keyboard shortcuts for task pane entries i72799   feature-info:
With the integration of CWS dba23ui, the entries in Base's task pane (the upper pane with items such as "Create a new table..." etc.) have accelerator shortcuts, i.e. can be accessed by pressing the Alt key (or whatever is the platform dependent accelerator key) plus the respective shortcut. The shortcuts are determined dynamically at runtime, and do not interfere with the accelerators for main menu and the left hand side category pane.

Support of inline matrix/array constants in formulas i32342   feature-info:
Calc now supports inline matrix/array constants in formulas. An inline array is surrounded by curly braces '{' and '}'. Elements can be each a number (including negatives), a logical constant (TRUE, FALSE) or a literal string. Non-constant expressions are not allowed. Arrays can be entered with one or more rows, and one or more columns. All rows must consist of the same number of elements, all columns must consist of the same number of elements, so that a two-dimensional array has no sparse elements. The column separator (separating elements in one row) is the ';' semicolon, the row separator is a '|' pipe symbol. They were chosen because the upcoming ODF formula specification uses these separators. Contrary to Excel, the separators are not UI-version and/or locale dependent. Arrays can not be nested. Import/export from/to Excel are implemented. Examples: ={1;2;3} An array with one row consisting of the three numbers 1, 2 and 3. ={1;2;3|4;5;6} An array with two rows and three values in each row. ={0;1;2|FALSE;TRUE;"two"} A mixed data array. =SIN({1;2;3}) Entered as a matrix formula delivers the result of three SIN calculations with the arguments 1, 2 respectively three. ={1;2|4;5;6} Invalid array, the first row misses an element. This results in Err:512 "Formula overflow". ={1;2+3} Invalid array, the second element is not a constant. This results in Err:512 "Formula overflow". ={1;2;{3;4;5}} Invalid array, nested arrays are not allowed. This results in Err:533 "Nested arrays are not supported". This is a new error condition relevant for translation.

Intro and about bitmap location changed, configure script extended i66426   feature-info:
To better support the creation of adapted OpenOffice.org installation sets we now support the following options with the configure script. intro-bitmaps [ --with-intro-bitmaps Prefer the specified intro bitmaps over the the default one. Can be more than one (separated by commas), the order means priority of fallback if the first does not exist (in the installed tree). Usage: --with-intro-bitmaps=/path/my_ooo_intro.bmp ],,) about-bitmaps [ --with-about-bitmaps Similarly to --with-intro-bitmaps, this allows specification of bitmaps for the About box. Usage: --with-about-bitmaps=/path/my_ooo_about.bmp ],,) vendor, [ --with-vendor Set vendor of the build. Usage: --with-vendor="John the Builder" ],,) The location of the intro and about bitmaps have changed in the following way: - "svx/res/oooabout.bmp" - "svx/res/ooointro.bmp" - "svx/res/brabout.bmp" - "svx/res/brintro.bmp" - "svx/res/soffice.bmp" - "svx/res/ofaabout.bmp" + "default_images/introabout/about.bmp" + "default_images/introabout/intro.bmp" + "ooo_custom_images/broffice/about.bmp" + "ooo_custom_images/broffice/intro.bmp" + "custom_images/so/introabout/about.bmp" + "custom_images/so/introabout/intro.bmp"
