Coming up on April 27: First Bug Hunting Session for LibreOffice 6.1
LibreOffice 6.1 is due to be released in mid August 2018, with many new features (those already implemented are summarized on the release notes page, with much more still to come).
In order to find, report and triage bugs, the Quality Assurance (QA) community is organizing the first Bug Hunting Session for LibreOffice 6.1 on Friday, April 27, 2018. All details are available on the specific wiki page.
In order to find, report and triage bugs, the tests during the First Bug Hunting Session will be performed on the first Alpha version of LibreOffice 6.1, which will be available on the pre-releases server on the day of the event. Builds will be available for Linux (DEB and RPM), macOS and Windows, and can be run in parallel with the production version – so you can test without affecting your existing stable installation.
Mentors will be available on April 27th 2018, from 8AM UTC to 8PM UTC for questions or help in the IRC channel: #libreoffice-qa (connect via webchat) and its Telegram bridge. Of course, hunting bugs will be possible also on other days, as the builds of this particular Alpha release (LibreOffice 6.1.0 Alpha1) will be available until the end of May.
During the day there will be two dedicated sessions focus on two of the tenders implemented in LibreOffice 6.1: The first to test the improvements on the image handling between 10AM UTC and 12AM UTC, and the second to test the HSQLDB import filter for firebird between 14PM UTC and 16PM UTC.
And the Month of LibreOffice is starting!
Throughout May we will be running the Month of LibreOffice, awarding cool stickers to contributors across the project. The Bug Hunting Session is your chance to get involved with the LibreOffice QA project, and grab a sticker during May – so get involved and help us make LibreOffice 6.1 the best release yet!
