I’ll try to unwrap this present a little, looking beneath the shiny paper. What do I see: hundreds and hundreds of code commits, which talk about ‘clean up’, ‘rework’, ‘remove’, ‘easy hack’. Sounds like tech-talk to me. So how is this a great present to users?

I decided to talk to some developers, in an attempt to get an explanation about what all this work means – to mere mortal office-users like (probably) you and me Wink Simply: what improvements, in which areas, can we see now or in the long run, as result of all this hard work?

Below you find the result of my search.
