OpenOffice_org 3.1 final available

June 3rd, 2009 by

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

The openSUSE OOo team hopes that you will be happy with this release. Though, any software contains bugs and we kindly ask you to report them, so that we could fixed them in the future releases.

Other information and plans:

We are already working on the 3.1.1 release. I would like to put the first alpha build into the OpenOffice:org:UNSTABLE project within next two weeks. The final release is planned for the beginning of September.

Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    After upgrading to 3.1, saving writer-files in OOo-format is so slow that I decided to downgrade again. Strange enough, saving in other formats is much faster.

      Strange, I do not any problem here. Just by chance, do you know whether it happened with more documents or with only one? Was it a huge document or a small one? Would be possible to open a bug at https://bugzilla.novell.com against the product OpenOffice.org and attach the problematic file there?

        unfortunately, the problem occurred with all files (also new ones). Searching the internet, I found similar complaints even with earlier versions of OOo (and also under WinXP), but no consistent explanations or solutions. I didn’t check out the relevant bugzilla systems, will do so ASAP.

    Thank you for all the fine work. I work with many ex-Mac people still on PowerPC – hope you can squeeze in a stable up-to-date OOo build for PPC openSUSE 11.1. They tend to eval every Linux by the quality of OpenOffice, which largely depends on the version installed.

    I am using opensuse 11

    Openoffice 3.1 is very slow when openning documents(any format).

      Carlos, thanks for feedback. Could you please provide some more information?

      What version you used before?
      How big is the slowness? For example, was it 1sec before and is it 20sec now, or?
      Does it happen with all types of documents (Writer,Spreadsheet,Impress) or just with Spreadsheet?

      We increased the limit of rows in Calc. It caused performance problems. We fixed many of them before the release but probably not all…
