.

(see the second example - with next/previous buttons)
