Which version to get?

Hi all

I just noticed that there were some improvements in the download page. Version 3.6.1 is now the default suggested version (unlike what is recommended here http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan)

But there are some warnings "But since this is the second version in the 3.6 series, please read the release notes (see right)."

On the release notes page you get "LibreOffice 3.6.1 Final (2012-08-29) This is the second release from the 3.6 branch of LibreOffice.It contains many exciting new features, and is the recommended version for early adopters and power home users. (See this page for LibreOffice 3.5.)"

If you do click on "this page" you arrive at http://www.libreoffice.org/download-more/

I think this page needs URGENT updating... Not only it says that the previous (and buggy) version 3.6.0 is "Our latest, feature rich version" which obviously is not true, but also that version 3.5.5 is the "Previous version" (although there is a link to version 3.5.6 further down...)

Obviously this is none of my business, but I'm sure TDF can do better than this at promoting this office suite...

Regards,
Pedro

Good find,

Copying the website mailing list on this so someone with access to update
the page

Hi all,

for you info: Bugzilla will send a mail to
<[hidden email]> for every new bug with Component WWW.
Mostly these bugs will be fixed after short time because these mails
from Bugzilla are very visible in the flood of mails and someone will
take care quickly. So normally the best way to get something like the
obsolete contents Pedro found fixed is simply to write a report like
"Bug 54408 - website content update".

Best regards

Rainer Bielefeld

Thanks for noticing Pedro. Fixed.

(It would be more time-efficient for you I guess, if you just send a
reminder that the page is forgotten or so, without the rest of the
writing ;-) )
