LibreOffice logo (60 pix)De Document Foundation heeft de tweede bètarelease van versie 4.0 van LibreOffice uitgebracht. Dit opensource-officepakket is ontstaan als een afsplitsing van OpenOffice en wordt geleverd met tekstverwerker Writer, spreadsheetprogramma Calc, presentatieprogramma Impress, tekenprogramma Draw, databaseprogramma Base en Formula, een applicatie om wetenschappelijke notaties mee te maken. Wie er mee aan de gang wil gaan hoeft niet bang te zijn voor de huidige installatie, want deze bèta wordt ernaast en niet eroverheen geïnstalleerd. Hieronder is een overzicht te vinden van de veranderingen en verbeteringen die we in versie 4.0 tegemoet kunnen zien.

  • Enable attaching comments to document text ranges. fdo#38244
  • Allow extra word boundary characters. This feature overrides long dash (—) and short dash (–) to be word boundary characters for the purposes of counting words, and allows the user to specify additional word boundary characters (at Tools → Options → Writer → General → Word Count).
  • Import ink annotations from DOCX and RTF documents (available when using Word on a Tablet PC).
  • Import / export support for native RTF math expressions
  • Allow different header and footer on the first page without using a separate page style. For more details, see this blog entry.
  • RTF filter now imports old Drawing Objects syntax (fdo#42407). See this blog entry for details and screenshots.
  • Various DOCX improvements: import of floating tables, OLE objects inside rectangles, margins of inline images using the WordProcessing markup.
  • Clicking fields selects them instead of placing the cursor before them.
  • New spreadsheet function XOR as defined in ODF OpenFormula. fdo#50882
  • Improved performance of ODS document import.
  • New configuration option to toggle handling of empty strings when used in arithmetic expression. fdo#44720
  • Save settings of Text Import Dialog for Text to Columns and Paste Unformatted Text from Clipboard (in addition to Text File Import). fdo#47674
  • Export color scales and data bars to XLSX (also supports Excel 2010+ extensions for databars).
  • Increased size limit on (uncompressed) ODF documents from 2Gb to 4Gb.
  • Support "type-ahead" search in the autofilter popup. It is now possible to search for specific entry via key input.
  • XML Source dialog to quickly import arbitrary XML content. Refer to this page for more information on this feature.
  • New pricing Add-In containing spreadsheet functions for option pricing in particular barrier (OPT_BARRIER(...)) and touch (OPT_TOUCH(...)) options. Example : File:Calc-pricing-add-in.ods
  • The state of the sidebar pane in Impress is now remembered.
  • Added External Edit menu function for bitmaps.
  • Much accelerated multimedia previews, and previews of embedded video on Linux.
  • Added External Edit menu function for bitmaps.
  • Improve quality of page previews in Draw/Impress with supersampling.
  • On all non-Windows platforms a new mork driver implementation is used to access Thunderbird address book. This means that Debian/Ubuntu users can finally integrate LO with their Thunderbird address book. (Debian/Ubuntu distros are not shipping a Mozilla-based mork driver, therefore their native Base package can not access the address book.) This also fixes some really old bugs for different distros. For more information please see:
  • In Forms, AutoFilter does not anymore treat values as patterns. As a consequence, an AutoFilter on "A*" will not anymore match any value starting with an A, but only the exact value "A*". fdo#48807

  • Import filter for Microsoft Publisher publications. More details in this blog.
  • Extended coverage of Visio file-format. LibreOffice 4.0.0 supports all existing Visio file formats from Visio 1.0 released in 1992 to Microsoft Visio 2013 released in 2012. More details in this blog.
