Coming up on 22 October: First Bug Hunting Session for LibreOffice 6.2

LibreOffice 6.2 is currently being developed by our worldwide community, and is due to be released in early February 2019 – see the release notes describing the new features here. We’re still early in the development cycle, so more features are still to come!

In order to find, report and triage bugs, the LibreOffice QA team is organizing the first Bug Hunting Session for LibreOffice 6.2 on Monday October 22, 2018. Tests will be performed on the first Alpha version, which will be available on the pre-releases server a few days before the event. Builds will be available for Linux (DEB and RPM), macOS and Windows, and can be installed and run in parallel along with the production version.

Mentors will be available from 07:00 UTC to 19:00 UTC for questions or help in the IRC channel #libreoffice-qa and the Telegram QA Channel. Of course, hunting bugs will be possible also on other days, as the builds of this particular Alpha release (LibreOffice 6.2.0 Alpha 1) will be available until mid-November.

During the day there will be a dedicated session to test the new KDE 5 integration available in LibreOffice 6.2 from 14:00 to 16:00 UTC.

All details of the first bug hunting session are available on the wiki. Come join us, and help to make LibreOffice 6.2 the best release yet!
