PostPosted: Thu May 06, 2010 12:33 pm    Post subject: NeoOffice 3.1.1 released for Early Access Program members Reply with quote

We are pleased to announce the release of NeoOffice 3.1.1. From now until 11 May 2010, members and subscribers of the current NeoOffice Early Access Program can download the NeoOffice 3.1.1 release from the NeoOffice Early Access Program download page.

Starting on 11 May 2010, all users will be able to download NeoOffice 3.1.1 for free. Based on past releases, download demand is likely to be very high on that day and for several weeks thereafter so we recommend that Early Access Program members download NeoOffice 3.1.1 from the following URL before 11 May 2010 to avoid slow downloads:

http://www.neooffice.org/neojava/earlyaccessdownload.php?fragment=download

NeoOffice 3.1.1 includes all of the code in NeoOffice 3.1.1 Beta plus fixes for several bugs reported by our users after NeoOffice 3.1.1 Beta was released.

Unfortunately, there is no patch available to upgrade NeoOffice 3.1.1 Beta installations to NeoOffice 3.1.1. The bug fixes that we made after NeoOffice 3.1.1 Beta was released are too large to include in a patch. As a result, NeoOffice 3.1.1 Beta users will need to download and install NeoOffice 3.1.1.

Below is a list of the bugs in NeoOffice 3.1.1 Beta that we fixed in NeoOffice 3.1.1:

3557 - Can only cycle through 2 open documents
3596 - Writer frame resize handles remain on screen
3597 - Crash when printing with Java 1.4.2
3598 - Crash when saving
3600 - Missing glyph causes export to PDF to fail
3601 - Services menu items always disabled

Since NeoOffice is tested by the NeoOffice user community, it may still have some undiscovered bugs that may cause NeoOffice to crash. So please read our important warnings for all NeoOffice users before using NeoOffice:

https://www.neooffice.org/neojava/earlyaccessdownload.php?fragment=warnings

We give top priority to answering any problems posted by our most generous donors. If you are a NeoOffice Early Access Program member that has donated US$25 (or €19 or £15 or CA$29 or AU$31) or more within the last year, you can report any problems or ask any questions in our NeoOffice Early Access Program Support forum. Giving priority support is a way for us to thank our most generous NeoOffice donors.

If you have any NeoOffice Mobile questions, please ask your question in the NeoOffice Mobile Support forum.

Patrick, Fran, Ed, and Tim

PostPosted: Mon May 10, 2010 2:05 pm    Post subject: NeoOffice 3.1.1 released Reply with quote

Since it is now 11 May 2010 in most of Asia, we have released NeoOffice 3.1.1 to the general public.

If you are a NeoOffice 3.1.1 Early Access Program member or subscriber and you have been using the NeoOffice 3.1.1 Beta release, we recommend that you download and install NeoOffice 3.1.1 from the NeoOffice download page as the new release contains fixes for several bugs that were found in the NeoOffice 3.1.1 Beta release.

I want to thank all Early Access Program members and subscribers that participated in the NeoOffice 3.1.1 Early Access Program. Without your participation, we would have not been able to find and fix the various OpenOffice.org and Go-oo crashing and other critical bugs for the NeoOffice 3.1.1 release. While there are probably still many bugs to be found and fixed, helping us find critical bugs during the Early Access Program helps eliminate problems for all users.

We are pleased to announce the release of NeoOffice 3.2 Beta. NeoOffice 3.2 Beta is available for all users from the NeoOffice download page.

NeoOffice 3.2 Beta adds new Mac OS X features such as:

- New Mac OS X 10.7 Lion compatible code
- Expanded font support
- Significant reduction in size of PDF files

The NeoOffice project is funded entirely by donations from our users so please consider making a small donation before downloading to help us continue to improve NeoOffice.

If you have any support questions, a list of suggested steps for finding an answer for a problem as fast as possible is available on the NeoOffice Support page. Since over half of our donations come from a small percentage of our users, we provide priority support to our most generous donors in our NeoOffice forums.

If you have any NeoOffice Mobile questions, please ask your question in the NeoOffice Mobile Support forum.

PostPosted: Tue Mar 22, 2011 9:28 am    Post subject: NeoOffice 3.2 Beta Patch 1 released Reply with quote

After we released NeoOffice 3.2 Beta last week, we have been busily testing our code on the most recent Mac OS X 10.7 Lion release available from Apple. While NeoOffice 3.2 Beta installs and runs on Lion, we have made some changes to the NeoOffice code that should make the NeoOffice installation process smoother for new users. In addition, we have fixed 2 hanging bugs reported by our donors.

To ensure that NeoOffice users have the most stable code available, we have released these Lion changes and bug fixes in NeoOffice 3.2 Beta Patch 1. We have also backported these Lion changes and bug fixes in NeoOffice 3.1.2 Patch 6.

NeoOffice 3.2 Beta Patch 1 can be downloaded by all users from the NeoOffice Beta patch download page. NeoOffice 3.1.2 Patch 6 can be downloaded by all users from the NeoOffice patch download page. Both patches include the following Lion changes and bug fixes:

- When NeoOffice is first run on a Mac OS X 10.7 Lion machine that does not have Java installed, the dialog that appears now reads "To open NeoOffice..." instead of "To open java...". Also, after installing the Java system update from this dialog, NeoOffice will automatically relaunch.

- On Mac OS X 10.6 and higher, Apple's Image Capture dialog would cause NeoOffice to hang if that dialog's red close button was pressed. We found a way to disabled the red close button in that dialog to prevent this hanging bug from occurring.

- Dragging the icon in a NeoOffice document's titlebar into the same or another NeoOffice document would cause NeoOffice to hang. This hanging bug has been fixed.

If you have any support questions, a list of suggested steps for finding an answer for a problem as fast as possible is available on the NeoOffice Support page. Since over half of our donations come from a very small percentage of our users, we can only provide support to our most generous donors in our NeoOffice forums.

If you have any NeoOffice Mobile questions, please ask your question in the NeoOffice Mobile Support forum.

To ensure that NeoOffice users have the most stable code available, we have released these Lion changes in NeoOffice 3.2 Beta Patch 2. We have also backported some of these Lion changes in NeoOffice 3.1.2 Patch 7.

NeoOffice 3.2 Beta Patch 2 can be downloaded by all users from the NeoOffice Beta patch download page. NeoOffice 3.1.2 Patch 7 can be downloaded by all users from the NeoOffice patch download page. The patches include the following Lion changes:

- Lion allows resizing windows by dragging on any part of the window's edge and dragging the left edge would sometimes cause the window shape to "snap back" after dragging. Both of these patches eliminate this snapping back behavior.

- On Lion, most windows with titlebars now have a rounded bottom corners but NeoOffice would display such windows with squared corners. NeoOffice 3.2 Beta Patch 2 fixes this by displaying all non-floating windows with titlebars with rounded bottom corners when running NeoOffice on Lion.

If you have any support questions, a list of suggested steps for finding an answer for a problem as fast as possible is available on the NeoOffice Support page. Since over half of our donations come from a very small percentage of our users, we can only provide support to our most generous donors in our NeoOffice forums.

After we released the last NeoOffice 3.2 Beta patch last week, we have been busily testing our code on the most recent Mac OS X 10.7 Lion Developer Preview 2 release available from Apple. While NeoOffice 3.2 Beta installs and runs on Lion, some new bugs did appear in Lion Developer Preview 2. We have fixed those bugs and have released NeoOffice 3.2 Beta Patch 3.

NeoOffice 3.2 Beta Patch 2 can be downloaded by all users from the NeoOffice Beta patch download page. The patches includes fixes for the following bugs:

Bug 3653 - Crash when removing or disabling font in Font Book application
Bug 3654 - Menubar does not update when changing active window on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion
Bug 3655 - Accessing menubar while printing causes hanging
Bug 3656 - Native comboboxes and listboxes do not paint properly on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion
Bug 3657 - Printing large document with many images excessive memory

If you have any support questions, a list of suggested steps for finding an answer for a problem as fast as possible is available on the NeoOffice Support page. Since over half of our donations come from a very small percentage of our users, we can only provide support to our most generous donors in our NeoOffice forums.

PostPosted: Tue Apr 19, 2011 12:33 pm    Post subject: NeoOffice 3.2 Released Reply with quote

SANTA CLARA, CA - 19 April 2011 - NeoOffice.org is pleased to announce the release of NeoOffice 3.2. NeoOffice 3.2 can be downloaded by all NeoOffice donors who have donated US$10 (or €7 or £6 or CA$10 or AU$10 or ¥834) or more within the last year from the NeoOffice download page.

For those who want to download a free version of NeoOffice, no donation is required to download our older NeoOffice 3.1.2 version.

NeoOffice 3.2 adds new Mac OS X features such as:
  • New Mac OS X 10.7 Lion compatible code
  • Expanded font support
  • Significant reduction in size of PDF files
The NeoOffice project is funded entirely by donations from our users. The cost and time spent on NeoOffice is very large for Patrick Luby and Ed Peterlin - the Mac software engineers that have created all of the improvements in NeoOffice that are not in OpenOffice.org or LibreOffice. While many free software products such as OpenOffice.org and LibreOffice are funded by huge donations from large corporations such as Oracle and Novell, NeoOffice has no corporate sponsors. Without any corporate sponsors, Patrick and Ed must rely exclusively on donations from our users to continue implementing the latest Mac OS X features in NeoOffice.

If you have any support questions, a list of suggested steps for finding an answer for a problem as fast as possible is available on the NeoOffice Support page. Since most of our donations come from a small percentage of our users, we provide priority support to our most generous donors in our NeoOffice forums.

If you have any NeoOffice Mobile questions, please ask your question in the NeoOffice Mobile Support forum.

Special thanks also go to the following organizations and people:
  • All NeoOffice donors. The NeoOffice project is funded entirely by the time and money donated by our users. Without the generous donations and volunteer hours made by our users, NeoOffice would not exist.
  • All of the NeoOffice mirror sites. By mirroring NeoOffice, these sites allow us to provide free downloads of an older NeoOffice version by absorbing a large portion of the substantial bandwidth costs associated with the millions of downloads made by NeoOffice users each year.
Like NeoOffice.org, these organizations and people are dedicated to providing open source software as a public service to people throughout the world at minimal cost. Their generosity helps make applications like NeoOffice possible.

About NeoOffice.org

Since 2003, NeoOffice has been the leading open source office software created and supported by Mac software engineers specifically for Mac OS X and is used by over half a million people worldwide. NeoOffice.org is funded NeoOffice entirely by the time and money donated by our users. For more information, visit http://www.neooffice.org/.
