SI-GUI stats

Hi,

So right after the bug-hunting session (ok, I am a bit late ;) ) I pulled the statistics today, and I want to share with you 3 things :) [Statistic is available here]

It was global

Well, as far as I can tell from the SI-GUIstats it was a global success – with France as top nation, congrats Sophie and all the french QA team.

Downloadstats
4.3 a1 is #2

I do not know why you downloaded 4.1.5.3 so often,  but as of today alpha 1 of our next release is one of the most downloaded versions since we make the statistic

Good testers!

So, what do tester test? It’s great to see so many of you testing master and the test builds. This helps us to bring out a good “Fresh” branch (lb => latest branch). It is great to see you on the “Stable” branch as well (“ob” => Older branch) to catch anything there as well.

Pie cake where you can see all versions downloaded
Yes, we do release some versions ;)

Thanks for testing so many versions and helppacks :). You know, we always tell QA is not difficult so if you are on Windows, feel free to use SI-GUI, and please share your stats. It’s nice to see your product is used :D

Test LibreOffice version 4 with Windows

Hi!

I really want to give everyone one big chance, you just have to accept, that it is not perfect now, but you can help to improve the 4.0 release of LibreOffice…

So there are some ways:

1) You 100% know how you want to install a testing build properly

I will give you the links for alpha1+ and (just to be sure) a link to bugzilla, with me automatically added to CC…

2) You are not sure 100%  how you want to install a testing build properly or configure it.

I am going to show it using my program, but it basically is this tutorial.

  • Download my program
  • Press Download latest master
  • Meanwhile:
    • Configure the installation directory
    • If you want to have a subfolder created automatically, check the check box. A name has been created automatically, but you can change it
  • Click: Start installation
  • After installation seems to be completed and you don’t want to have your profile used (and maybe damaged), click open bootstrap.ini and follow the instruction shown in the tool-tip  when hovering over the large texfield. (Don’t worry, you just have to copy one thing – so don’t worry)
  • Open the folder you installed LibreOffice to and open the folder “program”. Double click soffice.exe and you are done.

Your LibreOffice 4 build has been installed parallel to your normal LibreOffice installation with a separate profile.

You can submit bugs in two ways:

However, if you have a question, don’t hesitate and ask me :)
