Description Telesto 2016-11-09 11:25:24 UTC
When I was trying to debug I noticed some (deprecation) warnings. For example:
- 'NSShiftKeyMask' is deprecated: first deprecated in macOS 10.12
- 'NSAnyEventMask' is deprecated: first deprecated in macOS 10.12
-  @"WARNING: nextEventMatchingMask should only be called from the Main Thread! This will throw an exception in the future."

The deprecated API's should be relatively easy to find: "Fortunately, the compiler generates warnings whenever it spots the use of a deprecated API in your code. You can use those warnings to track down and remove all references to those APIs."

Actual Results:  
The use of deprecated API's

Expected Results:
The use of recent API's 

Reproducible: Always

The NextEventMatchingMAsk tries to fire from a thread which is not main, or it tries to re-enter the main thread in this way, and which I am assuming, as Apple indicates in the warning notice, will trigger an exception in future releases of macOS that might not be handled particularly well by LibreOffice. I imagine that it would be advisable to try and avoid this before we are actually faced with the fait accompli.

About deprecated things, perhaps https://cgit.freedesktop.org/libreoffice/core/commit/?id=a6c88e4bf1d148ac462c2bcd7061eff602b627d6 fixed them all?

Also perhaps a proper way should have been to make something similar to:
https://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2016-08/msg00358.html ?

About nextEventMatchingMask, I noticed this patch:
Comment 4 Telesto 2016-11-11 10:15:29 UTC
It seems I'm totally wrong about seeing NSAnyEventMask/NSShiftKeyMask warnings; it weren't warnings but patch comments, sorry.

The WARNING: nextEventMatchingMask should only be called from the Main Thread! seems to be a real warning which isn't fixed by patch, as far I know. I did show in a LLDB backtrace of a recently compiled master (7 nov). See: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/attachment.cgi?id=128576

The warnings are added on purpose (as I understand know). So not that helpful, I suppose -> Closing
