Weeks 17-22

Better switching between icon sets. Implemented the switching itself and GUI for that. The actual state is not yet saved, so OOo still starts with the icon set according to the desktop.

AMD64 porting.

  • First working version of the bridge; compiles well, the exceptions work. Todo: returning of small structs (<= 16 bytes; it is done in registers on AMD64). Big thanks to Honza Hubicka for a lesson about trampolines and libffi ;-)
  • Fixed several 64bit crashers (saving a pointer in an int, LONG_MAX in int for indication of un-initialized value, ...)
  • Fixed calculation of desktop size on 64bits.
  • Several fixes of the patches after updates to newer milestones.
  • etc.
In all, the 64bit OOo starts (of course not out-of-the-box, without Java, etc.), and I was able to write there, or load a document ;-)

Crystal icons for OOo. Made a new release (ooo_crystal_images-6.tar.bz2). 298 icons to do (from 907 total).

KDE fpicker.

  • Fixed disappearing filters in Insert->Picture->From File...
  • Adapted to changes in resource manager so that the checkboxes like "Read-only", "Add extension", etc. have their labels again.

Submitted a paper for the KDE conference.

Build bits. Fixed several patches to apply well, updated the "apply" file and some patches to a newer milestone, etc.
