OK, then where I said "Splash Screen", I meant "Start Center".  

In all cases I have ever seen the Splash Screen immediately transitions to the Start Center screen; on Forum we usually refer to the "Start Center" as the Splash Screen.

Sorry, that is very confusing for the user...

The Start Center is part of the program, while the Splash Screen is part
of the startup process.

​I was happy that I could build 4.2 recently on Linux-32 without issue! WOO
HOO!

Re "new" features...there is quite a backlog of translations, including
items in the Help section that are now about 3 years in arrears until 4.2.0
is out. Likely many other improvements including the recent DB access
glitch that Damjen fixed. Timewise, I think there is a bit more to do for
4.2.0 but probably not much.

Like others, I'd like to see AOO move on to 4.2.0 rather than 4.1.5.

There are serious regressions in 4.1.4 for Macs. The fix needs to be released now, not wait
until 4.2.0

Let's test! ;-)


It's a bit difficult since neither the OP nor joesch describe the steps to test DDE in https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=127601

However if the idea is to load dde-test.odt and then Update the values so that the values in odt reflect a change in the ods, then I do not get a crash but the values are never updated under Windows 10 (see attached image).

In fact these values are not updated regardless of the AOO or LO version used under Windows 10...

Question: Is CentOS 5 still our preferred version, or should we deprecate
CentOS5 for CentOS 6?

There are some things that 4.2.0 requires requires some updated 3rd party
libs, like zip 3.0.0 or later, etc.

If I had to vote, I'd say w/ assume (and stay w/) CentOS 5 since the upgrade to
CentOS 6 will likely cause a lot of potential for regressions.

Re: AOO 4.2.0-dev builds

I thought we add all dependencies to the build process. (thats why our
build takes ages.)
I thought the only distibution dependency is the build environment.
Maybe I am wrong. If so I do not understand how CentOS5 can be
compatible to everything else.

Re: AOO 4.2.0-dev builds

Jim Jagielski
True, but not ALL dependencies... for example, we require egrep :)

But Zip 3.0.0 is one specifically checked for:

It does look like all previous builds, up to and including 4.1.4 were done on
CentOS5 (for the released binaries).

So the question is that w/ 4.2.0, do we no longer support CentOS 5 as a
supported build platform. Another dependency seems to be GIO, but we
can build w/o that. But is that really an option for our community builds??

And at least 1 fix that address all platforms as well, so I do think a 4.1.5 will
be required.

Also, as mentioned on a different thread, the move from 4.1.x to 4.2.x
will mean that some older platforms will likely need to be dropped
and/or deprecated. For example, CentOS 5 lacks GIO-2.0, which means
that it is no longer, afaict, a candidate for our community build server
setup (which is what 4.0 and 4.1 were built on). Also, OS X 10.7
will likely need to be deprecated for 4.2.0.

The long and short is that there are, and possible will be,
some AOO users that cannot move to 4.2.0 and so we should
make sure that our "final" 4.1.x build is as good and solid and as
stable as we can make it.

Re: AOO 4.2.0-dev builds

In reply to this post by Jim Jagielski
CentOS 5 is now EOL, even its maintenance updates ended on 31 March 2017. I
think we have to move to CentOS 6.

I made GIO the default VFS searched by configure instead of GnomeVFS, as
that's what everybody has been using for years; AOO is pretty much the only
application still pulling in that ancient package with who knows what
security issues. It was done in this commit:

r1812655 | damjan | 2017-10-19 18:35:49 +0200 (Thu, 19 Oct 2017) | 6 lines
Changed paths:
   M /openoffice/trunk/main/configure.ac

GnomeVFS was deprecated 9 years ago. Make GIO, its replacement,
the default searched by configure.ac instead.

----

If we really need GnomeVFS back, we can revert that commit, or use
./configure switches to favor GnomeVFS over GIO.

To answer Damjan's question "when are these 4.1.x releases going to
stop?", we need to continue with 4.1.x builds, and releases as needed,
at least until 4.2.0 development is complete.

Re: AOO 4.2.0-dev builds

In reply to this post by Damjan Jovanovic
The more I think about it, I agree that deprecating CentOS5 for 4.2.x is the
Right Way To Go.

I plan on creating 2 CentOS6 VMs this weekend: one 64 and the other 32bit.
I'll put the CentOS5 VMs "on storage" for 4.1.x.

I am uploading to:

    http://home.apache.org/~jim/AOO-builds/ <http://home.apache.org/~jim/AOO-builds/>

4.2.0-dev builds for Linux64 and Windows... After that will
come Linux32 and macOS (assuming it builds... I've had
issues before).

These are based on HEAD of trunk, ~r1816311. The Linux builds
are built on CentOS 6.9.

Re: AOO 4.2.0-dev builds

Matthias Seidel
Thanks, I could download and install the build now.

However, the bug [1] is still present for me on Ubuntu 16.04.3 (64bit).

So it is not only an issue when building on Ubuntu 14.04 (like our
buildbots do).

When you get that error, before clicking "OK", please attach gdb and run
"thread apply all bt", and post the output.

We should move to CentOS 6. I've explained it in detail at
https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=127513 more than 3 months ago
and I'll happily discuss this in a thread bearing an appropriate title.

For any further 4.1.x release (if need be) I would definitely stick with
CentOS 5; changing would not make sense. But for trunk there is no
reason to delay the upgrade, see again my issue above.

This is correct but it misses a (probably taken for granted) detail: the
focus is only on 4.2.0.

Future 4.1.x releases may happen only if we need to fix regressions or
need to push a security fix. But no feature or "normal" bugfix work
should happen on 4.1.x any longer.

If we agree on this, then we are probably all on the same page as for
the roles of 4.1.x and 4.2.0.

   Andrea.
