  • Mac version doesn't bundle the mediawiki extension

The LibreOffice website is confusing.

It offers both v4.15 and v4.2.2 but says only OSX 10.6 is required for both.

Here is says OSX 10.8 is required for v 4.2.2.

I just spent a good 15 minutes searching the "new, improved" website trying to find the German language pack ('cause my wife and kids use it). The link at MacUpdate takes you to the main English download page without a hint of where to find different language packs.

The trick is to add the two letter code ("de" in this case) in place of the "www", e.g. "de.libreoffice.org/download". So, buena suerte, bon chance & viel Glück at finding the right language pack for you.

Yes, I do see a link to other languages on the "fresh" page, but it's still missing on the "stable" page at http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-stable/

Not sure. On http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-stable/ I see a selection for the language pack as well.

So everything is fine. Also the fresh version works out pretty well here. Why not just use that?

The link to other languages still does not appear on the stable page and I am not interested in using daily builds, but stable releases only. I solved my problem by replacing the download link with the country code, something than no everyone would think to do. I'm simply trying to find an easier solution for less savvy users.

Did you empty your browser cache?

It's working here. Also please understand that the fresh builds is everything but a daily build. That is something completely different.

This version, 4.2.1.1, is suddenly compatible only with OS X 10.8 and above. If you don't customarily look at the compatibility info when downloading an update, this may take you by surprise if you're running in OS X 10.7.5 or 10.6.8. Some developers are courteous enough to mention such a significant change in the change notes. Not here.

Thankfully, when you open up the .dmg file, you'll see the traditional 'NO!'

I agree, this is really annoying. Sadly I'm still running 10.7 which is the max I can go on my white iMac. I wonder what's the reason behind cutting off 10.7, which is only 3 years old.

A couple responses:

1) My previous reply in this thread was cut off from what was originally posted. Huh? After the 'NO!' was the emoji 'no' graphic font character. After that, I explained that on 10.7.5 that symbol appears on top of the icon for the new version of LibreOffice, warning you that it was not compatible with the running version of OS X.

2) If I recall correctly, LibreOffice cut off OS X 10.6.8 with version 4 and threatened to do the same to 10.7.x. They relented and supported 10.7.5 until now. I don't understand why. I seriously doubt LibreOffice is using Apple APIs anywhere in their code, so huh?

Typically this comes down to someone on the development team deciding to turn off older OS support in the Xcode compiler, turning the last supported version effectively into abandonware.

I went to their site, and it _appears_ that it's only the 64 bit version that requires 10.8 or higher. There are two MacOSX versions listed. There is a generic "Mac OSX Intel" that is 4.2.2.1 and does not say "10.8 or higher".

http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/?type=mac-x86&version=4.2&lang=en-US

I didn't actually try downloading it though.

Hi Jgj. Amusingly, I noticed the "Intel" (not 64 bit) version this morning at the LibreOffice.org site this morning! Sadly, I'm having trouble downloading a .dmg that isn't corrupted. Hmph.

Followup: I was able to download a working .dmg of 4.2.2 via the torrent link they offer. The direct download never worked. I still had one download FAIL via torrent, but the second attempt worked.

Attempting to run LibreOffice 4.2.2 the first time was DEADLY slow, as in minutes of time waiting for the thing to actually finish booting. But it did finish and did eventually work fine. Hopefully the second boot will go better.

In any case, we have access to LibreOffice updates for OS X pre-10.8 via this URL:

Works as well as I need it to. Also an added bonus Libre Office opens and imports AppleWorks and, I am told, ClarisWorks files.

LibreOffice itself is confused: in "About LibreOffice" it calls itself 4.2.0.4, but in Finder it's 4.2.4.

Able to keep the original formatting is good. Compared to Microsoft office Word, it impressed me a lot. Except sometimes new updates worked not so well for slowing down loads. Hope this can be solved later.

No, it is not the 4.0.0.1 version I use and want to comment, but the 3.6.4.3 one. Today, I wanted to start the hyphenation, but for the first time, the software hangs, and it will not finish the process. This is new to me, so I wonder if this is something that happens to it when the developer finds it outdated. I cannot use the version 4, because my system still runs on a G5 processor, not Intel, which is required for the 4.0.0.1 version.

Bjoernowitsch had trouble on 05 Apr 2012
As I downloaded the new release of LibreOffice, I found that the spell checker and hyphenation do not work. In the previous version of LibreOffice, 3.5.1, I was unable to set the file location for my documents freely, i.e. select a folder somwhere outside of the system disk. This was corrected in the 3.5.2, but instead, I find the language module, at least in Swedish, disabled.

In case I cannot remove my previous comment, I can now report that the most recent version of LibreOffice, the 3.5.2, works as it should. The spell checker now works in Swedish as well, and misspelled words are also underlined in red.

Diogo Cocharro had trouble on 26 May 2011
I support very much everything that as open source philosophy, and this product is a very good achievement, but as small bug (also the same in openoffice) that for me is very annoying, and it seems that wasn't noticed yet, when you turn on "invisibles" this changes the shape and distance of the characters.
I didn't move yet to libreOffice because of this, "I can not trust on what I'm looking".
Thanks
