Please help build a great visual changelog for 2.4

Tim Sutton-4
Hi all

Feature freeze is here and I would like to start compiling the visual changelog for QGIS 2.4.0 'Chugiak'.


Could I invite contributors and interested observers to highlight the cool new features that have come into QGIS in this release cycle on the above site. You need to log in to create an account and then start creating 'entries' for the 'version'. Please note that the software on that website is still very much a work in progress rather than a statement of perfection so please bear with the odd glitch you may encounter. 

For those who have asked before, yes we do intend to support a native QGIS domain for that site in the future, but currently the idea is for us to compile the changelog there and then it will be exported by RSS feed or RST export over to the live QGIS web site.

If you can't be bothered to actually use the site above, no problem, just mail me with a paragraph or two describing the new feature, and a nice screenshot (if possible) that shows it off. Please note there is a limit of 1 screenshot per feature (entry). Also don't worry of you are not a native english speaker, I am happy to edit any submissions into the Queen's english.

Regards

Tim

Is there a specific reason why there are entries listed in thumbnail
view http://changelog.linfiniti.com/qgis/version/2.4.0/thumbs/ but not
in list view http://changelog.linfiniti.com/qgis/version/2.4.0/ ?

Best wishes,
Anita

I have been through and updated all the entries - you should see them published at: http://changelog.linfiniti.com/qgis/version/2.4.0/

Thanks to all those that contributed. If anyone has additions please go ahead and add them and I will edit and publish.

Regards

Tim

also note that we are in the middle of pulling the atom feeds from Tim's
site and incorporate it in qgis.org:

http://qgis.org/en/site/forusers/visualchangelog20.html

There are some todo's :-) But after incorporating the image url's and
being able to fetch them and do some styling, it hopefully will look as
cool as Tim's site :-)

Richard Duivenvoorde
