Part of ooo-build since early June, and now on the way to 3.2 for vanilla. Just a few pictures that should tell the story, starting with the state of affairs up to and including OOo 3.1:

The differences are a bit subtle when looked at on this scale, but quite annoying when encountered by someone who designs her presentations with an eye for details. Especially the way sub-shapes were gradient-filled before, like the top end of the can or the eyes of the smiley. Kudos to haui btw. for the very nice hack to make OOo believe a sub-shape actually has the same bounding box as the main shape. Here’s the patch for those interested in the gory details.
