Hi :)
These bug-hunting sessions can be a great fun.

It's only for a short time-period so you can find yourself racing
against other people who are also new to it all.  Even if you know
nothing about how to do it there are experienced people on-hand to
help.  If you don't know coding then that can even be an advantage
because you avoid getting embroiled in 'interesting' details.

Sometimes these competitions have led to prizes, such as netbooks and
things.  Bodhi Linux have such awarded a a few people netboks as top
prizes.  The QA team here did the same around a year ago.  I think
this time there isn't a prize but it's a good time to get in some
practice. Good luck all!

The Document Foundation (TDF) announces the schedule of the first
LibreOffice 4.3 bug hunting session, which will start with the
availability of the first beta of the new major release in calendar
week 21 (May 23 to May 25).

Participating will be easy. Details of the bug hunting session are
TDF wiki
where there is also a growing list of LibreOffice 4.3 new features
and improvements to check for bugs and regressions

To participate, it will be necessary to have a PC with Windows,
MacOS or Linux, and LibreOffice 4.3 Beta 1 (available at, plus a lot of enthusiasm.

Filing bugs will be extremely easy, thanks to the help of
volunteers who will be around on the QA mailing list
( and IRC channel

A second LibreOffice 4.3 bug hunting session will be organized -
the same pattern - immediately after the release of LibreOffice 4.3
Release Candidate 1, in mid June.

Tom thanks for the heads up. Will 4.3 be available for download in 
advance of the actual Beta release date/ I have been using the 4.2.4 RC1 
on my openSUSE 13.1 for the last week. So far no issues with CALC (at 
least my spreadsheets). Writer still has problems with a .docx document 
I get each month. Does not show some of the graphics. The version of 
Word is 2010.  I can enter a bug report if necessary and attach the 
Writer page and one from the PDF to show what it should look like.

Let me know where to post the bug.


openSUSE 13.1(Linux 3.11.10-7-desktop x86_64|
Intel(R) Quad Core(TM) i5-4440 CPU @ 3.10GHz|8GB DDR3|
