Challenges for LibreOffice on OS X

LibreOffice (and OpenOffice before that) has been available on the Mac for a long time. However, the way it looks and feels on the platform is becoming more and more outdated. Something needs to be done.

Details of the Talk

In this talk I will go through the more urgent areas that need to be fixed for LibreOffice to be really "native" on OS X, considering what OS X looks like today. The state of OS X has not been stagnant since was ported to "native Mac OS X" many years ago (previously OOo used the X Window System also on the Mac). The requirements for an application to really feel "native" are more advanced now, and many new technologies have been introduced into OS X that applications should use in order to have credibility.
