Hi...no problems...just asking for advice. I have been testing the beta
builds of LO since it came out and
use openSUSE as my main operating system. On my "production" machine, I
have been using the "Stable"
builds provided by the SUSE repository which has worked fine. If there
any SUSE development people who
monitor this list, I hope that they chime in.
It seems as if the stable repository is ULTRA conservative...as I wait
for updates to the latest stable branch,
they are still pushing version 3.3.3. I have had no trouble at all with
version 3.4.2. 3.4.3 is already in RC status...
why the delay? So...my question is this: With absolutely no trouble
using the "vanilla" builds...I am thinking of
going to the LO vanilla latest stable builds.
What advantages does the SUSE builds (on SUSE) have over the vanilla
builds, if any? I am not too worried
about desktop integration, as it seems as if the vanilla builds
integrate and work fine (and look good too)....
Sorry if this is a bother and cluttering the list, but I just want some
advice from those "out there"...and/or any
word from the SUSE people what their master plan is with the stable
repository. The UNSTABLE is still
pushing 3.4.2 as if it's cutting edge...while 3.4.3 is already out
there. Of course, on my "production" environment,
I will be only using a stable build anyway...but I want to move forward
faster than the SUSE repository is....
You really need to be asking the SUSE people about this. Each distro
has their own release requirements that the LibO devs have no control
over. I know with Ubuntu unless there is a security problem that
needs to be fixed they do not update till the next release.
Thanks, Andy....I am going to the SUSE people too, but I just wanted
some input from here. Seems as if they are
NOT keeping up with the latest releases...for instance, the haven't even
put up 3.3.4 yet...the "super" stable branch.
Anyway....thanks for your comment.
