My 2 cents about the draft:

Other than that, it looks fine to me.

Many improvements to announcement on news.o.o should be pretty OK now. Got some feedback and review, would like to get more but it's not bad. Needs a nice picture... https://news.opensuse.org/?p=16841&preview=true

Talked to anditosan and victorhck about picture, perhaps they come up with something.

"System Tools" block seems haven't change between 12.3' release announcement. There have 3 items, I'm not sure we put second and third item again is good. Actually my concern is the first one, ie. "support for Bluetooth audio sources and virtual surround sound in PulseAudio 3", I thought we ship PulseAudio 4 with 13.1, no?

#12 Updated by ancorgs over 6 years ago

Since Maxlin urged me for a final version for the translators, I have edited the announcement with the following changes:

  • Added Ralf Flaxa quote
  • "System tools" part totally rewritten with more up to date information.
  • 13.1 screenshots for the "desktops" section. It still lacks up to date screenshots for "virtualization" and "development"
  • Using English quoting marks instead of the German ones. ;-)

So please everybody (specially Jos, of course) review.

I've uploaded 4 screenshots:

File:Kdevelop4_KDE_13.1.png|Kdevelop
File:Qtcreator_KDE_13.1.png|Qt Creator

about screenshot of SUSEStudio and postgresql, I think we can keep the old one, looks it haven't difference in 13.1.

I've made the same text changes in https://en.opensuse.org/Release_announcement already :)

#14 Updated by ancorgs over 6 years ago

Screenshots updated in news.o.o as well. Announcement looks ready. As soon as Jos said "shoot!", we will ping the translators. Any news from anditosan or victorhck about the image or will we use the current one?
