LibreOffice QA testing builds

Do you want to do some QA with LibreOffice? I did some work and uploaded some testing builds at Sourceforge.

For testing you need: 64-Bit Linux, supporting deb-files (like Ubuntu): The right download is linked here: LINK TO UBUNTU LTS 64-BIT.

I hope you like it and submit loads of bugs!!

Yours!

LibreOffiice is doing a great job !

At Italo’s blog  I heard a complain: Why has LibreOffice so much more contributors, but still “new” features are lacking. New features are important, you can’t change everything now. Have a look at this PDF file ( also by Italo). An online version is planned, one for Android and one for iOS, with LibreOffice a variety of feature tweaks were announced ( One of them is a little bit tricky). So why,, why YOU should blame LibreOffice. Learn C++ and go ahead. Make a new UI, get criticised by some people, some other might give you a helping hand, but radical changes have a bad side too:

  • You have a lot of work programming a new UI
  • Your work might never be accepted, very often you have to do a lot of changes…
  • Even if I repeat myself: You really have to be able to take criticism.

So LibreOffice does, all in all, good work. I exclusively prepared an Updated Version of the (rather unpopular) NO Comments diagram:

Compared to the number of releases, LibreOffice, or the Team around LibreOffice does a very great job. BTW: Today ( and I have included this) LibreOffice 3.5.1 has been announced. THAT is what WE wanted: We, all of us, are doing a very great job and if you do not think like this there are a few ways possible:

2 points of view

Well, there are always two points, never one. For one company, the first is better, for the other the second. Yesterday I was writing about a problem of open source office suites nowadays (LINK). Here I made it visual in a different way:

On the top I the x-axis is the time, on the bottom the x-axis is “Innovation”. I won’t write more, because this picture is worth more than thousand words!
