Subject Re: [RELEASE]: propose AOO 4.1.0 RC
Date Thu, 03 Apr 2014 15:34:52 GMT
ATTENTION: we have to repackage the windows builds, the vote will
continue because we change nothing, just repackage the install packages

I have built with the release=t flag to be prepared for future patches
that will allow us for example to upgrade a 4.1 or 4.2 to an 4.3. The
whole mechanism is very complex and it seems that we have overseen a
small detail. No big thing we just have to rebuild for now and have to
test the patch mechanism a little bit more.

That means also that the msp have to be used even more careful. They
work to upgrade a 4.0.1 to a 4.1 but the next msp for a potential 4.2 or
4.1.1 can't be applied to a patched 4.0.1.
