I’m happy to announce that OpenOffice.org 3.1 beta5 packages are available in the Build Service OpenOffice:org:UNSTABLE project. They include many upstream and Go-oo fixes. Please, look for more details about the openSUSE OOo build on the wiki page.

We kindly ask any interested beta testers to try the package and report bugs. See also the known blocker bugs below.
This build finally includes the alpha version of OpenXML export filters (DOCX, XLSX, PPTX). There are still many serious bugs, e.g. bnc#496431, bnc#492896. We also added many fixes to the OpenXML import filters. These changes affected also the import and export filters of the old binary file formats (DOC, XLS, PPT). So we kindly ask anyone to try this functionality and report bugs especially in the import and export of the old binary file formats.

Other information and plans:
I would like to provide beta5 or rc1 build the following week. I expect the final release in the first half of May. We will be slightly delayed after the upstream release.
