OpenOffice_org 3.1.1 beta3 available for openSUSE

August 21st, 2009 by

I’m happy to announce OpenOffice.org 3.1.1 beta3 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 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, …

As usual, we kindly ask any interested beta testers to try the package and report bugs.

Other information and plans:

The build is based on the upstream 3.1.1-rc1 release. I have marked it beta3 because upstream had found another blocker bugs in the meantime. Note that our builds are delayed after the upstream by few days by definition.

I have also fixed the OpenOffice_org-LanguageTool package to do not print the ugly messages. I do not understand why I did not see them when I tested the 0.9.9 update. I am sorry for the inconvenience.

The next build will be available about August 27, it should be 3.1.1-rc1 and I hope that it will be the final build.
