Build-in "xray" like UNO object inspector

There have been many implementations of different object inspector tools for LibreOffice, most popular being xray and MRI, but they were only available as extensions. This is an invaluable tools to inspect and to better understand the structure of UNO objects, which is particularly useful for writing macros or extensions. The problem is that the existing object inspector tools are not so simple to use, because of their nature as an extension and in addition the user has to search and install it in addition to LibreOffice. For this reasons TDF has offered a tender to implement a build-in tool, that can be more integrated into LibreOffice and is always available to the user. The tender has been awarded to Collabora and we are in the process of implementing it. In this talk we want to present the tool, what has been done so-far and how it will look like when finished.
