Subject AOO 3.4 and beyond, looking at AOO 4.0
Date Mon, 09 Jan 2012 10:56:56 GMT

As we come closer to a release of AOO 3.4, the first Apache OpenOffice 
release and the first one managed under the control of the new Apache 
OpenOffice project, I think that now it is also a good time to look 
forward to our next release (AOO 4.0) and what we want to bring in this 

I would like to propose a new wiki page 
where we can collect and document all things that we would like to 
address in our next release. I have already started to list some things 
where we (wearing my IBM hat) would like to concentrate on and I would 
like to encourage all of you to extend this list with your own things 
where you would like to work on.

You know IBM has announced that they will contribute the changes (bug 
fixes, performance improvements, new features or general improvements) 
from Symphony to the new AOO project and prerequisite for contributing 
these changes have been reached with an IP cleaned AOO 3.4 and the 
consistent licensing under ALv2. We can now start to contribute these 
changes to move the project forward, make it faster and better and show 
our commitment to be an active member of the Apache OpenOffice community.
