Re: Wharever happened to Libre Office for OS4?

Cinnamon Writer looks promising to me. As for Final Writer, Wordworth, etc. In terms of functionality that I personally need, they already had enough. Other people might need more obviously. I thought that if they had the ability to import and export DOCX files, that would be enough for me. I always wondered about what it would take to write a converter program for final writer <-> docx but never really investigated it further

That is something I do not understand... there was a call recently to pay Kals bills because he is running out of money. If I would be in his situation priority one would be to complete Final Writer because you can earn money with it.

I expect, you won’t use it, if you had to save, and the convert it, if you can just save in a different program on different OS, or doing it on office365 on the web, or using google docs, even if its slower.

Export to PDF, might also be something people like to have, more and more sending PDF files over email, instead of printed documents.

Ritch text format, was kind of the universal format before docx, but it was blamed for the spared of viruses, but I’m pretty sure, that more problem with programs viewing the documents, and outlook that spoofing files, by allowing attachments to include attachment of wrong file type in the mime header, sadly Microsoft developers suck, so they will never get it fixed. Can only expect its feature / backdoor for government agency. Because MS blocked sharing .exe files, it’s become common knowledge that change filename, or trick outlook, I guess its feature now, if they remove security hole, people will complain. Maybe they had to have that because self-extracting zip files. who knows.

Well, graphics is already about converting everything... especially as PNG isn't supported in old software. Spreadsheets too.

Old software can load PNG images, if the software support datatypes, but often what old software does not support is alpha channel in the picture.

This has happened before, but we don't really know how much time he has for working on side-projects. Leaving personal matters aside, software that's released certainly makes more money than one that's in development forever.

This is just like television, only you can see much further.

You might be right, but if it was integrated using an ARexx script that would make it more user-friendly. I think if the conversion option was there, we'd see how much it would be used.

In Final Writer, at least, you can already do this. I've got an ARexx script that prints to postscript and then converts it to PDF.

Certainly a viable finished product does make more than one in development forever. The issue has been there's been a bit more to it than a recompile. Finalwriter is old software and as such development needed to adapt for 64Bit etc. Also there's been some major enhancements internally not just superficial ones. As for the AOS4 port well that comes down to once I release the AROS and MorphOS versions having the money to pay a developer to do the port.

Changes so far.

Updated RTF
Libharu implemented(PDF Saving/Printing Support)
MySpell(Updated Spell Checker) Spell checker can now work real time.
Libcurl Support for direct printing.
64Bit fixes
Modernizing layout
P96 Support.
I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.

And as for Kalmatee he's dropped all AROS development and refuses to return. I can't say he never will but currently he's happier avoiding it.

There's been 5 developers who have worked on the current version.

How far is it to release state? I mean, what else needs to be done?

I'm prety sure, that Calligra suite would be easier and that way more possible than OpenOffice. At least if debendies are mostly already OK, except KDE libraies.

Many bugs are left to be fixed from those ones which are found already? What i mean, maybe it's already enough for the first release?

you also have scribus 1.5.7, it does require Qt (IIRC). but it is surprisingly small footprint ~25MB source code, runs under linux, windows and mac, could perhaps be possible to run it very well on the slowest of os4 machines.

Is there a reason why open office would not be portable under AmiCygnix?

AbiWord seems capable enough. Opened doc and docx so is there really still a need or desire for OpenOffice?
