Good one! Maybe 'Snow Leonard', then? Sounds a bit geekier, which is right. ;)

I've been considering it more our "Snow Leopard". It's got a lot of backend 
cleanup, many smaller UI optimizations, a visual refresh, and the Python you already have 
won't work quite right. ;)

Plone 4:  The 'Stealthy Bliss Release' ?

I see it being akin to the updated Facebook iPhone App that finally respects 
ones 'block' settings, so one doesn't have to read through everyone's Farmville 
and Mafia updates ;)

Sometimes it's the little things that really matter to people.  Apple is king 
of marketing/emphasizing these.  I think the best way to highlight this is 
going to be through screencasts that we market, have a prominent link to from 
the home page, etc., so let them begin...

Scott asks a particular question; let me raise the general one:

Plone 4.0 is really a "sucks less" release. To me, it's awesome because I know that all the many 
"sucks less" improvements (not as slow, not as much memory use, more mainstream visual editor, no 
silly small/large folder distinction ...) will make huge improvements for integrators, developers and users. 
But, it's a marketing challenge to convey that to those outside our circle. "Plone 4: It's better at 
everything that matters"?

   "New default visual editor: TinyMCE"

   But why is that a benefit? What was wrong with the old editor?
   What problem is the new editor solving?

   Without explaining the benefit of TinyMCE, I'm not sure it's a
   selling point.

       A few of my favorites:

       Dramatic speed improvements -- see Hanno's charts. Both for
       page rendering and initial load.

       Python 2.6's improved memory management will decrease overall
       memory footprint

       New default visual editor: TinyMCE

       Images and binary blobs automatically stored in file system
       rather than ZODB, prevent database bloat.

       New default theme, Sunburst, provides a modern, minimalist,
       grid-based theme that's a better starting point for modern themes.

           Two years and a half ago, Jon Stahl wrote a great post
           blog named "8 Really Cool Things About Plone 3"[1]. There
           he wrote about new features coming with Plone 3.

           Considering there are just two weeks for World Plone Day
           2010 and Plone 4 is going to be the star of the event, i
           would like to ask you what are the features or things you
           would add in the "8 Really Cool things about Plone 4" list.

           You answer will help a lot making the great Plone 4 talk,
           every host *must* have :)

           Kind Regards
