  • Regarding online help: The UI for the driver is already part of OOo, it's just not enabled when the extension is not installed. Extending the pre-installed help topics with the extension is not possible, the only thing we can do is installing new help topics. This does not make sense, since the extension itself does not bring own UI which could serve as entry point into the new help topics.
  • Regarding the feature comparison: Let's live with the advantages listed at the Beta release homepage for the moment. The 1.0 release will, feature-wise, not have tremendous advantages over the JDBC driver.
