While testing the latest test patches on Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, I found that when opening a document in the File :: Recent Documents menu, the menubar would sometimes be empty. Clicking on another window or application and then clicking back on the newly opened document would fix the problem, so this was definitely a bug in the NeoOffice's menubar setting code.

I think that I have fixed this bug. It was due to a bug in my fix for this bug. For that bug, our code would put menubar changes in a queue during certain cases where it is unsafe to update the menubar. This bug was caused by our code's failure to clear the queue in certain cases. As a result, older menubar changes would be resurrected and processed a second time.

Can anyone install the following test patches and tell us if they see any unexpected changes in menubar behavior?:

FYI. The fix for this bug is in NeoOffice 2013 Beta 2. To download NeoOffice 2013 Beta 2, use the download link in this NeoWiki article.

Please note that the NeoOffice 2013 Beta 2 installer should find and update your existing NeoOffice 2013 Beta installation. If you don't have NeoOffice 2013 Beta already installed, it will install in /Applications/NeoOffice.app and overwrite any regular NeoOffice installation there if you have not renamed it. So, if you have NeoOffice 3.3 installed, we recommend that you rename it before installing NeoOffice 2013 Beta 2.

NeoOffice Secure Edition testers: NeoOffice 2013 Beta 2 is incompatible with NeoOffice Secure Edition so if you have one of the NeoOffice Secure Edition versions installed, we recommend that you delete your NeoOffice Secure Edition user preference files by executing the following command in a Terminal window before installing NeoOffice 2013 Beta 2:

Quote:
rm -Rf ~/Library/Containers/org.neooffice.NeoOfficeSecureEdition/Data/Library/Preferences/NeoOfficeSecureEdition


Edit by pluby: added special steps for NeoOffice Secure Edition testers.

FYI. I have included the fix for this bug in NeoOffice 3.3 Patch 8. The patch can be downloaded from the NeoOffice patch download page.
