SI-GUI and BiBi-GUI updates


It has been quite a long time since my last blog post. I am afraid this post could be just a little bit too long. That’s why I want to start off with a summary: I created a small tool called LibO Tankstelle [LibreOffice gas station], which has been used at Cebit, updated SI-GUI and BiBi-GUI. And I need YOU: You can help me test and improve Bibi-GUI. @Offtopic: I made a small game FYI

Long version after the break:

LibreOffice Server Install GUI – New UI – Follow up

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...]

Sorry for no updates

Hi everyone,

It has been a reasonably long time since my last post, but there are a lot of things going on.

Beside of a Windows only game I am working for, LibreOffice Server Install GUI got continuous improvements. Currently the source of LibreOffice Server Install GUI is hosted at both, GitHub and LibreOffice repositories. It is planned not to host the binaries at the freehoster they are hosted currently in the near future. I really hope, that there are no access problems then.

BTW: During the next few months I am going to publish a so called “Fachbereichsarbeit” (pre-scientific paper) about OpenSource. I hope you like this paper, although it is written in German…

Something different now:

Does anyone of you know a service for a telephone conference for free and as open as possible? I only know the following ones:

  • Google Hangouts
  • Skype
  • Teamspeak
  • Jitsi
  • http://conversat.io/ + https://next.andbang.com/ later on??
  • Mumble
