    LibreOffice 3.6 改进之处


    This is an in-progress scratch-pad of notes to build release notes from as and when we release. Please do not list features that are to be shipped already in the 3.5 release! Please do not add wish-list features that you hope will be implemented, but only what actually is implemented already.

    What does a good feature look like here:

    • It has a description, and a way for a busy reviewer, to find and play with the feature. Target someone who is extremely busy, and knows little-to-nothing about the product. So if a user interface element is key to the feature, be very explicit about where it is, e. g. Menu ▸ Format ▸ Character ▸ Position [tab] ▸ ‘90 degrees’ paths to the elements you changed. Of course, you know your feature is important, and that everyone should care about the Extensible AutoShapes Properties dialog – but often the guys taking the screenshots and writing the notes do not.
    • It credits the main authors who did the work – just add them in brackets after the feature, where possible.
    • If the feature can be shown off with a sample / test file – particularly for new import-able features, it would be wonderful to have a link to/up-load of a test file that we can use to show that feature off to best effect. That really helps us to make good screenshots to show off the features, and allows reviewers to do their testing.

    Thanks in advance for your help filling this out!

    • Recent Documents list are updated on Save, Save As, Save All, and Close. tdf#37775 (Muhammad Haggag)
    • Allow for editing of read-only documents. Paraphrasing from the commit message of [1]:
      • When e.g. viewing mail attachments (that have been stored r/o to some download directory by the mail application), it would be nice if the user could easily temporarily modify them (say, play around with a spreadsheet, changing some numbers and triggering recalculation of formulas) by clicking the "Edit File" button and not being asked to create a copy for editing. Thus:
        • The "Edit File" button now only toggles the r/o status of the view. It no longer asks to create a copy for editing if the underlying document is physically r/o.
        • When a modified document is toggled to a r/o view via "Edit File," LO still asks the user to save or discard the changes. However, if the underlying document is physically r/o, saving the document opens the "Save As" dialog, instead of just doing a "Save" operation (which would fail on the physically r/o document).
        • The title of the document window now contains "(read-only)" if and only if either the view is r/o or the document is physically r/o (or both).
    • Add Support assistive technology tools option to installation process tdf#39833 (Andras Timar).
    • Added Lanczos algorithm for resizing of images and use it instead of interpolate algorithm. This change has increased the quality of images when reducing image resolution in PDF export. tdf#46378 (Tomaž Vajngerl)
