Hi :)
I really like these announcements now.  It is VERY clear about the
difference between the branches and completely avoids the confusion that
plagued us early on and the endless arguments/discussions on the Users

It's been difficult to think of a suitable name for the "advanced branch"
because the name for the other branch, "stable branch", kinda suggests
other names that were entirely unsuitable for it.  Calling it "Advanced
branch" is inspired and quite brilliant imo.  Hindsight makes it seem
obvious but we were really stuck for ages.

Congrats all!  Note that if you would like to or are able to spare even
1hour/week (or even less) and would like to help make LibreOffice smoother
faster then a good way of getting involved is to help out in the QA team
for a while.  You can do a lot of useful work in bug-triage even if you
have no aptitude nor skills in coding.

If you do have coding skills then you are probably better going straight
into the devs team but it can be fun to start off in triaging to mix with
non-coders and get more of an overview of current issues.  It might be
easier for you to spot which bug-reports are likely to be "Easy Hacks" than
it is for people such as me.  I get the impression the QA Team is hectic,
eclectic and fun.

Regards from
Tom :)

the sixth and probably last minor release of the LibreOffice 4.0 family,
targeted to corporate deployments - when backed by professional support -
and conservative users.

LibreOffice 4.0.6 solves almost 70 bugs and regressions over the previous
release, thanks to the work of an increasing number of QA volunteers.

LibreOffice 4.0.6 is not meant to be adopted by users of the more
advanced LibreOffice 4.1.x family, which offers additional features.
LibreOffice 4.1.3 will be announced soon.
