Formula engine:
Table structured references

tdf#85063 (Eike Rathke, Red Hat)

    The following restrictions of Table structured references that were present \ 
in 5.0 were addressed:
        The column names must not be present as cell content in the table's \ 
header row any more; column-header-less tables are now supported.
            For this, for new database ranges without header cells or with empty \ 
header cell content, internal names are generated, for example Column1, Column2, \ 
            Internal names are imported from OOXML spreadsheet documents and \ 
continue to function in formula expressions.
        Saving to OOXML, structured references are now written (not transformed \ 
to A1 notation any more) and the table context is maintained.
        Saving to OOXML, the defined database ranges are now exported as \ 
<table> elements.
    Modifying header cell content updates the internal table column names.
        When deleting header cell content, formulas referring the column name \ 
continue to function and are still editable using the previous name.
        When duplicating header cell content, duplicated column names internally \ 
are numbered. For example, having two FooBar header cells the column names will \ 
be FooBar and FooBar2. This is
automatically reflected in existing formula expressions.
        When inserting columns within a table, numbered column names are \ 
internally generated for empty header cells, starting with the column number \ 
within the table. For example, inserting two
columns before the third column of a table the generated names are Column3 and \ 
            The generated column names are updated if text is entered in such an \ 
empty cell.
        All internal column names are unique within one table, which is \ 
reflected when displaying existing formula expressions.

Sticky end column/row anchors

tdf#92779 (Eike Rathke, Red Hat)

    For range references that encompass at least two columns or rows where the \ 
end reference points to the last column or row, i.e. AMJ or 1048576, the end \ 
column or row is sticky now and not moved
when inserting or deleting columns or rows.
    When inserting columns or rows and updating a reference the end reference \ 
would be shifted out of the sheet bounds, the reference is anchored at the last \ 
column or row instead of generating a
#REF! error.
        For example a reference B2:B1048575 when inserting two rows will be \ 
updated to B2:B1048576.
        The column or row will become sticky then, in the example row 1048576.
    A reference like B1048576:C1048576 does not have a sticky end row anchor, \ 
because only one row is referenced.

Compatibility with ODF 1.2

Function WEEKNUM strictly complies with ODF 1.2 function definition and \ 
ISOWEEKNUM has been introduced. tdf#50950 (Winfried Donkers + Eike Rathke)

    In the UI the WEEKNUM_ADD function has been renamed to WEEKNUM_EXCEL2003 to \ 
point out it exists for interoperability of documents created with Microsoft \ 
        Importing such documents created with older Microsoft Excel versions map \ 
the WEEKNUM function to WEEKNUM_EXCEL2003
        Saving to ODF or OOXML writes WEEKNUM, older LibreOffice and \ 
OpenOffice.org release map that to WEEKNUM_ADD.
        For new documents the WEEKNUM function should be used.
    WEEKNUM now supports all arguments of the second parameter as defined in ODF \ 
OpenFormula (ODFF), see \ 
http://docs.oasis-open.org/office/v1.2/ … ml#WEEKNUM
    The ISOWEEKNUM function has been implemented to calculate the week number \ 
according to ISO 8601, see \ 
http://docs.oasis-open.org/office/v1.2/ … ISOWEEKNUM
    WEEKNUM_OOO provides compatibility with older LibreOffice and OpenOffice.org \ 
releases for cases that can not be mapped to WEEKNUM or ISOWEEKNUM as defined in \ 
the standard, specifically if the
mode argument is 1 the old WEEKNUM implementation returned a week number \ 
calculated as if it was an ISO 8601 calculation but with the week starting on \ 
Sunday instead of Monday. This is not covered by
any standard.
        Not offered in the Function Wizard to prevent accidental use. Use it \ 
only if interoperability with older LibreOffice or OpenOffice.org releases is \ 
        Currently still saved wrongly as ISOWEEKNUM with 2 parameters for \ 
interoperability with older LibreOffice or OpenOffice.org releases.
    be changed in future for release 5.3 and the function will be saved as \ 
ORG.LIBREOFFICE.WEEKNUM_OOO, the current 5.1 release is already enabled to read \ 

Impress and Draw:

    Slide navigation and sorting commands were added with corresponding shortw \ 
appears in a different background color to normal view. tdf#87905 (Katarina \ 
Behrens, CIB)
    KDE, XFCE, and Mate ScreenSavers are now also inhibited when presenting \ 
(Andrzej Hunt).

Impress Mode selection

Several modes were active in Impress:

    Pag Master to edit Notes container
    Plan to sketch a presentation
    Handout to define the handout format
    Slide sorter to organise presentation

It was hard to navigate between Master / non master modes. Tabs above the \ 
working area were jumping right and left, consuming screen space.

Now, two toolbox icons have been added:

    one to toggle Tab bar visibility. It is hidden by default. Clicking the \ 
toggle disables the new Mode Selection tool and restores the previous behaviour.
    one to Select the Working mode among the 7 modes listed above. It is divided \ 
in two zones: top zone is regular mode (dealing with content of the \ 
presentation), bottom zone is the Master mode
(dealing with container).

Slide Design

Slide Design dialog in Slide ▸ Slide Design now affects all selected \ 
(standard) slides. (Caolán McNamara, Red Hat)
Equalize Width/Height

When multiple objects are selected, the right click context menu Shapes submenu \ 
now supports Equalize Width and Equalize Height which adjusts the width/height \ 
of the selected objects to the
width/height of the last selected object. (Caolán McNamara, Red Hat)

Save Background Image

Right clicking a slide now supports saving a background image to file, this \ 
matches the pre-existing set background image option. (Caolán McNamara, Red \ 

View/Edit Control Points

The Shape Properties dialog for enhanced shapes now lists and enables editing \ 
the control points. This is in addition to the preexisting mechanism of \ 
selecting with the mouse the yellow control
handle of the shape, but enables viewing and fine control over the control \ 
values. (Caolán McNamara, Red Hat)

Presenter Console

There is now a button on the presenter console to restart the timer of the \ 
slideshow without restarting the slideshow itself (see this blog entry) (Miklos \ 
Vajna, Collabora; Andreas Kainz)

OpenGL Transitions

All OpenGL transitions have been ported to OpenGL 2.1+, which removes support \ 
for very old GPUs but allows a better usage of modern ones. Four new transitions \ 
have been added and exploit these new
available features. (Emmanuel Gil Peyrot, Collabora; Tomaž Vajngerl, Collabora)


    Autoclosing brackets is optional now tdf#43090

Import MathML from Clipboard

(Regina Henschel)

    The tool “Math Input Panel” in Windows or the context menu of a formula \ 
in a browser allow to copy the MathML source to clipboard. The Math module in \ 
LibreOffice has got a new item “Import MathML
from Clipboard” in menu Tools to import such source and convert it into \ 
LibreOffice’s own formula syntax StarMath.

MathML and StarMath have some differences and therefore sometimes corrections on \ 
the imported formula are needed, but most of the formula should be correct. If a \ 
conversion is not possible, nothing

The import expects, that a <math> element exists, which has an attribute \ 

Ancient SeaMonkey based mozab driver was only used on Windows 32 bit and is \ 
removed now. This functionality is replaced with mork driver, that supports \ 
Thunderbird address book.

Given that SeaMonkey based mozab driver also provided Outlook and Outlook \ 
Express address book integration, that Windows 32 bit only feature is lost for \ 
now. Note that Windows 64 bit never supported
ancient SeaMonkey based mozab driver.

Trend Line

    Exponential and Power trend lines accept negative Y values tdf#70673 (Laurent BP)
    Improve equation rendering by removing some useless 1: (Laurent BP)
        polynomial: f(x) = 1x^2 + 1x +1 => f(x) = x^2 + x +1


Unicode character input with Alt+X

Some Windows applications, such as Microsoft Word and WordPad, permit the user \ 
to input arbitrary Unicode characters by typing an hexadecimal code point (for \ 
example, 2026 for …) and then pressing
Alt+X. LibreOffice now includes this functionality as well. (Note: This feature \ 
adds to the long-existing, equivalent Linux/GTK functionality of pressing \ 
Ctrl+⇧ Shift+U+hexadecimal code point.)
tdf#73691 (SIL)


    Toggles (switches back and forth) between the character before the cursor \ 
and its Unicode notation.
    Intelligently handles combining characters, expanding the entire character \ 
    Selection is not necessary, but if used will limit the input to those \ 
characters. (Draw/Impress/Calc have the final result selected, but not Writer.)
    Handles all 16 Unicode planes
    Available in Writer, Draw, Impress, Calc and Math.
    Re-assignable keyboard shortcut: Tools ▸ Customize ▸ Keyboard ▸ \ 
Category:Options ▸ Function:Toggle Unicode Notation. Defaults to Alt+X \ 
assigned at the global level. (Alt+C used for
Basque/Dutch/Galician/German/Brazilian-Portugese locales and ⌘ Command+⌥ \ 
Option+X used for MacOS).

WebDav Improvements

    Better LOCK/UNLOCK support tdf#82744 (Giuseppe Castagno)
    Support a (https-like) non-standard vnd.sun.star.webdavs URL scheme in \ 
addition to the non-standard (http-like) vnd.sun.star.webdav scheme, core commit \ 
(Stephan Bergmann, Red Hat)

New import filters

    Gnumeric is now an officially supported import format (does not work on \ 
Windows) (It was supported as part of the experimental features for some time) \ 
(Markus Mohrhard)
    Microsoft Write (.wri files) can now be imported, via libwps. (Sean Young)
    Apple Keynote 6 files can now be imported, via libetonyek. tdf#88682 (David \ 
Tardon, Red Hat)

Improvements in OpenXML filter

    Export of the modified VBA stream back to binary Microsoft formats and OOXML \ 
(Rosemary Sebastian, Markus Mohrhard)
        There is a new configuration value that allows to control whether to use \ 
this feature (by default yes) or switch back to the old behavior of discarding \ 
or writing back the unchanged stream
        The following features are not yet (completely) supported: Protected \ 
macros, macro sheets, active x and some of the designer features.
    Improved export of embedded objects to DOCX and PPTX, including export of \ 
Math formulas (Michael Stahl, Red Hat)
    Numerous other improvements to the Microsoft OOXML import and export \ 
filters, the Microsoft Office binary file formats and the RTF format. Details:
        OOXML Filters → OOXML, DOCX, XLSX, PPTX, VML, drawingML
        Microsoft Office binary file filters → DOC, XLS, PPT, "ww8"
        RTF Filters → RTF
