I’m happy to announce that OpenOffice.org 3.0.1 final packages are available in the Build Service OpenOffice:org:STABLE project.
I wish everyone got only positive experience with this new version.
I am sorry for the later announce. We have discovered an update problem on openSUSE-11.1 too late and it took some time until the fixed packages appeared. I am really sorry that it caused troubles to some people.
I would like to put OOo-3.1-alpha1 into the OpenOffice:org:UNSTABLE project within the next two weeks. The first build will be done the older way. The next alpha should be done the openSUSE-11.1 (split-build) way and should finally provide also the extensions even for older products.
Where to Get It
The packages are provided by the OpenOffice:org:STABLE 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. You could install the 32-bit (i586) instead.
