I’m happy to announce that OpenOffice.org 188.8.131.52.4 rc4 packages are available in the Build Service OpenOffice:org:UNSTABLE project.
We hope that this is the last release candidate and that we will provide the final package in the OpenOffice:org:STABLE project the following week.
Even though, we are very close the final release, the package still might include even serious bugs. Therefore it is 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.
Note: openSUSE-11.1-beta2 and FACTORY include totaly reworked packages where the build is split into many source packages. It is a bit broken right now. We would like to put it into the Build Service as soon as possible but it will take some time to fix the build on older distributions again. Please be patient.
Where to Get It
The packages are provided by the OpenOffice:org:UNSTABLE installation repository.
There are some problems with the version update on older distributions. You might need to select the right version by hand.
The packages with localizations are renamed from OpenOffice_org-<lang> to OpenOffice_org-l10n-<lang>. Also the localized help content is split into the optional OpenOffice_org-help-<lang> packages. Finally, the American localization is split into extra packages OpenOffice_org-l10n-en-US and OpenOffice_org-help-en-US.
We are sorry, the 64-bit packages are not available for SLED10 and openSUSE-10.2. You could install the 32-bit (i586) instead. We hope to solve the build problems within the following weeks.
