Dear Developers, Translators, Users!
- Knock! Knock!
- Who is there?
- It is OxygenOffice Professional 2.4.
Now, after long time of silence I would like to inform you about news
around OxygenOffice Professional. First of all, as you probably know we
are working hard to move OxygenOffice Professional from vanilla base to
Novell's ooo-build system. I proidly report we have successfully built
the first version, so if you want to use state-of-art version of
OpenOffice.org derivates you should check our lastest build @
ftp.devall.hu/kami/ Currently not all language uploaded because of lack
of bandwidth. Of course I can provide builds in your language if you
request it. What is the main advantages to using ooo-build system? The
build process is much simplier. You can track it here:
Also we have lots of features (of course in Beta stage) that is not
provided by OpenOffice.org. So it is more important to test it more
carefully and report bugs.
For example we got more import filters (NB: SVG filter is improved
much), tuned performance, on Linux we have such rich features like
OpenGL effects in Impress (more info:
and GStreamer media support (with wider range of supported media
formats)... Also we have improved Office OpenXML import filters (docx,
xlsx, pptx)... I didn't write a full changelog because it lots of time
instead of development. Also I am refactoring some parts of gallery.
It sounds good isn't it?
Now here is the time to help our work. For example you have to update
the translations. Please update the translations, the translation kit is
now updated, downloadable from here:
For translations here is a little help (Impress effects preview):
If you need more information, do not hesitate to ask me. Also I would be
so glad if you collect templates for your language.
Everybody can test the latest preview releases here: ftp.devall.hu/kami/
Also I am very interested in documentation updates. The current list of
wiki pages is here: http://ooop.wiki.sourceforge.net/space/pagelist
Please help provide more information in the wiki. Also you can translate
the wiki pages to you mother tongue.
We are still interested in a cool webpage. The proposal of James is so
exciting, so James (and others) can you help me to make it happen?
Thank you in advance!
PS: For a memo I attach some rules about templates and translation.
