Hi :)  
The beta-testing version of 4.1.0 is out! :)

However, apparently Ubuntu users using their PPAs are going to have problems test-driving it at 
this stage.  I am not sure what happens if you install the "upstream" version 
directly from the LibreOffice website rather than the Ubuntu-ised version from the Ppa. 

So, if you use Ubuntu and want to sign-up for the triage competition it might be a good idea to 
set-up a multi-boot to get a different OS alongside Ubuntu or else install a different OS inside a 
virtual machine on Ubuntu.  A lot of distro-hoppers do this sort of thing quite a lot anyway to 
explore different distros when they have the time but return to their main OS when they need to get 
work done.  

It sounds as though the problems with the Ubuntu-ised version will be fixed for the main release 
but the competition is before that isn't it?  

Regards from 

Tom :)

For further milestones towards 4.1, please refer to our release plan

The release is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X from our QA

and in:

you will find a very early packaging build for 4.1beta2 for Ubuntu saucy. The
Ubuntu PPA builders had trouble coping with the size of this build. To have a
build for testing at all multiple measurements had to be taken, the most
drastic being disabling Java and KDE. With the former also:
- disabling building the fancy new autopkgtests -- I ran them locally though
- make the libreoffice metapackage uninstallable as it depends on reportbuilder
  (which depends on Java and thus is not build)
  run something like:
     apt-get install libreoffice-writer libreoffice-impress libreoffice-calc

I hate to make the beta public like this, but before getting no testing at all,
I push this out in the current state with a big red warning label.
