Access to the embedding API. i65548   feature-info:
The embedding API can now be accessed in the following ways: - in graphical layer applications the related XShape implementation can be asked for the property "EmbeddedObject" - in writer the related TextEmbeddedObject object implements now com::sun::star::document::XEmbeddedObjectSupplier2 interface that can be used to retrieve the embedded object.
 
api
for MSA databases, system tables are hidden i42048   feature-info:
When you access Microsoft Access databases (.mdb) in OpenOffice.org Base, you previously saw all system tables (named MSys). They only cluttered the table list, since you were not even able to view their data. Thus, those tables are now not visible anymore.
 
dba
accessing database registrations from inside the data source browser i54504   feature-info:
With the integration of CWS dba30, it will be possible to access database registrations (as found in Tools|Options|OpenOffice.org Base|Databases) from inside the data source browser (the thingie which opens when you press F4 in a text document). For this, there's an entry "Database Registrations..." in the context menu of the left hand side tree control in the data source browser. Selecting it opens a dialog which contains exactly the same functionality as the above-mentioned options page.
 
dba
"Vertical Alignment" property for radio buttons, check boxes, push buttons, fixed texts i67662   feature-info:
Certain form controls, namely radio buttons, check boxes, push buttons, and fixed texts, now support a property "Vert. Alignment", which controls the vertical alignment of the text on the control. Pretty similar to the normal "Alignment" property which controls the horizontal alignment, the options are "Default", "Top", "Middle", "Bottom", where "Default" effectively maps to one of the other three, depending on the concrete control type.
 
dba
new icons for TEXT TABLEs in embedded HSQL databases i69696 Link CSV/Text files into HSQL databases In business processes, it's often necessary to exchange data between completely different applications. One common, widely-used, simple file-based format is CSV: text files containing multiple rows of homogenous data. frank.schoenheit@sun.com speclink dba
The iconified embedded objects are supported now by framework and file format. i68684 Supporting of Iconified Embedded Objects. In some competitor applications, that are able to contain an embedded document, it is possible to have an iconified object embedded in the document. The difference of the iconified object from a normal embedded object is that it has an icon as graphic replacement in the document and it can never be activated In-Place. Mikhail.Voitenko@sun.com speclink framework
Extension Version Handling i69163 Extension Version Handling Extensions are often improved over time. That is, publishers want to ship new versions of the same extension with added functionality and/or bug fixes. Adding a version field to .oxt extensions allows publishers to ship new versions, and allows OpenOffice.org to detect and handle the case that an extension installed by the user is an update of an existing extension. stephan.bergmann@sun.com speclink framework
new 'enable update check' page in first start wizard i69938 First Start-Up and User Data Migration Due to the change of the setup process in OpenOffice.org 2.0 / StarOffice 8, the migration of user settings can no longer be done as part of the setup. Furthermore, whoever wanted to migrate any settings had to do this by writing a special setup plugin. The migration process will now be done when the office is first started. It should be easy to define items that are to be migrated. dirk.voelzke@sun.com speclink framework
Software Update Notification i66949 Software Update Notification As many other open source projects, OpenOffice.org is evolving over time and frequent releases add functionality or resolve existing issues. The Software Update Notification helps users to keep their OpenOffice.org up to date without having to monitor certain websites. oliver.braun@sun.com speclink installation
multi monitor support for impress fullscreen slideshow i12719

christian.lippka@sun.com speclink presentation
Show meaningful error message if dBase export fails due to non-convertible characters i63402   feature-info:
If during export to the dBase file format the data to be exported contains characters that are not representable in the selected character encoding, the database drivers correctly refuse to write the record and an error message is displayed, which previously just was some "general I/O error encountered" message. The error message for such state of non-convertible characters is now: Cell $(ARG1) contains characters that are not representable in the selected target character set "$(ARG2)". where $(ARG1) is replaced with the cell address, e.g. B1, and $(ARG2) is replaced with the UI name of the character set, e.g. Cyrillic (DOS/OS2-866/Russian)
 
sc
Day name SortLists start with the first day of week according to the locale i64576   feature-info:
Upon first use of the Tools.Options.Calc.SortLists dialog, when nothing was stored in the configuration for this item yet, the list of day names is now initialized starting with the first day of week according to the configured locale. Previously, the list always started with Sunday for every locale. To have the list reinitialized with the new default after a program update, one may edit /user/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/Calc.xcu and remove the SortList node. No instance of OOo should be running during this time, of course.
 
sc
Improved export of spreadsheets to HTML i66439 kendy@openoffice.org speclink sc
SIT <-> EUR exchange rate for CONVERT function i69339   feature-info:
Slovenia will adopt the Euro on 2007-01-01, added it to the sl_SI locale data's available currencies and made it default. Calc's CONVERT() function now also knows the irreversible exchange rate of 239.64 SIT per EUR; reference: Council Regulation (EC) No 1086/2006 of 11 July 2006 amending Regulation (EC) No 2866/98, http://eur-lex.europa.eu/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?uri=OJ:L:2006:195:0001:0001:EN:PDF
 
sc
Package Manager Renaming i69568 Package Manager Renaming The term extension is more common than package or even package bundle. Therefore we should rename the Package Manager to Extension Manager and the term package to extension. This has to be done in the GUI as well as in the documentation and help system. joachim.lingner@sun.com speclink ui
Upgrade from Xalan 2.6.0 to Xalan 2.7.0 i62422   feature-info:
1) Upgrade from Xalan 2.6.0 to Xalan 2.7.0 shows the following features: Xalan-Java 2.6.0 contains the following functional enhancements, performance enhancements and bug fixes: * Support for JAXP 1.3, including new default error handling behaviour. * Support for XML 1.1 and Namespaces in XML 1.1. * Support for alternate BSF implementations. * Updates to the SQL extension and SQL samples to support the Apache Derby database. * New serializer.jar containing the Serializer component of Xalan-Java. * Minor restructuring of the source and binary distributions. * Various performance fixes. * Various memory leak fixes. * Upgrade to Xerces-J (2.7.1) and a new version of xml-commons (xml-commons-external-1.3.02). * ... (see: http://xml.apache.org/xalan-j/readme.html#done) 2) Furthermore, the debug output during XSLT was enhanced. When the Java system property 'XSLTransformer.statsfile' is set to the path of an output debug file (e.g. "-DXSLTransformer.statsfile=/usr/local/offices/xslt_debug.txt"). Now also the parameters provided to the transformation are given out. * * * These enhancements have been done by cmc@openoffice.org * * *
 
util
temporary AutoCorrection removed i60431   feature-info:
