[wtp-dev] Please ready the New & Noteworthy for M2

It's time once again to put together the New and Noteworthy for our latest 
milestone.  The place holders for M2 are in the web site repository and 
you can browse the in-progress version at  .  As usual, if a 
project doesn't have anything written up when I go to update our news 
feed, I'll just comment out their link to it from the overview page. Given 
the rapid pace with which we've delivered 3.2.1 and now 3.2.2, I won't 
expect a great deal to be written up for M2.

To set your workspace up to edit your project's contents, Committers 
should connect to the web site CVS repository at and either check out the 
contents of the /www/webtools folder, or just the folder for this 
milestone at  /www/webtools/development/news/3.3M2.  Like the rest of our 
Indigo-ized web site, we use a PHP-based XSL transformation on the XML 
contents to generate our web pages.  The transform means we're not all 
editing individual web pages directly, helping us keep a consistent 
layout.   Opening the XML files locally in a web browser will allow you to 
see them in a rendered form, albeit without the Indigo styling.  The pages 
themselves are loosely organized around groups of projects, but that's 
always subject to being changed if Committers decide so.

So, for any new Committers, what goes into a New & Noteworthy?  Simply 
put: additions that users will see, and hopefully, be delighted with. 
Screenshots are a must .  Showing the diversity of the platforms we all 
work on is fine, but be mindful to crop images them so the final resultant 
page fits in the display resolutions our users would have.  API additions 
or changes, significant version number updates, and especially migration 
information should instead be recorded in a yet-to-be-created "New Help 
for Old Friends" document.  As always, if there are any questions, let me 

Thanks all,
