This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
SUSE which is an amazing company, and also
Dell who in days of yore provided me with a
free laptop for Gnome development / conferences.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here.
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
Poked mail, tried to track down some (apparent) confusion between
system and internal boost breaking some tinderboxes; finally found
the issue some missing
Built the ESC bug stats.
Lydia & Janice over for dinner. Worked late; read some blogs -
lots of encouraging work going on in LibreOffice - a small fraction of
which is being blogged; my favourites today:
- Until recently it was fashionable to complain about regressions
in the RTF filters: the background being that we kicked out a huge scad of
old, ugly duplicate code and unified it with the existing MS format filters.
Anyhow - as of now, only 1 (minor performance) regression bug remains open that
I'm aware of. Miklos has also added a huge slew of features (things like not
loosing all the document after the first embedded formula). He just blogged
some pretty pictures of these
Drawing Object import.
- Another fun development is Fridrich's (spare time) project to work
on the Visio file formats which is yielding some great fruit - he has even
implemented Visio 2013 import support before that has shipped:
Visio filter at LibreGraphics World.
- Also nice to see people arriving for the group photo from the LibreOffice
conference, hopefully a better shot to follow at some stage:
from the LibreOffice conference - lots of happy contributors (and a small number
of ODF plug-festers) in a wonderful venue, with many thanks to the German Federal
Ministry of Economics and Technology.
