Hi all,

sometimes, trying to help other users, I like to give them the reference
where to find in the help about what are they looking for, etc.?. And always
I can, I recommended to have a quick read of the help to know what is there,
specially with new user.

But with more enhancements introduced, I begun to find that this is no
possible, because the help is not updated.

Why is I have done an analysis about what enhancements, detailed in 4.0 New
Features page
(https://www.libreoffice.org/download/4-0-new-features-and-fixes), have been
updated in the help. And unfortunately, the results are what I was afraid.

The analysis is tabulate in the joined spreadsheet.
IMVHO, the enhancements, should not be in final release without the help
properly updated.
Because if the help is not the reference, where is the reference?.
How can no one to know what is there?.
Is it right? we all trying to know how the new announced enhancements works.
How can we know when there is a bug or is the expected result?
How can we do an QA test without know in detail the enhancement?.
Why not mandatory to introduce the enhancements, update the help?
So again IMVHO what is not in help is like it does not exist in program.

I think I have read time ago in the net, about how difficult is maintain the
help system. But if this is not done then I think we are going to nowhere.

I hope some progress can be done here.

Miguel Ángel.
