Re: [tdf-discuss] LibO document format: strict ODF or extended ODF?

I'll try to clarify my point of view.
Let's say that by the time ODF 1.2 will be out, every feature
currently supported from LibO will be in ODF specification too. That
would be simply great.
Will LibO 4.0/5.0 stay at ODF 1.2 until ODF 2.0 (or whatever
version) will be officially approved, becoming so the "Lingua
Franca" in exchanging documents for people and organizations or will
LibO try to implement more features that *may* be included in ODF
2.0, becoming so a technical cutting edge application?
They are two completely different visions of the project, I think.
Hi Gianluca, all,
soo - as a matter of fact, both LibO and OOo 3.3 will occasionally
write out files that'll only comply to the "extended" ODF 1.2
There are two major reasons for that:
a) ODF evolves somewhat slowly (when 1.2 gets out, 1.1 will be
almost 4 years old) - you cannot stop shipping features for 4
b) OASIS, for very good practical reasons, only wants to standardize
what has been successfully implemented (by at least three
independent products, even) - so out of necessity, you'll need
implementations of not-yet-standardized features, to actually
make those standardizable via OASIS.
So I guess moving on & extending ODF is a feature, not a bug - of
course, for those who need it, you want a "strict mode" (which we
