2018 week 27 LibreOffice log

Notebookbar

Week 27 start with the hard string freeze for 6.1 So I was a bit hurry to submit the last patches for Notebookbar implementations to get everything translated. Thanks to Cloph I get everything into 6.1. After that the second part was the Notebookbar codebase changes made from GSOC student Kshitij Pathania and his mentor Szymon Kłos. I don’t know how but everything was backported to 6.1 and so our experimental users can test the different Notebookbar implementations so that we hopefully get an awesome NB release with 6.2. Bugfixing was no on top of the todo list.

Icon Themes

Colibre icons get full support for 32px icon size so you can change in Options -> View -> Toolbar icon size -> Extra Large. General Colibre icon size bugfixing was always in focus to get an awesome initial Colibre icon theme release.

ToolbarSize

Elementary icon theme is now default on all GTK platforms so they get some updates to get ready for the 6.1 release.

Breeze icons get also some updated icons for a wonderful 6.1 release.

Tango icons was default on Windows and GTK platforms in 6.0 but in 6.1 it want be default any more. There are some reason first is the lack of maintainer. As galaxy icons were dropped from the core LibreOffice repository (available via the extension webpage) tango icons need some tweaks to get ready for 6.1 without galaxy.

In general Colibre, Breeze and Elementary should be ready for 6.1 and the new icons needed for the different Notebookbar implementations. Some minor work has to be done next week.

Menubar

I love the LibreOffice menubar and Jay did a great work in the last releases but the layout of the different LibreOffice apps were not 100% consistent so I submit some patches to get a better synchronization between the different apps.

Result

For the full list of changes check the gerrit history log I’m talking about 30 patches. In the next weeks I’ll work on the different icon themes I’m the maintainer and submit missing icons to Colibre, Breeze and Elementary icon theme to get a gread 6.1 release.
