OpenOffice_org 3.2 beta3 available for openSUSE

The 3.2 beta3 packages for openSUSE is now available in the Build Service OpenOffice:org:UNSTABLE project and include many upstream and Go-oo fixes.  Please, look for more details about the openSUSE OOo build on the wiki page.

The package is a beta version and might include even serious bugs, so if for testing purpose only.

The next beta4 build should be available one week from now. Hopefully, it will be the last beta before the release candidate (Planned for the 17th of December). There is still a theoretical chance that the final release might be available before Christmas but you we will most likely need to wait until the first half of January.
