Could You be the LibreOffice ‘Bug Hunting Hero’?
Hmmm ... Nice timing.
So, when is the official 2.5 scheduled for release then? At this rate, I may go back to OO.
Excellent. Let us know how you get along.
I'm just not so sure that LibO needs a Chrome-style rapid release cycle.

You maybe interested in [Solved] OOo Crashes when .doc opened since installed IE9. I'm not.

Oh dear ... IE9 does it again. And to think MS want to force this as an update.
It appears Apache will have a new build for OO.
A program that crashes because of IE9 is just incompatible with the current Windows 7, and should be modified accordingly.
About LibreOffice and OO, it is a source of confusion for users and an utterly waste of resources to continue developing these two "projects" in parallel. At least one of the two should be abandoned.
Is that necessarily true? I thought IE (9 or otherwise) could be completely uninstalled from Win 7. There could be a plethora of reasons why people are suffering crashes. It obviously isn't affecting everyone either. I haven't noticed it yet anyway. Although to be fair I don't use OO much, if at all.
It's nice to have the choice. There's nothing wrong with a good fork.
I wonder if ctrl+F (Linux version) will work as it does elsewhere.
Thanks for the head's up.
Seems the 188.8.131.52 portable download is down at the moment? The other download is ok for me though.

LibreOffice 3.5.0 Final (2012-02-14)
"When you visit this page, we try to detect your system, and offer you the right download automatically, but we may not succeed in all cases."
It helps if you have Java enabled when you visit the site.
"For Windows users that have OpenOffice.org installed, we advise uninstalling that beforehand, because it registers the same file type associations."
I recommend this as well.

LibreOffice comes to the Intel AppUp center
Intel AppUp: never heard of it but "The Intel AppUpSM center delivers all the latest PC apps, all in one convenient place. With tons of apps from functional to fun-there's no better place to get more out of your PC than the Intel AppUpSM center.
Every app is scanned by Intel for your protection. And if you don't love your new app you get your money back, guaranteed." LibreOffice is free:
Edit: "and will provide an exciting feature for all Ultrabook users" from http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/02/23/intel_libreoffice_the_document_foundation/
There's more here.
But there are a few things that I don't quite get:
Why do they now refer to "LibreOffice for Windows from SUSE"? Previous versions didn't have this qualifier.
Is this an official "fork" since (Intel) "engineers have worked with the LibreOffice codebase to optimize it for Intel hardware"? If it indeed being optimized for Intel hardware, why restrict their efforts to just Windows?
LibreOffice on track for cloud service next month
OK, I was a huge fan of LibO when it was first released. I have been upgrading it as the releases came out. Today with 3.5.1 I tried to run an Impress presentation. It would not run on any of my computers but would run on a portable Open Office version. I have uninstalled LibO & gone back to Open Office which works perfectly.
As soon as I can remember my LibO forum password I will post about this problem.
For the foreseeable future I am sticking with Open Office.
Nice try LibO ... but no cigar.
Indeed, 3.5 messed up a few things, I have problem with this: http://en.libreofficeforum.org/node/2503
I'm not sure I understood your issue, but if I don't want to copy formulas, I just "paste special" and untick "paste all" and "formulae". This is with 3.4.4. I haven't moved to 3.5.
