OK, this is a "preemptive strike" that will hopefully answer questions for folks who will be downloading and installing Kevin's 1.1.1RC3 Technology Preview. This installer bootstraps off of the X11 based installer instead of trying to replace it. Its primary goal is to get the binary out as quickly as possible, so it's got some limitations:
-- All required components must be installed beforehand (Ghostscript, X11, and friends). If you've installed OOo 1.0.3 GM, you have all of the required components.
-- English only.
-- Build is Panther, Mac OS 10.3 compatible only.
-- Functions with Apple X11 only.
-- Cannot be installed in any other directory besies /Applications/OpenOffice.org1.1.1
-- Does not perform font conversion with "fondu".
-- Build does not contain Start OOo, rather other launcher scripts.
It does contain the latest binaries, however, so if you're doing 1.1.1 specific testing and have a compatible setup, you should probably grab it to get on the latest code. The 1.1.1 RC3 code matches the 1.1.1 release from yesterday on the other top-tier platforms.
