Log message:
misc/libreoffice: Update to

* Disable generation and installation of multi language help files
  to reduce package size and build time.


  * "Legal" ordered list numbering: make a given list level use Arabic
    numbering for all its number parts. tdf#150408 (Mike Kaganski, Collabora)
  * Comments can now use styles, the "Comment" paragraph style being the
    default one. This makes it easier to modify the formatting of all comments
    at once, or to visually categorise different types of comments. tdf#103064

  * Improve first page headers/footers OOXML import: Use first page property in
    the existing page style instead of creating a new page style just for the
    first page. tdf#136472 (Toma? Vajngerl, Collabora)


  * Linkable elements can now be drag-and-dropped from the Navigator onto a
    text selection to use the selection as the hyperlink text. tdf#156111 (Jim
  * Nested Sections can now be collapsed just like Headings (tdf#158103) and
    can be hidden or made visible from their context menu (tdf#157681). (Jim
  * In Outline Folding mode, the hidden headings are now greyed out in the
    Navigator instead of not being visible. tdf#156282 (Jim Raykowski)
  * Comments in a thread are now grouped in the Navigator. tdf#157729 (Jim

Multi-page floating tables

Support for multi-page floating tables was improved in various aspects:

  * Overlap control, border and footnotes: blog post (Miklos Vajna, Collabora)
  * Nesting: blog post (Miklos Vajna, Collabora)
  * Wrap on all pages: blog post (Miklos Vajna, Collabora)
  * UI improvements: blog post (Miklos Vajna, Collabora)


  * Templates with the required settings for Japanese text added to the
    Localization category. This increases interoperability with Microsoft Word
    for Japanese users. tdf#86483, core commit feeb3a46 (Jun Nogata)

New line break algorithm for interoperability

Since 2013, the non-proprietary, metric-compatible alternative fonts are no
longer guaranteed the same paragraph layout, because MS Word 2013 and later
introduced a new default line breaking algorithm for justified text. To fix the
lost interoperability, the same algorithm has been implemented in Writer to
reduce spaces within justified lines by up to 20%. tdf#119908 blog post (L??szl
?? N??meth, donor: NLnet).

For example, the 2-page test document in Writer has been reduced to one page,
just like in MS Word, as visible on the following composite image (red text
typeset by MS Word, which covered by the black text typeset by LibreOffice
Writer). After the development, the red MS Word text is visible only at high
magnification next to the black Writer letters, as the line breaks are already
exactly the same:

Note: used only for DOCX interoperability yet (including for ODT files which
are converted from new DOCX files with space shrinking), but planned to be the
default justification algorithm of the next major versions of LibreOffice.


  * New search field in the Functions sidebar deck. tdf#122718 (Rafael Lima)
  * Number format: scientific format now supports and saves to ODF (tdf#153993
    and tdf#156449 Laurent Balland)
      + embedded text, with number format such as ###.000 E0
      + lower case for exponent, with number format such as ###.000e0
      + exponent with blank '?' instead of '0', with number format such as
  * Font is live-previewed again: it is temporarily applied on the selected
    cell(s) by hovering or navigating in the font dropdown (sidebar or
    toolbar). tdf#158320 (Caol??n McNamara, Collabora)
  * Shortcuts to switch sheets now work to cycle from last to first (Ctrl?+?Tab
    ?? or Ctrl?+?Page Down; ? Cmd?+?Tab ?? or ? Cmd?+?Page Down) and vice versa
    (Ctrl?+??? Shift?+?Tab ?? or Ctrl?+?Page Up; ? Cmd?+??? Shift?+?Tab ?? or ?
    Cmd?+?Page Up;). tdf#156311 (Denis Sorotnik)

Column/Row Highlighting for Active Cell

  * Inline (Visual) formula editing mode is now enabled by default, graduated
    from experimental mode feature core commit 2d47c824 (Khaled Hosny, TDF)

Core / General

  * A new calendar-based numbering scheme (YY.M.Patch) is introduced since this
    release. This will help users to more easily see how current their
    installed version of LibreOffice is.
  * Changes in automatic saving of documents: "Save AutoRecovery \ 
    is turned on by default, as well as "Always create backup copies". \ 
    copies accumulate in the folder specified by Tools ? Options ? LibreOffice
     ? Paths. Both settings can be turned off in Tools ? Options ? Load/Save ?
    General ? Save. tdf#152463 (Bogdan Buzea)
  * Fixed many AutoRecovery limitations and re-enabled AutoSave UI. Added
    "Place backup in same folder as document" option. tdf#65509 \ 
tdf#68565 tdf#
    57414 (Mike Kaganski / Justin Luth, Collabora)
  * Fixed various Notebookbar paper cuts: lots of menu improvements, better
    print preview support, proper reset of customized layout, better use of
    radio buttons, less "jumps" back to Home tab, no longer broken \ 
after file
    reload or print preview or master view. tdf#126006 tdf#125504 tdf#122270
    tdf#141136 tdf#148121 (Justin Luth)
  * Added search functionality to Tools ? Options. tdf#49895 (Bayram ?i?ek)
  * Automatically switching to dark app colors and a dark icon theme when a
    dark color scheme is configured in the desktop settings now also works for
    the Qt-based UI variants used e.g. by default on KDE Plasma. tdf#156894 tdf
    #149611 (Michael Weghorn)
  * Expert config now shows explanatory text to the config items in a tooltip
    tdf#157431 (Samuel Mehrbrodt, allotropia)
  * Expert config can now be filtered by modified values. Modified values are
    displayed in **bold** text. tdf#157432 (Samuel Mehrbrodt, allotropia)
  * Improved editing capabilities in Expert config dialog: (Samuel Mehrbrodt,
      + Proper input type validation
      + Editing lists in an own dialog
  * Sometimes spell checker algorithms send 2 lists for the same part of the
    sentence. One of the lists is sometimes empty. Now the non-empty list is
    shown on right click. (G?kay ?at??r, Collabora Productivity)
  * Null pointer issue in password-dialog / libreofficeKit is fixed. (G?kay ?at
    ??r, Collabora Productivity)
  * Duden corrector encoded text issue is fixed. (G?kay ?at??r, Collabora
  * Updated German language shortcuts for general compatibility. (G?kay ?at??r,
    Collabora Productivity)
  * In experimental mode, made the MAR-based automatic update available on TDF
    Windows 64-bit builds, see Tools ? Options ? Online Update ? Automatic
    Update. (Stephan Bergmann, allotropia)
  * On Windows, Alt?+?NumPad codes support had been enhanced to allow full
    Unicode range. Note that this interferes with shortcut handling;
    Alt?+?Number shortcuts now only work with main keyboard area numbers on
    Windows, not with NumPad numbers. Also note, that this enhancement does not
    include Windows' EnableHexNumpad registry setting support. tdf#156443 (Mike
    Kaganski, Collabora)
  * Introduced additional editable metadata fields Contributor, Coverage,
    Identifier, Publisher, Relation, Rights, Source, Type. See File ?
    Properties... ? Description. tdf#138792 (Sarper Akdemir, allotropia)


Orcus-based filters

The following improvements derive primarily from the 0.19 release of the orcus
library (Kohei Yoshida, allotropia).

  * Overhauled the Gnumeric import filter to fix bugs and add missing features.
    Most notable feature additions are:
      + cell styles
      + rich-text strings
      + named ranges
      + row heights and column widths
      + merged cells
  * Added support for importing rich-text strings in the Excel 2003 XML format.

Import of "Drawing Canvas" from docx-documents

Word has an object called "Drawing Canvas" where you draw shapes on \ 
it. They
are combined into one object, similar as grouping them. This drawing canvas has
to be used in Word, if the drawing contains connector shapes. Word writes this
object in two flavors to the file. One is the original drawing canvas in
DrawingML markup and the other is a fallback with reduced properties in VML
markup. Previous LibreOffice versions could only read the VML fallback. Now the
DrawingML is read. That gives you these new import features:

  * The drawing canvas background is imported.
  * Connectors are no longer imported as simple shapes but as true connectors,
    attached to the start and end shape.
  * Primitive shapes like ellipses are imported as ooxml-shape and thus text
    inside the shape can wrap now.
  * Shapes can use multicolor gradients, theme colors and glow effects.


ODF Wholesome Encryption

A new mode of password-based ODF encryption has been implemented, with the
following advantages:

  * more performant due to deriving a key only once per package
  * more tamper-resistant with authenticated encryption (AES-GCM)
  * better hiding of metadata to reduce information leaks
  * higher resistance to brute forcing using memory-hard Argon2id key
    derivation function

            You will need LibreOffice 24.2 to open these encrypted files. For
            this reason, by default the pre-existing standard ODF encryption is

This is available if Experimental Features are enabled in Tools ? Options ?
LibreOffice ? Advanced. tdf#105844 (Michael Stahl, allotropia)

OOXML SVG support

  * Support SVG OOXML extension (http://schemas.microsoft.com/office/drawing/
    2016/SVG/main namespace
  * Import the SVG image (svgBlip element) instead of the fallback PNG
  * Export the SVG image in addition to fallback PNG image, which is used if
    the svgBlip element is not supported (older MS Office versions). tdf#126084
    (Toma? Vajngerl, Collabora)


  * The Insert Special Characters dropdown now shows a character description
    for the selected character (and in tooltip on hovering). tdf#156538 (Jim
  * The save with password dialog now features a password strength meter that
    utilizes zxcvbn-c to determine the password strength. tdf#157518 (Sarper
    Akdemir, allotropia)

  * Turn Security Warnings popup windows into infobars to avoid annoying
    blocker warning dialogs. tdf#157482 (Bal??zs Varga, allotropia) - In the
    previous implementation, if the appropriate configuration options are
    enabled, a warning was issued and/or the personal information have been
    removed each time the document is saved. These Security Warnings popup
    windows have been turned into individual infobar warnings at the top of the
    page. The infobar can be displayed both for hidden and for personal
    information. In this way, the user receives a hint without significantly
    disrupting the workflow. A button on the banner could additionally open a
    dialog in which individual pieces of information can be removed.
  * Options dialog pages behaved inconsistently when options are locked down.
    Several of the UI elements do not reflect this by becoming disabled and
    displaying a lock icon on their left. By the end all the Options pages will
    work consistently when options are locked down. tdf#157698 (Bal??zs Varga,
  * Clarify the options dialog text around macro security settings, to specify
    exactly what is permitted, and what is prevented. tdf#157588 (G??bor
    Kelemen, allotropia)
  * It is now possible to reset the cropping for an image. tdf#86628 (Andrea


  * Tree views like the one in the Expert Configuration Dialog (reachable via
    Tools ? Options ? LibreOffice ? Advanced ? Open Expert Configuration) are
    now correctly exposed via accessibility APIs, so the table content is
    announced by screen readers. tdf#99609 (Michael Weghorn, TDF)
  * A system setting to reduce/disable animations is now honoured by
    LibreOffice to disable the "marching ants" animation when copying \ 
cells in
    Calc. (This is new in LibreOffice 24.2 for Windows and Linux; for macOS,
    this is already included in LibreOffice 7.6.) tdf#155414 (Patrick Luby;
    Michael Weghorn, TDF)
  * Issues in the handling of mouse positions in the Windows-specific
    accessibility implementation were fixed, so that the NVDA screen reader can
    announce the text of a Calc cell under the mouse pointer correctly. tdf#
    156679 (Michael Weghorn, TDF)
  * Various popup menus like the border line style control (e.g. used in
    Writer: Format ? Paragraph ? Borders ? Line ? Style) or the font color
    chooser (e.g. used in Writer: Format ? Character ? Font Effect ? Font Color
    ) are now correctly announced by the NVDA screen reader on Windows. tdf#
    101886 tdf#141101 tdf#156561 (Michael Weghorn, TDF)
  * The UNO grid control is now properly exposed to the accessibility layer and
    can therefore be announced by the NVDA screen reader. tdf#156473 (Michael
    Weghorn, TDF)
  * The multi line edit (e.g. used in the Help ? Check for Updates...) dialog
    now supports the accessible Text interface, which allows screen readers to
    announce its text content. tdf#104833 (Michael Weghorn, TDF)
  * An active-descendant-changed accessible events no longer gets incorrectly
    sent when a combobox value changes without the combobox being focused,
    which was causing confusing behavior with the NVDA screen reader in the
    print dialog. tdf#157137 (Michael Weghorn, TDF)
  * On Windows, the IAccessible2 role is now reported for frames, instead of
    reporting them as dialogs. Commit (Michael Weghorn, TDF)
  * Status bars in dialogs are now reported with the correct accessible role,
    so screen readers can find and report them accordingly. tdf#157639 (Michael
    Weghorn, TDF)
  * The content of the Tools ? Word Count... dialog is now announced by the
    NVDA screen reader on Windows when the dialog opens. tdf#157633 (Michael
    Weghorn, TDF)
  * On Windows, text attributes are now reported on the accessibility layer
    according to the IAccessible2 text attributes and object attributes
    specifications, no longer by using custom attribute names and values.
    Invalid spelling is now also reported via the corresponding text attribute.
    Together with a corresponding change in version 2024.1 of the NVDA screen
    reader, this makes announcement of misspelled words work when reading a
    line of text in Writer. tdf#157696 (Michael Weghorn, TDF)
  * On Windows, text alignment is now reported via the corresponding
    IAccessible2 object attribute, which makes it possible for assistive
    technology like the NVDA screen reader to announce it. tdf#135922 (Michael
    Weghorn, TDF)
  * Checkboxes in the spelling dialog can now be toggled using the space key
    tdf#135921 (Michael Weghorn, TDF)
  * Writer paragraphs using the "Block Quotation" paragraph style now \ 
also use
    the block quote accessibility role, which makes it possible for screen
    readers to announce them as block quotes. tdf#135586 (Michael Weghorn, TDF)
  * The VoiceOver screen reader on macOS no longer unhelpfully says \ 
    when a Writer paragraph or toolbar button receives focus. Commit (Michael
    Weghorn, TDF)
  * Toggle buttons can now be toggled using the corresponding accessible
    action, which e.g. allows screen readers to do so. tdf#112661 tdf#112662
    (Michael Weghorn, TDF)
  * The label for row and column headers in Calc is now reported via the
    "rowindextext" and "colindextext" object attributes as \ 
specified in the
    ARIA specification. The Orca screen reader makes use of these for the
    announcement of cells. tdf#158030 (Michael Weghorn, TDF)
  * The Orca screen reader on Linux now announces the current status of the
    underline toolbar button, i.e. it indicates whether underlining is
    currently active or not. tdf#123864 (Michael Weghorn, TDF)

Changes in UI strings

  * Language settings was changed to Languages and Locales in options. tdf#
    157716 (Aswath T)
  * Decimal separator key was changed to Decimal key on the numpad in options.
    tdf#113478 (Adoche Onaji)
  * Modify was changed to Assign in Customize dialog. tdf#155214 (Aswath T)
  * Scale was changed to As percentage of the parent in Area dialog tdf#154019.
    (Heiko Tietze, TDF)
  * Description was changed to Alt Text. tdf#155044 (Heiko Tietze / Ilmari
    Lauhakangas, TDF)
  * Evaluate up to level was changed to Include up to level in index dialog.
    tdf#157908 (Seth Chaiklin)
  * Add paragraph and table spacing at tops of pages was changed to Add
    paragraph and table spacing at top of first page and page breaks in
    options. tdf#141676 (Seth Chaiklin)
  * AutoUpdate changed to Automatic update from document in the Organize tab of
    Style dialog. tdf#149796 (Seth Chaiklin)
  * Instead of Widow and Orphan controls, the Text Flow tab of Paragraph Style
    dialog now talks about paragraph splitting. tdf#156795 tdf#156109 Samuel
    Mehrbrodt (allotropia)


  * LibreOffice is now available in Armenian

Armenian is an Indo-European language, spoken by 5??7 million people in the
Republic of Armenia and elsewhere in the world. The translation of LibreOffice
??s user interface was largely done by Tigran Zargaryan. Read more about this
in our blog

Improvements to proofing tools and language support


  * Slovenian thesaurus was updated (Martin Srebotnjak, OdprtiTezaver).



  * CCur now respects system locale. tdf#128122 (Jonathan Clark)

The ScriptForge libraries

An extensible and robust collection of macro scripting resources for
LibreOffice to be invoked from user Basic or Python scripts. (Jean-Pierre

The libraries expose a total of 32 services each with a bunch of methods and

New in LibreOffice 24.2:

  * The (new) Dataset service helps browsing through the data collected with
    tables, queries or SQL SELECT statements. Getting and updating records data
    is made easy with the use of dictionaries field name => field value. Binary
    fields can be extracted to files or updated with the content of files.
  * The Database service supports the transaction mode with in particular the
    Commit() and Rollback() methods.
  * Use the new filesystem property of the Document service to navigate through
    the internal file structure of documents like in usual folders and files.
  * The Files() and Subfolders() methods in the FileSystem service provide the
    list of files and folders present in a folder. They accept now an
    additional IncludeSubfolders boolean argument.
  * The UserData property of the Platform service gives access to the content
    of the equivalent page in the Tools/Options dialog.
  * The Documents service is enriched with a set of functions to manage styles.
    E.g. suppressing all unused styles can be done in a few lines of code.

The whole set of services (except when better done by native built-in
functions) is made available for Python scripts with identical syntax and
behaviour as in Basic.

The English version of the documentation of the ScriptForge libraries (24.2) is
fully integrated in the LibreOffice help pages (https://help.libreoffice.org/
24.2/en-US/text/sbasic/shared/03/lib_ScriptForge.html?DbPAR=BASIC). Their
translation into other languages is underway. (Alain Romedenne, Rafael Lima)

Feature Removal / Deprecation

  * Drop Impress/Draw's HTML Export wizard. Exporting to HTML from the UI
    behaves now the same way as using --convert-to \ 
    from the command line, the slides being exported as a single document. tdf#
    105303 (Xisco Fauli, TDF)
  * Removed FTP protocol support from LibreOffice, following browser vendors
    and general industry trends. tdf#146386, core commit 4a26dcac (Michael
    Stahl, allotropia)

Platform Compatibility

  * On Windows, text attributes are now reported on the accessibility layer
    according to the IAccessible2 text attributes and object attributes
    specifications, no longer by using custom attribute names and values.
    Assistive Technology that currently only supports the custom LibreOffice
    attributes needs to be adapted to support attributes according to the
    IAccessible2 specifications. For the NVDA screen reader, this has been
    implemented for the upcoming version 2024.1. tdf#157696
  * The minimum requirements for building and running LibreOffice on Linux have
    been raised from Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7/CentOS 7 to Red Hat Enterprise
    Linux 8/CentOS 8 (or equivalent). This also means that Qt 5.15 is the
    minimum supported Qt version for the Qt 5 based "VCL plugins" \ 
    core commit 02f48a32

API Changes

  * The constant group com.sun.star.sheet.NamedRangeFlag now supports the
    HIDDEN flag, which allows to hide named ranges from the UI. MSO
    compatibility with hidden named ranges is now supported as well. tdf#154449
    (Rafael Lima)
  * New UNO commands for Writer:
      + .uno:SpotlightParaStyles and .uno:SpotlightCharStyles for the Spotlight
        feature on Paragraph and Character styles respectively. They are now
        available in the menu: Format ? Spotlight tdf#156114 (Jim Raykowski)
      + .uno:InsertDateFieldVar and .uno:InsertTimeFieldVar for variable date
        and variable time fields respectively. This allows assigning shortcuts
        to both fixed and variable variants of the date and time fields. Both
        variants are now available from the menu: Insert ? Field. core commit
        6c073a18 (Xisco Fauli, TDF)

Configuration Changes

  * A new setting can be used to disable insecure network protocols (such as
