Bug Description

Coccinella should have a welcome screen with an integrated tip of the day feature. There should be a "Do not show this any more" option. Also, there should be an entry in the Info menu. Tips should be translatable.

PS: I can write the tips.

Early feedback:
* Replace /Do not show this any more/Show tips on startup/
* Also add the option "Show tips on startup
* Replace /Tip of the day/Useful tips/
* Replace /Cancel/Ok/
* Add navigation buttons for the tips
* Add support for clickable URLs inside the tip texts (to add a link to a page on the website with more information)
* Show the new Coccinella icon somewhere: on the left/right, or maybe in the background as a watermark
* Disable this feature for 0.96.4 and enable it after this release (in that way we have plenty of time to create more tips, improve the quality of tips, and have multiple high-quality translations)
* Maybe use the same dialog _layout_ for the update check dialog?
* Add support for lists, italic text, bold text, etc (maybe use Tkhtml3 for this?: http://tkhtml.tcl.tk/

No background image in text widgets. Else I don't see a place for it. Where?

Need to remember this.

The update check is best to have separate. Besides, the totd comes
immediately,but
autoupdate is delayed.

Eventually this is the way to go, but right now I don't want to add
more complexity.

Can you use the new logo instead of the old one?

That's what I meant. Attached the canonical graphics I have.

So, the tip of the day is there now, I added a short patch to wrap the text at full words (svn revision 2766), not on characters, making the text a bit easier to read.

However, this now makes the one long tip longer than the 12 lines, but as you can click in the text and scroll down, this is still fine. That problem may already happen without my patch for other languages, I did not checked that.

We should take a look into adding a -yscrollcommand to the text widget after the release to add a scrollbar...
