non-pro: OSL assertions now appearing the same way as TOOLS-assertions i52747   feature-info:
For quite some time now, OOo has two different diagnostics systems: OSL-based and TOOLS-based assertions. It's up to the developer of some piece of code which ones s/he uses. Failed TOOLS assertions usually are reported in a modal message box, but can be re-routed to other channels in the "VCL Debug Options" dialog (opened by pressing Ctrl-Alt-Shift-D). This dialog also offers some more options how to handle those assertions, for instance filtering. Failed OSL assertions are reported in a modal message box on Windows, and on the console on Linux. They cannot be re-routed or filtered at all, only globally disabled. Once the CWS gslpatches07 is integrated, OSL assertions can be captured by the TOOLS-based system, too. That is, OSL assertions then behave exactly the same way as TOOLS-based assertions. This behaviour can be switched off in the VCL Debug Options dialog, which contains a new check box labeled "Reroute osl debug messages", and is ON by default. All of the above of course only applies to non-product builds of
non-pro: dbgsv.ini now human-readable i52821   feature-info:
The "dbgsv.ini" file, which stores the debugging options of non-product builds (i.e. the settings made in the "VCL Debug Options" dialog), has formerly been stored in some binary format (basically, a memory dump of some internal structures). With the integration of CWS gslpatches07, this file is a human-readable INI file.
Page Preview can be closed with Escape key i46976   feature-info:
The Page preview of the Spreadsheet application can be closed using the Esc-key.
idlc: no unsinged types as type arguments of instantiated polymorphic struct types i62339   feature-info:
Until now, only unsigned integer types (i.e., UNSIGNED SHORT, UNSIGNED LONG, and UNSIGNED HYPER) were forbidden as type argumetns of instantiated polymorphic struct types in UNO (and idlc only generated errors for those cases). It was an oversight to not also forbid any unsigned types (i.e., also any sequence types that have unsigned component types). This has been fixed now in , and idlc has been changed to also generate errors in the previously missing cases.
Removed Tools->Options->View: restore "Editing view" i53104 speclink ui
Page Preview can be closed with Escape key i35777   feature-info:
The Page preview of the Writer application can be closed using the Esc-key.

Integrated Child Workspaces

jsc3 used for SDK OOo2.0.3 bugs and enhancements/imrprovements m160
jaxpapi Remove sun java parser.jar and jaxp.jar in favour of xercesImpl.jar and xml-apis.jar which provide duplicate functionality without being hampered by problematic licences. Requires using final jaxp api instead of sun specific sun.* implementation details. Build-time only as parser.jar and jaxp.jar are not packaged into OOo. m160
