But please (I beg you!!), there should be no number in the artwork.

Back when the 4 → 5.0 artwork was first pushed, I argued that sticking a version number to it 1) gave it an expiration date, and 2) made little sense in an age where “evergreen” (i.e., continuously updated) software like Chrome, Firefox and, for that matter, LibreOffice (the only office suite in the world to release major versions twice a year), actually went the other route and de-emphasized version numbers. Italo et al. didn’t like my feedback, so the board ignored it, and that artwork was pushed forward.

Then in the 5.0 → 6.0 transition I re-voiced the argument, and then you, Heiko, heard it and shared it (thanks!). But then the final artwork contained a big “6”. I was disappointed but didn’t say anything.

On the risk of sounding like a broken record, this is the last time I post this feedback… I would like for our graphics to perdure in time and form a cohesive, strong brand, and not be tied to version numbers…

That being said, I loved Rizal’s concept: IMHO we should start from there.
