OpenOffice.org Delays Version 2.0 Release

Filed under
Software

Although OpenOffice.org had planned to release the final 2.0 version of its open-source office suite on Oct. 13-the fifth anniversary of the founding of the organization-the company has decided to hold off due to a "show-stopping" problem with the software, community members said Wednesday.

Instead, OpenOffice.org will make available a third release candidate, probably by Friday, community manager Louis Suarez-Potts said.

No date has been attached to the final release, but Suarez-Potts said it could be ready as early as next week or as late as the end of the month.

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released

KDevelop 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 released We today provide a stabilization and bugfix release with version 5.2.2 and 5.2.3. 5.2.2 was tagged 6 weeks ago, but we never managed to release it because we did not have the patience to fix the Windows installers in time due to a broken CI. Windows installers are provided for 5.2.3 again. We'll only provide source tarballs for 5.2.2 and we encourage everyone to just skip this release and use 5.2.3 which contains a few more bug fixes. This is a bugfix-only release, which introduces no new features and as such is a safe and recommended update for everyone currently using KDevelop 5.2.1.
