OpenOffice_org 3.1 rc2 available

May 18th, 2009 by

I’m happy to announce that OpenOffice.org 3.1 rc2 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 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:

I am sorry to say but we need rc3 to fix the bug #503482. The rc3 packages should be available by the end of this week. I hope that they will pass QA and I’ll be able to put the in the the STABLE repository the following week. I am sorry for another delay. We must define the feature freeze earlier the next time.

openSUSE-GNOME BugDay Weekend Wrapup

May 18th, 2009 by

As posted to the openSUSE-GNOME Mailing List.


Thanks to all who showed up to help on the bug day on
Friday, your efforts are greatly appreciated.

We started with just over 70 bugs and left the *obby
session available over the weekend.  By the end of the
weekend, we had reviewed 14 bugs (9 of which we closed).

These were all Critical and Major bugs listed for openSUSE

I will be closing the *obby session this afternoon at about
1700 CDT.

Thanks again!
