Official TDF Blog: Updates from events: Turkey, Taiwan and Japan

Today marks five years since The Document Foundation (TDF) was legally incorporated in Berlin, Germany. We want to celebrate this anniversary by highlighting some recent activities and events from our Native Language Projects. These communities have been instrumental to the growth of TDF and LibreOffice, and are one of our most important assets.

Turkey

The Turkish community recently attended the Academic Informatics Conference 2017 in Aksaray, from 8 to 10 of February, with several LibreOffice related activities.

A general presentation was done by Muhammet Kara and GĂśkhan GurbetoÄŸlu in the first session (first half of the first day).

In the second half of the first day, the attendees were introduced to the LibreOffice development environment, and the tools used in the process (Gerrit, Vim, Git‌). The attendees were walked through the process of joining the LibreOffice community, and building the LibreOffice source code for the first time.

Attendees who had relatively older computers were provided with SSH access to a 32-core machine, courtesy of TUBITAK ULAKBIM. The last session (first half of the second day) was held like a hackfest. Questions from attendees were answered by the speakers.

LibreOffice community members were pleased to see that the participants were eager to learn about the software, and together they established a WhatsApp group for further communication. A more detailed presentation about LibreOffice development activities in Turkey was given by GĂźlĹŸah KĂśse and Muhammet Kara on the last day (morning) of the conference.

Taiwan

The first LibreOffice QA Sprint in Taiwan – organized by Software Liberty Association Taiwan and supported by two professors of the Department of Computer Science and Engineer, National Cheng-Kung University: Professor Joseph Chung-Ping Young and Alvin Wen-Yu Su – was held in Tainan City on December 17, 2016. In this four-hour sprint the attendees found and reported many issues. Attendees were students, teachers, employees of enterprises and governments, LibreOffice developers and lecturers, and all four TDF members in Taiwan.

Early in the afternoon, a live video-session with Italo Vignoli, one of the core members of The Document Foundation, gave most of the attendees exposure to the international community for the first time.

Han Lu, a student in NCKU, summarized the issues found by attendees. After the summary, Franklin Weng explained how to report bugs on the LibreOffice Bugzilla. Also, Cheng-Chia Tseng introduced the Pootle translation platform for LibreOffice and gave some tips on how to translate LibreOffice.

Japan

LibreOffice Kaigi 2016.12, Japan’s annual LibreOffice conference, was organized in early December 2016 with great success! The word Kaigi is the Japanese word 䟚議, which means conference. The name means not only Japanese regional, but also Japanese users-specific.

Around 25 people gathered and enjoyed several talks (migration to Open Document Format in Taiwan, by Franklin Weng, LibreOffice/ODF and styles, maintaining Math and Japanese translation), along with a few lightning talks and a panel discussion.

LinuxQuestions Users Choose Their Favorite Distro: Slackware

ZDNet summarizes some of the surprises in this year's poll on LinuxQuestions, "one of the largest Linux groups with 550,000 member". An anonymous reader quotes their report: The winner for the most popular desktop distribution? Slackware...! Yes, one of the oldest of Linux distributions won with just over 16% of the vote. If that sounds a little odd, it is. On DistroWatch, a site that covers Linux distributions like paint, the top Linux desktop distros are Mint, Debian, Ubuntu, openSUSE, and Manjaro. Slackware comes in 28th place... With more than double the votes for any category, it appears there was vote-stuffing by Slackware fans... The mobile operating system race was a runaway for Android, with over 68% of the vote. Second place went to CyanogenMod, an Android clone, which recently went out of business... Linux users love to debate about desktop environments. KDE Plasma Desktop took first by a hair's breadth over the popular lightweight Xfce desktop. Other well-regarded desktop environments, such as Cinnamon and MATE, got surprisingly few votes. The once popular GNOME still hasn't recovered from the blowback from its disliked design change from GNOME 2 to GNOME 3. Firefox may struggle as a web browser in the larger world, but on Linux it's still popular. Firefox took first place with 51.7 percent of the vote. Chrome came in a distant second place, with the rest of the vote being divided between a multitude of obscure browsers. LibreOffice won a whopping 89.6% of the vote for "best office suite" -- and Vim beat Emacs.

The City Of Munich Now Wants To Abandon Linux And Switch Back to Windows

"The prestigious FOSS project replacing the entire city's administration IT with FOSS based systems, is about to be cancelled and decommissioned," writes long-time Slashdot reader Qbertino. TechRepublic reports: Politicians at open-source champion Munich will next week vote on whether to abandon Linux and return to Windows by 2021. The city authority, which made headlines for ditching Windows, will discuss proposals to replace the Linux-based OS used across the council with a Windows 10-based client. If the city leaders back the proposition it would be a notable U-turn by the council, which spent years migrating about 15,000 staff from Windows to LiMux, a custom version of the Ubuntu desktop OS, and only completed the move in 2013... The use of the open-source Thunderbird email client and LibreOffice suite across the council would also be phased out, in favor of using "market standard products" that offer the "highest possible compatibility" with external and internal software... The full council will vote on whether to back the plan next Wednesday. If all SPD and CSU councillors back the proposal put forward by their party officials, then this new proposal will pass, because the two parties hold the majority. The leader of the Munich Green Party says the city will lose "many millions of euros" if the change is implemented. The article also reports that Microsoft moved its German headquarters to Munich last year.

Andreas Mantke: Working On Localization Migration For ODFAuthors

I created a test environment for the migration of the ODFAuthors site to the current Plone version. I updated the test site to the latest version of Plone 4.3.x and am working on the migration of the localized folders and files inside the site now. They need a migration from the LinguaPlone settings to the new plone.app.multilingual. It seems there are some issues to solve and it could take me some time.

LibreOffice 5.3 Released, Touted As 'One of the Most Feature-Rich Releases' Ever

An anonymous reader shares a report: A new month, and a brand new version of open-source office suite LibreOffice is now available to download. And what a release it is. LibreOffice 5.3 introduces a number of key new features and continues work on improving the look and feel of the app across all major platforms. The Document Foundation describes LibreOffice 5.3 as "one of the most feature-rich releases in the history of the application." One of the headline features is called MUFFIN interface, a new toolbar design similar to the Microsoft Office Ribbon UI.

Andreas Mantke: Next Step For The Upgrade Of ODFAuthors

I’m currently working on the upgrade of the ODFAuthors website to the newest version of the Content Management System (CMS) Plone. I worked on the source code for the new environment during the last days. Today I created a new test buildout for the site on a virtual server. I run it with a copy of the current ODFAuthors website and updated it to the lastest version of Plone 4.3.x. This worked out smoothly. I’ll work on the change over from LinguaPlone to the new multilingual app during the next days. This is a step that had to be done before the upgrade to Plone 5.0.x could take place.

Users will be able to choose from several toolbar configurations including the "Notebook bar" which is similar to Microsoft Office's ribbon. According to TDF, "The MUFFIN (My User Friendly -- Flexible Interface) represents a new approach to UI design, based on the respect of user needs rather than on the imposition of a single UI to all users"

Miklos Vajna: Signing existing PDF files in LibreOffice

TL;DR: see above — it’s now possible signing existing PDF files and also verify those signatures in LibreOffice 5.3.

The problem

LibreOffice already made it possible to digitally sign PDF files as part of the PDF export, so in case you had e.g. ODF documents and exported them to PDF, optionally a single digital signature could be added as part of the export process. This is now much improved. First, thanks to the Dutch Ministry of Defense in cooperation with Nou&Off who made this work possible.

A user can already use an other application to verify that signature or sign an already existing PDF file. The idea is to allow doing these from inside LibreOffice, directly.

Results

As it can be seen above, now the Digital Signatures dialog not only works for ODF and OOXML files, but also for PDF files. If the file has been signed, then the dialog performs verifications of that signature. Signatures are also verified on opening any signed PDF file.

I’ve also extended the user interface a bit, so that signing an existing PDF file is easy, similarly how exporting to PDF is easier than exporting to a random other file format. There is now a new File → Digital signatures → Sign exiting PDF menu item to open a PDF file for signing:

When that happens the infobar has a dedicated button to open the Digital Signatures dialog, and also going into editing mode triggers a warning dialog, as going read-write is not needed to be able to sign a document:

And that’s basically it, after you open a PDF file in Draw, you can do the usual digital signature operations on the file, just like it already works for previously supported file formats.

Details

What follows is something you can probably skip if you’re a user — however if you’re a developer and you want to understand how the above is implemented, then read on. ;-)

PDF tokenizer

The signing feature in ODF/OOXML is implemented by working directly on the ZIP storage in xmlsecurity/. This means that in the PDF case it’s necessary to work on the PDF file directly, except that we had no such PDF tokenizer ready to be used.

Code under xmlsecurity/source/pdfio/ now is such a tokenizer that can extract info from PDF files and can also add incremental updates at the end of the file, this way we can make sure adding a signature to a file won’t loose existing content in the file. This is fundamentally different form the usual load-edit-save workflow, when we convert the file into a document model, and work on that.

Verification of signatures

Previously LO was only able to generate signatures, not verify them. I’ve implemented PDF signature verification using both NSS and CryptoAPI, so all Windows, Linux and macOS are covered. I have to admit that the initial verification was much easier with CryptoAPI. Until I hit corner-cases, I could use an API that’s well-documented and is higher level than NSS. (I don’t have to support different hash types explicitly, for example.)

When I added support for non-detached signatures, that changed the situation a bit:

 1 file changed, 15 insertions(+), 11 deletions(-)

was the NSS patch, and

 1 file changed, 104 insertions(+), 8 deletions(-)

was the CryptoAPI patch.

Signing existing files

Signing an existing file means tokenizing a document, figuring out how an incremental update should look like for that file, writing an incremental update that has a placeholder for the actual signature (a PKCS#7 blob, where the input is just the non-placeholder parts of the document as binary data), and finally filling in the placeholder with the actual signature.

For the last step, I could reuse code from the PDF export (modulo fixing bugs like tdf#99327). For the other steps, the tokenizer remembers the input offset / length for the given token, this way it’s relatively easy to create incremental updates. You can add new objects or update new objects in such an incremental update, and this source tracking feature allows copying even the unchanged parts of updated objects verbatim.

PDF 1.5+

Everything becomes a bit more complicated once I started to handle not only LO-generated PDF-1.4, but also newer PDF versions. I think this is important, as Adobe Acrobat creates PDF 1.6 by default today, which has a number of new features (I think all of them were actually introduced in PDF-1.5) that affects the tokenizer:

  • xref stream: instead of an ASCII xref table ("table of contents") at the end of the file, it’s now possible to write the binary equivalent of this as an xref stream. Because the binary version can describe more features we must also write an updated xref stream (and not an xref table) when the import already had an xref stream.

  • object streams: it’s now possible to write multiple objects inside the stream section of a single object in binary form. The tokenizer is necessary to be able to read these objects and also roundtripping (source tracking) should work not only with physical file offsets, but also inside such compressed streams where the offset is no longer just a number inside the input file. (It’s OK to write the updated objects outside object streams, still.)

  • stream predictors: this is a concept from the PNG format, but also used in PDF when compressing the xref stream. See the spec for the gory details, but in short it’s not enough that instead of plaintext you have to deal with binary compressed data, you also have to filter the data before actually parsing the file offsets, and the filter is defined not in terms of object IDs and file offsets, but in terms of adjacent pixels, since it’s documented in the PNG spec. :-) (To be close to the Adobe output, we also apply such predictors when writing compressed xref streams.)

User Interface

In addition to be UI changes already mentioned above, one more improvement I did is that now the Digital Signatures dialog has a new column to show the signature type. This is either XML-DSig (for ODF/OOXML) or PDF.

Testing

I’ve added an integration test in the existing CppunitTest_xmlsecurity_signing to have coverage for the small new code that calls into xmlsecurity/ from sfx2/ in case of PDF files. But fortunately because all other code in xmlsecurity/ was new, I could do unit testing in CppunitTest_xmlsecurity_pdfsigning for the rest of the features.

Needless to say that invoking the PDF tokenizer + signature creator/verifier directly is much quicker than loading a full PDF file into Draw, just to see the signature status. ;-)

Summary

If you want to try these out yourself, get a daily build and play with it! This work is part of both master or libreoffice-5-3, so those builds are of interest. Happy testing! :-)

Docxpresso API Core v3.0 Release Notes

Docxpresso API Core v3.0 Release Notes admindocxp Mon, 12/12/2016 - 09:11

We are happy to announce the launch of DOCXPRESSO API Core v3.0.

DOCXPRESSO v3.0 comes bundle with new features that will help you to generate beatiful business reports and general purpose document even easier than before.

Besides a bunch of minor improvements and bug fixes in the core functionality of the library, v3.0 incorporates new and useful methods and a full new subpackage ODF2HTML5 responsible for converting Office documents into W3C compliant HTML5 + CSS.

Templates

When introducing placeholder variables in a template using MS Word it may happen that they are internally torn apart by the MS Word editor, thus breaking the proper functioning of the replace method.

Although this problem can be circumvented by carefully rewriting the variable, we have introduced a new repairVariables method that eliminates the need to do so.

By running the repairVariables method on any Docxpresso template you will make sure that the integrity of the included variables is always preserved.

With version 3.0 we have also introduced partial support for .odp (the Open Document Format version of .pptx and .ppt files) so you can now replace placeholder variables, clone and remove chunks of contents in your "presentation" files.

ODF2HTML5

This new subpackage allows for the conversion of documents into HTML5 + CSS with native support for:

  • Nicely formatted text
  • Headings (numbered)
  • Tables
  • Links and bookmarks
  • Nested lists with sophisticated numberings
  • Images
  • Textboxes
  • Footnotes and endnotes
  • Headers and Footers
  • Tables of contents (TOCs)
  • Charts
  • Comments
  • Math equations
  • Drop caps
  • Office SmartArt and forms (partial)
  • Support for Right-To-Left languages
  • And much more...

Samples

We also have included in the downloadable package a samples folder with close to 100 scripts that illustrate the functionality of the library.

These samples are the perfect starting point to get you acquainted with Docxpresso functionality and they also can serve you as a basis to start building your own scripts.

New ODF testing method uncovers flaws in office suites

Press release

A graphic logo of the 2016 ODF Plugfest featuring some icons of the city of ParisOpenDoc Society held its 12th ODF Plugtest on 16 and 17 November 2017, hosted in Paris by the French Ministry of Finance and POSS. Delegates came from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, UK, Ukraine, Taiwan, The Netherlands, Luxemburg, United States and Belgium. They represented application vendors, standards bodies, governments, the European Commission and the European Parliament.

The ODF Plugfest aims to improve interoperability among applications that use the Open Document Format (ODF), which is an open standard created by OASIS that is supported by most productivity tools in the market today and is mandatory for use by governments throughout the world. It is also published as an international standard, as ISO/IEC 26300. This edition of the ODF Plugfest featured a new testing infrastructure for the creation and excution of ODF autotests, partly financed by the Dutch government. Prior to the plugfest, developers had already submitted a significant set of tests to the server. The ODF Plugfest focused on triaging these tests, running them, analysing their results, creating new tests, identifying additional features to be tested and improving the test methodology.

One of the tests revealed that a number of established office suites lose heading hierarchy when opening and saving a document in ODF format, due to flaws in the alignment of their own legacy formats and the ODF standard. Loss of hierarchical structure makes a document far less accessible to disabled users who rely upon assistive technologies such as reading software or braille outputs to navigate through documents. The uncovered flaw damages common functionality for all users, such as the generation of tables of content but also influences automated content classification and information retrieval.

The flaws discovered are a testament to the importance and effectiveness of the new testing methodology we have adopted, says Michiel Leenaars of OpenDoc Society. Losing document information which is so critical to people with disabilities should be considered a major shortcoming of any application. One key aspect of moving from vendor-specific legacy file formats to ODF as a global office standard is that we are able to uncover this kind of significant data loss. Now the three vendors involved can get to work and improve the implementation in their products.

The testers also found other issues, for example with the way that applications treat Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Vietnamese language with vertical writing, or how applications process colours in different and sometimes unexpected ways.

These results show that even digitally born documents are not safe for future generations as long as we don't modernise the tools we work with, says Jos van den Oever, co-chair of the ODF Technical Committee and member of the UNESCO Persist Technical Taskforce. Van den Oever, an expert on document formats employed by the Netherlands government, is the architect behind the new testing framework. The fact shows that we have to be careful which tools we adopt, if we care about our information in the long term. The fact that the visual appearance is consistent between the original documents and the damaged documents makes these particular flaws even more treacherous. Merely opening and saving in the wrong office application is enough to cause permanent damage to user documents, and the end user cannot actually see the difference.

For the second time this year, an Italian public administration is ending its use of open source office productivity software. A source in the IT department of the Emilia-Romagna region confirmed to the Open Source Observatory last week that the region will end its use of OpenOffice. The region will move to a cloud-based proprietary office solution, others say.

Nantes: Open source cuts off recurring charges

‘The longer you use open source, the more you save’

Switching to open source means the end of the periodic recurring charges from proprietary software vendors, says Eric Ficheux, change management specialist at Nantes Métropole, France’s 6th largest city. “The total cost of ownership of LibreOffice is far lower than of its proprietary predecessor”, he says.

Docxpresso PDF v1.0 Release Notes

Docxpresso PDF v1.0 Release Notes admindocxp Tue, 10/04/2016 - 17:07

We are proud to announce the launch of Docxpresso v1.0.

Docxpresso is a highly sophisticated library designed to facilitate the generation and deployment of documentation in a web server.

Docxpresso allows for the dynamical generation of PDF, Word, ODF and/or RTF files from virtually any data source,in any web platform infrastructure in a simple and cost-efficient way.

One may generate all kind of documentation from academic papers to business reports with a single tool in almost any conceivable format just by transforming HTML5 code or directly using its powerful public API.

The generated documents may contain:

  • Standard document components like, paragraphs, images, tables and list,
  • headers and footers.
  • footnotes and endnotes,
  • tables of contents,
  • 2D and 3D charts,
  • cross-references,
  • interactive forms (only PDF and ODF output formats),
  • etcetera.

Docxpresso may be used under different licenses that only differ in its scope of use but not functionality:

  • FREE, at no cost, for personal use,testing and development and charitable organizations (the last may apply for a free PRO license). The documentation generated with this type of license include a very discreet Docxpresso branding at the end of the document.
  • PRO, conceived for professional and commercial use it allows the generation of unlimited documents by unlimited editors in a single (web) server.
  • SaaS, for the integration within a web app with SaaS or PaaS architecture.
  • OEM, for the redistributionwithin third party software or bulk licensing.

Open Document Format

Open Document Format admindocxp Tue, 10/04/2016 - 17:07

Docxpresso is based internally in open standards, among others: HTML5, CSS and ODF (Open Document Format).
This is so because of a variety of reasons among which we would like to pinpoint:

  • interoperability,
  • ease of use,
  • Ample documentation,
  • and last but not least openness itself.

There is not much to say above HTML5 and CSS that you may not already know, but certainly not everyone is so familiar with the Open Document Format.

The Open Document format is an ISO standard (ISO/IEC 26300:2006) developed and maintained by OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards) and it was designed to be an open alternative to vendor based formats.

Open Document Format is supported by multiple government and public corporations and it is directly used by standard Office Suites like Apache open office or Libre Office among others.

The documents compliant with this format consist of a bunch of XML files bundled together within a zip file. This allows for a relatively simple algorithmic manipulation of their contents.

Docxpresso uses the DOM and XPath capabilities of PHP to generate and/or modified the ODF XML files and its ZipArchive extension (that belongs to the PHP5 core) to open or create the corresponding .odt file (the associated ODF file extension).

The Open Document files generated by the Docxpresso core package are later converted to other formats with the help of Libre or Open Office.

ODF is also directly supported by MS Office sine its 2007 (SP2) version so the generated documents can also be opened by MS Word (the .doc documents generated by Docxpresso are just .odt files in disguise).

Is Apache OpenOffice Finally On the Way Out?

Reader JImbob0i0 writes: After almost another year without a release and another major CVE leaving users vulnerable for that year the Chairman of the Project Management Committee has started public discussions on what it will entail to retire the project, following the Apache Board showing concern at the poor showing.It's been a long battle which would have been avoided if Oracle had not been so petty. Did this behaviour actually help get momentum in the community underway though? What ifs are always hard to properly answer. Hopefully this long drawn out death rattle will finally come to a close and the wounds with LibreOffice can heal with the last few contributors to AOO joining the rest of the community.

KDE Edition Beta Released For Linux Mint 18 'Sarah'

An anonymous Slashdot reader quotes a report from fossBytes: Linux Mint 18 'Sarah' KDE Edition Beta is now available for download and testing. This release is based on the long-term supported Linux 4.4 kernel and KDE Plasma 5.6 desktop environment. The final release of this widely popular distro is expected to arrive in September... Just like MATE, Cinnamon, and Xfce releases, the KDE release is a long term release that will remain supported until 2021. Linux Mint 18 'Sarah' KDE Edition ships with Mozilla Firefox as default web browser and LibreOffice as the default office suite. The Linux distro also features a wide range of popular KDE apps like Kontact, Dolphin, Gwenview, KMail, digiKam, KTorrent, Skanlite, Konversation, K3b, Konsole, Amarok, Ark, Kate, Okular, and Dragon Player. "Unlike other Linux Mint editions, the KDE edition will ship with the SDDM display manager," reports the Linux Mint blog. Distrowatch notes that it's based on Ubuntu 16.04, and suggests "Mint's 'KDE' flavour might turn out to be the most interesting of the bunch, especially if the project's usually excellent quality assurance is applied to this edition in the same manner as in its 'MATE' and 'Cinnamon' variants."
