Type: Effort
State: open

After switching to the new threading-architecture, OOo still uses many thread related constructs, which are not needed anymore.


Find and remove unnecessary locking and other thread related constructs, e.g.

  • unnecessary mutexes,
  • unnecessary delegations into the "main" thread,
  • the Solar Mutex,
  • clipboard dedicated threads,
  • Drag&Drop dedicated threads.

(Solar Mutex, vcl::ThreadExecutor)
