Re: [tdf-discuss] LibreOffice implementer notes

Hi Jesper,

glad to see you here! :)

You wrote:
What is missing is clearly the delta between the implementation of
LibreOffice and ODF itself - in other words: what parts of ODF is not
implemented in LibreOffice? A classic example of this would be missing
support in LibreOffice of the chart type "gantt". Do you have any plan to
include information like this in the implementer's notes?

That's indeed useful information; it is though rather hard work to
tease it out - as large parts of the existing ODF implementation is
of course inherited from 10 years of OOo.

That said, if one does not start, it will never happen, so maybe you
could stick the white spots you know of, in LibO's ODF coverage,
into the wiki (or just answer here)? And we then incrementally
enhance that list.

And finally - the list of extensions to OOF seems incomplete. When
LibreOffice 3.6 was announced, a rather large list of new functions were
added to LibreOffice, and they do not seem to appear in OOF itself . The
list I saw can be found here : (sorry, I only have it
in Danish).

I hope the list is reasonably complete; not every new feature needs
an ODF extension. Do you have anything specific in mind, that we
might have missed?

All the best,

-- Thorsten
