OpenOffice 4.1.2-RC2 available (and happy birthday!)

Andrea Pescetti-2
As a small gift for the 15 years of OpenOffice (OpenOffice was released
as Open Source on 13 October 2000, as Louis reminded us during ApacheCon
Budapest), we now have OpenOffice 4.1.2-RC2 available.

OpenOffice 4.1.2-RC1 has been tested for more than a week without major
bugs or regressions reported. Almost all relevant issues were tested and
verified fixed, even though we still need help with some.

Note that, since there is still some delay for building and uploading,
RC2 is current as of revision 1707648 (last accepted commit, see
https://svn.apache.org/viewvc/openoffice/tags/ for the SNAPSHOT change),
so 4 days ago.

A few reported bugs on RC1:
- RC1 was missing Linux 64-bit DEB packages and had some incorrect
scripts for source checksums; these are now fixed.
- https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=126305 additional patches
were needed, these are in RC2
- Windows installation: a user reported "Installation aborted with the
message that I lack access to registry". See http://s.apache.org/Z6v and
https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=126587 ; RC2 should not have
any changes in this respect, but possibly Windows users can
explain/check/guide.
- https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=107619 is not completely
solved, a fix came when RC2 was already being prepared and it is not
included
- Several release blockers were addressed (Bugzilla link below)

RC2 can be downloaded from
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/openoffice/
open "binaries", then the language code, then you will find installers.
If you can't download it now, it means it is still synchronizing, try
again in a few hours.

For QA, the link to use for verifying "release blocker" bugfixes is this
one (you will need a Bugzilla account to see it and to verify bugfixes):
https://bz.apache.org/ooo/buglist.cgi?cmdtype=dorem&list_id=170710&namedcmd=4.1.2_approved_and_fixed&remaction=run&sharer_id=7

Only the issues marked as RESOLVED FIXED are still to be checked. If you
verify that everything works as expected, please mark the issue as
VERIFIED FIXED (or post a comment, specifying your Operating System and
language). It is fine and useful to have two independent verifications
of a bug, especially on two different operating systems.

Remember: testing is important since 4.1.2-RC2 can be a release we
actually vote upon. We are seeing a few release blocker requests coming
in but I'll wait that everything is properly tested before seeing
whether this deserves a RC3. So if you didn't test RC1, please test RC2;
you can actually use it for day-to-day tasks too for a few days, for
more realistic testing.

Replies to the QA list only, if possible, thanks.

Regards,
   Andrea.

Hi Andrea, all

I just installed RC2 and noticed that it is not bundled with the latest
version of the dictionaries (English and Portuguese at least).
If I check for Extension Updates the latest version is available for
update.

The installer should include the latest version of bundled extensions.

Cheers,
Pedro

English should be OK. Please comment on
https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=126573 to verify or reopen.

I don't know about Portuguese. If you can, open a new issue: product
native-lang, component pt or pt-br depending on the affected version(s)
and 1) put me (pescetti) in CC; 2) Set the flag "Release Blocker ?" to
notify the dev list.

Regards,
   Andrea.
