I'm following on this, because after the Windows 7 deprecation notice
from yesterday[0], the LibreOfficeFR channel is flooded by questions
wrt. LibreOffice Vanilla provided by CIB.

One user has reported to me 3 issues he has been experiencing:

- LibreOffice Vanilla is only available in English and German, other
languages are absent from the interfaces and from the options. The
Microsoft account he uses is well defined in French (France) and the
Windows he uses is using the same language

- LibreOffice Vanilla is reported as a 32-bit app by the Windows Task
Manager.

- And lastly, even if you said new version are not available yet
(because of holidays), the version I have access to hasn't been updated
since 2019-07-22 according to the Microsoft Store. It's weird it is
displaying "Release date" rather than "Last update date" and the
LibreOffice version is missing from the description, how come? Is this a
restriction from Microsoft?

Also, if you need help in providing a more up to date version, or are
just missing time, feel free to ask us for help :) Always willing to
bring help and experience.
