Hi Fernand,

Wat kind of extensions ? (...)

The new extension is an accessibility checker for ODT documents. This is a pure Java-based extension that uses a taskpanel for its UI. We plan to submit it to the LibreOffice core once we have received feedback and possibly made some changes. (I know that LibreOffice wants to decrease its dependence on Java, but we are not C++ developers...)

The extensions that are being updated are odt2daisy and odt2braille. They use mostly Java; some external libraries are in C/C++. They are both available on SourceForge. odt2daisy has also been added to the LibreOffice extensions site; odt2braille will also be added there.

Best regards,
