guadec 2015 porting LibreOffice to gtk3 slides

Presented our porting LibreOffice to GTK3 presentation at GUADEC yesterday. Here, as hybrid pdf, are those slides with a rough guide to our architecture there and current wayland progress.

It was pointed out after the presentation (by jrb), that our gtk3-themed spinbuttons had the up and down buttons in +,- order instead of the correct -,+ order. So that's fixed now.

crash testing, 80000 documents, 0 export failures, 0 import failures

The last LibreOffice crashtesting run reports our goal of 0 import/export crash/asserts. This is on a refreshed up to date 80000 docuent corpus from various bugzillas and other sources.

Earlier runs had been over a static collection of 76000 documents, hopefully now we have zeroed the dials we can refresh the corpus far more frequently, perhaps on every run, and actively trawl for crasher documents.

LibreOffice on wayland

Hacked LibreOffice a bit more today towards wayland support via the gtk3 vclplug. Good news is that it launches, displays and you can interact with it mostly as expected.

Under F22 with a gnome-on-wayland session, GDK_BACKEND=wayland ./soffice.bin gives me...


Which is encouraging as this morning I had no window contents at all. Downside is that I can't resize the window and the menubar is displayed behind the title bar. Maybe a client side decoration issue.

gtk auto-mnemonics support

Thanks to Simon Long over at raspberrypi, we now have auto-mnemonics support in LibreOffice under gtk3 and gtk2. So the underlines appear in dialogs when alt is pressed and disappear when released, while menus activated from the keyboard show underlines while those activated from the mouse don't. Gives a more native flavour to the UI. Only in 5.1 for the moment.
