Re: [tdf-discuss] outdated LibreOffice Portable (MS Windows)


Hello,

and if you look for the source code of their portable LibreOffice
version (6.2.1), you are directed to
https://sourceforge.net/projects/winpenpack/files/X-LibreOffice/program_sources/.
And the latest source code published there is: 5.3.3. And nothing about
LibreOffice 5.4, 6.0, 6.1 and 6.2.

And if you download the release file in an obscure zip-file-format, you
are not able with the usual tools to extract it and look into it.
Maybe there is an issue with the license regulations.

Regards,
Andreas

WinPenPack is open source, and - according to many users - is better
than Portable Apps. It is also maintained by volunteers, who seem to be
more active and more caring about LibreOffice than John Haller as they
have not missed a single release since we launched in 2011. I do not
think that it would be a problem to host it on LibreOffice servers to be
included in the stats. I would be happy to get in touch with them, and I
suppose they would be happy to be considered by TDF (something which has
not happened in the past).

Hello,

instead of the winpenpack project the portableapps project has links to
the TDF infrastructure. They have a download link to:
http://download.documentfoundation.org/libreoffice/portable/

I think the downloads from that URL will be counted in the TDF stats. I
don't know, if TDF got also the stats from the other download URL of
portableapps. Maybe the TDF admin team could ask John T. Haller about
such stats, if they are not already in TDF's hands.

And for the question about current versions: it needs always voluteers
that do the work and get some positive feedback and support in return.

Kind regards,
Andreas

What can we do to improve this situation?
There is an alternative developed in Italy:

http://www.winpenpack.com/en/index.php

They provide both LibreOffice 6.2.1:

http://www.winpenpack.com/en/download.php?view.1384

And LibreOffice 6.1.5:

http://www.winpenpack.com/en/download.php?view.1354

They usually release just a few days after TDF.

They have many positive reviews.
