Draft release notes for 18.10
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

We can do this in rBLOG Lubuntu.me Blog but I need to know what we should write about.

Some ideas, and some questions:

  1. Will the manual be complete enough that we should list it right in the release announcement? We have T98: Proofread the Lubuntu Manual of course, but that can always be done right up to the release.
  2. I scheduled a tweet for Wednesday for people to give us cool screenshots of their 18.10 systems, and we'll pick the best ones to throw in the release announcement (with credit, of course). I think that will really hype things up because people can see what you can do with Lubuntu.
  3. Of course, we have to mention our contributors. I have @tsimonq2 @wxl @SBanya @TheWendyPower @hmollercl @kc2bez @lynorian @redwolf @Wolfenprey as a list. Am I missing anyone?
    1. Could y'all maybe give a short description of what you think was important this cycle that you did, why people should care, etc.? I can then work the wording into the release announcement.
  4. Contributor promo, maybe? @wxl, how is our contributor documentation looking? Is that something we can have all nice and polished up, maybe on Lubuntu's Contributor Guide before the release? This release literally wouldn't have happened in the spectacular way it did if it wasn't for all the new contributors.
  5. Screenshots, screenshots, screenshots. I don't know if we should leave this to the manual or ask @TheWendyPower to take some super clean looking screenshots, but assuming we get some good results from the tweet, we can have a separate section of the release announcement highlighting what the release looks like. The press will really thank us for this.

Anything else, folks? Now's the time to speak up if you have anything to say on the matter.

More to come but immediate thought: let's get some cool multiscreen screen shots!

@TheWendyPower is probably going to be the best person for the job there, so I'd like to get her thoughts on it.

I have a bunch from doing the slideshow. I can grab a few more as well. Just tell me where to send them!

Probably just here for now.

Here is a clean screenshot of the desktop. The rest are just the app window. Do you want those too?

Yes please.

Batch One


It doesn't like the VLC screenshots, but they are larger...

I drafted something locally; I'll finish up my draft tomorrow and push it so everyone can take a look.
