I've done the first few chapters of the manual.  I'll send a tar of the  
new png files (about 2MB) directly to Christian.

Some potential issues:
- some of the screens have different sort orders.  I assume this is due  
to configuration and is not important
- the institution view no longer shows the number of transactions.  I  
assume this is a design decision, not a bug.
- capturing the menus, different selections are grayed out.  I assume  
this is mainly due to design changes, and is not important for the  
- the loan account wizard (accwiz8.2.png) shows the interest rate with  
no decimal places.  I don't know if this is a configuration issue or  
design change.  (9.00 shows as just 9)
- the new account wizard summary (accwiz9.png) does not show the parent  
institution, the old version did.  I assume this is a design change.
- accwiz3.png, accwiz4.png, and accwiz5.png seem not to be used anywhere
- In many of the pictures, the name of the open file is in the title  
bar.  The sample I'm using is RobsSampleKMyMoneyDataFile.kmy.  Would it  
be worth using a shorter name, or is this OK?
- many of the details (categories, accounts, ... both names and  
content) are different between Robs file and the old pictures.  I  
assume none of this is important, as long as the new picture shows what  
is being discussed at that point in the manual.

- the first picture in the next chapter (categories) is very different  
- it has a much shorter list of categories than the sample file I'm  
using.  I'm not sure if this matters or not - but it would be nice (but  
not realistic?) to be able to show all categories on the single screen  
for the manual.  Is it worth creating a new file (same name,  different  
directory) with an abbreviated list of categories?

Enough for now - I'll continue with this later.  (Is this something to  
discuss during the ICR meeting Thursday, or is the agenda sufficiently  
full already?)
