Subject [VOTE]: Release Apache OpenOffice 4.1.0 Beta (RC)
Date Thu, 06 Mar 2014 08:55:50 GMT
Hi all,

this is a call for vote on releasing the available release candidate
(RC) as Apache OpenOffice 4.1.0 Beta. The Beta release is intended to
reach more early adopters and to receive more valuable feedback to
improve potentially critical areas for the final release.

Apache OpenOffice 4.1 is a minor update with many bugfixes and at least
2 major improvements. It's the first version where we have the
iAccessibility2 support integrated and available. A very huge step
forward to reach and better support disabled users especially on
Windows. The second improvement is the switch to 64 bit on MacOS. A long
and overdue "must do" shift forward to support newer APIs (replace
deprecated APIs)  and platforms on MacOS.
And we can provide again more complete UI translations and have now
support for 37 languages. New languages for this release compared to
4.0.1 are Bulgarian, Danish, Hindi, Norwegian Bokmal and Thai.

Apache OpenOffice 4.1 will be a further key milestone to continue the
success of OpenOffice.

An overview of release issues can be found under:

The release candidate artifacts (1) (source release, as well as binary
releases for 37 languages) and further information how to verify and
review Apache OpenOffice 4.1.0 Beta can be found on the following wiki page:

The RC is based on the release branch AOO410, revision 1573601! And a
fresh and clean RAT scan output of this revision can be found under

The vote starts now and will be open until:

to provide a release that is supported by the majority of our project
