unlimited conditional formatting

According to http://www.mail-archive.com/libreoffice@lists.freedesktop.org/msg12075.html conditional formatting supports an unlimited number of conditions now. In case it is correct, it should be added to the article. --Bugmenot 2011-12-16T19:35:45 (CET)

Different Encryption Algorithm

What about the following more verbose description of AES support?

  • In LibreOffice 3.5, a different and more secure encryption algorithm (AES-256) is used for password protected files in the ODF 1.2 and ODF 1.2 Extended file formats. The new cipher is activated, by default. Blowfish encryption in ODF 1.2 files is considered deprecated. Here's some more background:
    • LibreOffice versions up to 3.4.4 don't support the AES-256 cipher.
    • LibreOffice 3.4.5 can read ODF files encrypted with the AES-256 cipher, but upon writing a password protected file falls-back to the Blowfish cipher.
    • LibreOffice 3.5.0 can read and write ODF files encrypted with the AES-256 as well as the Blowfish cipher. For files in the ODF 1.2 and ODF 1.2 Extended formats, AES-256 is the default cipher. There's no UI to choose between the two ciphers. That is, new as well as existing password encrypted documents in the ODF 1.2 and ODF 1.2 Extended formats are encrypted with the AES-256 cipher upon writing them to disk.
    • Hint: LibreOffice versions up to 3.4.4 cannot open password protected files in the ODF 1.2 and ODF 1.2 Extended formats written by LibreOffice 3.5. All users of the LibreOffice 3.3 and 3.4 series are seriously advised to update to LibreOffice 3.4.5 or later.
