PostPosted: Thu Oct 06, 2022 5:22 am    Post subject: NeoOffice 2022.2 released

You can download NeoOffice 2022.2 for free from either of the following sites:Mac App Store users: some features are not available in the Mac App Store version in order to comply with Apple's Mac App Store security requirements.

This version of NeoOffice adds the following new features:
  • VoiceOver support: We have finally succeeded in making the LibreOffice accessibility code work within NeoOffice's multithreaded architecture. With this change, NeoOffice now has support for VoiceOver and possibly other macOS accessibility features. Also, we have upgraded the LibreOffice accessibility code to use Apple's newer, more efficient NSAccessibilityElement class to significantly reduce memory usage.
  • Native popup menus: NeoOffice's underlying LibreOffice code does not support accessibility in its non-native popup menus so we have replaced most non-native popup menus with native menus.
Also, this version of NeoOffice fixes the following bugs:
  • Fixed LibreOffice bug 145563 by adding separate fonts for each font's localized and unlocalized family and font names. This increases the likelihood of matching the family name in documents saved by OpenOffice and LibreOffice to an actual font.
  • Fixed LibreOffice bug 150873 by adding code that resolves any macOS aliases in a file path before a file path is opened by NeoOffice's underlying LibreOffice code.
  • Fixed a crash when quitting while NeoOffice is reloading a document by delaying document reloading when NeoOffice's quit handler code is running.

Soon after we announced the release of NeoOffice 2022.2, a user reported that Command-clicking on a hyperlink in a document would display a "fatal error" dialog and then crash if the hyperlink does not point to a local file.

We have fixed this bug and we will release a new version of NeoOffice in the next few days. In the meantime, you can get the fix now by downloading and installing one of the following test patches:

PostPosted: Mon Nov 07, 2022 11:14 am    Post subject: NeoOffice 2022.4 users: fix for new crashing bugs

Almost immediately after we released NeoOffice 2022.4, several completely new crashing bugs were reported. While our fixes in 2022.4 for detecting C++ pointers that LibreOffice has already deleted, our fixes only delayed crashing long enough for NeoOffice to crash in an entirely new set of code locations.

To fix these new bugs, we have removed VoiceOver support. We have submitted NeoOffice 2022.5 with this fix. While we wait for Apple to review 2022.5, you can get the fix now by downloading one of the following patches installers:

NeoOffice 2022.4 Mac App Store:
https://github.com/neooffice/NeoOffice/releases/download/NeoOffice-2022_5/NeoOffice-2022.5-Patch-0-Universal.dmg

NeoOffice 2022.4 Professional Edition:

Note: if you installed one of the patches that we posted yesterday, you already have the same code as NeoOffice 2022.5 and you do not need to reinstall NeoOffice.

PostPosted: Fri Nov 25, 2022 8:32 am    Post subject: New website for news and announcements

For many years, we have posted news and announcements on our Developer notes and announcements website. Unfortunately, that website runs on very old software that has required significant changes every time a new version of PHP is released. So, we are archiving that website and all future news and announcements will be posted on our new NeoOffice News website.

An archive of the old website will remain online and you can continue to view our previous news and announcements using the following links:We will also continue to post links to our posts on Twitter @NeoOffice.
