Jos van den Oever elected new co-chair ODF TC

Jos van den Oever is the new co-chair of the Open Document Format Technical Committee within OASIS, the technical body that determines the key standards for the interoperability of office applications.Van den Oever works for the Dutch Ministry of the Interior. The other co-chair is Patrick Durusau, who is also one of the editors of the standard.

As a renowned technical expert, architect and software engineer, Van den Oever lauded for his broad expertise in the field. He has been part of the ODF technical committee since 2006, although he was involved with ODF before that. During his career he has been a key factor in numerous open source projects, such as WebODF, Calligra, KOffice, KDE and Strigi.

Van den Oever's appointment followed an offical election within the ODF TC after Oliver-Rainer Wittman announced that he would step down as co-chair at the end of last month. Wittman is an IBM Advisory Software Engineer with a long career working for SUN Microsystems and Oracle. On behalf of the ODF community, we want to thank Oliver-Rainer for his hard work and important contributions over the years.

ODF 1.2 published as ISO 26300:2015

ISO IEC logo

ISO/IEC have published International Standard 26300-1:2015, better known as the Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) Version 1.2. ODF defines a technical schema for office documents including text documents, spreadsheets, charts and graphical documents like drawings or presentations.

The OpenDocument Format standard is developed by the OASIS consortium. The current version was published already some time ago, in 2011, after which the standard was formally submitted to ISO/IECT in 2014. Currently the standard is currently available as a paid download (in three parts: the schema, formula definition and packages) from the website of ISO/IEC, but as with the previous version of the standard it should be added soon to the repository of Publicly Available Standards as a free download.

Meanwhile, if you want to read the standard you can download the Open Document Format v1.2 standard (available as ODF (authoritative), PDF, and HTML) from the OASIS ODF TC website. These versions should be identical.

 

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 34 is the international standardization subcommittee for Document Description and Processing Languages standards and technical reports related to structured markup languages (specifically the Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML) and the Extensible Markup Language (XML)) in the areas of information description, processing and association.

ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 34 WG 6 (OpenDocument Format) is concerned with All SC 34 projects and activities relating to the maintenance of ISO/IEC 26300 OpenDocument Format. It collaborates with the OASIS ODF TC in the maintenance of and other work exclusively related to ISO/IEC 26300, in accordance with the maintenance principles and procedures jointly agreed by OASIS and JTC 1. This includes all projects and activities related to ISO/IEC 26300 previously carried out by WG 1 and Ad Hoc Group 3.

Alan Horkan: SK1 Print Design adding support for Palettes (Colour Swatches)

SK1 Print Design is an interesting project. They found the vector graphics program Sketch was useful to their business, and maintained their own customized version, eventually becoming a project all of their own. I'm not involved with SK1 Print Design myself but I do follow their newsfeed on Facebook, where they regularly post information about their work.

They have added import and export support for a variety of Colour Palettes, including SOC (StarOffice Colours, i.e. the OpenDocument standard used by OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice) and CorelDraw XML Palettes and more. For users who already have CorelDraw this should allow them to reuse their existing Pantone palettes.

They are also continuing their work to merge their SK1 and PrintDesign branches. The next release seems very promising.

Protocols Plugfest Europe 2015

Last week I had the pleasure of speaking at Protocols Plugfest Europe 2015.  It was really good to get out of the bubble of free software desktops where the community love makes it tempting to think we’re the most important thing in the world and experience the wider industry where of course we are only a small player.

This conferences, and its namesakes in the US, are sponsored by Microsoft among others and there’s obviously a decent amount of money in it, the venue is a professional conference venue and there’s a team of people making sure small but important details are taken care of like printed signposts to the venue.

What’s it all About?

In 2008 Microsoft lost an EU antitrust case because they had abused their monopoly position in operating systems.  This required them to document their file formats such as MS Office and protocols such as SMB.  This conference is part of that EU requirement meaning they have to work with anyone who wants to use their formats and protocols.  They have a website where you can file a request for information on any of their documents and protocols and everyone said they were very responsive in assigning engineers getting answers.

Since 2008 Microsoft have lost a lot of ground in new areas in the industry such as mobile and cloud.  Because they’re not the dominant player here they realise they have to use formats and protocols others can use too otherwise they lock themselves out.

The Talks

I spoke about Interoperability on the Linux Desktop which seemed well received, the reason Linux desktop hasn’t taken off is there are many other systems we need to interoperate with and many of them don’t want to interoperate with us. (Of course there are financial reasons too.) It was well received with many people thanking me for a good talk.

I went to talks by people working on Samba, LibreOffice and Kolab which all gave pleasing insight into how these project work and what they have to do to workaround complex proprietary protocols and formats.  LibreOffice explained how they work with OpenDocument, they add feature and for any feature added they submit a request for it to be added to the standard.  It’s a realistic best practice alternative.

I went to a bunch of Microsoft talks too about changes in their file formats, protocols and use of their cloud service Azure.

The inter-talks

It was great meeting some people from the free software and MS worlds at the conference.  I spoke to Christopher about how he had been hired to document SMB for MS, to Dan about taking over the world, to Miklos about LibreOffice and many others.  On the MS side I spoke to Tom about file formats, Darryl about working with Linux, to Jingyu about developing in MS.

I hope I won’t offend anyone to say that there’s a notable culture difference between the open source and the MS sides.  Open Source people really do dress scruffy and act socially awkward.  MS people reminded me of the bosses in Walter Mitty, strong handshakes, strong smiles and neat dress.

culture difference

One part of the culture that depressingly wasn’t difference was the gender ratio, there was only half a dozen women there and half of those were organising staff.

The Microsoft people seemed pretty pleased at how they were open and documented their protocols and formats, but it never occurred to them to use existing standards.  When I asked why they invented OOXML instread of using OpenDocument I was told it was “MS Office’s standard”.  When I asked if Skype protocols were open they seemed not to know.  It probably doesn’t come under the EU court requirements so it doesn’t interest them, but then all their talk of openness is for nothing.  When I suggested Skype should talk XMPP so we can use it with Telepathy I was given largely blank faces in return.

Talking to Samba people and OpenChange people about my opinion that their products should be stop gaps until a better open protocol can be used was met with the reasonable argument that in many cases there are no better open protocols.  Which is a shame.

I went into the MS testing lab to test some basic file sharing with Samba and reminded myself about the problems in Kubuntu and discovered some problems in Windows.  They had to turn off firewalls and twiddle permissions just to be able to share files, which was something I always thought Windows was very good at.  Even then it only worked with IP address and not browsing.  They had no idea why but the Samba dudes knew straight away that name browsing had been disabled a while ago and a DNS server was needed for that.  Interesting the MS interoperability staff aren’t great at their own protocols.

Zaragoza

I had a great time in Zaragoza, only spoiled by travellers flu on the last day meaning I couldn’t go to the closing drinks.  It’s on the site of a 2008 world fair expo which feels like one of those legacy projects that get left to rot, 2008 wasn’t a great year to be trying to initiate legacy I think.  But the tapas was special and the vermut sweet.  The conference timetable was genius, first day starts at 9:00 next at 10:00 and final at 11:00.  The Zentyal staff who organised it was very friendly and they are doing incredible stuff reimplementing exchange.  It’s lovely to see MS want to talk to all of us but they’ve a way to go yet before they learn that interoperability should be about an even playing field not only on their terms.

The weeks since the last release were spent on improving support for annotations with ODT files. As a result this release now adds official support in Wodo.TextEditor for an alternative review-only modus (see the feature demo), where users can only add, edit and remove own annotations, but not modify the actual document content. Also have a few annotation related bugs been fixed.

So go to the Download page and update your deployment of webodf.js or the Wodo.TextEditor. Or check the demos (general, features).

ODF in the age of Big Data

On the 25th of March 2015, my son was born and to me it is by far the most important event of the day. Yet the same day the Document Freedom Day was gathering people across the world to celebrate open standards for documents and spread the word against vendor lock-in. This year, two distinct announcements were made that should pave the way for a continued adoption of ODF across the various markets. The first one was the start of the LibreOffice OnLine project, and the other one was Microsoft announcing the availability of ODF export for Microsoft Office 365. If we add to these two news items the commitment of Google to properly support ODF inside Google Drive, things are getting exciting for ODF. I have attempted to explain the advantages of ODF and open standards in this blog for many years, like several others have done and are still doing. But when it comes to the benefits of ODF in the cloud and with regard to big data, there has not been, as far as I can tell, any real attempt at articulating the relevance of ODF at this level.

Describing the benefits of ODF can be at times rather tricky as many people are just used to the omnipresent MS Office file formats. They do not ask themselves too many questions, and may not readily perceive some key advantages of ODF. In a nutshell, it is important to explain as a backgrounder the difference between interoperability and compatibility and then move on to address issues such as vendor lock-in, public and transparent standardization processes, licensing and copyright of the norm, etc. One may even rely on the theory of network effects to explain how one proprietary, de facto standard can quickly come to impose itself in any given market to justify the coming of age of ODF. How does all this work for the cloud? Not so well, actually.dove-logo-2012

Cloud computing, and more specifically software as a service may not render all the points above moot, but it does change the paradigm. Consuming, editing, sharing documents in the cloud change the basic premise that in order for me to exchange content with someone, I need to have the same software and use the same file format. The basic premise does not go away, but becomes one possible use case among others. What rather happens is that I can create a document that I will share inside a group of peers or inside an organization. The file itself is stored in the cloud (public or private) and I will send a link, not a file with a specific file format, to the people I want to share the document with. They in turn can use the link to simply read, or edit, and share back the document. In this scenario there is no need to have high quality implementations of specific file format. The final output tends to become more and more a PDF as all the editing work has already happened and the document logic and formatting itself resides more on the server side that inside a sophisticated file format. So much for document freedom? Not so fast.

ODF and file formats specifications that are open standards cannot do much for cloud architectures or the policy of data usage for organizations or consumers. One may need other types of open standards, corporate and public policy, use cases, etc. Document file formats are expected to remain what they are. But as such they do convey real benefits even in the age of the cloud and the big data. After all, thousands of documents stored in a cloud and formatted in binary blurbs no one has the key for remain exactly as useless as they were without the cloud: useless docs.

With ODF, benefits exist even in the cloud:

  • Portability: You not only maintain the ability to use, reuse and archive your documents, you ensure that the portability of your existing and future documents across the cloud services and proivders you rely on today and will rely on tomorrow.
  • Reusability/data mining and intelligence: Because its specifications are published and its IPR allowing any kind of modification and implementation, ODF documents are a sound base for what’s often referred to as big data operations, such as data mining, extracting sense and value out f metadata inside and outside organizations.
  • Interoperability: This one may sound obvious, but it is not. There is a number of people out there who will readily tell anyone who cares to listen that office file formats (any of them) are on the verge of extinction, since you can do anything you need to do through software or software as a service that has html and pdf as their output. This is of course true. Oddly enough, I have yet to see a cross platform word processor or, spreadsheet or presentation software, or even a text editor that would offer the same ability foranyoneto edit html files that are complex, such as tables with pivot tables and working formulas or complex looking text documents. This may sound ludicrous, but the only tools doing this to this day are office suites that will have you compose your document first and then export it to html, with more or less integrity as to the formatting. Nothing else exists -and yes I’m aware of LaTeX, but this is about tools foreveryone. My point here is that ODF is essentially a compressed archive of xml files and additional contents (images, fonts), just like several other formats of its generation. Zipping several xml files together and keeping both the integrity of the content and its presentation is something that can be achievable on a server, and as such could enable ODF to become one of the pivot formats for documents and data in the cloud.
  • Auditability /control over your data: Because ODF documents have their specifications published and known, it is always possible to check their integrity and audit them while being stored on the cloud or “offloaded” from it. It is useful if you want to ensure that no one tinkered with your documents and if you want to avoid building a walled garden with the data you own and control but which only one or a handful of vendors own the real key.

ODF-logoOne may notice that the points listed above loosely match the main points usually mentioned when discussing the benefits of ODF in the more standard settings of the desktop. This is not surprising, but it was not necessarily intended; if anything this is a testimony to the value of a standard like ODF and its importance. The key point here is that when it comes to the cloud and big data, ODF is both a factor of transparency and innovation. This is something worth promoting and is a potential path to renewed success of ODF in the future.

Alan Horkan: OpenRaster Metadata

Summary: plugin updated to allow round-trip of metadata.

OpenRaster does not yet make any suggestions on how to store metadata. My preference is for OpenRaster to continue to borrow from OpenDocument and use the same format meta.xml file, but that can be complicated. Rather than taking the time to write a whole lot of code and waiting do metadata the best way, I found another way that is good enough, and expedient. I think ordinary users will find it useful -- which is the most important thing -- to be able to round-trip metadata in the OpenRaster format, so despite my reservations about creating code that might discourage developers (myself included) from doing things a better way in future I am choosing the easy option. (In my previous post I mentioned my concern about maintainability, this is what I was alluding to.)

A lot of work has been done over the years to make the The GNU Image Manupilation Program (GIMP) work with existing standards. One of those standards is XMP, the eXtensible Metadata Platform originally created by Adobe Systems, which used the existing Dublin Core metadata standard to create XML packets that can be inserted inside (or alongside) an image file. The existing code creates an XMP packet, let's call it packet.xmp and include it in the OpenRaster file. There's a little more code to the load the information back in and users should be able to go to menu File, Properties and in Properties dialog go to the tab labelled Advanced to view (or set) metadata.

This approach may not be particularly useful to users who want to get their information out into other applications such as MyPaint or Krita (or Drawpile or Lazpaint) but it at least allows them not to lose metadata information when they use OpenRaster. (In the long run other programs will probably want to implement code to read XMP anyway, so I think this is a reasonable compromise, even though I want OpenRaster to stay close to OpenDocument and benefit from being part of that very large community.)

You can get the updated plugin immediately from the OpenRaster plugin gitorious project page.

If you are a developer and want to modify or reuse the code, it is published under the ISC License.
