LibreOffice Spanish Blog: Lo que vendrá con LibreOffice 5.3: ¡soporte OpenType completo!

Bueno, las cosas hay que decirlas: esto me ha tomado realmente por sorpresa.

Todo comienza con un tema en ask.libreoffice que apunta a un antiguo reporte donde Khaled Hosny (mantiene las fuentes tipográficas Libertinus) comenta lo siguiente:

Features can now be controlled for OpenType fonts in the same syntax as Graphite features. Proper ODF support and UI are still missing.

Es decir, «[las] funciones pueden ahora ser controladas para fuentes OpenType con la misma sintaxis que las funciones Graphite. Todavía falta un soporte ODF apropiado y una interfaz gráfica».

Y bueno, que no quedaba otra que descargar una versión de desarrollo y probarlo por mi mismo.

Efectivamente ¡FUNCIONA!

libo530-opentype

Para aprovechar las funciones OpenType avanzadas es necesario conocer su «etiqueta», para lo cual la página de Dario Taraborelli es una referencia insustituible. La sintaxis es la siguiente

Nombre Fuente:etiqueta

Por ejemplo, para activar el primer set estilístico (ss01) de Kleymissky escribimos como nombre de fuente

Kleymissky:ss01

Para activar las verdaderas versalitas (smcp) en EBGaramond 12

EB Garamond 12:smcp

Ligaduras históricas, swash, fracciones… todo lo que he probado hasta ahora funciona perfectamente. ¡Incluso se pueden combinar funciones separándolas con un &!

EB Garamond 12:swsh&hlig

Utilizará simultáneamente swash y ligaduras históricas.

Ciertamente al abrir un archivo creado en 5.3 con una versión anterior las etiquetas OpenType serán ignoradas, pero al volver a 5.3 todo estará en su lugar.

¡Impresionante!

Florian Effenberger: LibreOffice am LinuxDay Vorarlberg 2016

Jedes Jahr kurz vor Weihnachten, meistens am Samstag vor dem ersten Advent, findet in Dornbirn der LinuxDay Vorarlberg statt, der zahlreiche Besucher aus Deutschland, Österreich, der Schweiz und aus Liechtenstein anzieht.

Auch LibreOffice war in diesem Jahr natürlich wieder mit einem eigenen Stand von der Partie, betreut von Robert, Alex, Lothar und mir. Neben der aktuellen LibreOffice-Version hatten wir auch Bücher, Broschüren, Flyer, Sticker, unseren Jahresbericht und zahlreiche weitere Materialien im Gepäck. Insbesondere die Kulis rissen uns die Besucher förmlich aus der Hand, manch einer nicht ohne die Frage, ob man damit auch im OpenDocument-Format schreiben kann. 😉

Stefan hat zudem einen Workshop abgehalten, bei dem er Anwender in die Tiefen der Textverarbeitung eingeführt hat.

Für mich gehört der LinuxDay zum Jahresausklang mittlerweile einfach dazu und ich bin jedes Jahr gerne in Dornbirn zu Gast. Vielen Dank an alle Organisatoren für euren großartigen Einsatz und eine tolle Veranstaltung und natürlich an alle Helfer am Stand für euer Engagement – es war ein toller Tag!

Ich freu mich schon darauf, 2017 wieder in Dornbirn zu Besuch zu sein.

Mike Kaganski: Integrating LibreOffice with SharePoint – part 2

In my previous post, I discuss LibreOffice‘s CMIS integration with SharePoint. This post, as promised, is dedicated to WebDAV method of accessing SharePoint servers from LibreOffice.

Basic WebDAV support is already present in LibreOffice, which inherits it from OpenOffice.org. You may put SharePoint URL into OS’s File Open dialog, and browse and open documents as if they were on local file system. But to claim SharePoint WebDAV support, LibreOffice should provide ease of use no less than its competitors.

Existing users of MS Office are used to access the documents on SharePoint server using web browser integration. This allows to navigate to a document and open it in associated office program simply clicking on its link on web page, or using the page’s options to check-out document, open it for reading, etc. A document that is open this way isn’t downloaded by browser to be opened by application locally, but is open by office application via WebDAV, thus presenting easy way to work with document, including saving your work to proper place automatically. This integration is now available for all modern browsers (the level of feature support vary, though).

sp-webdav1

There are two mechanisms used to enable such integration. The first (and older) one is using ActiveX control/browser plugin. This method works for IE (classic mode) using OpenDocuments ActiveX control (and also used to work for Firefox and Chrome using NPAPI plugin, but since NPAPI was deprecated, it doesn’t work there anymore). In essence, a JavaScript click handler on the page instantiates the control, and then uses its methods to open the document with corresponding application in required mode. With all implied security considerations.

The second (newer) method is using custom URI schemes. This requires that corresponding URI handler be registered in OS/browser, and the handler application be able to recognize these URIs and extract actual WebDAV URIs required to access the document on server from them.

Both methods were lately addressed in LibreOffice development by Collabora Productivity. To implement first method, a custom ActiveX control was coded, and is now awaiting review on gerrit.

To utilize SharePoint custom URIs, LibreOffice was taught to recognize MS Office’s existing custom URIs. This is required to allow using LibreOffice to open MS Office’s documents from SharePoint on those computers that don’t have MS Office installed. But that’s not enough; we should be able to treat ODF independently, e.g. to allow for configurations where both LibreOffice and MS Office co-exist on a workstation, and must handle their respective native formats. To achieve that, we introduced our own custom URI scheme, vnd.libreoffice.command. Now LibreOffice can accept any of these URIs, and successfully open the document in proper mode.

But for LibreOffice to open them, these URIs must be passed to it from the SharePoint web page. We added registration of our own custom URI handler into installer for Windows OS, and also we now register LibreOffice as MS Office URIs handler if user chooses to register MS formats to open with LibreOffice.

If you choose to use the second (custom URI) integration method, and you don’t need MS Office as handler for DOCXs, PPTXs etc., then you don’t need to configure your SharePoint server for that to work. All that you need is to install recent enough LibreOffice (v.5.3+), and configure it at installation time to open MS Office files.

But if you choose either first method (ActiveX), or second method with coexisting LibreOffice/MS Office workstations, then you will need to configure SharePoint server for that. In both cases, you will need to edit DOCICON.xml file, that  may be found in server’s %ProgramFiles%\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\XX\TEMPLATE\XML. This is an XML file, and we should edit sub-elements of ByExtension element. Such sub-element has the following syntax:

<Mapping Key="odt" Value="icodt.png" EditText="LibreOffice" OpenControl="LOSPSupport.OpenDocuments" OpenApp="vnd.libreoffice.command"/>
  • Key = file extension
  • Value = icon file
  • EditText = Text on “Edit with application” UI button – required for edit option. Optional.
  • OpenControl = ActiveX OpenDocuments control name (currently IE 32-bit only). Optional.
  • OpenApp = custom URI scheme to handle this. Independent from and appears to have priority over OpenControl. Available in 2013 SP1. Optional.

You should use either OpenControl or OpenApp, depending on which integration method you have chosen. Do it for those extensions that you want to be handled by LibreOffice. Of course, you should backup the file prior to modifying it.

After you have made all necessary modifications, to activate the settings, you need to restart IIS. To do that, you may execute command iisreset from the server’s administrator command line.

That’s it, if you did everything right, LibreOffice should now seamlessly integrate with SharePoint website, and be automatically launched when you choose to open files from there, without downloading the file to local machine first.

This is the second of two posts that discuss the current state of SharePoint integration support in LibreOffice. Thank you for reading, and enjoy the best free office suite ever!

Naruhiko Ogasawara: LibreOffice Kaigi 2016.12


Short notice,

We, Japanese LibreOffice community, are preparing the"LibreOffice Kaigi 2016.12" on 10th Dec. (Sat), the annual LibreOffice meetup in Japan.

  • Date/Time: 10th Dec. (Sat), 13:00-18:00 JST
  • Venue: Cybozu Inc. (Tokyo Nihonbashi Tower 27F, Nihonbashi, Tokyo)
  • Fee: free (NOT includes the party at the same night)

The name of the event was renewed, from "LibreOffice mini Conference Japan", to emphasize it is not only "geographically local" but "language local."  "Kaigi" is a Japanese word means "conference" or "meeting."

We will invite Mr. Franklin Weng, who leads Taiwan government's ODF / LibreOffice migration, as the keynote speaker.   We believe that his talk will be a perfect gift for Japanese LibreOffice users.

The whole programs will be in Japanese (except the keynote; we will prepare the Japanese slide though), but of course, every non-Japanese speakers are welcome.

We'll co-organize the party after the conference with Debian Japanese community; they'll also have a conference exact a same venue :).  And we'll have a HackFest on 11th Dec. (Sun) at the same venue.

See you at Nihonbashi!

    followed of course by all manner of other legal boilerplate. I guess it's a damning indictment of another products' interoperability with itself too; hey ho. It is amazing to see how government policy around ODF meets reality.

Miklos Vajna: Insert PDF as image in LibreOffice 5.3

Results

LibreOffice 5.3 will add one more vector-based format that can be inserted as an image into documents: PDF. First, thanks to PMG who made this work possible. On the user interface you can now select PDF files when you choose e.g. Writer’s Insert → Image option:

The first page of the PDF document will be shown, which is handy if the PDF file is basically used as a vector image format.

Similarly to the SVG feature, the original vector image is stored in the document, but when saving to ODF, a replacement PNG file is also generated to be backwards compatible with older ODF readers. The image context menu → Save menu item allows to extract your original PDF data from the image, too:

And that’s it, as long as you save your document in ODF, your PDF-as-an-image will be kept without loosing any data. As usual, you can try this right now with a 5.3 daily build. :-)

However, if you’re interested in how this is implemented, keep reading…

Document model

The PDF image in the document model is really similar to how SVG is handled, next to Graphic::getSvgData(), there is now a Graphic::getPdfData(). This new member function exposes the original PDF data, otherwise the Graphic is just a metafile.

UNO API

The ReplacementGraphicURL property of the image at an UNO level now exposes the generated metafile for PDF images. This is implemented for both Draw and Writer images, and is used by the ODF export filter.

Layout

When the Graphic instance is rendered, the layout knows nothing about the PDF data attached to the object, only parses the generated metafile. This way the display of the PDF image works out of the box.

Filters

First I’ve implemented a PDF import-as-graphic filter, then the export equivalent of it. As you can see, the PDF import-as-graphic filter isn’t too complicated, it completely reuses the existing "import PDF into Draw" filter, it simply copies the first page of the resulting document model as a metafile.

Second, once the graphic filters were working, I’ve also improved the ODF import to recognize PDF data — the export side needed no explicit work, once the ReplacementGraphicURL bits were in place.

Tests

As mentioned above, the Draw and the Writer image implementation is separate, so first I’ve added tests for ODT files in the testEmbeddedPdf of CppunitTest_sw_odfexport, and then SdExportTest::testEmbeddedPdf() to cover ODP files (and other ODF formats). Second, the PDF part of the graphic swapout/in code has a dedicated test in GraphicObjectTest::testPdf(), and the UI’s "Save original PDF" feature has a new XOutdevTest::testPdfGraphicExport() test.

Oh, and if you intent to test this manually in a self-created build, make sure to avoid --disable-pdfimport, otherwise this feature can’t work. ;-)

Official TDF Blog: Community Week: Documentation – who’s who, the tools used, and how to get involved

LibreOffice Community Weeks

Earlier in the week we talked to Olivier Hallot who’s heading up the documentation team in LibreOffice. But other people are contributing as well, so if you want to help out, here are some names to look out for:

  • Jean Weber is the author and original producer of the LibreOffice guides
  • Stan Horacek, Gabor Kelemen, Adolfo Jaime Barrientos and others are contributors to the help contents
  • Dennis Roczek and Lera Goncharuk work mostly on the wiki
  • Andrea Mussap just joined and under Olivier’s advice produced a help page for LibreOffice

The team communicates via the documentation mailing list (see the archives here), where you can post suggestions for updates or ask for areas that need help. Another alternative is to use the IRC channel (#libreoffice-doc on Freenode), which is better for more immediate discussion – but can be quiet at times, if it’s night-time where many of the participants are based.

 

Tools of the trade

LibreOffice’s documentation content is split into two main categories: online help, and the guidebooks. They are both fundamentally important to the office suite, but differ in the style of content and who it’s aimed at.

The user guides are available on the LibreOffice website, in ODT (for Writer) and PDF formats, and printed copies can be bought as well. You can see that the Getting Started guide for LibreOffice 5.x is the most up-to-date – so a good way to help out is to edit the other guides (eg for Writer and Calc) to bring them in line with the LibreOffice 5.x series as well.

In addition, there’s the help that’s built in to LibreOffice (usually accessible by pressing F1). Unlike the user guides, which provide detailed explanations of how to do tasks in LibreOffice, the built-in help focuses on answering questions about specific features. This is usually the first resource that users of the software consult if they have a problem, before looking in the user guides or searching the internet.

A list of frequently asked questions (FAQ) is available on the wiki, but some of the answers are dated. A better resource is the Ask LibreOffice site which lets people post and answer questions.

 

Get involved!

So you’ve seen what the documentation project does, who’s in the team, and what they’re working on. Why not help out yourself? If you’re interested in a career in technical writing, this is a great way to build up some experience. Or if you’re already familiar with such work, you can really make a difference to a major free and open source software project!

Getting started is easy:

  • Send a blank email to documentation+subscribe@global.libreoffice.org and follow the instructions to sign up to the mailing list
  • Introduce yourself – you don’t need to include a CV, but just provide a few lines of who you are and how you want to help
  • Someone on the docs team will answer and help you out

For newcomers, there is a meta bug in bugzilla bringing together various “easy hacks” – small tasks that you can do easily without much experience or long-term committment. Even the smallest fixes and tweaks can make all the difference.

Then there is the ODFAuthors site which has information on producing LibreOffice user guides, and is where a lot of the writing work takes place.

So that’s a summary of how the documentation project works, and we hope you will join us on the team soon! Drop by our IRC channel at any time for a chat:

Official TDF Blog: LibreOffice contributor interview: Regina Henschel

Regina Henschel LibreOffice developer

Now that the LibreOffice Conference has finished, we’re back to our regular contributor interviews. This week it’s the turn of Regina Henschel who helps LibreOffice users by answering questions, testing new features and working on bug reports.

What is your IRC nickname / location / social media page?

I live in Dortmund (Germany). You can best contact me via the mailing lists. I don’t have any account on Twitter or Facebook or similar, and I seldom use IRC (nickname pppregin).

Do you work for a LibreOffice-related company or just contribute in
your spare time?

I do all of my work for LibreOffice in my spare time. In my daily job I’m teacher of mathematics.

How did you get involved with LibreOffice?

That is a wide range: I’m member of the Open Document Format Technical Committee (ODF TC), I answer questions on ask.libreoffice.org and on the mailing lists, I discuss and test new features and work on Bugzilla issues, and sometimes I contribute code.

What areas of the project do you normally work on? Anything else you want to tackle?

Currently I watch the development of some new features coming in from the Google Summer of Code, including testing, and I need a lot of my time for to prepare me for ODF TC meetings.

I would like to do much more coding. But especially in Draw, which I like most, the code is complicated and I don’t have enough spare time to learn it quickly. My special interest is in the 3D features of Draw.

What was your initial experience of contributing to LibreOffice like?

I started with user support for StarOffice in Usenet newsgroups more than sixteen years ago, and have got a lot of product experience with OpenOffice.org. A really surprising aspect of LibreOffice was how much easier it has become to build on Windows. Using Gerrit was unfamiliar for me, but help on IRC or mailing list was always there.

What areas of LibreOffice do you think need to be improved?

We need more volunteers to look after the increasing amount of users, and manage the growth of questions and bug reports. Also, we need more testers for new features and people to document user interface changes and new features.

Which is your preferred text editor? And why?

A lot of my work is creating test files and examining file formats. For that I use XML Notepad 2007, where I can work directly on the nodes, without need for all the quotes and angle brackets, which are needed in a simple editor. And I use Notepad++. It has syntax highlighting for XML and C++ (among lot of other languages), folding, it reformats XML, and makes diffs. Sometimes I use PSPad, mostly as a notepad, because of its quick starting, or I use its HexViewer. That is all on Windows, as you might have noticed.

What do you do when you’re not working on LibreOffice?

Besides my daily job, all the other time goes to my family.

Thanks Regina! And thanks indeed to our whole community – if you’re reading this and want to get involved, join us today and help to make LibreOffice even better.

Official TDF Blog: Community conference starts with 10th release of LibreOffice in 2016

downloadBrno, September 7, 2016 – The Document Foundation (TDF) has celebrated the opening session of LibOCon with the announcement of LibreOffice 5.2.1, the first minor release of the LibreOffice 5.2 family.

LibOCon is a showcase of the project activity, and will feature over 60 talks in three days, covering development, QA, localization, ODF, marketing, community and documentation, a business session in Czech focused on large deployments of LibreOffice, and a meeting of the Open Source Business Alliance (OSBA).

Details of the conference, including the program and collateral activities such as the traditional “hacknight” – a hands-on session where developers hack over food and drinks – are available on the event website: http://conference.libreoffice.org.

LibreOffice 5.2.1, targeted at technology enthusiasts, early adopters and power users, provides a number of fixes over the major release announced in August. For all other users and enterprise deployments, TDF suggests LibreOffice 5.1.5 “still”, with the backing of professional support by certified people (a list is available at: http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/professional-support/).

People interested in technical details about the release can access the change log here: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.2.1/RC1 (fixed in RC1) and https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/5.2.1/RC2 (fixed in RC2).

Download LibreOffice

LibreOffice 5.2.1 is immediately available for download from the following link: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/.

LibreOffice users, free software advocates and community members can support The Document Foundation with a donation at http://donate.libreoffice.org.

Several companies sitting on the TDF Advisory Board (http://www.documentfoundation.org/governance/advisory-board/) are providing either value-added Long Term Supported versions of LibreOffice or consultancy services for migrations and trainings, based on best practices distilled by The Document Foundation.

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."

Official TDF Blog: Getting Started with LibreOffice 5.1, a new book from the community addresses the demand for updated documentation on the software

GS51-GettingStartedLOThe new manual supports the large number of organizations and individuals deploying LibreOffice “Still” 5.1 to get superior quality and stability

Berlin, August 16, 2016 – Volunteers active in LibreOffice Documentation Project within The Document Foundation announce the availability of the Getting Started Guide for LibreOffice 5.1. The book updates the traditional introductory text with the new features provided by the “still” version of the software, targeted to enterprise deployments and to individual users looking for superior quality and stability.

Updated by members of the community, the book is an effort to fill the gap in official documentation for LibreOffice. The Document Foundation is working hard to reduce the delay between the release of the software and its companion documentation, for a better user experience and a stronger competitive offering.

“Many communities consider the Getting Started Guide as a source for translation into their native language, to create localized textbooks for teaching LibreOffice in all environments, from academia to the enterprise,” says Olivier Hallot, documentation coordinator at TDF. “A timely release of these books will send a strong message about the commitment of the community for professional collaterals.”

“In addition to the free downloads of the book in PDF and ODT (editable) forms, users can buy printed copies,” says Jean Hollis Weber, volunteer writer, editor, and publisher of the official LibreOffice guides. “I’ve been working with a great group of other documentation volunteers, but we always need more people.”

To download or buy copies (from Friends of OpenDocument Inc., an Australia-based volunteer organization with members around the world, which supports the LibreOffice project), visit https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/documentation.

Official TDF Blog: LibreOffice 5.2 “fresh” released, for Windows, Mac OS and GNU/Linux

tdf-roadtolo52LibreOffice 5.1.5 “still” announced, for enterprise class deployments

Berlin, August 3, 2016 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 5.2, a feature-rich major release of the best free office suite ever created – targeted to early adopters and power users – with several user interface improvements and enterprise grade features.

At the same time, LibreOffice 5.1.5 has been released, for enterprise class deployments and more conservative office suite users.

classificationLibreOffice 5.2 provides document classification according to the TSCP standard, and a set of improved forecasting functions in Calc. In addition, multiple signature descriptions are now supported, along with import and export of signatures from OOXML files.

Interoperability features have also been improved, with better Writer import filters for DOCX and RTF files, and the added support for Word for DOS legacy documents. Additional type argument values for interoperability with other spreadsheets, along with wildcard support in formula expressions for compatibility with XLS/XLSX and ODF 1.2, have also been added.

In term of user experience, a single toolbar mode has been added to Writer and Calc to help users really focus on content, and some icons have been added to the default toolbars to make several frequently used functions – such as hide/show track changes, and freeze the first column or row of a spreadsheet – quicker to access. Also, most of the context menus can now be customized, for even greater control.

LibreOffice has been downloaded 140 million times since the launch in January 2011. The office suite is deployed by large organizations in every continent, with the latest addition being the Lithuanian Police with over 8,000 desktops.

Other New Features of LibreOffice 5.2

  • New drawing tools, including filled curves, polygons and freeform lines, have been added to all program modules.

Writer

  • When printing a document, Print to File is now available in the list of printers.

  • If you use Google Drive for storage, two-factor authentication support has been included.

  • The Save toolbar button includes a quick Save as Template option, so you don’t have to go through the menu.

Calc

  • New functions have been added, along with extensive tooltips that describe what a function does as you type it.

  • Multiple status bar functions can be active at the same time, to provide a quick overview of your data.

  • The currency toolbar icon now includes a drop-down menu to quickly choose the currency you want to use.

  • When removing the border from selected cells, you can also choose to remove the border from adjacent cells as well.

Impress

  • When working with custom animations, you can now quickly add an effect to an element via the sidebar, instead of using a separate dialog box.

  • The list of effects in the sidebar now includes a description of the effect, along with the element name.

  • In the properties sidebar, a new Slide Background panel lets you quickly change the format, orientation and background image of a slide.

A complete list of the better documented new features is available in a separate PDF document (http://tdf.io/lo52features), and on the website at http://www.libreoffice.org/discover/new-features/. Short videos presenting the most significant new features for Writer, Calc and Impress are available at: http://tdf.io/52vids.

LibreOffice 5.2 has also been improved “under the hood,” thanks to the work of hundreds of volunteers (https://people.gnome.org/~michael/blog/2016-08-03-under-the-hood-5-2.html). This translates into an open source office suite which is easier to develop, maintain and debug. Although this is not visible to users, it is extremely important for enterprise deployments.

coverityAccording to Coverity Scan, the number of open issues for 1,000 lines of LibreOffice 5.2 source code at the time of release is a record setting 0.00 (for 7,8 million lines of source code), against an industry average of 0.61 for open source software and 0.75 for proprietary software.

LibreOffice 5.2 is a significant step forward for Free Software on the desktop, and will soon be available as a full featured cloud office suite,” says Michael Meeks, a Director at The Document Foundation (TDF) and a leading developer of LibreOffice Online. “The tight integration between desktop and cloud will provide enterprises a value added experience, with the best of both platforms always available to all users.”

LibreOffice is growing fast, thanks to distinctive advantages such as the standard document format, which is recognized by a growing number of governments as the best solution for interoperability,” says Thorsten Behrens, a Director at The Document Foundation (TDF) and a member of the OASIS ODF Technical Committee.

Availability and enterprise deployments

LibreOffice 5.2 represents the bleeding edge in term of features for open source office suites. For enterprise class deployments, TDF maintains the more mature 5.1.5 version.

LibreOffice 5.2 “fresh” and LibreOffice 5.1.5 “still” are immediately available from the following link: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/. LibreOffice users, free software advocates and all community members can support The Document Foundation with a donation at http://donate.libreoffice.org.

LibreOffice 5.2 for GNU/Linux is also available in new packaging formats, which make it easier for end users to install and update the application: Flatpak from Red Hat and Snap from Canonical.

In any case, TDF suggests deploying or migrating to LibreOffice with the backing of certified professionals providing Level 3 support, migration or training consultancy according to recognized best practices worldwide (http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/professional-support/).

Several companies sitting in TDF Advisory Board (http://www.documentfoundation.org/governance/advisory-board/) are providing either value added Long Term Supported versions of LibreOffice or consultancy services for migrations and trainings, based on best practices distilled by The Document Foundation.

LibreOffice 5.2 and LibreOffice 5.1.5 are built with document conversion libraries supporting proprietary document formats from the Document Liberation Project: http://www.documentliberation.org.

OwnCloud

New in owncloud 9.1

Today is the release of the long awaited ownCloud 9.1 Community Edition. It includes significant improvements for users, administrators and developers.

  • Authentication – ownCloud is delivering innovative security features like pluggable authentication and token based authentication sessions. You can now also list all connected devices in your personal user’s page and invalidate sessions if needed. Another significant security improvement is device specific tokens. This allows you to control the access to your ownCloud on even more secure ways. Time-based one-time passwords (TOTP) enable users to automatically increase the security of their accounts by using services like Google Authenticator or the open-source implementation of the TOTP standard.
    ownCloud has partnered with PrivacyIDEA, an open source authentication server solution with a lot of experience with authentication, provided by Net Knights GmbH.
  • Collabora Online – We’ve teamed up with the developers of Collabora Online and provided a Docker Image for collaborative online document editing. We encourage our users to use the collabora vm which can be also found here. Available formats for editing are DOC, DOCX, PPT, PPTX, XLS, XLSX + ODF.
  • Ultimate Scalability – ownCloud’s goal is to get users the files they are looking for quickly and smoothly, and as larger installations are being deployed, ownCloud has collaborated with large ownCloud users, like CERN and Sciebo, to bring the scalability of ownCloud to a new level. To be able to deliver petabytes of data to hundreds of thousands of users, key areas like the storage and sharing functionality of ownCloud have been improved. ownCloud 9.1 can now use  multi-bucket object storage as a backend.
  • Full Federation – ownCloud 9 brings federation of ownCloud servers to a new level with better performance; resharing a federated share does not create a chain of shares any more, but instead connects the share owner’s server to the reshare recipient.
  • Contacts, Calendar and ownCloud Mail – Contacts, Calendar and ownCloud Mail have all received significant updates and improvements. They can be updated conveniently in the ownCloud App Store. For example: Birthdays are now also generated based on shared address books owncloud/core#23510 in your ownCloud Calendar.

With the latest release of ownCloud Community Edition, it is only a matter of weeks before ownCloud 9.1 Enterprise Edition will also be released and available to our customers.

Bulgaria Got a Law Requiring Open Source

All software written for the government in Bulgaria are now required to be open-source. The amendments to put such laws in motion were voted in domestic parliament and are now in effect, announced software engineer Bozhidar Bozhanov, who is also an adviser to the Deputy Prime Minister at Council of Ministers of the Republic of Bulgaria. All such software will also be required by law to be developed in a public repository. Bozhanov writes in a blog post:That does not mean that the whole country is moving to Linux and LibreOffice, neither does it mean the government demands Microsoft and Oracle to give the source to their products. Existing solutions are purchased on licensing terms and they remain unaffected (although we strongly encourage the use of open source solutions for that as well). It means that whatever custom software the government procures will be visible and accessible to everyone. After all, it's paid by tax-payers money and they should both be able to see it and benefit from it. As for security -- in the past "security through obscurity" was the main approach, and it didn't quite work -- numerous vulnerabilities were found in government websites that went unpatched for years, simply because a contract had expired. With opening the source we hope to reduce those incidents, and to detect bad information security practices in the development process, rather than when it's too late.

The Document Foundation Planet

Official TDF Blog: LibreOffice documentation: join us in this adventure

olivier_hallot_07062010_964x1036
The LibreOffice documentation team produces the guidebooks, reference materials, wiki and online help to support users of the software. We’re working hard to add all the exciting new features and functions of recent LibreOffice versions, to show how your office productivity can be improved thanks to the free office suite – and your help would be very much appreciated! Even if you can only spare 30 minutes each week, your contribution would be very valuable, and you’ll also get experience with a big-name open source project. Read on for the full details…

20,000 Lines Under the C

I am borrowing Jules Verne’s famous classic book title to make the community aware of all the work that goes on, beyond and “under the C” source code, in LibreOffice development and adoption.

These “20,000 lines” are the documentation lines we need to write or review relating to all LibreOffice features, in order to support users and bring LibreOffice further into the workplace. And that includes all media available, from text to graphics, from videos to computer-based training, and from English to Mongolian, crossing landscapes of Hindi or Guarani-speaking people.

It’s not an easy task to undertake. And there is no way one individual can carry all this. LibreOffice needs its community of users and writers to build the edifice of creating solid documentation.

The good part of this is that people don’t need special skills to write about LibreOffice, beyond basic knowledge of an office suite. The game is open to a wide range of knowledgeable people.

Today we have three main lines for documenting LibreOffice, under The Document Foundation (TDF). Each of them deserves care and attention and is what the community can help with:

  • The help content, that is installed alongside your main LibreOffice installation and is opened when you press F1 on a dialog box
  • The Guide books, worked on by the ODF Authors team, which aim to be the reference books on LibreOffice
  • Our Wiki, with information spread here and there with a continuous effort to collect pages in chapters or volumes, and dealing with multiple language and with new and obsolete content.

In the last 3 months we have reactivated the documentation community and we are meeting twice a month for updates on our progress. These meetings help us to align the needs of the documentation and the translation community with the available resource and initiatives of TDF. We’re always looking forward to interested new contributors to the writers community.

On the Help content side, we created a website to display the help pages in a modern browser. Even if it is work in progress, we connected it to the Pootle translation server so translators now can display the help page where the untranslated strings belongs, for better contextualization and translation quality.

Let’s not forget that the help content pages were designed 10 years ago, bearing the web environment and limitations of that era. We converted and published in our wiki the only book available on the help XML schema, so that now any change on the schema will be documented. For example, the tag <object> was designed to display multimedia and other MIME types but was never implemented. Also, we introduced in 2013 the tag <bascode> for Basic code paragraphs, that was not present in the 2006 documentation, and now is documented in the wiki.

Our classic literature on LibreOffice, carefully maintained by the ODF Authors team, is now being updated to release 5.1 of LibreOffice for immediate publishing, and we are seeking to shorten the delay time for the 5.2 edition. We think the LibreOffice major release can be synchronized with the Getting Started book, and who knows if these two projects can have the same release date, or even the book can be embedded in the local HelpContent package, called by an entry in LibreOffice Help menu.

Looking forward the next quarters in the year we would like to have a broader discussion with the documentation community and also better understand the relationship between users and the LibreOffice documentation.

If you are a LibreOffice documentation writer please tell us about your needs.

  • Are you comfortable with the current book writing/updating process?
  • Are you knowledgeable in modern authoring teamwork tools?
  • Where do you think TDF should invest time and resources for documentation?
  • Where should TDF improve incentives for writing LibreOffice documentation?
  • Do you miss a specific resource for your documentation work TDF should provide?
  • How can we make our publications more visible?

And if you are a LibreOffice user, let us know:

  • Are you a LibreOffice Guide book reader?
  • Have you ever bought a book on LibreOffice?
  • How do you seek LibreOffice assistance at work?
  • Are you a Help (F1) reader? Is it clear, precise, and easy to read? Where it should improve?
  • How do you think a good help system will make your work easier?
  • What is your preferred media to learn LibreOffice features?

Please help us to write together these 20,000 lines “under the C code” we need. Join our discussion in our mailing list and in our virtual meetings. We want to hear you.

One objective of open formats like OpenDocument is to guarantee long-term access to data without legal or technical barriers, and some governments have come to view open formats as a public policy issue. Several governments around the world have introduced policies of partial or complete adoption.<ref name="papers.ssrn.com"/> What this means varies from case to case; in some cases, it means that the ODF standard has a national standard identifier; in some cases, it means that the ODF standard is permitted to be used where national regulation says that non-proprietary formats must be used, and in still other cases, it means that some government body has actually decided that ODF will be used in some specific context.

Official TDF Blog: Document Liberation Project: progress so far in 2016

If you haven’t heard of the Document Liberation Project (DLP) before, we made a short video explaining what it does and why it’s important. In summary: it supports development of software libraries to read documents from many (usually proprietary) applications. If you’ve ever opened a file generated by Apple Pages, WordPerfect or Microsoft Works in LibreOffice, you’ve benefitted from the hard work of the DLP team. And DLP libraries are used in many other prominent FOSS tools such as Inkscape and Scribus as well.

For example, here’s a file being created in Apple Pages, and the same file being rendered in LibreOffice thanks to DLP libraries (click for a bigger version):

So, what has been going on in the DLP so far this year? Here’s an overview.

New releases

In January, libetonyek 0.1.6 was released with a bunch of new features. This library, which helps applications to read files produced by Apple Keynote, Pages and Numbers, can now properly parse links, lists and text languages in Keynote 6 files, while resizing of tables is handled properly. Text containing non-ASCII characters (ie, the majority of non-English languages) is now managed much better as well.

Scribus 1.5.1 was released in February, as part of the development process towards a stable 1.6 release of this desktop publishing tool. Along with many new features and updates, Scribus 1.5.1 makes use of the libfreehand 0.1.1 library, which allows it to read documents created in Adobe FreeHand. This feature is still marked as experimental – as it’s very early days – but is already working well and will be very useful to some Scribus users.

March saw the release of two other DLP libraries: libpagemaker 0.0.3 (for parsing Adobe PageMaker documents) can now read big-endian (Mac) files, while writerperfect 0.9.5 (for conversion of various document formats to ODF, EPUB and AbiWord) includes a number of build fixes and can also convert old StarOffice files.

Website updates

In order to make the goals of the Document Liberation Project clear and accessible, and attract potential new contributors, we redesigned the front page of the DLP website. We broke up the big chunks of text that used to dominate the front page, and added logos and links to several projects that use DLP libraries.

Here’s a before-and-after comparison:

In addition, we added a link to the aforementioned video that describes DLP and tries to make it accessible to a wider audience. As more and more computer users recognise the downsides of non-standard file formats and vendor lock-in, projects like the DLP will become increasingly important.

Get involved!

DLP is always looking for new contributors, and appreciates all help with coding, testing and documentation. If you enjoy programming and tackling new challenges, creating a new import library can be especially rewarding! Fathoming out the insides of a closed file format is fascinating, and you’ll get plenty of appreciation from users in the future who can finally open their old documents without struggling to run ancient software in a virtual machine…

So to join, visit the contributor page for pointers to get started.

Official TDF Blog: KDE e.V. joins advisory board of The Document Foundation

ev_largeBerlin, June 16, 2016 – The Document Foundation announces that KDE e.V. is joining the organization’s Advisory Board, and at the same time The Document Foundation joins KDE’s group of advising community partners as an affiliate.

KDE is creating Free Software since 1996 and shares a lot of values around Free Software and open document formats with The Document Foundation, and brings the experience of running a Free Software organization for almost two decades to their advisory board.

Both organizations are working in the OASIS technical committee for the OpenDocument format, and also collaborate on common aspects of development of office software, such as usability and visual design. The affiliation of KDE and The Document Foundation at an organizational level will help to move forward with the shared goal of giving end users control of their computing needs through Free Software.

“The KDE project is one of the essential pieces of the FLOSS desktop initiative, and we are most happy to liaise with them now also on an organizational level. Beyond the shared goal of liberating people’s software experience, there is also lots of synergies to explore in areas ranging from document filter technologies to volunteer-driven governance,” says Thorsten Behrens, member of the board at The Document Foundation.

Lydia Pintscher, President of KDE e.V., says: “KDE has been one of the first Free Software non-profit organizations incorporated according to German law. We are happy to share some of the things we learnt over the many years we are running KDE now. Free software and open formats are two of the cornerstones which unite us with many other organizations, such as The Document Foundation, working on establishing freedom for users of digital devices everywhere. In order to achieve our vision of a world in which everyone has control over their digital life and enjoys freedom and privacy, we need strong partnerships with like-minded organizations like The Document Foundation.”

About KDE e.V.

KDE e.V. is a registered non-profit organization that represents the KDE Community: an international technology team dedicated to creating a free and user-friendly computing experience, offering an advanced graphical desktop, a variety of applications for communication, work, education and entertainment, and a platform to easily build new applications upon. More information about KDE and KDE e.V. can be found at www.kde.org.

The original OpenDocument format consists of an [[XML]] document that has <code><document></code> as its [[root element]]. OpenDocument files can also take the format of a [[ZIP (file format)|ZIP]] compressed archive containing a number of files and directories; these can contain binary content and benefit from ZIP's [[lossless compression]] to reduce file size. OpenDocument benefits from [[separation of concerns]] by separating the content, styles, metadata, and application settings into four separate XML files.

CentOS Linux 6.8 Released

An anonymous reader writes: CentOS team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of CentOS Linux 6.8 and install media for i386 and x86_64 Architectures. Release Notes for 6.8 are available here. Softpedia writes: "CentOS Linux 6.8 arrives today with major changes, among which we can mention the latest Linux 2.6.32 kernel release from upstream with support for storing up to 300TB of data on XFS filesystems. The VPN endpoint solution implemented in the NetworkManager network connection manager utility is now provided on the libreswan library instead of the Openswan IPsec implementation used in previous release of the OS, and it looks like the SSLv2 protocol has been disabled by default for the SSSD (System Security Services Daemon), which also comes with support for smart cards now." In addition, the new release comes with updated applications, including the LibreOffice 4.3.7 office suite and Squid 3.4 caching and forwarding web proxy, many of which are supporting the Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 protocol, including Git, YUM, Postfix, OpenLDAP, stunnel, and vsftpd. The dmidecode open-source tool now supports SMBIOS 3.0.0, you can now pull kickstart files from HTTPS (Secure HTTP) sources, the NTDp (Network Time Protocol daemon) package has an alternative solution as chrony, SSLv3 has been disabled by default, and there's improved support for Hyper-V.
