For the DocumentInfo - that changed from 3.x to 4.x, I use the following:

   If HasUnoInterfaces(ThisComponent, 
"") Then
    ' 3.x
      s = ThisComponent.Documentinfo.Keywords ' example
      s = ThisComponent.getDocumentProperties.Keywords(0)
    End If

I've not yet been looking into details to possibly distinct between pré 
and after 4.1.0 for the Date .

In general: Would be nice if for every API change there is something as 
I place above here, to check from e.g. the aivailable interface what to do.

(Sidenote: the change in page formatting, that a page style can have 
different headers/footers on the first page in use, which is very 
positive for MsWord interoperability, may give a challenge too in code 
that manages printing: the page format as such could be used to distinct 
between various trays to print to. But that cannot be done in the same 
way now for documents using that feature ;) )
