OpenOffice_org 3.1.1 final available for openSUSE

September 4th, 2009 by

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

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 have also updated the LanguageTool extension to the version 0.9.9. It includes many fixes and improvements, especially, it should not longer print the many error messages. Unfortunately, the new version works only with JRE-1.6 or higher. It should be fine on most systems. Anyway, if you get an error message from the menu Tools/LanguageTool/About…, you need to set a better JRE in Tools/Options…/OpenOffice.org/Java.

We are already working on the 3.2 release. I would like to put the first alpha build into the OpenOffice:org:UNSTABLE project within next few weeks. The final release is planned for the end of November.

Both comments and pings are currently closed.

    Please consider the use of rpm’s for those of us with slower connections

    sorry should have read “please consider the use of DELTA rpm’s”

      I agree that the delta RPMs might be useful. Unfortunately, this feature is not currently supported by the Build Service. You might vote for it in openFate#307145.

    Wow! (TM) This version is really faster!!!
    I have two questions, though 😉
    Kde file picker?
    I’m using kde 4.3.1. OOo 3.1.0 used the kde 3 file picker, but 3.1.1 don’t use neither the kde 3 nor the kde 4 and I cannot find how to change that. The overall look and feel is more “kde4 like” than the previous version, but I only have the ugly OOo file picker.
    Another question: yast asked me to accept a new signature for the OpenOffice:org:STABLE repo, is this OK?

    • Petr Mladek

      The version 3.1.1 provides KDE4 integration. Unfortunately, it is available only for openSUSE-Factory because it required a newer Qt. It is a bug that it does not fall back to KDE3 integration when the KDE4 plugin is not available. Could you please report it into bugzilla?
      You might force the KDE3 plugin by the environment variable OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP. You might call OOo by:

      OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=kde3 ooffice

      Also you might set it in your system by default. It should be enough to add the following line into $HOME/.bashrc and relogin:

      export OOO_FORCE_DESKTOP=kde3

      Regarding the signature, it is automatically generated by the Build Service framework. I expect that the older signature was out of date. I am going to ask the BS team to confirm this.
      Thanks a lot for feedback.

      I have just got response from the BS team. They removed the top-level and unused OpenOffice.org project. The old signature was lost by mistake and new one was automatically generated. They are trying to restore the old signature from backup. Anyway, the new signature is correct as well. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
