Damn perfectionists!!!

.92 test 03 is good. Very good.

Put it this way, with any less a gang of perfectionists than Texstar and the PCLOS crew, this would be version "5.1 ultra-stable"! At least! But no, it's version 0.92-test3.

Actually there may be sound reasons why, when 0.92 proper arrives, that it would be advisable to re-install if you installed from a test, but this release is good enough to try out and play with over the next week or so, with a view to going for 0.92 proper when it arrives.

Pondering FOSS foundations

In the case of the Document Foundation, the LibreOffice project needed an independent, solid and meritocratic entity dedicated to support it. In other terms, the OpenOffice.org community wanted to be its own boss and stop relying on corporate – or even third party – good will. If you attend the Community Track on the 31st you will be able to learn more about the Document Foundation and the other entities, but my message here is that while there is no silver bullet in these matters, forcing a community be hosted or to bend to a software vendor never works. It bends if it wants to; it goes whereever it wishes to go. In the case of the Document Foundation, independence and community rule prevailed over convenience; today the results do not need to be proven anymore. But it does not mean we hold the truth more than anybody else: we just ensured the community was in charge. Read more
