Feature testing after UI and Feature freeze for OOo 2.1

Here all new features are listed, which have been integrated between 2.0.4 and 2.1 (current available build is src680_m188). All these issues have been announced in release notes for the build on OOo. Test cases specifications should be added to the feature issue. The links in the specifications are linked to Sun internal places, until it is defined, where Test case specification documents should be stored on OOo. Most test case specifications are added to the issues.

What's new ?

Component API :

  • 65548 : Access to the embedding API.
    • Description : The embedding API can now be accessed in the following ways: - in graphical layer applications the related XShape implementation can be asked for the property "EmbeddedObject" - in writer the related TextEmbeddedObject object implements now com::sun::star::document::XEmbeddedObjectSupplier2 interface that can be used to retrieve the embedded object.

    • Spec: --

Component DBA :

  • 42048 : for MSA databases, system tables are hidden
    • Description : When you access Microsoft Access databases (.mdb) in OpenOffice.org Base, you previously saw all system tables (named MSys). They only cluttered the table list, since you were not even able to view their data. Thus, those tables are now not visible anymore.
    • Feature Announcement : http://www.openoffice.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=allfeatures&msgNo=3080
    • Spec: --

  • 54504 : accessing database registrations from inside the data source browser
    • Description : With the integration of CWS dba30, it will be possible to access database registrations (as found in Tools|Options|OpenOffice.org Base|Databases) from inside the data source browser (the thingie which opens when you press F4 in a text document). For this, there's an entry "Database Registrations..." in the context menu of the left hand side tree control in the data source browser. Selecting it opens a dialog which contains exactly the same functionality as the above-mentioned options page.
    • Feature Announcement : http://www.openoffice.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=allfeatures&msgNo=3074
    • Spec: --

  • 67662 : "Vertical Alignment" property for radio buttons, check boxes, push buttons, fixed texts
    • Description : Certain form controls, namely radio buttons, check boxes, push buttons, and fixed texts, now support a property "Vert. Alignment", which controls the vertical alignment of the text on the control. Pretty similar to the normal "Alignment" property which controls the horizontal alignment, the options are "Default", "Top", "Middle", "Bottom", where "Default" effectively maps to one of the other three, depending on the concrete control type.
    • Feature Announcement : http://dba.openoffice.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=features&msgNo=196
    • Spec: --

Component Framework :

  • 69163 : Extension Version Handling
    • Description : Extensions are often improved over time. That is, publishers want to ship new versions of the same extension with added functionality and/or bug fixes. Adding a version field to .oxt extensions allows publishers to ship new versions, and allows OpenOffice.org to detect and handle the case that an extension installed by the user is an update of an existing extensions.
    • Feature Announcement : http://framework.openoffice.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=features&msgNo=239
    • Spec: Extension Version Handling

  • 69938 : new 'enable update check' page in first start wizard

Component Installation :

Component L10N (new locale data) :

Component Presentation :

Component SC (Spreadsheet) :

  • 63402 : Show meaningful error message if dBase export fails due to non-convertible characters
    • Description : If during export to the dBase file format the data to be exported contains characters that are not representable in the selected character encoding, the database drivers correctly refuse to write the record and an error message is displayed, which previously just was some "general I/O error encountered" message. The error message for such state of non-convertible characters is now: Cell $(ARG1) contains characters that are not representable in the selected target character set "$(ARG2)". where $(ARG1) is replaced with the cell address, e.g. B1, and $(ARG2) is replaced with the UI name of the character set, e.g. Cyrillic (DOS/OS2-866/Russian)

    • Spec: --

  • 64576 : Day name SortLists start with the first day of week according to the locale
    • Description : Upon first use of the Tools.Options.Calc.SortLists dialog, when nothing was stored in the configuration for this item yet, the list of day names is now initialized starting with the first day of week according to the configured locale. Previously, the list always started with Sunday for every locale. To have the list reinitialized with the new default after a program update, one may edit /user/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/Calc.xcu and remove the SortList node. No instance of OOo should be running during this time, of course.

    • Spec: --

  • 66439 : Improved export of spreadsheets to HTML
    • Description : CWS 'kendy11' improves export of Calc sheets to HTML a lot by using styles for the resulting tables. Until now, the look of the tables were just approximated which led to to wrong results in more complicated (=common) tables.
