The Document Foundation Planet

Official TDF Blog: Marketing Activities, January to September 2018

The new year at The Document Foundation starts with FOSDEM, where many LibreOffice contributors gather for the largest Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) meeting in Europe. In 2018 we had a booth in the main hall of building K, where most of the largest projects are based, and a devroom focused on OpenDocument Format (ODF) editing software.

The marketing team at TDF was in charge of the booth and the devroom, and also of logistics for the internal meetings and the hackfest organized at ICAB just after FOSDEM. I also helped to cook some real Italian pasta for the social dinner on Saturday, where the community gathered together with some friends.

Just before FOSDEM, we announced LibreOffice 6.0. We coordinated the announcement, drafting the documents for the press kit and organizing several pre briefings with journalists. As usual, thanks to the efforts of localization volunteers we were able to distribute the press release in some local languages.

We then followed up with announcements of minor releases, with a reduced emphasis in comparison with the major announcement.

After FOSDEM, we started working on TDF’s Annual Report, drafting most of the content and illustrations, and collecting images from community events for the final version. We have managed the final layout, using only free software (LibreOffice for drafting text and drawings, GIMP for tweaking images, and Scribus for creating the final layout, using the free fonts Carlito and Caladea).

After releasing the Annual Report, we started to concentrate on the next major announcement, preparing journalist mailing lists. We have a large number of contacts in media outlets around the world, which we have to update regularly.

Mailing lists are key to maintaining regular contacts with journalists. Of course, relationships must be nurtured over time, and the fact that we have always been proactive and responsive has increased our reputation. We have always replied to requests in due time, and pitched new article ideas as often as possible.

We also increased TDF and LibreOffice presence on social media, by increasing the number of tweets and posts. This will further grow in the next few months, as an increasing number of journalists are shifting to social media as the main source of information for news stories.

In early August we announced LibreOffice 6.1, with a test of the increased Twitter activity, based on a policy document that we drafted and shared with community members. We duplicated step-by-step most of the activities from the previous announcement, but we managed to organize a smaller number of pre-briefings.

In addition to these “major” marketing activities, we also managed several background tasks which are useful to keep TDF engine in good shape. The first is keeping track of donations, which provide the economic resources for the project. We are closely following donation trends, and have been implementing A/B testing for the donation page.

Starting from the month of November, this will include fundraising. If we want to bring the project to the next level, we need to raise money to increase the level of support for local communities, and for marketing and education activities behind the OpenDocument Format.

Last, but not least, we warmly invite community members to attend marketing calls. If the schedule is not the right one please let us know, and we will change it to suit your needs. If necessary, we can schedule two different calls to talk with people in different time zones (Asia and the Americas are hard to fit into the same time slot, but we have active community members in both continents).

Apache OpenOffice, the Schrodinger's Application: No One Knows If It's Dead or Alive, No One Really Wants To Look Inside

British IT news outlet The Register looks at the myriad of challenges Apache OpenOffice faces today. From the report: Last year Brett Porter, then chairman of the Apache Software Foundation, contemplated whether a proposed official blog post on the state of Apache OpenOffice (AOO) might discourage people from downloading the software due to lack of activity in the project. No such post from the software's developers surfaced. The languid pace of development at AOO, though, has been an issue since 2011 after Oracle (then patron of the project) got into a fork-fight with The Document Foundation, which created LibreOffice from the OpenOffice codebase, and asked developers backing the split to resign. Back in 2015, Red Hat developer Christian Schaller called OpenOffice "all but dead." Assertions to that effect have continued since, alongside claims to the contrary. Almost a year ago, Jim Jagielski, a member of the Apache OpenOffice Project Management Committee, insisted things were going well and claimed there was renewed interest in the project. For all the concern about AOO, no issues have been raised recently before the Apache Foundation board to suggest ongoing difficulties. The project is due to provide an update this month, according to a spokesperson for the foundation.

Muhammet Kara: Recap: LibOCon18 & Tirana

Group photo from LibOCon18 This year’s LibreOffice Annual Conference has been held in Tirana, Albania on September 25 to September 28, 2018. It was organized by a group of independent volunteers from the Open Labs Hackerspace in Tirana.

I will try to give some information about my talks, and share my experience.

Talk Less, Listen More

In these kind of events, I usually tend to propose multiple talks and/or workshops, trying to do as much as possible in a limited time; but since the conference program was full of interesting talks and workshops, I wanted to watch & learn more, and talk less this time. :)

I have attended this year’s conference with two talks, one regular and one lightning.

Talk 1: ODF and LibreOffice Adoption in Turkey: a Status Report

Migration of public institutions to LibreOffice and ODF is going on in Turkey, backed by Turkish Academic Network And Information Center (TUBITAK ULAKBIM). Some ministries, public institutions and municipalities have already completed their migrations to LibreOffice and ODF. Migrations in some institutions are in progress. And many public institutions are waiting in the line. I talked about the history, current status, problems and the future plans of Turkey’s migration to ODF, LibreOffice, GNU/Linux (particularly Pardus) and open source software in general; and tried to answer the questions of the audience.

The reaction of the audience was very positive and encouraging. I got various help/support offers. We have also discussed/brainstormed on ways to ensure the success of the migrations in Turkey, during the Certification Workshop with Lothar Becker, Italo Vignoli, and the other fellow community members. This seems like one of the upsides of having such a great community full of fantastic people. :)

Talk 2 (Lightning): Customize Dialog: The Road So Far and the Next Steps

In this lightning talk, I tried to give a quick status report on: What has been done/improved/fixed in the Customize dialog after GSoC 2017 until now; what is the current status, what is left to do, and the future plans.

Screenshot of LibreOffice Customize Dialog

The New MC

The new MC of TDF I have run for membership of the new Membership Committee of the Document Foundation, and has been elected as a deputy for the next term. It was a pleasure being introduced to the community as part of the MC.

We had a joint meeting with the Board of Directors, and also some private MC meetings.

Must Do’s in Tirana and Some Tips

Tirana is nice and small Balkan city. You can go everywhere on foot or via a bike. Although there are more to do (like a walk to the mountains, or a bike tour to the north), I’ll try to give just a few tips.

Attend a Free Walking Tour

In my last day in Tirana, I attended a free walking tour. It took about 2 hours, and was guided by a nice Albanian named Eri. He showed all of the significant places in the city center, and gave extensive information about these places and the history of Albania & Tirana.

The tour starts at 10am and 6am every day, and the starting point is in front of the Opera house at the Skanderbeg Square. You may give some tip at the end, but there is no pressure to do so; the guide was super polite. You can find more info on their web site.

Eat Traditional Food

They have delicious food, mostly meat, and they use pork extensively; but you also have a lot of other options if you are a vegan or vegetarian.

You might try Era for some traditional food in a small and calm environment.

Bike Sharing

There some bike sharing services in Tirana (like Mobike). You may download their app to your phone, and see/rent the nearest bike. There are separate bike lanes in the main roads.

Buy Tourist SIM

If your GSM service provider also has high roaming prices like the most, then you should definitely get a tourist pack from a Vodafone store as soon as you arrive at Tirana. It costs around 10 EUR for 5GB data plan, 10 min international and plenty of domestic call minutes; and it will be valid for 2 weeks. There is a Vodafone store at the airport.

Avoid Exchange at the Airport

The exchange office at the airport (in the arrival hall) has a bad rate. Try to do your EUR <->LEKE exchanges in one of the offices in the city center. Many stores and taxis will also accept EUR.

Try Daily Tours

If you are going to stay for a longer period, then you might get bored after a while. So taking some daily tours to nearby cities might be a good idea in such a case.

Berat is one of the several options. This 2,413 years-old city, the pride of Albanian architecture which is under the protection of UNESCO, is located 120 km from Tirana.

Some Points of Interest

Tirana

  • Skanderbeg Square
  • Opera
  • Clock Tower
  • Bunkers
  • Pyramid
  • Et’hem Bey Mosque

The Language

You can speak in English with the most of the younger people in Tirana. Their language (Albanian) is called Shqip. Po means Yes, Yo means No. And here is a survival dictionary.

Overall

It was a great experience overall, with many interesting and illuminating talks from different parts of the world. We have met new friends, and had a good time with the old ones also.

Looking forward to the next LibOCon in Spain!

Miklos Vajna: odfsig: an Open Document Format (ODF) digital signatures tool

I created a toy project to experiment with a few technologies I wanted to try out (cmake, googletest, xmlsec outside LibreOffice, libzip and AppVeyor). The result is a tool with a similar interface as pdfsig from poppler (for PDF files), just for ODF: a cmdline executable to verify the digital signature(s) in an ODF document.

The source code now has CI on Linux and Windows, so perhaps in a shape that is interesting for others to have a look as well. And if not, then no problem, it was interesting to put together these building blocks and see them working as expected. :-)

Linux Distro Elive Emerges Alive After 8-Year Hibernation

Designed to run on minimal hardware, Elive is very much a passion project of its leader, Samuel F Baggen. Based on Debian, the first version took a bow in 2005. The second stable version made an appearance in 2010 and it has been a long eight years for the third stable version to become available. The Register: Elive has an impressively low bar to entry, with hardware requirements for the distribution coming in at 256 MB RAM and a 500 MHz CPU, meaning that some very elderly silicon is theoretically going to be able to enjoy the highly polished Enlightenment desktop. "Theoretically" because after The Register took Elive 3.0.0 out for a spin on a relatively low-powered laptop, we'd frankly baulk at running it on anything much slower than a 533MHz Core 2 with at least 512 MB RAM. However, the Enlightenment UI is undeniably an attractive desktop, particularly if a macOS-alike dock is your thing, and runs at an impressive lick even on hardware that lacks graphics acceleration. At its core, Elive is based on the Debian 8 distribution (aka Jessie), using the 3.16 kernel and version 0.17.6 of the Enlightenment X11 Window Manager. It comes replete with a full set of applications, including the ubiquitous LibreOffice and Gimp, along with a variety of productivity and entertainment tools, some of which are Elive's own. Unlike the previous version of Elive, 3.0.0 removes the requirement of donating to the project in order to install the thing locally (although Baggen was quick to tell The Reg that cost-free alternatives existed, but often with annoying processes).

Official TDF Blog: LibreOffice monthly recap: August 2018

August was a big month for our project, with the release of a brand new version of LibreOffice! And surrounding the release, there was lots of activity in our development, documentation, design, QA and translation communities…

  • LibreOffice 6.1 was announced early in the month, with many new features and updates including new icon themes, improved EPUB support, a revamped image handling engine, and the ability to sort anchored images in Calc. Check out the announcement for more details, and this video for a demonstration of the new features:

Please confirm that you want to play a YouTube video. By accepting, you will be accessing content from YouTube, a service provided by an external third party.

If you accept this notice, your choice will be saved and the page will refresh.

  • The day after the release, we organised an “Ask us Anything” session on Reddit. TDF team and board members, along with community participants, answered questions, responded to ideas, and shared feedback about the new release. The Reddit post has over 33,000 views at the time of writing, so a big thanks to everyone who took part!
  • One week later, we looked at some statistics relating to the new version. LibreOffice 6.1 had been downloaded 373,758 times (for comparison, it’s 649,158 now). We had 274,916 visits to our website, 192,232 visits to our blog, and 21,347 impressions of the announcement tweet.

  • Meanwhile, the LibreOffice 6.0 branch continues to be maintained, and is recommended for enterprise deployments. Our hard-working documentation community released the LibreOffice 6.0 Writer Guide, with a general introduction to Writer followed by chapters about specific features. It’s available in ODT and PDF formats, and also in hard-copy (printed). If you find the documentation useful, you can give the community a hand!
  • Also in August, we showcased the results of the tender to implement of a HSQLDB binary format import in LibreOffice. Tenders are aimed at improving LibreOffice in several strategic areas, and documenting the approach and work carried out, to foster sharing of knowledge and inclusion of the wider volunteer community. Collabora was assigned this specific tender, and our blog post links to technical explanations from developer Tamás Bunth.
  • In the middle of the month, we chatted to Sam Tuke, a long-time Free Software supporter and campaigner, who helps the LibreOffice project in marketing and QA (quality assurance). We plan to post regular “Community Member Monday” interviews on this blog, so stay tuned!

  • Finally, our Taiwanese community reported back from the “LibreOffice Asia Meetup”, an event held in Taipei. The attendees included LibreOffice and other Free Software community members from Japan, Korea, Indonesia and Taiwan. Franklin Weng, TDF board member and one of the organisers, said: “Besides sharing our experiences of adopting ODF and using LibreOffice, we can also learn from many different countries and help each other”.

Keep in touch – follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Google+. Like what we do? Support our community with a donation – or join us and help us to make LibreOffice even better!

Official TDF Blog: LibreOffice Asia Meetup in A+A Space, Taipei, Taiwan

Community members from five different countries had a good time, and talked about holding a LibreOffice Asia Conference in the future

Event report by: Wally Lian, PR & Marketing Consultant, Software Liberty Association Taiwan

This summer is hot in Taiwan, and so are the FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) communities! From the end of July to the middle of August, there were several big FOSS events in Taiwan. The first one coming on stage was the Debian Conference, which was held in Taiwan and Asia for the first time, and lasted for two weeks. Then, this year three big Asian FOSS events of COSCUP, Gnome Asia Summit, and OpenSUSE Asia Summit decided to merge together and held an event at the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology on 11 and 12 August.

Besides these global and Asian FOSS events, there were also many interesting opportunities and plans going on. One of them was: LibreOffice community members in Asia planned to have a meetup during the joint COSCUP/Gnome Asia/OpenSUSE Asia event, and discussed holding a LibreOffice Asia Conference.

Before the meetup started, SLAT and A+A Space prepared a lot of food

This meetup was held in the evening on 11 August in A+A space, which is a nice and friendly space for FOSS communities, also a community made up of several artists who use FOSS as their tools to create their artwork. The attendees included LibreOffice and other FOSS community members from Japan, Korea, Indonesia and Taiwan.

The organizer, Franklin Weng, the current President of Software Liberty Association Taiwan and current board member of The Document Foundation, said that this meetup was an important milestone. “Now the Taiwanese government is going on adopting the Open Document Format and related office suites. It is very important to link our government and our people with international communities. Besides sharing our experiences of adopting ODF and using LibreOffice, we can also learn from many different countries and help each other,” said Franklin.

At the meetup, Franklin introduced the 30-second animation for LibreOffice Android Viewer, which was generated by LibreOffice Taiwan and A+A Space. He explained that the original idea was to raise the awareness of visual design in FOSS communities. Then he explained the meaning and special Easter eggs hidden in the animation, and showed a “behind the scenes” documentary for it. Then, the host of A+A Space, Michael Wu, introduced the wonderful work from A+A Space, including 3D graphs, 3D models, VR work, classes in universities, and so on.

During the meetup

Then everyone started to share their work and experiences. Rania Amina, who was responsible for visual design in the LibreOffice Conference Indonesia, showed his wonderful artwork to attendees. Ahmad Haris also shared his experiences holding LibreOffice Conference Indonesia, which was a huge success. Shinji Enoki shared the current status of Japanese support in LibreOffice, and many events held in Japan. Daehyun Sung introduced himself and shared some interesting things in Korea, including the system North Korea is using.

Also, Bobby Tung, a senior FOSS member in Taiwan who also contributed a lot to W3C standards, shared the current status of Unicode support for CJK. Kevin Lin, a LibreOffice Migration Professional in Taiwan, showed his work on LibreOffice Online and Web form API usage. Shelandy Ting shared his interesting artwork using Gimp.

After sharing, attendees split into different groups and talked with each other. During this meetup, members from Japan and Indonesia showed interest in holding a LibreOffice Asia Conference. Besides conferences, attendees also exchanged experiences migrating to LibreOffice in organizations and public administrations. We believe that the adoption of the Open Document Format and migrations to LibreOffice will advance hugely in Asia.

Mark Hung (Left 1st), Bobby Tung (Left 2nd) from Taiwan, Shinji Enoki (Right 2nd) from Japan, and Daehyun Sung (Right 1st) from Korea.

A big thanks to the LibreOffice communities in Asia for organising this event! If you love LibreOffice and want to help spread the word in your location or language, check out our native language communities. Together we can help to spread the word about free software and open standards!

LibreOffice 6.1 Released

The Document Foundation said on Wednesday it is releasing LibreOffice 6.1, the latest major update to its productivity suite. It is available to download for Linux, Windows, and macOS platforms. The new version offers, among other features, Colibre, a new icon theme for Windows based on Microsoft's icon design guidelines, which it says, makes the office suite visually appealing for users coming from the Microsoft environment. The Document Foundation also reworked the image handling feature on LibreOffice to make it "significantly faster and smoother thanks to a new graphic manager and an improved image lifecycle, with some advantages also when loading documents in Microsoft proprietary formats." Other new features and changes include: The reorganization of Draw menus with the addition of a new Page menu, for better UX consistency across the different modules. A major improvement for Base, only available in experimental mode: the old HSQLDB database engine has been deprecated, though still available, and the new Firebird database engine is now the default option (users are encouraged to migrate files using the migration assistant from HSQLDB to Firebird, or by exporting them to an external HSQLDB server). Significant improvements in all modules of LibreOffice Online, with changes to the user interface to make it more appealing and consistent with the desktop version. An improved EPUB export filter, in terms of link, table, image, font embedding and footnote support, with more options for customizing metadata. Online Help pages have been enriched with text and example files to guide the users through features, and are now easier to localize. LibreOffice 6.1's new features have been developed by a large community of code contributors: 72% of commits are from developers employed by companies sitting in the Advisory Board like Collabora, Red Hat and CIB and by other contributors such as SIL and Pardus, and 28% are from individual volunteers. In addition, there is a global community of individual volunteers taking care of other fundamental activities such as quality assurance, software localization, user interface design and user experience, editing of help system text and documentation, plus free software and open document standards advocacy at a local level. You can read the full changelog here. Here's a video that walks through the new features and changes that LibreOffice is receiving with v6.1.

Miklos Vajna: Improved ECDSA handling in LibreOffice

I wrote about ECDSA handling in LibreOffice last year, back then the target was to be able to verify signatures using the ECDSA algorithm on Linux.

Lots of things happened since then, this post is meant to summarize those improvements. My personal motivation is that Hungarian eID cards come with a gov-trusted ECDSA (x509) cert, so handling those in LibreOffice would be nice. My goals were:

  • platforms: handling Windows as well, not only Linux/macOS

  • operations: handling signing as well, not only verification

  • formats: cover all of ODF, OOXML and PDF

Let’s see what has happened:

  • Linux, ODF, sign: we had hardcoded RSA algorithm when generating a signature, now we infer the sign algorithm from the signing cert algorithm (commit)

  • Linux, OOXML, sign: same problem with hardcoded RSA (commit)

  • Windows, PDF, sign: the certificate chooser had to be ported to from CryptoAPI to CNG (commit)

  • Windows, ODF, verify / sign: this was the largest problem, this required a whole new libxmlsec backend (interface, implementation, all in C90) and also required conditionally using that new backend in LibreOffice (commit)

  • Windows, OOXML, sign: this was almost functional, except that the UI recently regressed, now fixed (commit)

  • Finally now that everything is ported on Windows to use CNG, I could enable it by default yesterday.

I could test hardware-based signing after this, which was fine out of the box on both platforms. Some screenshots:

(There is no reason why this would not work on macOS, but I did not test that.)

Thanks Gabor Kelemen who helped me to get a sane card reader that has reasonable driver support on Linux.

All this is available in master (towards LibreOffice 6.2), or you can grab a daily build and try it out right now. :-)

Andreas Mantke: First Research On The Migration Of ODFAuthors With Current Data

I looked into a migration of the ODFAuthors site to a current Plone version with the data from the website yesterday. It took me a lot of hours to figure out the most easy way to do this. I tried to migrate from LinguaPlone to the new multilingual Plone plug-in first, but without success. I could update the buildout inside a test environment with the new plug-in, but I wasn’t able to migrate the content to the new framework. And even I wasn’t able to get rid of LinguaPlone. I didn’t get the option to remove it. I got always a traceback and found some users that run into the same issue without a solution. Thus I had to change my strategy. I exported the content that I need to migrate, set up a new and clean Plone 4.3.x environment and tried to updated it to the latest version of 4.3. I had to do some editing on the buildout and had to drop some Plone add-ons from the current buildout script of ODFAuthors. Once I had done this the buildout runs fine and I got a clean new Plone environment. Then I added the plug-ins plone.app.contenttypes and Products.contentmigration to the buildout script and run buildout again. I started the Plone instance, created a new Plone site and imported the content (exported from the current ODFAuthors site).
I activated the plug-in plone.app.contenttypes and run the migration scripts from Products.contentmigration. I had to migrate more than 4200 content objects and took a fair amount of time. But in the end the migration from the old Archetype content types to the new Dexterity ones was successful.
The next step would be the migration of the instance from Plone 4.3.x to Plone 5.0.x or 5.1.x.

Andreas Mantke: First Step To Improve ODFAuthors

If the website ODFAuthors should be improved for the future use the first step would be the change of the localization framework from the old LinguaPlone to the current
plone.app.multilingual and migrate and reindex all content objects. It’s not possible to update the site to the latest Plone without that step.
I already created a Plone buildout for an upgraded ODFAuthors website that is based on version 5.1.x. This buildout is available from the Github repository of The Document Foundation: https://github.com/tdf/odfauthors.org

An Antic Disposition

Downsized

As of today, June 27th, I am no longer working for IBM.  Last quarter’s widely-reported “resource actions” (lay-offs) hit my group and this time my number came up.

It was a good run, 27 years with one company, something that is not so common today.

Fresh out of Harvard I started working at Lotus Development Corporation in Cambridge, Massachusetts, initially doing technical support, including for the Lotus 1‑2-3 C-language developer toolkit.  From there I worked in support’s application development team, developing and maintaining our internal information retrieval system, a hodgepodge of a DOS user-interface, a search engine (using a Bayesian inference network) and a fax-on-demand system, all over NetBIOS.

From support I transitioned over to development, to the SmartSuite team, where I first focused on Freelance Graphics, which was transitioning from C to C++, Windows and OS/2, then on a set of Windows ActiveX controls called eSuite DevPack, some Java components and attempts at an office suite running on a Java-based “thin client” or network computer (eSuite Workplace.)  It was a time when the thinking, at least in my little part of the world, was that the traditional desktop applications were dead, and all future work would be done in Java running on your desktop web browser. From this came the browser wars.

Then, in 1995, IBM came a knocking and bought Lotus.  Our focus, naturally, shifted from desktop to server-based computing, from Java applets to Java servlets.  I worked on various projects, from the K-Station Portal (based initially on Domino) to the Apache Xalan XSLT engine to XForms to WebSphere Portal.  I developed a framework for document conversions within WebSphere Portal that we called Document Conversion Services (DCS).

Then, one day, I got an odd call, out of the blue, a very senior person asking whether I was familiar with the file formats from SmartSuite and Microsoft Office.  Evidently, no one else in the company would admit to having that arcane knowledge.  So, I was drafted onto a “special project,” with a few other talented engineers, a real fun group working on various stealthy tasks, the details of which I am still not at liberty to discuss.

Somewhat overlapping the above, I worked on the things that readers of this blog will be more familiar with, the development of the OpenDocument Format (ODF) standard at OASIS and ISO, and the arguments against ISO ratification of Microsoft’s Office Open XML (OOXML) file format.  This then overlapped, in part, with my work to establish the OpenOffice project at Apache, based on Oracle’s contribution, to get IBM Symphony contributed as well, and to bring those two efforts together.

Those years were among the most memorable of my career.  I was able to work with a lot of talented and enthusiastic people, within IBM, of course, but also at other companies, with non-profits, with academia and government.  I was able travel and see parts of the world I might never have otherwise seen, speak to a lot of audiences about the importance of open standards.  I even testified to a few legislative committees.  My business travels took me to Brussels, Berlin, Budapest, Barcelona, Granada, London, Paris, Lyon, Rome, Orvietto, Geneva, Amsterdam, the Hague, Beijing, Seoul and Johannesburg.  It was a lot of hard work, but it was meaningful. Open standards and open source matter.  I have many fond memories of those years.

Eventually, however, corporate interest in document editors, document standards, “social documents” and similar initiatives fizzled, and I no longer had support for remaining involved in ODF and OpenOffice.  I needed to move on, to find a new gig.

I looked internally within IBM for something that would combine my hard technical skills and my soft skills, including working closely with attorneys, an ability to “meet them half way” when discussing complicated legal/technical topics.  Since I’ve been an active inventor throughout my IBM career, with 54 patents to my name, and a good head for reading and analyzing patents, I spent a few years working as a patent engineer, helping to monetize IBM’s vast patent portfolio, developing technical evidence for infringement, identifying possibilities for patent licencing and assignment, etc.

That’s where things stood as of today, when I handed in my badge and laptop.

As for what is next, I honestly cannot yet say what “Rob 2.0” will be.  I plan on taking some time to mull things over and explore my options.

One thing I do plan to do, relatively soon, is start a new blog, a fresh start, on a new path at this domain, preserving this older blog at its current (/blog) URL.

Official TDF Blog: Image handling rework for LibreOffice – Collabora’s tender results

Donations to The Document Foundation are used for many purposes, such as organising events, maintaining our infrastructure, and paying a small team to handle QA, marketing, documentation and other tasks. But donations are also used to fund tenders, whereby companies and individuals improve LibreOffice in specific areas and share knowledge with the community.

One such tender was posted in May 2017: “improve image handling in LibreOffice (#201705-01)“. When images are used in LibreOffice documents, the software manages them in a “life-cycle” which includes importing, displaying, modifying, exporting and more. To save memory – especially with large documents – images that are not currently on screen are sometimes moved out of memory and saved onto disk in a technique known as “swapping” or “paging”. The goal of the tender was to improve LibreOffice in these areas, making it more efficient at handling images and modernising the code base.

Collabora was selected to implement the tender; the work is now complete, and it will benefit all users in the upcoming LibreOffice 6.1 (due to be released in early August). Here are some technical notes about what was improved in the source code of LibreOffice, and what was achieved.

Problems with the image life-cycle

Currently, when an image is read from a document, a GraphicObject is created for the image and handled over to the GraphicManager which manages the life-cycle. When this happens we usually get back the string based unique ID of the GraphicObject with which we can always get access the image by creating a new GraphicObject with the unique ID (GraphicManager will look for the image with that unique ID).

Usually the unique ID is the one that is passed on between layers in LibreOffice (for example, from the ODF filter when loaded, to the model, where it is manipulated and then to the OOXML filter when saving) but the unique ID itself is just a “reference” to the image and by itself it doesn’t have any control over when the image can safely be removed and when not. It could happen that in a certain situation we would still have the unique ID referenced somewhere in the model, but the image would already be removed. This is dangerous and needs to be changed.

Usually for this kind of object we use a reference counting technique, where we pass an object around that holds a reference to the object resource. When the object is created, the reference count is increased; when destroyed, the reference count is decreased; when the reference count reaches zero, the resource object is destroyed.

The solution for the life-cycle

So instead of passing around a unique ID, the idea is to use the usual reference counting technique, which is normally used in this situation. The GraphicObject is mainly a wrapper around Graphic (which then holds a pixel-based image, or animated image, or possibly a vector image), and in addition it keeps additional attributes (gamma, crop, transparency etc.). It also has the implementation of swapping-in and out.

On the other hand, Graphic is properly reference-counted already (Graphic objects are reference counting the private ImpGraphic) so the solution to the life-cycle problem is that instead of GraphicObject unique ID, we would just pass along the Graphic object instead, or XGraphic, XBitmap which are just UNO wrappers around Graphic. Potentially we could also pass along the GraphicObject or XGraphicObject (UNO wrapper for the GraphicObject) when we would need to take into account the graphic attributes too. This should make the life-cycle much more manageable.

GraphicObject refactoring

GraphicObject and the implementation of XGraphicObject (UnoGraphicObject) and XGraphic (UnoGraphic) were located in module svtools, which is hierarchically above vcl. This is problematic when creating new instances like in Graphic.GetXGraphic method, which needs to bend backward to make it even work (ugly hack by sending the pointer value as URL string to GraphicProvider). The solution to this is to move all GraphicObject related things to vcl, which surprisingly didn’t cause a lot problem and once done, it looks like a much more “natural” place.

Managing memory used by images

Previously, the memory managing was done on the level of GraphicObjects, where a GraphicManager and Graphic-Cache were responsible to create new instances from uniqueID and manage the memory usage that GraphicObject take. Here’s the hierarchy before refactoring:

This is not possible anymore as we don’t operate with uniqueIDs anymore, but always use Graphic and XGraphic objects (in UNO), so we need to manage the creation of Graphic object or more precisely – ImpGraphic (Graphic objects are just reference-counted objects of ImpGraphic).

So to make this possible GraphicManager and GraphicCache need to be decoupled and removed from GraphicObject and a new manager needs to be introduced between Graphic and ImpGraphic, where the manager controls the creation and accounts for the memory usage:

Graphic swapping and swapping strategy

The new swapping strategy is relatively simple – if a lot of memory is needed by graphic objects in a certain time, we let it use it and don’t try to over-aggressively try to free it. In the past this cased swap-out and swap-in cycle that made the application completely unusable. In the future, external hints when a certain Graphic object can be swapped out may be added, so we can perform swapping more effectively. There are also several other ideas which will increase performance and reduce memory usage that can be implemented now with the new hierarchy where most all of the swapping is contained inside the Graphic itself, but all of this is currently out of the scope of this work.

In conclusion

Thanks to Collabora and TomaĹž Vajngerl for their work on this. Although the details are highly technical, the end result is a faster and more robust office suite. If you’re an end user of LibreOffice and your documents include lots of images, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of this work in future releases, starting with LibreOffice 6.1.

Andreas Mantke: New Buildout For ODFAuthors Nearly Finished

I worked very hard on the new Plone buildout for the ODFAuthors website during the last days. I nearly finished the buildout today. I created a new policy and a theming product for the site. I added a template for the frontpage of the new website and am waiting for the input about the content, that the new frontpage should show.

I also need some suggestions on the new publication workflow of the site. The Plone workflow tool is able to run very subtle grained ones.  The Plone Content Management System is also able to send automatic messages on all events like changing the workflow state.

Andreas Mantke: Creating A New Plone Development Environment

I worked on the first bits for a new Plone development environment. I’ll use this to create a new website for the ODFAuthors team. The new site should run on Plone 5.1 or later. Maybe it is possible to upgrade the site to a Plone version that runs on Python 3.

I read already on a blog of a Plone developer that Core-Plone is already ported to Python 3, but that there are a big bunch of tests that are not yet ported and need some love (and work time).

Miklos Vajna: Editing ReqIF-XHTML fragments in LibreOffice Writer

I worked on a small feature to use Writer as an editor for the XHTML fragments inside Requirements Interchange Format (ReqIF) files. First, thanks to Vector for funding Collabora to make this possible.

Writer already supported XHTML import and export before (see my previous post) as a special mode of the HTML filter, this work builds on top of that. The main speciality around XHTML as used for fragments inside a ReqIF file is embedded objects.

The special mode to opt-in for ReqIF-XHTML behavior can actived like this:

  • during import: --infilter="HTML (StarWriter):xhtmlns=reqif-xhtml"

  • during export: -convert-to "xhtml:HTML (StarWriter):xhtmlns=reqif-xhtml"

Three different cases are handled:

  1. Image with native data we don’t understand and just preserve.

  2. Image with OLE2 data, which we hand out to external applications (at least on Windows). On the above video this is an embedded PPSX file, handled by PowerPoint.

  3. Image with ODF data, which we handle internally. This is a Draw document on the above video.

Regarding how it works, the import is a series of unwrapping containers till you get to the real data and the export is the opposite of this. Here are the layers:

  • Larger ReqIF files have the .reqifz extension, and are ZIP files containing an XML file, having the XHTML fragments. This is not relevant for this post, as Writer assumes that extracting the XHTML fragment from ReqIF is done before you load the content into Writer.

  • XHTML always has a PNG image for the object, and optionally it has RTF as native data for the object.

  • The RTF file is a fragment, containing just an embedded OLE1 container.

  • The OLE1 container is just a wrapper around the real OLE2 container.

  • The OLE2 container either has the data directly or MSO has a convention on how to include OOXML files in it (see the PPSX example above), and we handle that.

On export we do the opposite: save the file, put it into OLE2, then into OLE1, then into RTF, finally into XHTML.

There is no specification on how to put ODF files into OLE2, so I extracted the relevant code from LibreOffice’s binary MSO filters and now the Writer HTML filter uses that as well. This avoids code duplication and also could avoid inventing some new markup this way.

All this is available in master (towards LibreOffice 6.2), or you can grab a daily build and try it out right now. :-)

Thorsten Behrens: LibreOffice Hamburg Hackfest – a retrospective

Let me join Mike, Miklos and Bjรถrn in the blog reporting on last month’s LibreOffice Hackfest in Hamburg (a good old tradition):

LibreOffice Python hacking

With a nice round number of 100000 (decimal 32) participants and surprisingly non-rainy and warm April weather in Hamburg, we met at very stylish freiheit.com offices that also generously provided us with food and beverages. Further shout-outs to TDF (and all its donors) for providing travel support for our volunteers and, equally importantly, sponsoring CIB’s very own Armin Le Grand fulltime mentoring on and off site.

You can find more details on contributions and work done on the event’s wiki page, and also for the simultaneous German community meetup (wiki, blog); just as much here: code-wise, we had 55 commits from hackfest participants over the weekend –

11  Zdenฤ�k Crhonek
 9  Stephan Bergmann
 5  Christian Lohmaier
 5  Katarina Behrens
 5  Sophia Schrรถder
 4  Armin Le Grand
 3  Michael Meeks
 3  Tamas Bunth
 3  Heiko Tietze
 2  Markus Mohrhard
 2  Miklos Vajna
 1  Linus Behrens
 1  Nithin Kumar Padavu

and probably another 15 or so landing in the weeks after, but with substantial work carried out during the hackfest. I’m really quite happy with the outcome, as well as with the number of new and old names in the above list!

I’d like to highlight one particular area of work (as it’s not reflected yet in the list above i.e. no commits on master yet), namely Regina’s ongoing endeavour to improve LibreOffice ODF conformance (or alternatively the ODF specification, if instead she believes LibreOffice gets it right and the spec has it wrong). This is especially noteworthy as it’s purely volunteer work, including weekly attendance and contribution to ODF technical committee phone meetings. Regina spent the weekend poring over LibreOffice drawing subsystem minutiae with CIB’s Armin Le Grand, and in the end wrote up a plan on making the layer functionality in Draw/Impress more useful and compliant to how ODF specifies layers: Make drawing layers ODF conform .

For myself, I (almost) didn’t get any hacking done but instead spent time mentoring, getting face time with many people, providing hackers with (mostly double) espressos, and had a handful of quite excellent discussions that only tend to happen with enough of smart people in the same room:

  • discussed opportunities around GPG signing and encryption for the public sector with Lothar Becker
  • pondered the future of application development (electron vs. browser-only vs. native ports – and all kinds of in-betweens) with Tim, Michael, and Benjamin
  • got the latest news around autocrypt, memory hole and delta.chat from Bjรถrn Petersen
  • went through a number of sticky problems TDF is facing with regard to upcoming GDPR end of May, with K-J, Uwe, Florian and Eike.
    • BTW for the record, I consider GDPR a broadly good thing & not an undue burden, and a useful motivation also for volunteer and charity organisations to live up to some data protection ideals.

And last but not least thanks to Armin, Bubli, Michael and Siegmund for being the local CIB posse on the ground for that hackfest; and of course thanks to CIB for letting us have such an outstanding LibreOffice team – and to all volunteers donating a full weekend to LibreOffice!

Here are some impressions from the event (thx to Sweetshark for sharing his pictures – that work is (C) 2018 Bjรถrn Michaelsen, as noted in the image description):

Official TDF Blog: LibreOffice monthly recap: April 2018

Lots of things are happening in the LibreOffice community – in development, documentation, design, QA, translations and much more. Here’s a summary of news and updates in April…

  • LibreOffice 6.0.3 was released on April 3. It includes over 70 bug and regression fixes – see the release announcement for more details.
  • From April 6 – 8, we had a LibreOffice community meeting and Hackfest in Hamburg. There were around 45 participants, who split into two groups. One group focused on a hackfest – a joint coding session. At the same time, a meeting of the German-speaking LibreOffice community took place. See here for the results of the hackfest, and what we discussed.

  • We talked to Edmund Laugasson from the Estonian LibreOffice community about his efforts to promote free and open source software in his country. “ODF is quite widely used in Estonia – for instance, educational institutions usually have LibreOffice installed, along with some local authorities.”Full interview here.
  • Preparation began for the Month of LibreOffice, May 2018 – crediting contributions all across the project. If you’re a proud user of LibreOffice and would like to join our community, get involved! (We’ll even send you a cool sticker pack.)

  • The next LibreOffice Conference will take place from September 26 – 28 in Tirana, Albania, and TDF put out a call for papers. All members and contributors are invited to submit talks, lectures and workshops for the conference – see here for more info.

  • Finally, we gave a warm welcome to our new Google Summer of Code 2018 students. We have a record off 11 students this year, and they will help to improve LibreOffice in many areas: the LOEclipse Plugin, Notebookbar, LibreOffice Viewer for Android and more. So a big hello to Daniel Silva, Ekansh Jha, Hrishabh Rajput, Kshitij Pathania, Manuj Vashist, Muammer Mert Tümer, Nickson Thanda, Raghav Lalvani, Saurav Chirania, Shobhan Mandal and Vikas Mahato!

Tomaž Vajngerl: Improving the image handling in LibreOffice - Part 3

GraphicObject refactoring


GraphicObject and the implementation of XGraphicObject (UnoGraphicObject) and XGraphic (UnoGraphic) were located in module svtools, which is hierarchically above vcl. This is problematic when creating new instances like in Graphic.GetXGraphic method, which needs to bend backward to make it even work (ugly hack by sending the pointer value as URL string to GraphicProvider). The solution to this is to move all GraphicObject related things to vcl, which surprisingly didn't cause a lot problem and once done, it looks like a much more "natural" place.

Regarding the UNO API of XGraphicObject - what is left to do here is to properly clean up the uniqueID, as it is not possible to use it anymore for anything else as a uniqueID (used only in filters for the image names, if the name is not yet known).

Managing memory used by images


Figure1: Hierarchy before refactoring


Previously the memory managing was done on the level of GraphicObjects, where a GraphicManager and GraphicCache (see figure 1) were responsible to create new instances from uniqueID and manage the memory usage that GraphicObject take. This is not possible anymore as we don't operate with uniqueIDs anymore, but always use Graphic and XGraphic objects  (in UNO), so we need to manage the creation of Graphic object or more precisely - ImpGraphic (Graphic objects are just ref. counted objects of ImpGraphic). 
Figure 2: Hierarchy after refactoring
So to make this possible GraphicManager and GraphicCache need to be decoupled and removed from GraphicObject and a new manager needs to be introduced between Graphic and ImpGraphic, where the manager controls the creation and accounts for the memory usage (see Figure 2).

Graphic swapping and swapping strategy


In the To release the memory of graphic objects, we swap them out to a temp file and read back (swap-in) when we need them again. In the previous implementation this was partially directed by the SdrGrafObj (common image implementation) and SwGrfNode (Writer image implementation). For each graphic object there was a timer when to trigger an automatic swap-out + the swap-out that can happen when a memory limit is exceeded.

For the new code external swapping directed from SdrGrafObj and SwGrfNode was removed, so they can't influence when swapping will happen (maybe in the future they can provide hints when it is a good time to do swapping). There is now a global timer which triggers checking of all Graphic objects if any of them can be swapped out in case we exceed memory limit. Same code is triggered when a new object is created too. A object will be swapped out if it is not used for a certain amount of time. Each object tracks the timestamp when it was last used.

A swap-in happens if the object is swapped-out (obviously) and certain data is needed (under-laying bitmap, animation or metafile). This is checked at the same code-path where the timestamp updating happens.

The new swapping strategy is relatively simple - if a lot of memory is needed by graphic objects in a certain time, we let it use it and don't try to over-aggressively try to free it. In the past this cased swap-out and swap-in cycle that made the application completely unusable. In the future, external hints when a certain Graphic object can be swapped out may be added, so we can perform swapping more effectively. There are also several other ideas which will increase performance and reduce memory usage that can be implemented now with the new hierarchy where most all of the swapping is contained inside the Graphic itself, but all of this is currently out of the scope of this work.

Other changes to Graphic


Another changes to Graphic done were related to lazy loading. When a document is loaded, we don't want to load Graphic into memory, if it is not needed yet (for example we display the first page but the graphic is on page 10). In document filters (ODF for example) we previously transported the URL of an external or internal graphic to the document model, where it was lazily loaded when it was actually needed. This is not possible now anymore as we need to create a XGraphic object already in the document filter. To overcome this we need to to have an unloaded Graphic, which is created already in a swapped-out state and swapped-in when needed.

The GraphicFilter didn't allow something like this, so I needed to add a new method, which doesn't actually load the image, but just gathers what kind of the image is loaded and its metadata (image size) and creates a GfxLink object that includes the (compressed) image data. The metadata is needed as we don't want to actually force a load when this basic information is requested. Actually we want to load the image as late as this is possible.

Another issue is also that we can have an external image (loaded from a file or even URL on the internet). The issue is similar to the lazy loading scenario, but it is different that a Graphic now must know the URL with which it was created and can be created completely empty (no loading of any kind). The reason for this is that loading is directed by the LinkManager, which is part of the document model. For security reasons the LinkManager can not allow that a Graphic is loaded so loading is directed by the LinkManager on demand (first usage). LinkManager also takes care of all URLs of various external resources. The user can look at those resources and change the URL of them or trigger an update. Changing URL and updating an object was previously done in SdrGrafObj and SwGrfNode, but now this is moved to the common code in Graphic object where SdrGrafObj and SwGrfNode only direct what to do. There are still rooms to improve things here, however not the scope of this work.

Next steps


Finishing up this work by revising the UNO API and fixing known bugs.

Official TDF Blog: LibreOffice Community Meeting and Hackfest in Hamburg: the results

The LibreOffice community communicates mainly over the internet, using our mailing lists, IRC channels and other services. But it’s often good to meet in person, to discuss ideas face-to-face, tackle problems together, and enjoy good company over food and drinks! And from April 6 – 8, in Hamburg, we did just that‌

Friday: Meet and Greet

Some participants arrived early and had a chance to explore the fascinating Hanseatic city of Hamburg, with its river, canals and lake in the centre (Binnenalster, shown below). In the evening we sampled local food at the Groeninger Privatbrauerei.


(Picture: Thomas Ulrich)

Saturday and Sunday: Hackfest

Starting on Saturday, we had around 45 participants, who split into two groups. One group focused on a hackfest – that is, a joint coding session for fixing bugs, working on new features and sharing information. Here’s a summary of the achievements from each participant:

  • Miklos Vajna: mostly mentored Patrick, Nithin, Linus and ZdenÄ›k (aka raal)
  • Michael Stahl: mentored Nithin and remote participant Heiko; worked with Christian Lohmeier to install a GUI text editor as an alternative to Emacs and Vim; reviewed some old Gerrit patches; and investigated regression tdf#77919 (it was already fixed on master but it wasn’t obvious how)
  • Regina Henschel: worked on the topic “Make drawing layers ODF conformant”
  • TamĂĄs Bunth: mostly worked on HSQLDB migration; also picked a random Firebird-related bug
  • Heiko Tietze: solved (remotely) issues with inline tooltips on tracked changes, with help from Michael Stahl
  • Michael Meeks: tweaked, reviewed and merged patch(es) for a 5-10x speedup for VLOOKUP
  • Xisco Fauli: spent most of his time trying to make LibreOffice Viewer work on Android emulator; also showed Marina Latini how to create a bisect repository from scratch
  • Markus Mohrhard: reviewed patches for ZdenÄ›k, and analysed a Calc memory corruption issue
  • Patrick Jaap: worked on tdf#115094, a bug relating to misplaced images in tables when importing .docx files
  • J-NA: worked on fixing up sw uitests with Linus
  • Marina Latini: fixed Italian translation typos; worked on fixing a GPG problem
  • Nithin: worked with Miklos on adding line feeds to section styles
  • Linus Behrens: improved sw uitests, making them more pythonic with J-NA; removing unused includes
  • Lothar Becker: explained the LibreOffice certification programme to Silva from the Albanian community
  • ZdenÄ›k Crhonek (raal): looked at building the LibreOffice Viewer app for Android
  • Jan-Marek Glogowski: worked on font problems in the Qt5 backend
  • Tim Janik: talked to people, discussing toolkits and technology
  • Sophia SchrĂśder: fixing up help, and some translation work
  • Stephan Bergmann: mentored people; worked on fixing regressions with UBSAN, and fixing repaint issue in basic IDE
  • Rheinhard: observed and interacted, as he’s writing about open source communities

So lots of great work from everyone involved – thanks so much for your contributions! The hackfest showed that meeting face-to-face is really effective for fixing issues and sharing information.

German community meeting

At the same time as the hackfest, a meeting of the German-speaking LibreOffice community took place. Last year we met in Berlin (text in German) to discuss various ideas and issues in the project, especially from a German-language perspective, and we followed them up this year to see what progress had been made.

Specifically, we talked about attending more conferences in the German-speaking region, with a more targeted focus: instead of just telling people what LibreOffice is (which most Linux users already know, for instance), we should focus more clearly on bringing in potential new contributors.

Then we turned to the topic of education. It was noted that the Citavi citation software no longer works with LibreOffice 6, and the community lacks materials that could be used to create courses (both online and in schools) about LibreOffice.

We also discussed having more regular face-to-face meetups. Silva Arapi from the Albanian community shared her experiences, but in a larger country like Germany, it’s difficult to get everyone together in the same place. So one idea was to organise more local events, like the Duisburg “Stammtisch” run by Andreas Mantke.

Finally, we set up some “action items”, including the creation of a new “Get involved” flyer for events, and a German translation of the “Get involved” page on the website.

Wrapping up

On the whole, it was a fun and productive event, with some familiar faces, some new faces, and lots of coding, ideas and proposals. Many thanks also to Bjoern Michaelsen and Thorsten Behrens for organising the event, serving up coffee and mentoring developers. And another big thanks to freiheit.com who generously hosted us – and even let us play on their pool table!

We plan to run more hackfests and local community events in the future, so keep an eye on this blog and our social media channels to hear about them: Twitter, Google+ and Facebook!

Collabora Community: Using Collabora Online to accelerate document conversion

Nowadays we have different ways of converting our documents, using different tools that are available online. One option is JODConverter: (for Java OpenDocument Converter) a widely used tool that automates document conversions. Supported formats include OpenDocument, PDF, HTML, Microsoft Office formats (DOC/DOCX/RTF, XLS/XLSX, PPT/PPTX) and many others. Usage can be as a Java library, a command line tool, or a web application. Traditionally the JODConverter uses a LibreOffice process for its conversion but newer versions of JODConverter can use Collabora Online directly.*

We built a dedicated page on our website explaining why you should consider switching to either the Collabora Online backend or more simply talk directly to Collabora Online itself.

What are the main benefits of using Collabora Online for document conversion?

  • Improved performance compared to startup-convert-shutdown approach;
  • The REST API is more reliable than starting LibreOffice in server mode and communicating via remote UNO;
  • More secure because the conversion happens in an isolated environment and this layered approach protects your infrastructure (from outer to inner layers):
    • It is easy to run it in a Virtual Machine / Docker Container;
    • Document data isolation into per-document chroots;
    • Seccomp-bpf: inside that chroot (almost) no system calls are allowed;
    • Extremely sparse filesystem inside the chroot: no shell etc.

For more details checkout our page that explains more about the benefits, performance, and how to try out JODConverter with its Collabora Online backend. If you have questions, feel free to send us an email.

Check it out!

Official TDF Blog: LibreOffice contributor interview: Edmund Laugasson

Edmund Laugasson

LibreOffice is being used in governments and companies around the world, and this is largely thanks to support and advocacy from local communities and developers. Today we’re talking to Edmund Laugasson, a member of the Estonian LibreOffice community, who is promoting the software and the Open Document Format (ODF) in his country‌

How popular is Free, Libre and Open Source Software (FLOSS) and LibreOffice in Estonia?

To be honest, it has not yet been deeply investigated, but the Estonian Ministry of Economic Affairs and Communications has published a “State Information System Interoperability Framework” (in Estonian) where clearly ODF is the main format suggested to use. The status of OOXML is only “allowed”. OOXML should not be confused with the file formats used by MS Office, which differs from OOXML by several proprietary changes. Even LibreOffice offers two different versions to save, e.g. docx – one is OOXML and the another one is used in MS Word. The same applies also to rest of OOXML, MS Office formats that coexist in LibreOffice. As the status of ODF is “suggested”, it is not mandatory. Despite that, ODF is quite widely used – for instance, educational institutions usually have LibreOffice installed, along with some local authorities.

Research is quite challenging as people usually do not respond to questionnaires, and researchers need to meet people directly in order to get reliable answers to questions.

What is your background and involvement in FLOSS?

I live in a small city called Rapla in Estonia, but I work as a lecturer at IT College, which is part of the Tallinn University of Technology. I am involved in FLOSS in many ways. When teaching, I use FLOSS as much as possible: the operating system in university is Ubuntu Linux, and I use derivates like Linux Mint MATE, all 64-bit and the latest LTS (Long Term Support) versions. The office suite is LibreOffice everywhere under GNU/Linux but under MS Windows next to MS Office. It is very important to have LibreOffice installed on every operating system that is used. Also, at least ODF file formats should be opened by LibreOffice by default. Then it would be much easier to deploy ODF in future when the ground is prepared properly. We have a dual-boot system (Microsoft Windows 10 and Ubuntu Linux 16.04.4), and in one classroom also a triple-boot (with macOS 10.12).

In addition I am involved as a board member of the Estonian Free and Open-Source Software Association, taking care of FLOSS in general in Estonia. Also I am involved in the Network of Estonian Teachers of Informatics and Computer Science (NETICS) as a board member. There I promote FLOSS – LibreOffice in particular – to encourage people to use it.
The next involvement is my doctoral studies at Tallinn University, where the current topic is “Technology approval as a factor of adopting a free software ecosystem”.

Further activities will come when I graduate and can focus more on wider deployments of FLOSS, particularly LibreOffice. I have serious plans to arrange all this, but as people in Estonia are not very cooperative, it takes more time – regardless of the fact that Estonia is small. Lots of people just do not believe in better future full of FLOSS, and those few who still believe, will act towards that goal. So to anyone who feels the FLOSS spark inside: do not hesitate to contact me.

What do you think are the biggest obstacles to wider FLOSS and LibreOffice adoption in Estonia?

My first paper in 2013 (published at the IFIP conference) showed that awareness of FLOSS is still relatively low, but interest in getting more information is quite high. Microsoft is doing relatively strong lobbying work, also in Estonia, and the government has quite weak power regarding FLOSS. There is also sometimes controversial behaviour: five state-arranged procurements in the FLOSS field (four state procurements relating to LibreOffice, one state procurement to create an interoperability framework), but weak activities around FLOSS in general. So I decided to start my doctoral studies to fix this situation in a scientific (weighted) way.

Thanks to Edmund for his time and effort helping the FLOSS cause. Click here to see many more interviews from LibreOffice contributors – and why not become one yourself! Build up skills, join a friendly community, and help to make LibreOffice better for everyone.
