Calligra/2.2 Changelog

Jump to: navigation, search

KOffice 2.2 contains more than 3000 changes. Hundreds of commits have gone into the creation of import filters for the Office 2007 file formats: .docx, .pptx and .xlsx. These filters are now usable, though not yet perfect (of course). Hundreds more commits have gone into the improvement of the binary Microsoft Office document file format import filters: .doc, .ppt and .xls. With the help of Nokia, the kofficetests repository has been extended with an enormous collection of problematical or interesting test documents.

The libraries have been refactored and their API reviewed as a step towards making it attractive to develop third-party software on top of the KOffice platform. Kexi has come back into the fold, while Krita is becoming more and more an independent project.

An attempt was made to make KOffice compile and run correctly not only on Linux/Intel platforms, but also Windows, OSX, Solaris and ARM-based platforms.

This is an extensive overview of all important changes committed during the 2.2 development period, which lasted from October 24th 2009 until April 24th 2010.

Libraries

Flake

The big new feature in Flake and Karbon is the effect filter framework. To any element in a document a stack of effects like blurring can be added. There have also been many performance optimizations, crash fixes and correctness fixes.

  • Cleanup of the public API of Flake
  • Implement a new framework to apply effect filters to shapes and shape groups (e.g., blur any vector shape)

  • Fix a memory leak

Main

The main new feature in the Main library, which handles high level window, view and document management has been the addition of <a href="http://monkeyiq.blogspot.com/2010/01/koffice-and-rdf-say-it-with-style.html">the RDF framework</a>.

  • Implement support for RDF

  • Fix bug 228029: Only show the filename in the window title.
  • Fix bug 215409: crash on closing an application

Pigment

For Pigment, the color management and manipulation library, the big thing has been making Pigment itself independent of <a href="http://www.littlecms.com">LittleCMS</a>. LittleCMS support has moved to a plugin, which is essential for Krita to run, but not for the other applications. This way, applications that do not need color management can save runtime memory consumption as well as gain startup speed.

  • Fix crash when grabbing an alpha color space
  • Hide the cloning and deletion of color spaces: fixes memory leaks
  • Cache color spaces for performance improvements
  • Implement floating point alpha channel handling
  • Speed up the conversion between float/integers
  • Fix bug 227506: Ignore color space that don't have a factory when grabbing, fix crash when applying tonemapping
  • Fix bug 231418: painting and adding layer on non 8bits images
  • Fix bug 218091: always fallback to one of the profiles if no profile wasn't found so far
  • Fix bug 228173: fix crash in color curve filter by making sure that the best histogram producer is the one that match both color depth and color model
  • Fix bug 224233: Don't crash if we cannot find a profile

KSpread

An enormous amount of work has been committed on KSpread. There is now a functional Excel 2007 import filter, and the legacy Excel 2000/2003 import filter has seen many improvements. But KSpread itself has seen improvements all over the place: rich text in cells, calculation correctness, many crash fixes, as well as a new default layout for the gui.

  • Add import filter for Excel 2007 documents (.xlsx files)
  • New default layout for the GUI (dockers, toolbox, toolbars)
  • Allow "." (dot) in identifiers, following the ODF spec
  • implement the MULTIPLE.OPERATIONS function
  • Fix crash on exit by don't trying to save changes on exit in endReferenceSelection.
  • Fix dangling pointer crash if the FormulaDialog survived the cellEditor by making sure the FormulaDialog is destroyed too if the cellEditor got destroyed.
  • Fix crash if the first column/row was used for operations like inserting a cell.
  • Fix handling of dates. The Value::Format logic does not work correct here and we need to set the FormatType manually and need to rebuild the style from scratch after changing it.
  • Basic display of datetime date in the cell
  • OO.org Calc and Excel operations done with +, -, * and / do fail if one of the values is non-numeric. KSpread does behave the same now and displays an #value error in that case. This differs from formulas like SUM which ignore non numeric values.
  • Fix #REF error for invalid cell/sheet references
  • Fix generic format was selected rather then currency if no currency format was provided. We are using the default format now in that case.
  • Fix crash on saving if the currentCellStyle was not located in the mainStyles.
  • Fix handling of text:span elements. Now text:a elements will even be discovered if embedded in a text:span element.
  • Both, '!' and '.', are valid sheet delimiters. This fixes links between sheets in ODS documents that are using the '.' char as delimiter. Every other place in KSpread handles it already except the sheet-filter which is used for links between sheets.
  • Fix handling of ASIN, COS and ACOS by stricter checking the argument as described in the specs.
  • Do the same OO.org and Excel do and don't show the formula indicator by default. This gets right of all those blue little triangles in cells with formulas. They can still be enabled per sheet/document by using the sheet-properties.
  • add (very basic) support for style:font-name as a way of specifying the font to use
  • better handling of negative values in fractionFormat
  • Always set the user input to the actual value read from the cell, and not whatever happens to be set as text, as the textual representation of a value may be less accurate than the value itself, and thus can not be trusted to be what the user entered.
  • make loading of fraction styles a bit more robust
  • fix bug where StyleManager::style() could return 0 when name=="Default" by adding an extra check to make sure m_styles actually contains a style with the given name before returning it
  • fix saving of column styles; previously the column style of the first column after a bunch of empty/default columns would not be saved as the number of adjacent empty columns was calculated to be 1 too high
  • Added Header/Footer Printing functionality
  • Support sheet names.
  • Performance improvement: Only update relevant region. This bug changed the complexity of updating a changed region from O(n) to O(n^2). Which was the reason that large documents with lots of charts in it practically never finished loading.
  • Basic rich text support in KSpread; currently loading, saving and rendering mostly works, editing is not really possible yet
  • Improve password protection
  • Use currency formatting for numbers pre- and post-fixed with currency symbols
  • Fix saving named areas. Now this can be read again by OpenOffice.org and KSpread.
  • Improve currency support
  • Fix crash on save by explicit allowing maximal KS_colMax/KS_rowMax
  • Fix crash if the saved cursor-position is beyond the boundaries.
  • Thumbnail support for KSpread
  • Fix crash if an invalid Binding() was created.
  • Fix handling of percent formatting. Only add the % sign if the formatting mask does not already define it. This prevents displaying of two % signs of the formatting mask already defines the postfix to display.
  • Increase the range where a number is detected as plain number rather then as scientific number to be closer to the value oo.org uses and don't choose to early to switch a plain number to a scientific number.
  • Lots of bounds checking for the maximum number of rows and columns KSpread supports
  • Implement the intersection operator
  • Do as OpenOffice.org and treat empty references as 0.
  • Mimic OpenOffice.org and give precedence to the already applied style instead of the cell style for currency cells.
  • Don't relay on table:columns to be defined to determinate the table's dimension but be more flexible in the interpretation and allow the cells themselves to define the dimension too. This is inline with how OpenOffice.org behaves if not columns are defined minues the obscure 'cells exceed maximum' error-message oocalc displays but then continues.
  • Support style:shrink-to-fit in KSpread: Shrink the font size to make the displayString fit the cell
  • fix the KSpread default docker layout to be somewhat more sane
  • Load shape size correctly for shapes anchored to a cell
  • Made loading datetimes from ODF work as expected. This fixes the datetime-tests in http://plugtest.opendocsociety.org/doku.php?id=scenarios:20100415:yearfrac
  • fix bug in loading of merged cells in repeated rows, the merging should apply to the cell in all the rows
  • fix the sumif function; the 3rd parameter specifies the location of where to get values to sum, it doesn't specify the exact range
  • fix parsing of range reference that include explicit sheet names in both first and second cell of range.
  • fix dependency calculation, don't skip the first cell in each row when calculating dependencies.
  • Don't take forever saving a document because generating a thumbnail tries to render the entire document. Drawing just the top 100x100 cells should be more than enough
  • make the Areas function work as expected when a union of regions is passed as parameter
  • Fix ASC function. Its just conversion to single byte chars and NOT the text "FIXME ASC()" :-/
  • Fix display #value error rather then #na error like oo.org.
  • Fix the SUBTOTAL formula.
  • added the FORMULA function which allows to return the string representation of a cell's formula.
  • Fix ROUNDUP() and ROUNDDOWN() functions to behave like it's done in OpenOffice.org.
  • Fix one more yearfrac testcase from http://plugtest.opendocsociety.org/doku.php?id=scenarios:20100415:yearfrac
  • Make KSpread support input methods (for Chinese, for instance)
  • Fix performance issue when displaying the sheet
  • fix drawing of sloped down angled text
  • improve handling of horizontal alignment with vertical text
  • change the way wrapped text is rendered. Previously when wrapped text didn't fit in the cell, KSpread wouldn't wrap it at all, now it still wraps the text and just clips it to whatever fits in the cell
  • Improve text rendering: Use a font created on a KoPostscriptPaintDevice when painting to make sure we get the exact same dimensions as what was there during calculation of the size of the text.
  • Fix drawing of grid border and colored cells
  • Fix thai text.
  • Add unit test for the two-parameter version of MID which exposes a Qt bug, and add workaround for that bug.
  • DateTime conversion in the excelimporter: proper conversion for values passed as date time from .xls to .ods.
  • Implement the BAHTTEXT function that converts a number to a text in Thai characters (baht).
  • Implement global Name FormulaToken and fix ExternName FormulaToken.
  • Add support for vertical alignments Distributed and Justified when loading excel files
  • Eval also style:map's that are located in the styles.xml.
  • Handle all supported image formats (empf, wmf, pict, jpeg, png, dib and tiff). code borrowed from libppt.
  • Handle Excel's workbook/sheet protection
  • Set Text-Under-Icons text-position for all toolbars
  • Fix crash in KSpread on closing a document while the textshape was selected.
  • Make KSpread use conditional styles. Number precision from number format string, if provided.
  • Fix accounting format
  • Fix rich text detection in KSpread: There is no need to interpret text as rich text just because the element has a <text:s> child (spaces) (also ignored: <text:tab> (\t)).
  • Fix bug 201312: crash in KSpread trying to edit cell containing an incomplete equation
  • Fix bug 198667: column/row actions.
  • Fix bug 216761: the table was put to 0 before to deactivate the the cell, but the mouseMove for instance is still called, it crashed.
  • Fix bug 207584: crash on pasting odf with a spreadsheet
  • Fix bug 186626: table shape crashes on choosing the sheet in the tool options

  • XLS filter: Write also the settings.xml to include settings like the activate sheet
  • XLS filter: made also initial cursorPositions and scrollPositions work
  • XLS filter: load from excel also if the grid should be display, if zero values should be displayed, if we are in page-break-view mode to set the page-borders and if automated calculation is enabled/disabled.

  • XLS filter: Fix time formatting.
  • XLS filter: Fixed time-values always where 0:00 cause of an invalid value for the ms (the , char) plus a wrong place for the second char S.
  • XLS filter: Fix handling of dates.

  • XLS filter: Evaluate also the number:min-integer-digits of fractions
  • XLS filter: Handle also the other way Excel specifies conditional formats.
  • XLS filter: Fix ROUNDUP, ROUNDDOWN and ROUND functions.
  • XLS filter: Fix handling of currency symbol formats like €, $, £ and Â¥ and there country and language associations.
  • XLS filter: save the font-family in the fo:font-family attribute, not in the style:font-name attribute; style:font-name would require a separate font-face style declaration that has the actual font definition
  • XLS filter: properly set default cell styles on rows and columns as read from the xls file
  • XLS filter: in odf default-cell-style's only apply to cells (or at least columns) that are present in the file in xls though row styles should apply to all cells in that row, so make sure to always write out 256 columns
  • XLS filter: Parsing Header/Footer information from Excel file. Now KoGenStyles are used for saving style info.
  • XLS filter: handle the text formatting
  • XLS filter: bit better position+size for images but still not like Excel :-/

  • XLS filter: fix width+height of images
  • XLS filter: Start to use the NumberFormatParser for pre-XML Excel
  • XLS filter: Improve saving of settings, including protection: use own tags for both to be sure that oo.org ignores the protection (oo.org uses an own hack, 'VelvetSweatshop' :-) )
  • XLS filter: Implement handling of patterns
  • XLS filter: Finally fixed the SUBTOTAL formula.
  • XLS filter: More robust hyperlink-logic. Also fixed exclusive linkName vs text-content handling.
  • XLS filter: Limit processing of rows*columns to KSpreads maximal supported number of rows*columns. This should get right of long load-times for rows*columns that KSpread does not process at the end anyway.
  • XLS filter: A row can have a body without having a rowstyle. Handle that case by moving the row-compression logic to the rowsRepeated method and let it dynamically look-up if the value was not cached before. This fixes an assert with an interesting document that seems to contain lots of bug-triggers :)
  • XLS filter: Set the pie-explode factor.
  • XLS filter: Improve XML produced by the xls filter — make it correct.
  • XLS filter: un-break row-repeat logic.
  • XLS filter: fix loading datetimes like those in http://plugtest.opendocsociety.org/lib/exe/fetch.php?media=scenarios:20100415:yearfrac.xls
  • XLS filter: fix caching of rows repeated values. using row index as a key doesn't really work when there is more than one sheet in the document
  • XLS filter: Implement support for loading shared formulas (when the same formula is used in multiple cells excel only needs to save one copy of the actual formula). This adds support for the SHAREDFMLA record and the REFN formula token.
  • XLS filter: Add support for internal references to other sheets. Only simple cell references for now, no support for area references yet.
  • XLS filter: Also add support for area references to other sheets in the same workbook (area3d token)
  • XLS filter: Add support for AreaN tokens
  • XLS filter: Add support for data tables to the xls import filter
  • XLS filter: Fix the decodeRK code; integer/100 is not always an integer, so don't pretend it is
  • XLS filter: Improve Unicode support
  • XLS filter: Implement Hyperlinks
  • XLS filter: Make custom formatting work
  • XLS filter: Fix MINUTE formula, added deprecated comment for those formulas that are deprecated by Excel itself
  • XLS filter: Implement areaMap's which are a form of array's. Since they can be used in various formulas and some formulas even require sich areaMap's, this will make a lot of formulas work correct that did not before.
  • XLS filter: Implement token's with id 0. The are named "continuous records" in the excel jargon and need to be ignored. This gets right of the "Unknown" text's that are sometimes in a formula without a logical reason.
