I switched to Libre Office mostly because I was so thrilled with the documentation. How nice to hear that it is being updated along with the software.

I do not read or speak German but would be happy to help proofread an English version.
How do I go about joining the Docs Team?

Hi :)
The Base Handbook for LO 3.6.x has been available for some time but the German Team have just 
finished writing their Handbook for the 4.1.x branch and there have been quite a lot of additions.

If anyone can join in and help them translate or help proof-read or get screen-shots in English (if 
needed) then that would be fantastic.  The Docs Team is a difficult one to join and it means 
signing up to a couple of 3rd party independent sites, such as ODFAuthors, but they are all a good 
bunch and do good work so once you get past the initial hurdles it's usually good to be par of the

Hello *,
next release of the German Base-Handbuch has been uploaded to

Version 4.1 shows the new functions in the Query-Editor and gives a hint
about changes in the listfields of forms and using this changes with macros.

Many content has been added. Base Handbuch 3.5 had 303 pages, 4.0 had
349 pages and 4.1 has 385 pages.

I will have a look which content could be good for the English version
of the handbook.
I have put the lists of content of the three versions of Base-Handbuch
in a Calc-document. It's all in German, but shows a little bit, where we
have changed and added content.

You can download this document here:

There are also changes in the chapters. But it can't be written down in
some sentences here.

You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong
You cannot help the poor man by destroying the rich.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away man's initiative and independence.
You cannot help small men by tearing down big men.
You cannot lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer.
You cannot keep out of trouble by spending more than your income.
You cannot establish security on borrowed money.
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they will not do for themselves.
