comment Nice scientific pictures show off
Sorry, but still unclear what "related to science" means. Does this include "school book illustrations"? Maybe you could give some counter-examples? For instance, I would consider rolling of π or the transformer as well as many of the geometry figures as "school book" illustrations. It's not that I don't like them – I just would like to understand the scope of the question.

comment Nice scientific pictures show off
Looking at all the answers: Nice pictures and animations, but only very few of them appear "scientific" (as opposed to "school book" illustrations). Could you elaborate a bit more on your definition of "scientific"?

comment How can I highlight some lines from source code?
@JoachimBreitner: I have tried a couple of things, but no idea yet. It works for other options, so I guess it is the pin/label-specific parser that somehow breaks it.

If that is the purpose, this is beautifully simple and elegant :-)

comment What's the status of beamer's development?
@JosephWright I would really appreciate if you could "outline some things". The question might be to broad, but an answer from the maintainer on what is planned (or not) regarding future releases would nevertheless be very welcome!

comment Tikz: Problem using “of” on subsequent Beamer frames
The \usetikzlibrary part should go into the preamble and not been executed twice. It loads an external package that may well define global symbols, hence the clash.

comment Packages for writing Letter
@bersch: Your links don't work for me, guess they need a cookie only available on your machine. Nevertheless, regarding layout and everything else provided by the class DIN 676 is still fully compatible with DIN 5008.

comment Packages for writing Letter
BTW: DIN 1338 specifies mathematical typesetting ("Formelsatz"),so you probably mean DIN 676a and 676b, respectively.

Have you tried the valign=T and valign=t options? See §4.6 of the adjustbox manual.

comment Relative overlay specification in beamer?
Great answer, Joseph! I am fascinated (and a bit shocked...) how much I can still learn about this after all those years of using it intensively.

comment Listings: text highlighting based on prefix
+1: Neat trick to use a space (\ ) as terminating delimiter!

comment How to overlay tikz matrix in beamer?
Take a look at the approach described here and use the visible on<> style to always draw all elements, but hide those that should not yet be visible.

comment usage of \only with counter, pdfcomment and beamer class
I have found a small glitch, though: If one reduces the number of slides, \thelastslideofframe still contains the old value on the next pdflatex run. In this run, we insert content (the PDF comment) with \only<\thelastslideofframe>, so that after this run the number of slides is again the original value of \thelastslideofframe. Solution/Workaround: Delete the .nav auxiliary file.
