Libreoffice 3.6.5
« Reply #15 on: February 08, 2013, 04:26:51 AM »
hi jason,

now libreoffice released version 4.0 and started new concepts that are quite different to the openoffice-approach.
for that reason i think that version 3.6.x stays for a certain time the stable platform for most serious users.
i would be happy to find the latest 3.x version in the rep, perhaps the latest actual 3.6.5 :)
in my opinion i don't need the cutting edge for me or in the rep,
but i appreciate a common, most stable and bugfree version.
thank you for your great help for the community in the past,
perhaps you find some time to contribute this packaging in the future.

What is wrong with 4.0? If you do not need it is your personal view. Do not talk on behalf others about repo :-*

hi jason,

just in case you will find some time...  ;)
some platforms like debian will probably stay on the 3.x-branch for a while, too.

That's not an accurate statement, debian offers 4.0.1~rc1-1 for experimental and 3.5.4+dfsg-4 for sid.

Big distroes are just slow and conservative. If something is not in their repo in one week it doesn't mean there is anything wrong.

netnomad -   I do plan to update this one, but it will be when I have a large chunk of time and everything else is caught up, TC wise and other.  I have 4.x scripted to install with one command, and will do that with any updates to 3.x as well as future versions, but that first making is real bear.  I will get to it, just can't say when.

Hi netnomad,
Time is very tight right now and I am focused on another area for the time being.  Of course, anyone is free to create the extension.

Here is the one for 4.0, would need some modification I am sure but gives a general idea what is going on.
