Content of bootstrap.ini shifted to version.ini 124120 feature-info:
Because of too much different content in bootstraprc/bootstrap.ini this file had to be splitted in two different files to avoid patching problems. Originally the file contained for example the path to the user installations and on the other hand the very dynamic information about the product version. The second part is shifted in cws nativefixer18 into a file versionrc/version.ini, which has to be included into patches. The bootstrap file still contains the user installation patch and therefore must not be included into patches. Both files are located in the program directory. Example version.ini for Windows: [Version] buildid=680m127(Build:8949)[CWS:nativefixer18] ProductKey=StarOffice 8 ProductPatch= ProductCode={8A212CF3-D776-42C3-9D8A-F1BB430E0D8C} UpgradeCode={AB6F5675-07CD-4A5E-A5F1-1AC968C298D1} ProductMajor=680 ProductMinor=127 ProductBuildid=8949 AllLanguages=de MsiProductVersion=8.00.8949
not set
New nsis parameter 126357 feature-info:
One-File Silent Installation set, in which directories for the installation can be determined. This was introduced in cws sdkinstaller by expanding the nsis script template. The following parameters are now available: - /EXTRACTONLY=ON - /INSTALLLOCATION= - /POSTREMOVE=ON - /HELP=ON - /S (for silent installation) - /D (to determine nsis unpack directory) /EXTRACTONLY=ON unpacks only the installation set and does not install the product. /INSTALLLOCATION=... determines the Office installation directory. /POSTREMOVE=ON removes the installation set after the office is installed. /HELP=ON shows the list of parameters. /S for silent installation /D to determine the unpack directory /D has to be the last parameter (nsis policy)! It is possible to include spaces into the pathes, no quotes in command line required. Additionally the standard nsis parameter /S and /D are correctly interpreted now.

Changed Drag and Drop behaviour for external ole objects in Impress/Draw i54643 speclink presentation

Thai 't' Numberformat Modifier i53826 speclink sc
SHIFT+F5 shortcut for saved cursor in documents i33307 OOo 2.0 Writer documents open on the postion that makes most sense for the user. For authors this is the position where they left the document last time – for readers this is the first page. A new shortcut is introduced to jump to the last editing position anyhow. OOo 2.0.x Impress documents always open on the first slide. (It depends on the engineering effort if this will be implemented for OOo 2.0 or OOo 2.0.1). The same shortcut as in Writer will be implemented for the next minor-release thereafter. speclink ui

intptr sal_IntPtr, sal_uIntPtr are integer types designed to hold pointers so that any valid pointer can be converted to this type, and back to a pointer, without loss. This CWS introduces these types, and uses them on places where they are necessary for the 64bit machines. The changes in this CWS are extracted from ooo64bit02, Martin Kretzschmar's and my patches.
nativefixer19 Including new sub directory for packaging type in packaging process.
macosxgcc4 This child workspace integrates patches that are needed for to successfully compile with gcc4 on MacOSX

VCL declares sal_Int32 *pDXArray, but there are several places where it is used as if declared long *pDXArray. It is OK for 32bit architectures, but breaks for 64bit ones

This CWS fixes the occurances of long *pDXArray. The changes in this CWS are extracted from ooo64bit02; they do not depend on any 64bit stuff, so they could be merged soon.
