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 220.127.116.11 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 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
In yesterdays program of the Austrian channel ORF 2 (German) there was some advertisement of Linux (especially Ubuntu), which is ought to be better than Windows as well as LibreOffice being (for most people) as good as Word, maybe even better)
We had this before, but still I had ideas how to simplify things more, and that’s why I did minor changes to the UI (okay… Changed size of the main form + added one button + changed size of 2 areas (Shortcut and bootstrap.ini)
As always I am interested in your opinion and feedback :D
Here are the screenshots:
Edit Bootstrap.ini UI
So and now some other news I am really happy about:
The rework of the help seems to be finished soon (Thanks to Ken Biondi)
I am at the LibO conference in Milan :D
As I am too late to send in my proposal I really hope to get a “lightning talk” slot –> Talk about SI-GUI
Today is the time to announce the biggest tutorial I have made for LibreOffice yet.
Up to today It has never been so easy to get the daily-bisect repo with LATEST and OLDEST tags. So why do not check it out now! Do you not have Linux? You may try to create a virtual machine running Ubuntu. (Tested with 13.10) Should be working with other 64-Bit Linux as well.
