FYI, list of bugs reported in Beta 2:
It crashes on startup with the error:
/opt/libreoffice/program/oosplash.bin: symbol lookup error: /opt/libreoffice/program/oosplash.bin: undefined symbol: sal_detail_initialize, version PRIVATE_1.1
Debian Testing, 32-bit. Version 3.3.2 works.
Dear LibreOffice team,
we are in 2011 now. Yet you still use this ancient presentation wizard and the task pane as default. The drawing toolbar should also be removed, as it should be summarized in one little icon on the top page.
I suggest working to deuglify the UI in 3.5 and 3.6 before creating a 4.0 LO.
The toolbars should be on the left side of the screen. You know, the monitors get wider and not higher.
I hope to see great results soon!
A faithful LO user
