[Libreoffice-qa] [ANN] LibreOffice 4.2.3 RC2 test builds available

Hi *,

for the upcoming new version 4.2.3, the builds for rc1 are now
available on pre-releases.
As with the previous builds, there are also 64bit builds for Mac
available.

See

https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan/4.2#4.2.3_release

for the complete schedule. (no additional rc is planned for 4.2.3)

Grab the builds from here here:

 http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/pre-releases/


If you've a bit of time, please give them a try & report any severe
bugs not yet in bugzilla here, so we can incorporate  them into the
release notes. Please note that it takes approximately 24 hours to
populate the mirrors, so that's about the time we have to collect
feedback.

The list of fixed bugs relative to 4.2.3 RC1 is here:

http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/pre-releases/src/bugs-libreoffice-4-2-3-release-4.2.3.2.log

So playing with the areas touched there also greatly appreciated  -
and validation that those bugs are really fixed.

Special thanks to all QA, developers, bugreporters who did make this possible.

You'll find the number of bugs along with the names in the wiki (
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/4.2.3/RC2#Thanks_to_all_who_took_part_in_handling_the_issues
)

Of course also big thanks to contributors who do great work in other
areas that cannot be put into numbers!

Thanks a lot for your help,
Christian

Chrisitan, *,

Great! The release cycles roll on...

But please also fix the web site.  The 'Development versions' page is still listing  LibreOffice 4.2.3 RC1,  and  LibreOffice 4.1.5 RC2--STILL!.

The release so far is only on pre-releases server, not on the mirror network.

We never did update the development-version download pages to remove
references when a release was made final, It has only been updated
when a new RC/beta/alpha build was announced to the public, but never
when they have been promoted to the final release.

So it would be wrong to list 4.2.3 rc2 on the page at this point,
since it has just been provided to early-testing/QA. The public
announcement follows one day after (minimum).

ciao
Christian

Ubuntu tester will also find builds for trusty:
 https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/ppa
 https://launchpad.net/~libreoffice/+archive/libreoffice-4-2

as usual.

Best,

This is not how the release-process works unfortunately.
We cannot snip with a finger and have new build available immediately :-)

And is nothing strange a bug being fixed after the tag for another
release has been created. You cannot change time :-)

We're still in the early-adopter/end-user phase of the release with
4.2.3 (that time-wise is 4.2.2, since there was an additional release
squeezed in) - so it is somewhat expected that it is not ready for
everyone out there. It's also a corner case with absolute references
and doesn't affect all users.
So while surely annoying if you're affected, not a stopper from my
point of view.

ciao
Christian

OK, guess that is correct.  Logic being the 'Development versions' web page should not display it until it hits the public mirrors.  Though we do link to the TDF pre-release server directly from the page.

That may be the way it was done previously, but rational for the new web site design suggests it needs to change.
With 4.2.2 released to Fresh, and 4.1.5 released to Stable only 4.2.3 rc1 should remain on the Development versions page.

Expect then that 4.2.3 rc2 alone will replace 4.2.3 rc1 on the Development versions page. Correct?

Hi Christian,

Do you want to publish LibreOffice-4.2.3 with a critical bug that will only in this version of Calc?
What do you think about that this release will be used in Ubuntu-14.04?
