Description

We'll be making a few changes to the What's New Page for Beta 7, including a new illustration. 

I will add new copy, new videos and the illustration as soon as I have them.
Made a copy of the 4.0b6 pages for 4.0b7 in trunk in r74810 (whatsnew, firstrun, and release notes pages).

I have copy! Will add stuff to the features page on Monday!

Thanks!

main blurb:

Firefox 4 now includes major performance enhancements, including our brand new JaegerMonkey JavaScript engine. From faster start up times and graphics rendering to improved page load speed, you'll notice the difference instantly. Watch the video to learn more.

lower blurbs:

3D on the Web: 
WebGL brings 3D graphics to Firefox, opening the door for developers to create vivid games and new kinds of visualizations and experiences for the Web. Watch the video. 

Beautiful Fonts: 
Firefox 4's OpenType font features allow type designers and developers to create amazing and beautiful web sites together. Advanced font features include control over ligatures, kerning, alternative characters, small and large caps variants, and more! 

Upgrading Forms: 
Firefox 4 makes forms both beautiful and super-easy to implement. With features like new list attributes enabling auto-complete and HTML5 form validation, the new Form API provides the tools to make annoying form implementation development a thing of the past.

Actually, let's reorder--

3D on the web is now the 1st feature. Let's put JM in the 2nd slot.

Hi Stephen--

A few copy changes:

For the top section--
1) Lets make "3D on the Web" as big as the top title found on this version of the WN page: http://www-trunk.stage.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/4.0b4/whatsnew/
2) Lets take out "watch the video" from the body of the paragraph, but leave it under the video. 

For the bottom section:
1) There will be no video for JM, so you can take out the player and remove "watch the video" from the body of the paragraph. 
2) Please change JaegerMonkey title to "Performance that Matters"

John--

Mayumi was asking for a rewrite of the "Beautiful Fonts"--
Can you do some more of your copy-writing magic for that section?

Thanks!

A few more changes to go here besides adding the video of FOTN. That will happen after beta 7 code freeze. It will be a 10 min long screencast--talked to IT, and they said that shouldn't be an issue as long as its hosted on the CDN. 

1) We'd like to use the new font features on our WN page. Be cool to use open font stuff on all the headers of the page. Other thoughts, guys?
2) We need to add a bullet under the 3D blurb saying "Experience the demo for yourself --that should link to this: http://videos.mozilla.org/serv/mozhacks/flight-of-the-navigator/ 

Thanks!

Might be nice to do something with the features mentioned ("ligatures, kerning, alternate characters, small and large caps variants") for the "Fabulous Fonts" headline too. Something like the demos here could be cool: http://hacks.mozilla.org/2009/10/font-control-for-designers/

Note, though, that the MEgalopolis Extra font would add an additional 70Kb to the page - one we've been working hard to optimize.

Done in trunk in r598487.

Could do it in an onLoad() handler, maybe, and only show the ligatures on hover or in a lightbox or something to split out the load cost?

Arg. I'm stupid. I meant to file these on the features page, not this one. They would go at the "new ui" section and only Linux users would see it. I can add these screenshots to the other bug if you like.  Sorry for my insanity this week.

Copy Change:.
Beatiful Fonts to Fabulous Fonts and this is the copy that goes below: 

Firefox 4's OpenType font features gives designers and developers more control over a variety of font features--like kerning or ligatures--to create gorgeous websites.
"Beautiful Fonts" was already "Fabulous Fonts". Other text changed in r76949.

Thanks--should have the screencast tonight--will ask IT to upload to CDN because the screencast is about 10 minutes long and we need to have the whole thing.  I'll file a bug as soon as I get it.
The main feature section is not visible when JavaScript is disabled.

This is because of this CSS rule,

#sub-feature {
  opacity: 0;
}


I think this is meant to fade-in with JS.  That doesn't work very well for me, because the background image doesn't show up for half a second or so anyway, so the fade-in is barely noticeable, and definitely only if you're looking for it.

Should we just remove this fade-in?  Not sure how we can make it work for non-JS users, unless there is a CSS-only option for fade-in.

Is there a way that the fade is there for people who have js enabled and just appears if you don't?

Still waiting on the Graphic--in the meantime, what you can do is get everything ready for the graphic--

See http://intothefuzz.com/leetom/Firefox/Firefox4beta/betterbenchmarks_fx4b7_03.jpg

Please add a new box under Feature spotlight.  

The header should be: "Fasten your Seatbelts" with "Tests performed on a Dell Optiplex 760 (Intel Core2 Duo), Windows 7 Professional. "

and the text under the graphic should be 
"Firefox 4 now includes major performance enhancements, including our brand new JaegerMonkey JavaScript engine. From faster start up times and graphics rendering to improved page load speed, you'll notice the difference instantly."

It should flow across all three graphs.  Please remove the "Fasten your Seatbelts" that is in the "Under the hood section". There should not be a "New" marker next to the new section we created.

Please ignore. 

Also please change the spelling of JaegerMonkey to JägerMonkey.
