About the Progress Bar on the Document Recovery Dialog

Hello Devs,

I am simplifying the Document Recovery Dialog.[0][1]

I made LO crash with many documents, and observed its behavior during 
recovery. And there was nothing in the blank space where the progress 
bar should appear. Thus, as the "Recovery document:" label along with 
the 'progress bar' under that seems broken/useless, I would like to kill 
them too. (Besides, the recovery progress is already being indicated in 
the list box below.)

What do you think? Any objections?

GSoC Week 4: Redesigning the Template Manager

    I'm working with on the Template Manager as my GSoC project. (Mentors: Samuel Mehrbrodt and Yousuf Philips)

Last week, I fixed some bugs and enhancement requests in start center. I worked on few remaining parts of my project. I am also working on a writer enhancement (GotoPage Dialog),

This week, I'll provide the documentation team with the list of changes I've done to template manager and will continue with the other tasks.

Menu -> VclPtr ...

Hi Noel,

	Had a quick read of:

	Looks rather good to me - all the instances which you highlight as
'dodgy' look really odd to me even in the pre-existing code ;-) deleting
items that still have private pointers lurking around in child
containers is ... ;-) 'interesting'.

	"delete pFoo->LetMePokeInYourInnards()"

	is a curious use of pFoo ;-)

	What do you think of the attached to fix that ? (not compile tested
sadly - but hopefully squashes nicely and achieves what we want ?

	Would love to have some of that automated UI testing stuff implemented
at this stage - but absent that, if it works with some manual testing -
it'd be good to get in I think; while an impressive change - it's far
smaller and less disruptive than the original VclPtr stuff I think =)

Collabora Online 1.0 Roadmap and Questions

Hi all,

I'm in the midst of writing a news article about the Collabora Online
1.0 release. I had a couple questions for you:

1. (a) It appears that the 1.0 release is missing a number of features
that could be found in vanilla LibreOffice binaries (e.g. a number of
functions for spreadsheets, "track changes" style editing in the
document editor, spellchecking, etc.). How come?

(b) Is the only spreadsheet function available in 1.0 SUM? I wasn't able
to find any other shortcuts for functions in the spreadsheet editor.

(c) Is the real-time editing preview in CODE available in the 1.0 demo?
I wasn't able to find it...

2. Are there plans to reintroduce these features in future releases?

3. What distinguishes Collabora Online from competitors such as Open365
( or OnlyOffice (

4. What is the target "market" for Collabora Online? Primarily business
enterprises/non-profits/government agencies?

5. What "value-added" services could I get as, say, a corporation
contracting with Collabora to get enhancements and/or support for
Collabora Online?

Thanks very much for any answers you can provide. It's an interesting
