YaST Textmode: Display Release Notes

Feature state

openSUSE-11.2
Done

Description

In YaST ncurses UI, even if the screen is large (more than 100 characters), do not use more than 79/80 width for displaying the frame containing the release notes text.

Lines longer than 80 characters are hard to read.

I have discussed with Karl. The problem also exits for Qt. Therefore a change in YCP layout is necessary. I have attached a suggestion for a layout change in inst_release_notes.ycp. I have used `Empty and `HWeight to add a margin at the left and right side of the text. This approach works for Qt and ncurses. Karl agrees that a stretchable text (width changes depending on total size) is better than a fix width.

Thanks, Gabi!

Yes, at least, it looks better for normal use cases. The patch will probably improve the readability for most users.

what happened to this?

Nothing, it left to be evaluated by PrjMgr (just checked the code in SVN, patch is not applied).

However, applying the patch is trivial, provided it has been tested.
