OOXML strict support in Libreoffice


Recently it came to our attention that we can only handle OOXML transitional and the older Microsoft dialect of OOXML. A short analysis of the document showed that OOXML strict uses different namespaces and different relationship URLs.

After two days of hacking and a lot of help from Miklos Vajna, who fixed the docx import problems, we support now OOXML strict import in master and in the Libreoffice 4-2 branch.

Please test this feature with a daily build or with the upcoming Libreoffice 4.2.3 and report problems that you have with OOXML strict.
