Is LibreOffice a new fork of OOo, or is this essentially the same as
when the Mozilla Foundation completely took over the Netscape/Firefox
project? In other words, will new versions of OpenOffice.org continue
to be developed and supported/made available for download at
OpenOffice.org, or is OpenOffice.org (the product) now renamed
LibreOffice, meaning all new development will take place under that
This depends very much on the reaction of Oracle:
If they insist on keeping the trademark given to Sun Microsystems because the community hadn't an entity to claim violations and abuse, we will not be able to use our good name OpenOffice.org any more.
In this case we'll have to stick to LibreOffice, what will be a fork, because they probably won't allow their developers to code for LibreOffice while they try to keep the product alive and damage LibreOffice.
But this would be the public visible action verifying the fear that Oracle is much interested in Oracle (Open?) Office, but not in contributing to the OpenOffice.org community.
As they didn't announce their decision publicly, it's just an assumption to this state of time.
I hope very much that we'll have the chance to keep on working as the community we've been in the past, but with more freedom and broader support by people and constitutions previously hesitating to contribute and donating to a project lead and probably governed by a single company.
And is LibreOffice Beta the same as OpenOffice.org 3.3 Beta 1, but
rebranded? What's the relationship between the two?
I'm not a developer, but I as I've been told, its OOo3.3 Beta with some of the most stable Go-oo patches included.
... knowing about the problem of different target groups for developer and marketing / ux / user base...
