A bit slow announcing this one, the bundled python in 4.1.4 and earlier
has some various potential security flaws which are fixed in a later
version of python. So we now bundle that later version of python since
4.1.5. It's recommended to use that version of LibreOffice (unless you
get your LibreOffice as part of a Linux distro in which case python is
typically provided by the system rather than bundled into LibreOffice).


Which version of Python are you using?  2.xx or 3.xx?

I am getting back into Python and it would be good to know what version is in the newest versions of LO.
4.1.5/6 and 4.2.2/3

I just dumped the 4.1.5 version of LO that got from the PPA repository, since it has a different menu icon set over the one I installed fresh from the LO download site. I was/am using Linux Mint 16 which had 4.1.3 in its internal repository.

May end up with Ubuntu 14.04LTS when it comes out on April 17th [or so], if the install problems with 13.10 is not there in the new version. Had 12.04LTS till a few weeks ago.

I do not know which Python installs are available for either OS, but I would say that I would rather use the one LO developers are using instead of any other version. Though, I do not know what coding environment is best for that version either. Have to think about that one later, when I have time to open up the Python books again.
