As of 1827739, the main/jvmaccess problem seems fixed, so AOO32 should be building on Windows64 again (without any special settings). Welcome back Patricia :). Damjan On Sat, Mar 24, 2018 at 3:10 PM, Matthias Seidel wrote: > Hi Patricia, > > Am 24.03.2018 um 13:54

I had to build with -std=c++11 on gcc 7. C++98 did not work as far as I remeber. C++17 did lead also to failure I believe. So I think we use features from the partial support already. Am 26. März 2018 03:03:56 MESZ schrieb Don Lewis : >On 25 Mar, Patricia Shanahan wrote: >>

A related problem to consider is the generally poor runtime environment support for using C++ between modules. On Windows, using C++ between different DLLs requires they were built by the same MSVC version and used the same CRT runtime settings, and I am finding that for the main/jvmaccess module

Well the Java section seems to need updated. I think we are now at 1.7 or 1.8 right? Or do we still support 1.5 & 1.6? Don't think so. (And no body uses those versions I guess) On Windows we agreed on continued support of Windows XP. However should we maybe add ReactOS as official support? I

Will do. I'll try to initially pick arrays that have relatively limited scope. The highest risk seem to be those that are filled during document open - those are the ones where a malicious actor might be able to force an array overflow. On 3/25/2018 4:10 AM, Peter Kovacs wrote: Welcome back

Currently, AOO uses a lot of finite size arrays. Ideally, overflows will be detected and lead to an error message, but that still prevents processing of the user's documents. Computer memories and swap spaces are still increasing in size, so the array size limits are more likely to be the

Documents that are to large for the memory available will also fail to load in  the 1st approach. To add array review mechanism is in my opinion only a source of errors. I think STL should be used. +1 for not hiding the exceptions. Maybe we could catch exception on document level quickly and
