Subject [RELEASE][3.4.1]: current status update
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2012 16:56:22 GMT

I would like to give a short update where we are and what I would like
to propose.

We had investigated in - Inserting a slide
in presentation will freeze AOO with clean environment.

It seemed to be a threading issue in this special scenario where many
things have influence. Bundled extension are using a separate new uno
process the first time the office is started and until the office gets
restarted. We found a fix to prevent the deadlock but the risk is high
to break something else and we looked for an alternative fix.

We analyzed pre-registered (prereg) extension and tried to prereg the
minimizer and the presenter screen. This worked quite well so far but it
means that both extension are not longer visible in the extension
manager. This is the designed and expected behaviour for prereg
extensions because some "clever" people thought that these extension are
part of the office and can be seen as by default supported features.

I would like to suggest that we integrate the minimizer and presenter
screen extensions as prereg extensions in AOO 3.4.1. We probably all
agree that both extensions provide useful features that should be
available by default.

For the future we can think of an integration in the core and drop the
extensions completely to reduce the complexity. But this can be defined

We do currently some further tests ...
