Hi NoOp,

I see; not trying to not shooting the messenger - thanks Alex ;-)

So will this be yet another 'improvement feature' like removing the text
boundaries[1] in Writer? Should we toss all of our pre-mork .odb's?

To be honest, I don't know, as I haven't really played around with it in
a "before" and "after" situation. On Mac, one couldn't access
Thunderbird addressbooks anyway prior to LO4, so at least for that OS,
there's been an improvement ;-)

From what I understand, the mork driver is a work in other
words, basic functionality works for one address book, things like
lists, other address books, etc, do not yet work, and the table will
remain read-only (as was the case with the mozab driver), in order to
avoid potentially nasty conflicts of write operations when having the
address book table open in TB and LO at the same time...


[replace mozilla address book parser with a new implementation that
doesn't link to mozilla libraries]

They've certainly accomplished the "doesn't link to mozilla libraries"
part; not only can you not access your other Thunderbird addressbooks,
but you can no longer access *any* other Mozilla (SeaMonkey for example)
addressbooks. If you rename the ~/.thunderbid directory, you get a "The
file $finame$ could not be loaded." That also applies to any previous
.odb's with non-Thunderbird addressbooks (links are all that the .odb uses).

Found this:
[Address Book Data Source Wizard lists "Mac OS X address book" on Linux]
which seems to shed some light on the issue (sdbc:address:mozilla: etc).
