Does anybody know what happened to Neooffice? They haven't released an update since August 29th.

    Probably lost interest. The problem with the open source movement is most of the stuff is done as a hobby. When the authors lose interest it pretty much dies.

    I think there are only two guys who do most of the coding. The fact that they release any updates at all is pretty amazing.



    That said, the latest release I know of is November 1st. Beta 3 Patch 8. The August release is just the straight Beta 3.

    Thats the problem with the whole OSS movement. Where do you get support once the folks who wrote something realise they are spending enough time writing software for free and watching others packaging it and making a profit using free labor that they get tired of the whole thing and move on.

    Patch 8 is pretty good.

    Where do you get this "patch 8"? It just says beta 3 Aug 2006 on their page.

    Odd, I thought there were some direct links on the site.



    What happens is you install beta 3 and if there's a new patch when you start it up, it sends you to this page:

    Basically, you install Beta 3, then install the latest patch.

    Don't confuse the Beta number with the patch when talking about releases. The latest NeoOffice is 2.0 Beta 3 released on Aug.29th as mentioned above. But then updates are mentioned and a patch is an update....the latest patch brings NeoOffice to 2.0 Beta 3 Patch 10. If you look at the NeoWiki site, it will tell you what each patch addresses.

    I don't think anyone got that confused, but it was a good idea to make it clear.



    It looks like they patch it as often as I use the software.
