Recent reversal / questioning of policy by München government

This
<http://www.sueddeutsche.de/muenchen/muenchner-stadtverwaltung-von-microsoft-zu-linux-und-zurueck-1.2090611>

recent Süddeutsche article (German text - English version via Google
Translate 
here
<https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=de&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.sueddeutsche.de%2Fmuenchen%2Fmuenchner-stadtverwaltung-von-microsoft-zu-linux-und-zurueck-1.2090611&edit-text=&act=url> 
) seems to be getting cited by a number of Tech news sites. The ZDNet
article 
here
<http://www.zdnet.com/after-a-10-year-linux-migration-munich-considers-switching-back-to-windows-and-office-7000032714/>

appears to offer more detail than most. Scant mention is made of LibreOffice
in any of the articles.

Does anyone have a clearer understanding of what this may mean in terms of
LibreOffice use if the policy is reversed and a transition from LiMux
(Ubuntu-based distribution) back to Microsoft Windows begins? LibreOffice
can of course run on either platform, but part of the issue seems to have
been OOXML support when exchanging files with customers. It will be
disheartening to see a reversal after so much effort.

-----
Best wishes, Owen.

Tango Icon Theme

Hi

I have upgraded to LO 4.3 on Debian (32 bit).

I see that some of the toolbar icons in the Tango style have changed from 4.2 (for example bold, underline,
italic). Is this intentional or will they revert back to the familiar icons in due course?

Thanks.

Regards

Nige Verity

LO Base Enhancements

Hi
 
I was an MS Access developer for about 10 years until I was able to escape to Linux. I used OOO/LibreOffice
even when I was tied to Windows but it always fell down when it came to database access.
 
Base is great as a means of accessing a wide variety of database back-ends, but its form designer falls well
of short of MS Access, both in features and ease of use. When a new user opens the Base designer the first
sight is of a fairly familiar-looking interface. This encouraging start is undermined once it becomes
apparent how difficult macro programming can be, and how little flexibility there is over the form's
visual design and behaviour.
 
HSQLDB seems to be powerful in terms of its support for complex SQL execution, but it is relatively slow and
inefficient when there is a large number of records.
 
For the vast majority of users, LO Writer, Calc and Impress already provide everything they would ever want
from an office suite. Unfortunately the same cannot be said for Base.
 
When I am developing standalone database applications for Linux I use Gambas3, talking to a Sqlite
backend. The connection can be defined in the form designer or 4 lines of code. There is no dependency on
Java, and bound controls and subforms are fully supported. In short, this combination of FLOSS
components pretty much provides a complete Linux replacement for MS Access.
 
Sqlite has a large and well-organised development team. It performs really well even with very large
datasets. I feel that making Sqlite the default database for LO Base in place of HSQLDB would free
resources for more development of the front-end.
 
I would urge you to take a look at Gambas3 to see how easy it is to develop a database application with it.
Perhaps taking it as inspiration for an enhanced Base will finally make LibreOffice a one-stop solution
for a great many businesses.

Enhancment: Inserting cross-references: headings -> display -> function as Navigator

Hi *,

Problem:
Using Documents - containing a lot of headings  - the problem exits, 
that inserting cross-references "headings" in the field "display" the  
search of the heading is inconvenient.

Enhancement:
IMHO it is a relief when the presentation in the "display" can be opened 
or closed as the Navigator.

I have created an enhancement in Bugzilla[1].
If anyone can identify with this suggestion, I would be happy for 
entering a comment and/or entering to the CC list.

[1] https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=81570

Regards (from Germany)

Jochen

LIbreoffice suggestion 07-17-2014

For future development if it is not a copyrighted process:

Can you create pinable menus so that they can remain on the screen for ready access as you are working on a document.

Geoworks had this handy feature, but it may be a copyrighted feature.

Intervention

Hello everyone,

I've been aware of the following situation for a long time in the "bug
report forum", but I thought it would improve over time. Since it
hasn't changed at all, I feel I have to blow the whistle on this.

As I have already written in a specific thread, here's the situation:

1) Almost all bug reports "checkcers" don't even consider bug reports
when they can't get the original file(s);

2) The same people mark bug reports as "Resolved - Invalid / Not A
Bug" even when they are unable to confirm or deny them for whatever
reason: no original file, different environment than the reporter, ...

3) It is not always possible for the bug reporters to hand over their
original file(s), for many different reasons that are beyond the scope
of this thread (confidentiality, legal concerns and so on...).

I believe it is always possible for the checkers to trust the
"reporters" and follow the "steps to reproduce" on their own material
****first****; if they can't do that, they probably should ask
themselves about their true motivations in this forum. It is rare that
the reporters use tricky configurations with tricky files and so on.
Moreover, in case these steps are unclear, the "reporters" are usually
available to clarify their point, otherwise they would not have spent
their time in the first place.*Only then* can some files be uploaded
to check some very uncommon settings or the report be marked as
"invalid" or whatever is the most appropriate.

security related information, CVE-2014-0247

A bit slow announcing this one personally, though its been out on the
wires for distributions and other sources for a few weeks now.

LibreOffice 4.2.5 fixes a bug that crept into 4.1.4 onwards where the
vba macros in Microsoft Office documents loaded into LibreOffice would
effectively ignore the macro disabling code and be free to run
unhindered. You are recommended to upgrade to 4.2.5. Thanks to Stephen
Bergmann of Red Hat, Inc. for discovering this through his code review.
