While working with the beta version of LibreOffice 4.1 it strikes me that since 3.6 so much has been improved in the interface. It's a good time to mention some of those.
Some time ago already the fat, overdone old borders from the past had been gone and now I see more and more dialogs that become more elegant, prettier to work with. Some screen shots, old and new.
So offering the same, uncluttered features, but better to work with.
A nice improvement too is that the list Apply Styles give a good preview of the font of the styles.
Completely new in 4.1 is a button that easily toggles comments in the margin on and off.
Mostly the already mentioned work on the dialogs is important for the future steps of LibreOffice in a newer interface and onto new devises.
As a colorful finisher, I love to mention the new default colors that are shipped.
(And I guess I should write some more about the new that 4.1. will offer soon...)
