Hi :)
A thread from the users list.  There was a suggestion about writing some sort of 
documentation for helping people write extensions so i gave them this link

They had already posted a bug-report here
and i have copied our list of external guides to that report too and also taken 
the opportunity to invite more devs to join the docs team.  

Regards from
Tom :)

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] unopkg error

Hi Jay,

I have modified the QuantLib addin code so that it runs under Linux and Windows 
XP (using Openoffice 3.2.1). Under Libreoffice the code compiles and the oxt 
file will be created but loading of the addin (using the oxt file) fails with an 
error message under Linux. 

Was there any change in the api of Libreoffice? What do I have to change/add to 
get a working addin? Is there any documentation or are there any C++ addin 
examples that can be used? The examples in the SDK (code examples under 
$SDK/examples/cpp) are not helpful. It seems that there have been no changes. So 
I expect that the code for the Quantlib addin need not be modified. Any ideas?

What do I have to change to get a working addin using libreoffice?

Jetzt informieren:

I would check OOo to see if they have an updated version and check and . Plugins, unless
they are official ones, may lag the release somewhat some if they need
significant changes they may not work with the latest version.
