Layout & Canvas & Slideshow - selected topics for the graphics hackers

This talk will give an introduction to areas inside OOo amenable to graphics hackers - stuff that has the desirable property of instant visual gratification.

Layout: there's currently work underway to give OOo's dialogs an auto-layouting facility. Besides work on the layouting core, there's also help solicited for converting existing dialogs to the new layout-enabled scheme.

Canvas: the new OOo rendering subsystem, and what it can do; showing a prototype of an OpenGL-based implementation plus pointers where interested hackers can start helping Slideshow: probably the easiest way to make an impact to millions of OOo users is to code another Impress 3D slide transition – here's how to do that.
