SI-GUI statistics

Hi,

I have not talked mich about SI-GUI statistics lately so here some numbers ๐Ÿ˜‰

Since logging every action (this can be turned off)…

  • 6990 parallel installation have been started (and 6022 of them finished successfully)
  • 6327 downloads have been started with 4833 fining their way in the download statistics [if someone has problem downloading LibreOffice, please tell me]
  • Most people use English (4338), Frenchย  (1669), Spanish (1251) and German (1327)

There have been SI-GUI version with bugs in reporting, which could hint to the numbers are not 100% accurate (to low and not to high BTW)

I hope it is still useful for the 33 people, which used this tool in the last week. Do you think it will stay relevant when auto updating nightly builds are implemented?

Yours,

Florian

OOXML – Bug to bug compatibility needed to Word

As you know I often publish things how good Microsoft office adheres to it’s own standard.

It should be known that LibreOffice needs to produce non-conform OOXML (docx,xlsx etc.) files to be able to open files created with Microsoft Word.

This time linking to the commit message of one of our developers as a proof ๐Ÿ˜‰

LibreOffice can open XLSX files Excel cannot

Just a quick heads up. I just created and saved an Excel file using Excel 2016, which cannot be opened again with it. Glad our swiss army knife LibreOffice can ๐Ÿ˜‰

It’s funny to see Excel can open the ODS I created using LibreOffice (as source I used the XLSX file) better than it’s “native” format….

Here is a short “proof” video:ย https://youtu.be/bM7UOkqQTqw
