While running NeoOffice on macOS Big Sur, we found that NeoOffice would sometimes freeze for a few seconds when clicking on the menubar or pressing menu shortcut keys.
We found that the freeze occurs when iterating through all of the windows within NeoOffice. Such iterations were very fast in previous versions of macOS but on macOS Big Sur they can sometimes require a significant amount of CPU. To avoid this performance problem, we have modified the NeoOffice code to minimize the use of the macOS Big Sur functions that are prone to freezing.
You do not need to wait until the next NeoOffice release to get the fix. You can get the fix now by downloading and installing the following test patch.
