And where is your bug report? Anyway, there is no justification for you
having used the wording that you used ('How on earth did this "release"
get out (Fedora/OpenOffice ??) ?? This is just one of many basic issues
I and others have had with Fedora recently.'), because:
1. Fontwork objects are 3-D objects, therefore the performance depends
on graphic driver, card and so on. I just checked it and it works
reasonably well on my machine (6-slide presentation with a fontwork
on each slide was loaded in 10 seconds and transition between slides
took a second at worst). That means there are users for whom it
works without problems.
2. This upstream bug: http://www.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=58291
says someone had similar performance problems with fontwork in OO.o 2.0.
That means it's nothing new in 3.1 (and I personally doubt there
was much change in this area between 2.3 and 3.1).
3. Fontwork is just a very small piece of OO.o. Even if it had as poor
performance as you describe on _every_ system, it would hardly be a
blocker for release of OO.o and it's absolutely unimaginable it would be
a blocker for release of Fedora. That means it can hardly be described
as basic issue.
