LibreOffice 3.5.3 for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and updated bibisect
As announced by The Document Foundation, LibreOffice 3.5.3 has been released today. Ubuntu users who cant wait to have this release on their system, can install it from the LibreOffice PPA right now. As far as I know, this is the first time that we have a Ubuntu package ready and build on the day of the release (3.5.3rc2 is 3.5.3 final), and this is the result of the simplification that both Debian and Ubuntu did in their packaging between 3.4 and 3.5. This package is also currently building in precise-proposed and will be a Stable Release Update for Ubuntu Precise. Since ~all the changelog bugs have already been verified, this hopefully will be available as an automatic update to all users of Ubuntu 12.04 LTS in one or two weeks.
I also updated the bibisect repository for LibreOffice 3.6. In now contains 62 LibreOffice installations from December 8th (LibreOffice 3.5 branch off) to April, 28th in one 1.1GB download. Good regression hunting!
