[in Inkscape] Hey, I'm more than happy that you changed the tool in order to improve our collaboration :-) And, I think there will be some more minor iterations, so the application icons might wait (a second, or two). > Now, the ambiguous part: working with the color pallet at , I found > some small points of possible improvement.

Although I did some designs in advance, I noticed this for the icons as well. Although I had hoped to have some final colors to enable the guys who (might have started) the marketing material, slight changes might be possible. Now the good message from my side: Since we do have this weird Calc table  for creating the palettes, the is not that much hazzle. > I will comment on Bernhard's design tomorrow - hopefully what I just > wrote makes some sense :) Well, I also added some icons to the wiki - to be viewed in Inkscape, please. Although there are pixel-perfect, the remaining stuff is more pixel than perfect (color gradient issues, unnecessarily stacked objects, ...). Personally, I still don't like them that much, but it should work. Since some of us talked about to keep the "TDF Document Symbol" as clean as possible, I went back to use the old metaphor with the "dog-ear" edge. Okay, here they are: . Some organizational stuff ... Today, I've asked concerning the MIME type icons for the LibO 3.3 release within the SC phone conference . Although we need to wait a bit longer for the minutes, here is the (hopefully) essential information: * Technically, a release is possible at the end of December, but people think that this might not be the best time (Christmas), thus early January will be targeted. * Changing the icons is possible and the chance for introducing "regressions" seems rather low. But, ... * People might have started to create marketing material (screenshots etc.). Thus, they might rely on a stable version that does not change during the next weeks. Thus, the changes are not that bad, or? Personally, I do think that a visually pleasing and consistent release might be more important than some screenshots that might differ a bit. So, what if we want to work on that? I had a look at the OOo pages concerning the ODF icons. They do have a good document covering the file types and the icons  - I hope that helps to ensure completeness on our side. Bernhard, Ivan, all! Thanks for your great work to make LibO 3.3 not only an unique, but a truly great release ;-) Cheers, Christoph  http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Marketing/Branding#Resources_3  http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Marketing/Branding/Mimetype_Icons/Proposals#Christoph  http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/TDF/Steering_Committee_Meetings#Agenda_2010-11-28  http://wiki.services.openoffice.org/w/images/0/0c/Oo-filedlg-filetypes.odt -- Unsubscribe instructions: E-mail to design+h...@libreoffice.org List archive: http://www.libreoffice.org/lists/design/ *** All posts to this list are publicly archived for eternity ***
