Re: differences Saucy / previous versions


I like this idea. Create a new chapter (I'd call it Chapter 0, but that's
just the programmer in me)...call it "What's new in {version}". This new
chapter would increase the value of the UMP for those who are familiar with
the previous version and just want to see what's changed.

I wonder if finding the differences between...say...13.04 and 13.10...has
already been published somewhere. Would we need to maintain a separate

Hannie, I noticed the RESTART difference as well. And...if memory serve
(I'm not in front of Ubuntu right now), I think the last two picks on the
session indicator dropdown produced the same results...I want to say the
picks were "Restart" and "Power Off", but I could be wrong--but I think
both picks resulted in a window appearing with the options to either Power
Off or Restart.

Anyway, yes, I'll +1 this idea. May not be the best thing to introduce
presently in 13.10 just because of where we are in the writing process, but
it certainly should be entertained for 14.04.
