The only thing I imply is that new major release is enhanced by
useless formats. These files are dead, they come from dead software
and in bugzilla system you won't find even one bugreport relevant to!
Linux is alive platform and encrypted ODF files are in common usage.
It would be great if elementary functionality just works instead of
adding features no one needed.

More visible? Apart from this, I asked people on IRC channel
(libreoffice-dev) to glance at this issue. I got 2 answers: "Calm dam.
You reported this bug a few days ago, and developers still have much
time!". Second one: "yeah! ask them (developers) to give you back your
money". Later I tried to interest Joel Madero but he wrote back he has
freedom of choose and he is not interested this bugreport. My bad
luck. Under Leif Lodahl's blog post (
) someone pointed out that TDF supports dead formats but doesn't care
for StarOffice formats which are still in usage. I made my comment
about lack of support for encrypted ODF files. And you know what? This
comment was blocked and never published. So don't tell me I am do
nothing (referring to your post on fdo) because for this period I was
treated only like intruder.

You fix it in 15 minutes? Great! So now many people can just wait next
half of year to 4.2 release. Thanks a lot for attention.
