For the most part, I tend to wait till the line goes to x.x.4 or x.x.5 before I upgrade to it.

I currently use 4.0.6 on all but one system, Ubuntu, XP, and Win7. I have a Win7 system that I use as a testing platform and installed 4.1.3 on it. I do not use that system much though.

As a person who hands out LO to others and recommends it to organizations, I tend to be conservative and wait till a line gets to x.x.4 before offering a DVD to those people and businesses. 4.1.4 cones out soon, so I will be looking at that for my next offering to those I hand out the DVDs to.

As I stated before, I use 4.0.6 myself, but may upgrade to that line then, or wait till 4..1.5. Since my "default" system is Ubuntu 12.04LTS 64-bit, I tend not to upgrade to the "latest and greatest", for the most part. I am waiting for 14.04LTS before upgrading Ubuntu, so this mind-set is applied to LO as well.

If you want to try 4.0.6 first, since you jumped from 3.6.x, it might be a good idea. It is at the end on that line and I use it all of the time.

Sure, you can try 4.1.4 when it comes out, but 4.0.6 is very stable and you can use it as a stepping stone to the 4.1.x line. The "messages" about 4.1.3 being too "buggy" for you [or others] suggests going to 4.0.6 and not going back down to the 3.6.x line. Later, when all of the "possible problems" with 4.1.4 comes in, you can decide if it is ready for you to use.

Still, personally, I would try 4.0.6, for now. Then look into 4.1.4 or 4.1.5 later.

re-download the installer to make sure that isn't the problem

On 13 December 2013 02:42, rost52bugquestcontri@online.dewrote:The fact that I had to downgrade from to 4.0.6 due to bugs and
Nino's proposal to install 2 versions parallel made my thinking that it
would be very efficient to have the install wiazerd modify to use it to
replace a version or install it parallel to an existing one.

I am just hesitant to go trough the work of installing LibO through the
command line.

In my case I would install 4.0.6 (stable) and (with some nasty bugs for me but some interesting features as well). With 2 versions I also could
do easy testing for bug reports.

Is there interest/support for having the installed wizard modified to enable
parallel installations?
