OOo vs. StarOffice

Daniel Naber-9
Hi,

StarOffice used to be different from OOo when it comes to the
lingucomponent parts (spelling, thesaurus, hyphenation). Now that these
parts use the extension system, is StarOffice compatible, i.e. can all OOo
extensions directly be used in StarOffice?

Regards

StarOffice nowadays has the same linguistic components as OOo. And so
all dictionary extensions work in both products. All extensions for OOo
also always worked in the corresponding StarOffice versions and this
will stay the same in future.

The only exception until now was that StarOffice didn't contain PyUNO,
so Python based extensions didn't work in StarOffice. But this also has
changed, PyUNO is available as optional component both in OOo and
StarOffice.

Ciao,
Mathias

Please don't reply to "[hidden email]".
I use it for the OOo lists and only rarely read other mails sent to it.
