And what about old information (about 3.3)? They will be removed or there will be any new section (tab) "History"? What about people upgrading from 3.2 to 3.4? They should see news related to 3.3 and 3.4?

comment:2 jane2 years ago

  • Keywords ui-feedback removed

Yes, we need to update it before RC1, since that is string freeze. We'll also update Credits, but that happens on .org.

I think we agreed last cycle that the only time a 'history' would come into play was within a major release cycle (3.3.1 and 3.3, for example).

@ocean90: The tag I make sure to check is ux-feedback (it's in the dropdown menu), vs ui-feedback.

comment:9 scribu2 years ago

Weren't there more i18n changes besides the string loading?

comment:10 follow-ups: pavelevap2 years ago

I think that "History" page would be really helpfull. Many users update their versions once a year and they would like to read what is new (and not only in the latest version). Or there should be any hook to enable returning back older "About" pages with the help of custom plugin?

BTW: Now, there is message that there were 12 bugs fixed in WordPress 3.3.2. Is it right? I found only 2 bugs in Trac...

comment:12 pavelevap2 years ago

Yes, but these commits are mostly related to part "some security issues"? I found only 3 or 4 fixed bugs...

comment:13 nacin2 years ago

12 total bugs were fixed (according to my napkin math at the time). That included some security issues.

comment:14 pavelevap2 years ago

:-) I thought that we differ security and other bugs. Also our localization was made in sense of "security" + "other" bugs, so "some" security problems + several (4) bugs = 12 issues.

"... addressed some security issues and fixed 12 bugs"

This sentence suggests that there are some security issues + other bugs, but it was probably only our misunderstanding...

In 3.3.1 it were 1 security issues and 15 fixed bugs, I guess...

This is not behavior we should encourage, period. A link to a Codex page that lists out previous versions would be more appropriate. About the current version is just that, about the current version. Not about all the versions since the last time you updated your software.

Sketch of 3.4 about screen layout

comment:16 jane2 years ago

Having Chelsea make screenshots for About screen, gave sketch of layout (attached here) to go with new text. She'll do CSS patch as well if Ozz or other likely candidate isn't available.

Simpler layout for the about screen (still needs text), props chexee, see #20423

comment:21 azaozz2 years ago

The above patch scales images with max-width: ...%, this can be changed to @media rules instead.

Text for about page

comment:23 jane2 years ago

cc @azaozz: Uploaded text file for about screen text. Needs appropriate link to Codex for describing theme support for flex headers (or can remove reference to theme support). Should we ditch the mobile section? I think that stuff might be better in the announcement post.

comment:24 follow-up: ocean902 years ago

Note:

Look for the Customize button on the Themes screen.

wp.com has a button, here we have only a link.

Right you are modify at will. Main point is to call out that the word there is Customize vs Live Preview.

about.php text. Props jane. see #20423

comment:27 kobenland2 years ago

After [20843], is it too early to make them strings translatable again?

In [20847]:

About screen: make the text translatable again and escape <img src=admin_url(), see #20423

comment:29 dd322 years ago

There's a few cases of --- in that text, Perhaps we should change those to a ndash (or mdash?) asap before translators get to work :)

comment:30 nacin2 years ago

Use mdash. see #20423.
