The Internet, January 25, 2011 - The Document Foundation launches
LibreOffice 3.3, the first stable release of the free office suite
developed by the community. In less than four months, the number of
developers hacking LibreOffice has grown from less than twenty in late
September 2010, to well over one hundred today. This has allowed us to
release ahead of the aggressive schedule set by the project.

OK, now... here's a few deadly serious and hopefully short marketing and
related "things" that outsiders, product reviewers and others, including
those that "love" LibreOffice / OpenOffice, and those that do not, will
be looking for:
In no particular order:
1. It is critically imperative to show the difference between
OpenOffice.org, and LibreOffice, to hopefully elminate confusion as to
items like "what's this new LibreOffice, and what happened to OpenOffice
?", and "Is LibreOffice picking up where Ooo.org stopped ?"
Yes, WE know the answers to the above (grin, I think !), but we simply
MUST get the facts and situation to the OUTSIDE world...and soon.
2. Number 1 above SHOULD be also explained at any and all appropriate
LibreOffice online websites, pages, and in all potentially languages. If
not, potential user confusion can and will mount.
3. The initial Press Release that this reply is based on MUST VERY
CLEARLY and should on separate lines that DRAW users / potential users
attention quickly to those lines, state:
Here's where to download the new LibreOffice 3.3, available in the
[Clearly enunciated DOWNLOAD page here]
Here's where to find full information in one or more languages:
[Clearly enunciated INFORMATION page here]
Note that the initial Press Release does NOT quite do this -- thus, it
is an immediate concern for clarity.
There's likely more than just the above, but I wanted to quickly get the
above concerns and commentary out.
