As we approach 3.6 final, we need to start thinking about the About page for the release. What should go on it? Shout out your ideas.

At this point, as long as there’s a link to download 3.6, I don’t care if the entire page is collages of cartoon giraffes!
Maybe style the page with the Twenty Thirteen fonts to give it some character. That could be a cool thing to do for every year’s major release — style that version’s page like the default theme for that year.
typography and html demonstration… li’s, ol’s, blockquote, h1-6, code blocks, etc etc
The obvious things: Updated Revisions, updated Menus, etc.
Emphasis on how the writing experience in WordPress has been improved, particularly with Autosave which is an awesome new feature but may not be entirely obvious.
Also worth talking about post locking which is great for multi-author blogs, & improvements to revisions.
Is there any way translations can use their own set of (translated) screen captures?
How about including the “Introducing 3.6″ video?
closed the wrong browser tab the other day while editing a post, came back to the post edit page and restored from the browser backup. BOOM! no lost work. wow! that’s amazing!
What I’m most excited about for 3.6 and I would like to see in the about page would be some instructions on how to use the new, awesome built-in audio and video players.
If it wouldn’t cause too much confusion, I’d also like a section on the page telling me where to get the Post UI Plugin.
Updated menus, revisions, new theme.
Links to useful codex pages that have to do with the use of new or different functions / features. Maybe some information on twenty thirteen.
