Putting "Beta" somewhere would be a good help. Members are installing the latest "Beta2" and are mostly unaware that it is a beta. As you said the current version of LibO is really not meant to be used on a production machine. But they still do it regardless and expect it to be bullet-proof.


A good example is Firefox. If one looks at "About Firefox", it is written "Firefox version 3.6.11", and likewise, the Beta version is written "Firefox version 4.0b6". With clear labelling like that, when my mother calls me and has a computer problem, even she is able to know what version of Firefox she is using. That's the kind of precision I would like to see with LibreOffice.

OpenOffice 3.2.1 shows a version number, but I remember that OpenOffice 3.0 and 3.1 did not show the version number but only the internal build number (ex.: OOO310m10).
