OpenOffice_org 3.1 rc5 available

May 25th, 2009 by

I’m happy to announce OpenOffice.org 3.1 rc5 packages. They are available in the Build Service OpenOffice:org:UNSTABLE project and include many upstream and Go-oo fixes. Please, look for more details about the openSUSE OOo build on the wiki page.

The packages are release candidates but they might still include even serious bugs. Therefore they are not intended for data-critical usage. A good practice is to archive any important data before an use, …

We kindly ask any interested beta testers to try the package and report bugs.

Other information and plans:

Last week was hectic. We did 3 more release candidates and I think that we are really close now. We need two more days to finish QA of the last build. I believe that it will be the last one and I will be able to put the packages into the STABLE repository. It expect that the packages might appear there by the end of this week. I do not promise it but…

I have good news for Russian speaking people.  One external contributor, with the nick EGD, send me a Russian templates gallery. You might try the package OpenOffice_org-templates-ru in the OpenOffice:org:UNSTABLE project. I’ll put them into the STABLE repository after some clean up.

Both comments and pings are currently closed.

      I am not able to reproduce it here. I think that it a problem with one particular mirror.
      I have just published rc6. I hope that it will be mirrored correctly,

      In each case, the file is not important for the base function. It will just
      not complete the file names on the command line (in a terminal, shell).
