Humanized changelog and news after a dist-upgrade
Hi, i'm an Ubuntu user and noticed that you are working on a new upgrade
(dist-upgrade) meaning that automates the upgrading to a new release. I
had some idea that you might find useful, so here it is.
On windows systems, after installing/
booting a window appears, showing the release notes, new improvements,
etc. I think that would be useful for Ubuntu because it follows Gnome
releases, and after every new release there are some interesting news.
For example, Gnome 2.12 has little changes and improvements over 2.10,
Breezy will have more system tools and programs than Hoary, etc. So why
not show a little window with two or three buttons, allowing the user to
read a simple page (HTML or something, like Davyd's
that couldn't before. Something like a humanized changelog.
[Michael replied: We are working in this direction by having a new feature called
UpgradeHooks  in place. Applications can put little notes on when they
are installed and show text and (optional) a script. This could be
used to show a complex changelog as well by just starting firefox and
showing the notes.]
