Event Timeline

Jdforrester-WMF moved this task from To Triage to TR1: Releases on the VisualEditor board.

Also find a name? That "new" wikitext editor will not remain new for ever.

@Pginer-WMF do you think you could come up with something for this? @Volker_E suggested you might be interested.

is the Beta Feature screenshot/logo for the visual editor, with which it should probably roughly agree (though I don't think we'll have both available except for a few edge wikis)?

Is there another task to fix the beta feature screenshots so they aren't based on a full skin redesign from a few years ago that never made it past the prototype phase?

(specifically: removing the non-existent right sidebar, and unified top/search bar)

No, but feel free.

I think we can use the most recognisable wikitext symbols to represent code. Here is an example of the concept next to the Visual Editor one:

If that works, I can create the final assets.

There are several refactorings we can do to beta feature icons such as adjust colors to the updated palette, and remove the right sidebar. The question is whether we want the new icon to keep the old style aspects for consistency and consider a separate process to review all icons, or we want to include the updates as we introduce new icons.

It makes me feel like reading bad words in a cartoon. :)

That works for me. Note that the screenshots are in SVG format and we'll need an RTL one too. :-)

Let's keep the current look and feel, and we'll do T144428: Change all beta feature screenshots so they aren't based on a full skin redesign from a few years ago that never made it past the prototype phase in the longer term.

Let me know if these work:

Looks great, thanks!
