LibreOffice Quantal features: Unity Integration, PackageKit and Templates
So the Ubuntu Developer Summit for Raring Ringtail (UDS-R) is starting tomorrow -- although not exactly a slide-heavy conference, this is still an excellent opportunity to point out some of the new features available in LibreOffice 3.6.2 that comes with the just released Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal):
- first of all: all the nifty new upstream features like color scales, data bars, pdf watermarks, Office SmartArt import, Corel Draw import and much, much more ...
- thanks to the awesome work of Antonio Fernandez of Aentos: unity menu integration making lo-menubar as a separate package obsolete
- PackageKit/Session Installer integration and a new package with a set of excellent templates by Alexander Wilms. There were even more high quality templates created by other contributors -- I plan to add those with the next release.
For the next LibreOffice release, the template installer has to be adopted to the cool work of Rafael on the template dialog. I plan to upstream both the unity and the session installer integration for the next LibreOffice release.
This series of screenshots shows all of this in action:
