As these formats are quite commonly used nowadays we should add icons for them as well.
Core has them under sysext/cms/tslib/media/fileicons

.odt (text)
.ods (spreadsheet)
.odp (presentation)
.odg (drawing)
.odf (database)

I'll contact Ben/Emile who created them originally.

Would be good to backport to 4.5 (and maybe 4.4?) as well.

Hey Stefan, I put it on the agenda of the next design team meeting. Emile did them way back then and I don't work for Netcreators anymore. Great idea btw.

Please note that 3 different sets of icons exist:

Type 1: Is in multiple locations (mostly for historic reason; widely used)
This is the one that has the three letters (fileext) on it.

Type 2: ./typo3/sysext/indexed_search/pi/res/pdf.gif
Type 3: ./typo3/sysext/t3skin/images/icons/mimetypes/pdf.png
(Those two are the PDF-icon "everybody knows", no fileextension in the graphics.)

Implementing "something new" would imho not be an option, since we should update 4.5 as well and should force a complete new iconset on them maybe. It would be great to create icons for the "Type 1"-iconset mentioned above, maybe by copying together letters or so (if the original font is unknown).

as this issue is very old. Does the problem still exists within newer versions of TYPO3 CMS (6.2.4)?

Still an issue in master (pre-6.3). For example in filelist icons from t3skin are now used. The skin contains icons for files like .doc (.t3-icon-word) but no icon for .odt (or other OpenDocument-formats).

Couldn't the icons just be created and added to the typo3/gfx/fileicons?

Won't have this for releases lower than 7 LTS.
IconRegistry knows about sxw (old OpenOffice-format) but not then opendocument-formats yet. And the icon for swx currently is mimetype-word. So we might need some additions there.

There is an action-icon for openoffice already, but no mimetype-icon yet.
