For Windows 1.1.1 RC


Gordon Darling For Windows 1.1.1 RC is the open source project through which Sun Microsystems is
releasing the technology for the popular StarOffice productivity suite. It
is an international office suite that will run on all major platforms and
provide access to all functionality and data through open-component based
APIs and an XML-based file format. It establishes the necessary facilities
to make this open source technology available to the developer community.

format. Otherwise, we need to always copy/transform things around
and this slows UI down terribly

(default) for .doc formats or any other (e.g. "NATIVE") for OOo

- Only merge in new configuration data if we are switching locales
- Attempt to update an existing installation and let OOo merge user
*.xml files to new *xcu
- Drop XML::Twig parser as configuration files format is now
overkill to handle. Better user configimport tool to merge in new
config bits

- Make oo* wrapper scripts actually a link to real ooffice wrapper
- Updates to Source5 (wrapper-script):

the same since, well, probably OOo 1.0.0.

previous user psprint.conf available and the last section didn't

-* packages now depends on locale-* as an DrakX hack
- Don't forcibly Requires: as it works with the
right language package you want alone.

Help can work without. e.g. Having English help with only Russian UI
localization installed.
- Make hint about the help package to
install in <b> instead of ugly <tt> with some fonts.
- Merge with Red Hat releases:
- Start Xvfb in %{init_xdisplay}
- Set default document fonts to Nimbus Roman No9 L, Luxi Sans and
Luxi Mono instead of the non existant Thorndale
- Make sure New/Wizard menus and OfficeObjects are localized

* Wed Aug 28 2002 Gwenole Beauchesne <[email protected]> 1.0.1-5mdk

- Patch19: Make WM_CLASS property for ICCCM compliant, aka don't have
"VCLSalFrame" showing up in taskbar of KDE 3.0 (IZ #4830, CVS HEAD)
- Add Catalan localization:
- Source17: Catalan strings (Jesus Corrius, Jordi Mas)
- Patch25: Add Catalan localization as POSTAPP2TARGET
- Patch26: Various fixes/additions for Catalan support
- Patch27: Catalan is only implemented as ca-ES (Jesus Corrius)
- Source18: Add global ooffice configation file
- Updates to Source5 (wrapper-script):
- Define user work directory to $HOME
- Use XML::Twig to parse and generate XML code. That's cleaner, more
flexible but surely not the fastest way
- Handle global ooffice config in /etc/openoffice/openoffice.conf
and users' in ~/.oofficerc
- Automatically define font to use for user interface based on the
current locale. Overridden with UI_FONT config variable
- Possibly set UI font scaling based on current display resolution
(Jakub Jelinek, Red Hat). However, as this is not enabled by
default, you need to properly set FONT_SCALING first
- Define paper size to use based on the current locale, and provided
you don't have any printer configured yet. Otherwise, printerdrake
will still generate the right default values.

* Tue Aug 27 2002 Gwenole Beauchesne <[email protected]> 1.0.1-4mdk

- Fix BuildRequires: for xmlparse (Ian C. Sison)
- Patch17: Add POSTAPP<N>TARGET to be executed after APP targets are built
- Patch18: Add Czech localization as POSTAPP1TARGET
- Updates to Source5 (wrapper-script):
- Correctly set default language for documents. Aka, transmute user
Linguistic.xml, or create it if it doesn't exist yet
- Merge with Red Hat releases (5 new patches):
- Patch{20,21,24,26}: Add Czech localization
- Patch22: Fix language list for some languages
- Patch{40,41,42}: Add some patches from <>

* Mon Aug 26 2002 Gwenole Beauchesne <[email protected]> 1.0.1-3mdk

- Move localized help files to new* subpackages
- Add localized help files for Spanish, Italian, Swedish, German
- Make help/<lang> a real directory, possibly empty
- Patch16: Check that we have the necessary help files. The rationale
is if help/<lang>/err.html exists then, we have localized help data,
possibly not installed. Otherwise, we won't have localized help and
we try to fallback to English

* Fri Aug 23 2002 Gwenole Beauchesne <[email protected]> 1.0.1-2mdk

- Add C/J/K UI localization. Likewise for Danish, Greek, Turkish
- bzip2 helpcontent even if bigger than tgz. We don't want binaries in CVS
- Don't handle upgrade, from 1.0-Xmdk with links from help/$ISOCODE to
help/en, to 1.0.1-Ymdk where we sometimes have a real directory for
help/$ISOCODE. Language packages PreReq: = %{version}
UPDATE: That still doesn't work. As a workaround, you can update
with l10n-en first. Then, install proper l10n-*. That way works.
- Updates to Source13 (gen-langpack):
- Fix %description, don't redefine variables correctly set
- Map zh-{CN|TW} to zh. Aka. correctly Requires: the right locales-* package
- Updates to Source5 (wrapper-script):
- Fix silly typo introduced post-tests in versions file
regeneration. If you installed 1.0.1-1mdk, you'd have better luck
to rm -rf ~/.openoffice prior to rerunning "ooffice".
- Add current version tag if it does not exist already. This occurs
when you upgrade from 1.0 to 1.0.1 for example.
- If the user installation exists, then the versions file is likely
to exist too. Otherwise, if we (or the user) nuked it away, then
simply regenerate it.

- Initial Release

Bob Adkins

Emm, thanks for the heads up, but does anyone know what's new in this
release? A link to a changelog maybe?

Word is, don't mess with this release because the final is supposed to be
released next week.


Remove "kins" from address to reply.

Can't find a link on the main site. This is the complete changelog for
Mandrake OpenOffice 1.1-9mdk.i586.rpm



Many thanks.

Would be interested to know whether the inability to play audio or
video in OpenOffice Impress slideshows (either created by Impress or
imported from PowerPoint) has been fixed in this release.

If it's fixed, it should be mentioned in the release notes above.

Thanks, apparently not. Maybe the developers aren't aware of the
problem yet. Not too impressive!

Has it actually bee reported as a bug? If so, you should be able to track
progress on its resolution.

I don't know, as the only reason I've ever tried Open Office was to
use the slideshow with sound function of Impress. Maybe I'm just

OTOH, it seems inconceivable that power users who look to OpenOffice
as a full replacement for MS Office and PowerPoint would not quickly
notice that Impress is incapable of running a PP slideshow with
background audio. So if the bug hasn't been reported (my googling
found only one other posting about this problem), I would guess it's
because very few people have ever used Impress.

It's interesting that in Knoppix 3.3, the Impress menu items
Insert/Object/Sound and Insert/Object/Video are greyed out, while in
PCLinuxOS Beta 3 they are not. Initially I assumed this was some sort
of glitch in Knoppix, but after wasting several hours trying to make
the function work in PCLinuxOS, the Knoppix version of Impress seems
more of an enhancement.
