I'd recommend a followup to the dev list. plino, when you do that you
might also add links to the security notices for the earlier version of
VC++ 2008.

The Dev list is for devs only. I have unsubscribed from it.

I got crap for posting there a few times (Jesús Corrius will certainly
remember "Change executable/sh names" - which went nowhere and are still
not changed btw), so I can't blame you.

Well, this is not the developers list and I don't want a discussion
that goes to nowhere :)
so here is my last message to this thread with my points:

1. LibreOffice and all the other applications (ok, unless they are
using private assemblies[1]) will always use the lastest updated
versions of the libraries installed in the system. Any user has many
old libraries installed in the WinSxS directory and it's not a
security threat because they are not in use.

2. The versions of the C++ libraries we are distributing are the last
ones available from Microsoft as a full package. According to the
security bulletin:

"These updates are not the versions on the download center. Microsoft
does not recommend customers redistribute any version other than the
full versions that can be downloaded from the Microsoft Download
Center (KB973544, KB973551, and KB973552)." [2]

And this is what we are doing. If you check the KBxxxxxx's mentioned,
these are the versions we are currently distributing.

3. When Microsoft provides new full versions of the Visual Studio 2008
runtimes, we will be happy to distribute them. So if you find new full
versions in the Microsoft Download Center, let us know and we will
update them immediately.
