In the recent OpenOffice.org 3.1 release, Sun Microsystems' OpenOffice.org engineers made some speed improvements in Calc when working with large spreadsheets.

Since it will likely be several months before NeoOffice upgrades to the OpenOffice.org 3.1 code, I spent a few days merging the following two OpenOffice.org 3.1 Calc speed improvements into NeoOffice 3.0:

- Sorting Values within Spreadsheet Functions
- String Handling in Formula Compiler

You can test these speed improvements by installing the following test patch. If I merged the OpenOffice.org 3.1 code properly, changes to large spreadsheets in NeoOffice 3.0 should recalculate roughly as fast as in OpenOffice.org 3.1:

Intel:

PowerPC:
http://joe.neooffice.org/test/NeoOffice-3.0-Patch-2-Test-6-PowerPC.dmg

If you still see significantly slower recalculation speed in NeoOffice 3.0 verus OpenOffice.org 3.1 after installing the test patch, please let us know and, if possible, attach a sample spreadsheet file that we can look at.

Has anyone tried the test patch yet? Before I release the official patch next week with this changes, I would really like to have some to have someone verify that the OpenOffice.org 3.1 code that I backported actually does increase performance.

I have been using it quite happily for about a week. I have 5 worksheets, saved as one file, as separate grade books for my students and it has not seemed slow or buggy at all.

Compared to Oo.org 3.1 on my Dell laptop it seems just as fast(probably faster to to a newer processor and more ram in the mac)

macbook 2.1 4gb RAM 10.5.6

What do we have in terms of heavy sample spreadsheets? My spreadsheets are 2-3 pages at most, with few calculations…
