I've tried Chrome, Seamonkey and Firefox.  In Chrome, after about two
minutes of waiting for the download to start, I get a web page saying
that the site is unavailable.

In Seamonkey and Firefox, it says "Waiting for" and nothing ever comes through.

I always do the help download first - it's smaller and gives me a
faster success - when it works.  Again, this is for the English Deb
x86_64 version.

I tried this:

$  wget
(, 2a01:4f8:190:3144::2
Connecting to
(||:80... connected.
HTTP request sent, awaiting response...

And that's as far as it gets.

I can ping the site, but no download luck.

This has always worked before from Chrome directly through the link.

(I accidentally clicked early and also could not get the rpm version -
same problem.)

I also tried to download the current 4.2.0 version - same problem.

Also tried this:

$ scp

Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes

At least I get something back here, but no download....

Last ditch:  I tried clicking on the main download link, and I get the
donation page just fine, but still no download.

Any suggestion not tried above would be most welcome....

That is the version I just checked which was working fine for me.

I should clarify - this is the Deb x86_64 download that is not working.

I'll have to get back to you on that when I get home tonight.  Our
company firewall is having access problems through the download links:

I have redacted our company identifiers.  It could also be a problem
with the mirror's security - we're kind of tight on that.

This used to work - I routinely download the updates at work, but
yesterday this happened here and last night I could not connect from
home, either.

Hi :)
Sorry!  I missed all that.  It seems to be working now.

My web-browser tries to block such downloads but i just click on the
"Allow" button in the grey 'tool'-bar that appears at such times and
then the pop-up appears asking if i want to save or open it.  So, it's
working now afaik.

I'm not certain but hasn't the downloads&donations page been
re-organised?  It seems really clear now that donations are optional.
All the download bit is in the top section of the page and then a
clear line dividing the page into 2.  The lower part deals with
optional donations.  I'm sure it wasn't as clear as this before but
maybe it was?

Regards from
Tom :)

Is the download page working?

The site may be overloaded at the moment - I can't get the help

Hi :)
Hopefully everyone here gets these announcements but since we have
been unusually "stressy" about it over the last couple of days i
thought i would forward the official announcement so we all know
we stand.

Berlin, February 20, 2014 - The Document Foundation announces
LibreOffice 4.2.1, three weeks after the availability of
4.2. The first minor release - based on a shorter cycle than
expected -
solves over 100 problems, introduced by the larger than usual code
refactoring of the LibreOffice 4.2 family. Changelog is available

"LibreOffice 4.2 was extremely ambitious, in terms of code
Because of this, we planned an extensive quality assurance cycle,
on automated tests followed by QA sprints in December and January,
we were not able to catch all the issues", says Thorsten Behrens,
Chairman of The Document Foundation. "Based on early adopters
developers and QA experts have jumped in immediately, and have
the most urgent problems in less than three weeks, showing the
importance of our large community."

LibreOffice 4.2.1 and LibreOffice 4.1.5 will be on stage at CeBIT
Hannover from March 10 to March 14 (Hall 6, Booth H14). In
Florian Effenberger and Italo Vignoli will speak about LibreOffice
the Open Source Conference.
