A @libreoffice
icon design that I submitted a few months ago. Not chosen by TDF members but I won't delete it bcz I love it. Made by help of @inkscape

See other proposals: wiki.documentfoundation.org/De (actually the branding effort is more about app icons, not merely mimetype)

@al1r4d If you can do a test (eg using the "time" command to get a specific and reproducible number), please report it to our QA community. Thank you! 😊

Got a lot of extensions in your LibreOffice installation? In our next major release – LibreOffice 7.4, due in a few weeks – you can now search quickly. Thanks to Samuel Mehrbrodt at Allotropia for adding this feature! wiki.documentfoundation.org/Re

@tobtobxx Well, that's for compatibility with other office suites. Maybe we can make it even bigger in future, but then a database is probably better 😉

@tobtobxx Hmm, well, the amount of columns has to be stored in a number somewhere. And those have upper limits 😉 More here: en.cppreference.com/w/c/types/

(Of course, when you're working with such large amounts of data, you might want to consider using Base...)

This is the latest iteration of the new app icons based on your feedback. It's still subject to tweaks, in particular the start center icon. What do you think?
