This was over a month ago. There hasn't been a new OOo build since
Dev300m106 back in April 4th and 3.4 Beta in April 11th...
Does this mean that no new code has been released either?
I am asking this question because I am still hoping that the IAccessible2
implementation that IBM donated to Oracle last year and that Oracle was
integrating and testing, will still get released somehow. IBM cannot say
yet whether they would do the same exercise again if the IAccessible2
implementation does not get released (maybe they are also waiting for more
announcements from Oracle at the end of this month). I have reasons to hope
(I am not sure if I can disclose why) that the IAccessible2 implementation
will be made available; LibreOffice could then access it too. The
IAccessible2 implementation is a considerable piece of work, without which
OpenOffice.org (and LibreOffice) remains poorly accessible to screen reader
users on MS Windows.
What do they mean by "handing it back"? Are they giving up on the
My contacts at Oracle have not made any statements about that. I am
waiting for another press release.
Can someone from TDF shed some light?
