Hi :)
Err, just 1 correction.

It's the 4.0.4 that is the most recent stable version. There is a 3.6.7 which is also stable but i would go for the 4.0.4 in almost all cases now.

The 4.1.0 is the first in the newer series and as such it brings in newer functionality and features. Most people will find it plenty stable enough. Even the alpha-test and beta-test versions were plenty stable enough for most people that used them but many people will be avoiding the 4.1.x branch until it reaches at least 4.1.3. Right now it's the best choice if you want cutting-edge or new features.

It's described on

There is a little graphic on the "Release Plan" page
although the colour-coding is possibly confusing. It might do better to use red, amber, green = as traffic lights do. Reducing it down to 3 colours might help anyway. It used to be much larger on the page which made it much easier to understand at a glance. I think it's been made too small now. However the graphic was an inspired stroke of genius when it was first created.

    Hi Sandor

    As a long time successful user of Star Office, OpenOffice, and now
    settled on LibreOffice in Windows and Linux, I am saddened to hear
    bad luck with the installation. Version is the stable
    version so
    it should not (not for me anyway) give any language issues with it's

    Firstly make sure that you have downloaded the correct language base
    file and it's assistant. Go to the download page here and then just below the green
    "Main Installer" and "LibreOffice built-in help" click on the link
    the version you wanted? Change the language". On this next page go
    the list, left column until you see the one "English (GB)" and
    click on
    it. A page will show with your two needed files and the correct
    you are looking for. Click in the green bars mentioned to download

    What you can do is install it the same way you did, with just the
    you want i.e. the Calc and Draw as per your previous install. To make
    sure your language is the one you need open Calc, and go to the
    menu bar
    "Tools - Options - Language Settings - Languages". On the right
    you can
    set the "User Interface" "Locale setting" to English UK, and your
    "Default Currency" as well if you so choose, You would also need to
    change you "Date acceptance patterns" as well for your language and
    country pattern, Date month Year etc.

    That should sort you out and give a better experience with LO. If you
    need furhter help and assistance, please reply. I can send you
    screenshots of what I am referring to as well, as I live in South
    Africa, and have set mine to work perfectly with my country locale
    language settings.
