Hi Matt, :-)

Like I said, best to consider that Michael Meeks is the "client" for this page.

My best advice is that right now we just need to make the present New
Features and Fixes page look good with the info that it currently
contains. May be a good idea to just keep it simple for now...

We need something where *all* the features/fixes are covered on the
same page, without the visitor having to go to different pages.

We need something that is a little less bandwidth-intensive on first
load - think nicely-presented thumbnails linked to enlargments.

It would maybe be rational to go with the slideshow widget (see the
page types dropdown list) wrapped up in some pretty CSS. For the CSS,
Ivan did some styles that are incorporated into the current site CSS
that you could maybe use. See this thread for info [1].

The present page really sucks, but we have not yet been able to
convince any of the design guys to jump in and start re-formatting...

Oh, and the last thing would be that we need it this year and not next
century! :-D (let's forget the "iterative, community-based approach"
normally recommended by the Design team for the moment and let's just
"get the job done quickly").

Don't be shy to mail Michael directly, he's very interested in this page.

My 2 cents. HTH. ;-)
