OpenOffice_org 3.1.1 alpha2 available for openSUSE

July 2nd, 2009 by

I’m happy to announce OpenOffice.org 3.1.1 alpha2 packages for openSUSE. They are available in the Build Service OpenOffice:org:UNSTABLE project and include many upstream and Go-oo fixes. Please, look for more details about the openSUSE OOo build on the wiki page.

The packages are alpha 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.

Other information and plans:

The next build will be 3.1.1-beta1 and should be available 3-4 weeks from now. The final OOo-3.1.1 packages should be available at the beginning of September.

I have vacation the following two weeks and will not have access to the internet. I hope that the current alpha2 build is usable. If not, please report bugs and switch back to the stable build.

Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    Is there no where to get fresher builds in the mean time ? For instance things like http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=101451 have basically killed .doc tables in Writer and don’t seem to be fixed in this build.

      I am going to prepare OOo-3.1.1-beta1 build this week. It should be available in the beginning of the following week. It should include the fix for the issue #101451.
