Hmm, does anyone know an artist that has some time and can draw a splash screen? I would love to see the next edition Called 4.1.3 Phoenix addition, And I would love to see a Splashscreen that shows an Phönix carry the AOOo Logo upward. That would make a statement. Actually thinking of it, if this is liked by the community I would pledge 50 Euro for an acceptable artwork (means liked by AOOo. If this is dev or all involved we could discuss.).

for the followup release I would stay with 4.2.0 as the /life, the universe and everything Version of OOo. I actually like that too much./

5.0.0 I would like to have for something moonshot like. I have fear you will hate me for what I have in mind, because this is a meocratic Project, and stuff. I did not came around yet to read what Jörg send me for reading to understand you guys more. Hope I manage later to day. But I would call the 5.0.0 Version Sun. Which is also a great Wordgame for something that has been moonshoted and if you look at the history of OO. As Splash I would suggest the Logo with a sun corona. This would be sooooo super cool. I would also pledge some money here for an artist, if the Community agrees. Haha!

Any real reason to name it 4.2.0 ?

Two years of miscellaneous changes and fixes, a radically
improved build system, unit tests at build time, updates of a
lot of libraries, support for new languages, new
translations, new dictionaries... if this is not 4.2.0 it
should be named 5.0.

That was kind of my thoughts... or maybe call it 4.5.0

The idea is to represent the "re-charged" AOO project with
a meaningful change in version.

OK, an idea which I understand.

But one could, in this context, not to think about a completely different way of

What if we took us Ubuntu as an example?

Ubuntu 4.16 is called "Xenial Xerus" and AOO 4.2 or 4.5 or 5.0 (and so on) might
be called "Lively Phoenix"? (just an example)

as an addition to the numbering schema this could work. Then we can give the release a special touch/meaning/expression or whatever is best for the respective release time frame.

Or you choose a more formal type of label them.
OK, "AOO XP" would probably not so great, but what would be, for example, with
"AOO NE" (for new experience)?

From the view point of a normal user I find it confusing as there is no comparsion pattern and you don't know what was first and was next.

I think that the reason that Microsoft has come back to numbers for the versioning schema. I don't see any need to go their way, make the same experience and come back to the numbers.

So, please no version numbering with words/text only.
