On 15 Oct 2015 I listed the LO-5.0.0 Writer import/export filters. Those filters are made use of every time we import from, or export to, a non-LO-writer file. So, 5 years later, what are the current Writer filters?

C:\fakepath\writer-6.ods
C:\fakepath\writer-6.odt
C:\fakepath\writer-6.txt.odt (change to .txt (TXT files not allowed on upload))

LO-6.4 file-conversion filters
(many thanks to Mike Kaganski for the last link; he says the filters began to be documented at v6.3)

~$ lsb_release -a Devuan GNU/Linux 3 (beowulf)
~$ soffice.bin --version LibreOffice 6.1.5.2 10(Build:2)

Hand-extracted from /usr/lib/libreoffice/share/registry/writer.xcd

These are mostly the same as the 69 Writer filters in LO-5; some are renamed & although there are many extra filters, even more have been removed.
