LibreOffice Debian/Ubuntu Team growing
"Ich danke der Academy für das Erkennen von Talent."LibreOffice version for Ubuntu Raring in the LibreOffice PPA to the 4.0.1~rc2 version, that was announced as 4.0.1 final yesterday. As we dropped the old binfilter file import upstream in LibreOffice 4, LibreOffice fits again in the ppa with all localizations -- previously the PPA versions were restricted to a subset of languages, as the buildds for the PPAs might run out of disc space otherwise. Oh, and a boring sidenote just for completeness: LibreOffice on Ubuntu LTS has been getting a stable release update to 3.5.7 a while ago. And now that 4.0.1 rc2 is declared final, I expect it to be sponsored soon to Ubuntu Raring proper.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who made this possible:
- Rene Engelhard for his work on the Debian LibreOffice packaging, making all of this possible
- Boaz Dodin and Rico Tzschichholz for their tireless work and initiative on backporting current releases
- Christopher M. Penalver for churning through LibreOffice bugs in launchpad and on freedesktop, syncing and triaging them
- Benjamin Drung for fixes, tweaks and contributions to the LibreOffice packaging both at Debian and Ubuntu
