Could we have links to issues on Issue Tracker relating to these features so that people can easily see progress and easy updates to the page can be made?

Is chart2 same as "New Chart Module"? If so, it's listed under two different target versions.

Will the rewritten chart2 module be based on an improved 3D engine that does not producte charts with severe aliasing?

I'm doing some work on this page to hopefully improve the information available as to what is new with each release. If I mess anything up, let me know! mibus 14:06, 7 February 2007 (CET)


I would especially like to have the following issues integrated into OOo 3.0. These are more general issues and I feel that there will be general acceptance of the usefulness of implementing them.

Additional Layouts

Writer lacks a lot of useful Views/Layouts. As writing a new document involves a number of steps, each one involving particular resources and needs, it makes sense to have Layouts adapted to each of those steps.

This is discussed more fully on the Writer Layouts-Wiki page. I started to expand that page, too.

Display Multiple Pages

One additional Layout is described in issue 1598. I have begun drafting a feature specification (see the issue for details). This issue also has gathered 117 votes.

Fixed Lower Boundary for Text and Objects

High end publishing software set a fixed lower boundary to every object and text on a page. Therefore, every page / columns on a page, ends at this fixed position. This gives a professional touch to the document.

Unfortunately, the ODF specification lacks features that would allow to implement this in OOo. therefore, it is necessary to improve the ODF-specification in a first step. I would recommend doing this in the OOo 3.0 time-frame, and implementing the full feature in the OOo 3.x time-frame, see the Writer ODF Enhancement-Wiki page and issue 79877.

See issue 61613 and issue 79866 for further details.

Add better html export:

  • full-text export
  • full style information
  • CSS
  • more interactivity (url, js, ...)

Highlight ROW/Selection

Highlight current row (row over which the mouse pointer is placed).

See issue 79882.

This will bring greater interactivity to the presentation, also enhancing the experience for web-presentations. It is a better way of highlighting a selection than using a laser-pointer or the computer mouse.
