3.6.7 is the end-of-line release for the 3.6.x line. Stable but does not have all of the "good stuff" that was presented in the 4.0.x line.

4.0.4 is the current release of that line, with 4.0.5 was originally scheduled to come out this week, but has been rescheduled to the week of the 19th.

4.1.0 is out now, but 4.1.1 should be out by the end of the month.

As for which one that I would install on my Windows or Linux systems, well I have it installed. 4.0.4.

Unless there is something you must have that is in the 4.1.0 version and not in 4.0.4, then you might want to think about it real hard before you install 4.1.0, if you want to use it on a "business system" or have 100% uptime. Sure 4.1.0 has the most cutting edge options, but if you are a "business user" I would stick with 4.0.4.

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.

Subject: Re: [libreoffice-users] LibreOffice installation issue.

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 your
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 bars
"Main Installer" and "LibreOffice built-in help" click on the link "Not
the version you wanted? Change the language". On this next page go down
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 language
you are looking for. Click in the green bars mentioned to download your

What you can do is install it the same way you did, with just the apps
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 and
language settings.

To Whom it May Concern,
I've installed the latest version of Libre Office to my PC. Version
I selected only calc and draw programs to be installed, along with
language English (UK) only.
Doing that the program wouldn't run after successful installation.
After the failure I uninstalled it and I could see only invalid

I think unselecting the language English (US) or English (South Africa
?) was a mistake but I was able to do it and it is wrong.
If the language is essential for the application to run it shouldn't be
an option to install.
I also find very hard to find this email address on your website. I bit
