Release Notes

There are a number of known issues being worked on:

- The Windows build is an International build – you can choose the user interface language that is suitable for you. The help content is not included. We are working on the online version. Alternatively, it will be possible to install it separately.
 - The Linux and MacOSX builds are English builds with the possibility to install language packs. Please browse the archives to get the language pack you need for your platform.
– The LibreOffice branding and renaming is new and work in progress. You may still see old graphics, icons or websites. So please bear with us. This also applies to the BrOffice.org branding – applicable in Brazil.
 - Filters for the legacy StarOffice binary formats may be missing.
