Please change your bug handling system. Filing bugs with clear descriptions, screenshots and what not often results in NOTHING. No replies. No dev updates. No nothing! The bug submission system is like a big black hole. I’m convinced that a part of the problem is the extremely slow bug handling site, all the complex and non-explained options and settings i the forms and how hard it is to get an overview or filter bugs effectively.
Add a really simple voting system where people kan vote up bugs/requests they feel are important. Promise in advance to take a specia l look at solving the “bug of the month” i.e. the one with the most votes that month.
Add an incentives system where people easily can make targetted donations conditioned on a specific bug being fixed. Whoever fixes the bug gets the reward minus a share that goes to LibreOffice in general.
Create dedicated blogs for each program in the LO suite and have developers interact with people on a regular basis: talk about the future, alternatives, and so on.
Are you actually going to release a 3.5.0 version that does not identify itself as 3.5.0rc3? I know you say the rc3 is the latest, and the QUOTE Released version UNQUOTE are the same, but it is a bit daunting to see a download touting a FINAL, and when it is installed it is a damned release candidate!
The other thing, when I start 3.5.0(rc3) by clicking on an *.xls file in a folder, all i get is an error stating that there was a problem and a ‘recovery’ would be attempted the next time LO is started. WELL! that failed as well! So, I’m thinking you folks got a ways to go with this one.
SO>> for me, it’s back to 3.4.5 WHICH WORKED!
If it wasn’t for the fact I need a database program, I’d just load in Gnumeric and AbiWord and forget this great large thing!
