Feature title TaskId Spec. title Spec. abstract Dev. owner Spec. link Component
System integration for extensions i69173 Extension System Integration Extensions shall be recognized on desktops by using particular icons. It also shall be possible to install an extension by double clicking on the respective file. Joachim Lingner (JL) speclink framework
Online Update for Extensions i70481 Online Update for Extensions Extensions are often improved over a period of time. That is, publishers ship new versions of the same extension with added functionality and/or bug fixes. Currently users must update their extensions manually, that is, find out where to get an update, get the update, remove old extensions, install the new extension. This feature will make updating easier. Users can run the update mechanism from the Extension Manager. A dialog will show available updates and the user will be able to choose which to install. Joachim Lingner (JL) speclink framework
Localization of UNO Dialogs i71400 Translation Inside Dialog IDE Localization of software products is very important for a higher acceptance of the software. Therefore the OpenOffice.org (OOo) Dialog IDE will be extended to handle translation of GUIs build with the internal dialog IDE. New languages for a dialog can be created and switched on the fly by using the new Translation toolbar. Frank Loehmann (FL) speclink framework

When OOo generates Universally Unique Identifiers (UUIDs, see ) via rtl_createUuid, it no longer creates Version 1 UUIDs (that contain MAC addresses and timestamps), but rather Version 4 UUIDs (that only contain random bits).

Ordinal suffix in AutoFill i47233   feature-info:
When working in an English language locale, AutoFill now recognizes an ordinal suffix and adjusts cell content to be created accordingly. For example, if the cell content was the string "1st", dragging the handle results in cells 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, ... If the original cell was an "edit cell" (formatted with in-cell attributes), for example because the AutoCorrection option "Replace 1st... with 1^st..." was enabled when entering "1st", the ordinal suffix will have the superscript attribute.
