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
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.

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 22.214.171.124 is the stable
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
http://www.libreoffice.org/download 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
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
"Tools - Options - Language Settings - Languages". On the right
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
