This was the first week for the Second month of GSoC.

Work Done :-
* The patch for adding Paragraph Styles and enabling dropdown menus is
complete and merged now.
* Cleanup patch for variable names and some other minor fixes. (Under
* LO would crash on clicking on any image, this bug was introduced because
Inspector code would assume that there is text at the cursor and extract
the property set of this text. But this is not always true. Added a check
if there is text at the current cursor point. (Under Review)

To do for this week :-
* Add Direct Formatting panel and make it completely functional. (MAJOR)
* When no Character Style is manually added do not show Default Character
* Show all the properties in Inspector, Previously Inspector would not show
properties having their default values. Will have to change that
* The current property for any colour is shown in the respective Hex value
like 0x33fef. Replace this with a colour box.

A list of Bugzilla Tickets have been filled [1] (thanks to Heiko ). It
would be great if more people could test the features and help us improve
