Will Joomla 1.0.12 include the new help screen structure?
It is hoped that the new structure may be included within the future release of 1.0.12.
However, there may be time constraints in achieving this as I was fairly late in arriving at the party with this project which does entail some additional and unplanned work for the Dev Team if they can manage to fit it in, but I certainly have no wish for 1.0.12/1.5 to be delayed for the Help Screens!! - not that I expect they would delay for this.
Those changes could affect too to the key references for remote access.
I was very mindful of this and I have made the changes in such a way that the majority (I haven't finished checking them all yet) of existing key references
are still linked to their original documents albeit that document titles will have been updated the actual Content subject still relates to the original topic.
There are some of the extraneous links that were already broken that I am unable to resolve but that is a separate and hopefully minor point.
The original release of the Help Screens within Joomla! 1.0.x was approx 50 pages there are now going to be more than 160! To avoid this being a major stumbling block I have been and will continue to be adding the Related Information
section - as shown by the current crop of completed documents - to each page. These show the links to associated processes/screens so that there is a direct thread between old and new Content as well as additional information resources where appropriate.
One of the key factors overall was however to ensure that the Help Screens for 1.0.x. that are available were completed and brought right up to date for 1.0.11 and subsequently for the hopefully soon to be released final 1.0.12.
If it is not possible to fully update all the Help Screen key references
the Content is still going to be available on the Help Portal and it is (hopefully) now available in a more intuitive layout. Certainly it will be more complete than it was before.
I hope this answers your questions/concerns,
