Hi Paolo,

I like the idea, but it seems not so trivial to me.

Currently the tips are cpp source and images are part of the resources:


visual changelog items can be exported to rst or html, but currently on
one page. Some hacking will be needed to do such automatically.

Off course copying the text into the ccp file by hand is always an option...

Another option would be (when user is online) to deeplink to the website
with url's like:


and show those in the tips? This would make efficient use of current
changelogs (with drawback that in that page all entries are into one
page too...)

anyway: it's worth a feature request
