Dan, does that data-loss happen when you use MySql? I thought it only
happened with the embedded HsqlDb?

As far as Base is concerned, I have not been having any
problems with 3.4.6, 3.5.6, nor 3.6.2. (I just installed 22.214.171.124
which is a release candidate. For my personal databases I use the
most, I use MySQL as the backend with any of these LO Base
versions as the front end. I work with Base 126.96.36.199 for my
writing. This database is embedded and contains only sample data
(no important data contained in it). As far as JRE, I use 1.6.0_24
(openjdk). LO seems to prefer this.
I also use AOO 3.4.1 at times. It seems to prefer the Openjdk
The main problem with Base is the potential for data loss when
the program is not shutdown properly. This can be avoided by
extracting the data from the database file and then use Base to
connect to the data. (The data files are extracted to a separate
folder.) Unfortunately, it does not improve the speed of Base.

features are mostly in the 3.6.x or being lined-up for the 3.7.0.
The 3.5.7 is likely to just have fixes for any lingering problems
in the 3.5.6. Most of those fixes will be being merging into the
3.6.3 and .4. At least that's how i imagine it works. Certainly
once that 3rd digit reaches .4 the branch seems a lot more stable.
