OpenOffice_org 3.1 beta6 available

April 28th, 2009 by

I’m happy to announce that OpenOffice.org 3.1 beta6 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.

The packages are beta versions and might 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.

This build includes an alpha version of OpenXML export filters (DOCX, XLSX, PPTX). We also added many fixes to the OpenXML import filters. They should be able to import and export simple documents now.  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 beta7 or rc1 build the following week. The openSUSE final release might be delayed one or two weeks after the upstream because of the extra changes. The current upstream release date is May 7, 2009.
