Borders around Graphics and Frames in LibreOffice

Its has been a bit of struggle trying to work this out. I was trying to stop LibreOffice (version 3.4.3)  showing borders around graphics. At first I thought these were real borders (either around the graphic or the frame), but then realised that they are just "view" borders and do not print. Even so, I wanted to get rid of them, but there is not option in the "view" menu.

On the Mac I discovered that in Preferences->LibreOffice->Appearance there is a check on "Object Boundaries", un-checking this does the trick. In Windows this is in Tools->Options->LibreOffice->Appearance

New Logo For Apache Flex

After what seemed like endless deliberations on the Flex Dev Mailing list, the team from Fuse Collective have published the new Apache Flex logo. I think they did a great job personally and many thanks to them for donating their time and efforts.

Check it out on Facebook or Google+.

While I'm on this subject, I would like to use the opportunity to urge other Flex developers to get involved with the Apache Flex and Spoon projects. To be honest, I'm just as upset as many of you are with the way that Adobe has handled anything Flash or Flex recently, but even if you have decided to move to another technology like HTML5, Java etc., things are being discussed and worked on that will interest you too (in terms of migration). We're all in the same boat, and there's no better time to pull together and pool our collective resources and ideas.
