About window, correct look
Version: LibreOffice 126.96.36.199.alpha0+ (self-built master from today), Linux, x86-64.
The Help > About window currently looks rather bad. As both images in it are
SVG's, this might point to recent SVG reader regressions.
Notice the following:
+ The green are below the logo is noticeably smaller (NB: the missing "The
Document Foundation" text in the logo is not a bug, just the result of
comparing an official build to an inofficial one)
+ The background image's position seems to have moved up (actually, the white
canvas should not extend below the triangle motif)
+ The widths of the background image seems to be wrong

About window, current/wrong look
A correction: ^green are^green area
Confirmed using windows 8 with Version: 188.8.131.52.alpha0+
Build ID: 087a610fcd5c0c354a9ed6bfccd3451b667d62a3

Might be indeed SVG-related. (See http://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=2ea69ec976fa7bb681746c65807888853ce1b8ea )
I'll keep it on the MAB list for now. A "shifted about background" isn't worth to place on a MAB, but you could be possible right this is a more serious problem.
Thanks for reporting Stefan!
Could someone please point me to the svg file containing the triangles?
here you go, Christina:
FWIW I can confirm that reverting 2ea69ec976fa7bb681746c65807888853ce1b8ea makes it fit the window again, which isn't to say that the commit is wrong, perhaps we need to adapt the about box use of the svg in some way to make it fit right ?
width and height given in the svg aren't correctly used. It's on my ToDo list but I won't have time to have a closer look until I'm back from our holiday trip.
