* Removed obsolete language strings

Source code released!

After days of figuring out how to filter a SVN dump properly, we can announce the release of the full source code. Includes all Java files, used libs, JUnit test cases, XDL dialogs, OOo help files, misc NetBeans project stuff and the complete PO translations. Everything is delivered as original revisions incl. dates and authors with comments. Enjoy this open source contribution to the OOo developer community! :)

Download now!

We have just release the AST extension! Download it here and be sure the file ending is OXT not ZIP. The profile at will follow soon (Link: ), too.

However we hab some troubles importing the source code to SF, filtering a SVN dump file can be cruel. Working on it, sorry for the delay.

Coding and testing is somewhat finished. We are currently writing the built-in manual designed as a separate help entry. Targeting a release this month and looking forward to reactions of the OOo community. :)
