               maybe now more will realize what we're saying ;-)

This is simply unrealistic. For anyone who has any experience with programming this would be known. No offense but with a ratio of 100,000:1 or more users to developers, the idea that we would just squash all bugs and stop releasing new versions isn't realistic at all and thus why developers wouldn't respond to this recommendation. If you want to help I suggest taking some C++ classes and getting involved with the code. Most of us are volunteers who do this with our spare time, I hope you all keep that in mind

Another problem for all programs in wide release is wide hardware variability in the Windows and Linux worlds especially when compared to Macs. There could be a very odd hardware/driver interaction that was never discovered in alpha, beta, or release candidate previews with specific hardware combinations.

BRAVO Anne-Ology!!
Exactly that message - only in other words -- I have repeatedly tried to
tell to the LibO-experts (devs) since January:
they must take a brake in developing and take a certain version (e.g.
3.4.xx) and make every module of the suite - Base included - absolutely
free of bugs and inconsistencies both in programming and the instructions
and especially the LibO-Help.
Every feature shall have a clear explanation and a detailed guiding how-to
in the LibO-Help -- easily understood by any average non-expert user.

Obviously I've been crying in vain because I have not noticed any
(re)actions -- the developing of new versions is continuing with the result
of an increasing activity on this list.

I have LibO3.4.6 installed (Win7) but avoid using it (Calc, Base) because
I have better to do than struggle with problems.
I would like to know which LibO version for the time being can be
considered as the most reliable and productive -- especially regarding Base. It would also be interesting to see an (valid) evaluation of that reliable usability on a scale 1-10 for each of the the different modules of versions
3.4.xx, 3.5.xx.x, 3.6.xx.x

This is the reason I have no intention of updating from 3.4 until
ALL these bugs are worked out -
then I'll update to 3.5; yes, I'll always be behind BUT I
have the hassles of these bugs  ;-)

I've been using v3.4 of LibreOffice. I updated to v3.6.2.2 and now the

contents of documents are not indexed for search.

I'm using 64-bit Windows 7. The extension odt is checked for the indexing option. I also checked the "Index Properties and File Contents" in the
Indexing Option in Windows.

When I search, doc files and ppt files appears in the result but not odt

Is it just me or is this known bug? The same thing happened when I
to v3.5 so I went back to v3.4 for the searchability. Is there any
