     Personal opinion: LibO version 3.5.7 for Base.
What do you know about how Base works? What is your background in the topic of relational databases? Each database program has its own method of creating and working with its databases. What are you going to use as a resource for learning to use Base? Knowing which version is the most reliable and stable is very important. Perhaps knowing where to find the resources to use makes the program much more useful.

Best all you LibO experts and Devs!
What Webmaster now says is a good example on all the basic level issues that must be completely eliminated from LibO.

Some posts ago I asked what version of LibO at this moment is to be considered as the most reliable and most stable. And got the answer that LibO3.5.7 is the one for newcomers perhaps followed by LibO3.6.2.
(But nothing said about Base, that is my main concern and asked for)

For all of you that know LibO's build-up, its features and work-arounds and alternative solutions these issues may seem simple. But for users like me they are serious - I do not even know where to start looking for a solution if I meet such a problem. It is really a matter of using LibO or not -- and I do not want to have different programs/suites for different types of need. My main interest is to get the job done and because of limits in time or costs I cannot accept delays caused by the tool I use.
Obviously I have to continue - even if I don't want to - to buy MSO.

A lack of resources is not a valid excuse as long as you can continue developing new bugs and issues - plus them 1000-2000 already waiting for fixing. I know very well that it is never fun to afterwards repair mistakes - so better not to make them.

Waiting for the results of your wise decisions - especially regarding Windows with some 90% of the users.

The freezing and word count issues - was that on 3.5.6, 3.5.7, or some other version.

I have noticed that 3.5.7 freezes sometimes on loading/opening with Ubuntu 64-bit 12.04 and MATE desktop. I never saw this with 3.5.6 and Ubuntu 10.04 and GNOME desktop. Since I upgraded to 12.04 on Oct. 8th and 3.5.7 when it came out on the 18th, I did not have "much" time with 12.04 and 3.5.6 to tell if there was any issues.

The freezing happened several times. Once with clicking on the panel launcher and twice with the right-clicking and "open with" option. The only way to get the LO splash/opening to "unfreeze" is to reboot. Actually when Ubuntu reboots, LO opens up properly. I have the system set to open any packages with "windows" open when I log off or shut-down/re-boot.

So I do get the freezing splash screen once and a while for 3.5.7.

Is this an issue with other users of 3.5.7?

It would be interesting to learn what version was used, which bugs were observed and if they were
all reported an when.

Hi guys

I was wondering what would perhaps be the best release of LO to
recommend to a small charitable organisation.

I had a problem with the latest release as it was quite buggy and the church & athletics club I installed it for was not to happy when they
found the bugs interrupted their workflow,

So what is the most stable release?
