From now on you need the newest updater JAR. I hate that this happened… Updater download
Bottom line: The main application is no longer a ZIP, which needs to be extracted. From now one it is a JAR file, which can be started by a double click…. Therefore the updater procedure had to be changed.
I am sorry for this change, but I am quite sure that should not happen too often ( I do not want to say “should not happen again”, but I would not know a reason to change that again…)
I am neither dead not did I abandon LibreOffice :). I simply lacking time. Anyway SI-GUI just got SI-GUI. So “LibreOffice Server Install GUI” (which I guess was against 3rd party tools branding guideline) got “Separate Install GUI” (Thanks for the name BTW 😉 ). It has the same bugs (and maybe due to the name change a bit more).
I admit I try to monetize SI GUI a bit, in the sidebar of my blog you can find links to my Amazon wish list or a direct link to gift cards. On the download page as well as on the sidebar there is a “paypal donate” button. Feel free to use them (Paypal has a quite high fee). This software will ever be free and I will continue to support it in the future, no matter if you use them or not.
Thanks for not closing the page up to now, here is one last thing. Close before Christmas I collected the stats for SI-GUI again: LINK
This blog post and the changes @ SI-GUI have been planned to go live before Christmas, but thanks to university I did not find time.
PLEASE SPREAD THE WORLD ABOUT THIS
I managed to get the update working, but it installs as a “new” program. So please manually uninstall
- “Seperate Install GUI” (Spelling error – Sorry)
- “Server Install GUI” (After updating to “Separate Install GUI”)
- And any version which has a ([NUMBER]) in it (like “Server Install GUI (2)”)
It does not harm, if you keep using this, but they won’t get updated. So “Separate Install GUI” (as seen in the following screenshot) is the “future” version of SI-GUI
I am looking forward to see your comments. I will publlish the changes to git after publishing this post 🙂
