 === About Beamer ===
 
-beamer is a LaTeX class for creating presentations that are held using a projector, but it can also be used to create transparency slides. Preparing presentations with beamer is different from preparing them with WYSWYG programs like OpenOffice.org's Impress, Apple's Keynote, or KOffice's KPresenter. A beamer presentation is created like any other LaTeX document: It has a preamble and a body, the body contains \sections and \subsections, the different slides (called frames in beamer) are put in environments, they are structured using itemize and enumerate environments, and so on. The obvious disadvantage of this approach is that you have to know LaTeX in order to use beamer. The advantage is that if you know LaTeX, you can use your knowledge of LaTeX also when creating a presentation, not only when writing papers.

 === Main Features ===
 
-The list of features supported by beamer is quite long (unfortunately, so is presumably the list of bugs supported by beamer). The most important features, in our opinion, are:
-* You can use beamer both with pdflatex and latex+dvips.
+The list of features supported by Beamer is quite long (unfortunately, so is presumably the list of bugs supported by Beamer). The most important features, in our opinion, are:
+* You can use Beamer both with pdflatex and latex+dvips.
 * The standard commands of LaTeX still work. A \tableofcontents will still create a table of contents, \section is still used to create structure, and itemize still creates a list.
 * You can easily create overlays and dynamic effects.
 * Themes allow you to change the appearance of your presentation to suit you purposes.
 
 === Development ===
 
-This version of beamer is a continuation of the work done by Till Tantau, with some new features, bugfixes and code cleanups. The main drive behind this is improving compatibility with modern LaTeX packages and adding frequently requested new features.

 This code is mostly developed when we (Vedran and Joseph) have free time to do it. We care about every bug reported, even if we don't triage it right away. If you want to be notified when a change occurs, become a follower of this project.
 
-This repository currently holds a development version of beamer that has been tested, to an extent, but it can still break in weird ways and produce different results from older versions. We treat those as bugs, and would like to hear about them.

-Patches are also very welcome. This also includes dozens of beamer patches scattered around the Internet, some of which were already merged; if you find any of them usable, please report an issue that it fixes and attach it. You can do so even if you are not the author of the patch.

 [extensions]
Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
