On 8 Oct 2015 I listed the LO-5.0.0 Base import/export filters. Those filters are made use of every time we import from, or export to, a LO-Base (database) file. So, 5 years later, what are the current Base filters?

C:\fakepath\base-6.ods (calc)

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

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

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

Identical to the 1 x LO-5 Base filter:

  • Filter v6.1.5.2
  • media
  • file extension(s)

☑ == New entry
☒ == Removed

1 StarOffice XML (Base)
  • application/vnd.sun.xml.base
  • odb

So. Remarkably boring. No change of any kind; just one (standard) filter.

If this helps then please tick the answer (✔)
