It basically means that internally the graphic objects are not exchanged
using a metafile in old metafile format with integer coordinates, but
primitves are used directly with all their possibilities. This removes two
transformation steps and avoids losing quality, thus being faster and
qualitatively better, e.g. when having charts with more than 65535 data
points (the maximum for polygons in metafiles). Also positions are better
due to double precision when zooming in or needing high resolutions. The
main advantage is that 3d charts do not need to be visualized as bitmaps
(metafiles do not know 3d at all, thus they need to be transported as
bitmap), but stay in 3d geometry for visualisation. To see the advantages,
try to zoom into a 3d chart in OOO3.3 and AOO3.4. This also gives enhanced
printing and exports, too. One of the features which were forgotten to be
mentioned in some publications recently...
