This is the list of features and enhancements, which are integrated in DEV300 code line since after the split for OOo 3.2. All the listed issues are announced in the release notes for the developer snapshots since DEV300m61. This list is more technically orientated and isn't a release note. This list could and should be used for testing and checking the new features in general or for translation purposes.

If you are interested when this code line will be split into the release of OOo 3.3, please take a look at the OOo 3.3 release schedule.

This page is still in progress and isn't final for the next release!

Component : API

Component : Chart

  • 78934, 91035, 103778, 109594, 109744, 109767, 109771, 109781 :
    • Description : Several defaults have changed for charts:
      • By default charts are now created with a bigger size (9x16cm wide screen).
      • The default font size is bigger with 10pt also for data labels, axes labels and legend entries.
      • No black borders are drawn per default around data points and symbols.
      • Lines are a bit thinner for line charts.
      • The corner style for borders is 'Rounded' now.
      • 3D charts are created with realistic look (smooth shading and no borders).
      • The default lights have changed together with the default geometry to make things brighter. Pyramids have got a new geometry and now are rotated with the flat side to front.
      • The floor in 3D charts was made flat like the walls are.

Component : Database Access (dba)

  • 84012 : Base now supports database registrations configured as read-only
    • Description : Database registrations are normally maintained via Tools/Options/Databases. The registrations are stored in OpenOffice.org's configuration, which means it is also possible to deploy additional configuration fragments (e.g. via extensions) which contain additional registrations. If those configuration fragments are declared as read-only (by using the usual configuration mechanisms for this), then the UI now respects this, by disallowing modifications (editions, removal) of this registration entry.

  • 104329 : allow to overrule Base's heuristics for primary key support
    • Description : There's a new option "Supports primary keys" in the Advanced Settings of a database, which is to overrule Base's heuristics used to detect whether the database it connects to supports primary keys. This new option is available for database connections via ODBC, JDBC, and ADO.

Component : Framework

Component : Graphic System Layer (gsl)

Component : L10N

Component : QA

  • 104281 : testtool: Enable tabswitching on named dialog
    • Description : Old behaviour to switch tab pages on a dialog looks like: kontext active.setPage nameOfPage kontext "nameOfPage" This lead to problems in case another messagebox is also open - which is also of type 'active'. Now it is possible to name the dialog with: kontext "dialogName" dialogName.setPage nameOfPage kontext "nameOfPage" in addition to the old behaviour, where available.

Component : Spreadsheet

  • 92896 : Changed UI string when deleting sheets

In two Calc dialogs, this change has now been adapted ("Paste Special" and "Delete Contents"). Addionally, a few keyboard shortcuts have been changed due to the new strings.
