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]
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.
I do not know why you downloaded 188.8.131.52 so often, but as of today alpha 1 of our next release is one of the most downloaded versions since we make the statistic
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.
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
It’s time to announce the latest release. Due to one major change you will lose all your settings (The settings file will be stored in a different place). With this version we start to collect data about the usage of the program. This is opt-in, so no need to worry. @All: Thanks for your help translating, which is very important for the usability.
Today was a really productive day, so that I want to share English screenshot of the latest version. (I made a gallery, so that you are able to compare it with the old UI and a side by side screenshot is right after the break :) Any suggestions?
Hi and thank you for all the positive feedback :) I continued developing the new UI and, because of your feedback, the “Download any LibreOffice version” option will not be hidden in the download menu, but get a place in the main UI. ( I am currently working on that functionality :) ) Anyway, here is a gallery, which shows 3 pics this time.
The first is the ancient one from current stable release, the second is the first draft and now follows the second draft :) Any opinions? [Sorry, text on screenshots is in German...]
I am really active over the last few weeks and I am really proud of all the feedback I got in the vote for features. So, before I am able to implement new exciting features, I have to do some work in the background. One part is dev-like (For those, who are interested: Make the download part reuseable….) and, because of the lack of space for new buttons a “new” UI. I really appreciate early feedback, so please compare the two pictures and tell me your opinion. One note, right now, then the pictures ;) . The only thing which drops down is “Download”. You will understand, if you have a look at the pictures….
Latest version currently available
My local testing build
PS: I am sorry for the German UI, of course other languages are available. Currently translations to English, German, French, Spanish, Slovenian, Danish, Portuguese, Hebrew and Dutch are available. Your language missing? Comment, if you are willing to translate :)
Linz (Austria) – Reisisoft releases LibreOffice Server Install GUI 3.0
LibreOffice Server Install GUI v3.0 is an exciting release. It has a whole set of new features, some of them have been inspired by Harald Köster, who presented a list of 15! Items; HK means “inspired by Harald Köster”. So, let’s skip the quotations of people who made this possible and just list them up.
Da – Leif Lodahl
Es – Adolfo Jayme Barrientos
Fr – Sophie Gautier
He – Yaron Shahrabani
Pt – Carlos Moreira
Sl – Martin Srebotnjak
Without the work of you the software would not be that great ;)
So, now I am going to reveal the new features. If something is not working as excepted, feel free to mail me, leave a comment or (preferred) submitting a bug on GitHub:
With this version, downloading the latest master is possible again (There has been a change in the link on the LibreOffice side)
Added a header to the built-in downloader. Hopefully I am going to get some statistics from the LibreOffice side….
Version of the GUI can be determined now ( HK#4 )
Hopefully it is now clear, what “Should a subfolder be created automatically” should mean… (HK#8)
Shortcuts pointing to the soffice.exe of the last parallel installation can be created ( HK#10)
Manager added ( HK #15 )
Parallel installations can be deleted with the manager ( HK#13)
I really hope that this program will help you to enjoy testing the 4.1 master and the 4.0 beta1 of LibreOffice.
