Subject Re: [RELEASE]: propose AOO 4.1.0 RC
Date Sat, 05 Apr 2014 21:01:59 GMT
Hi Yuzhen, all

Sorry for the delay but I was doing some more testing.

Here are my findings:

There is no problem updating from 4.0.0 to 4.0.1
The Startup Group, the desktop icon and the Add/Remove list are updated as
expected.

The problem only occurs when updating from 4.0.0 to 4.1.0 and from 4.0.1 to
4.1.0
There are 3 items that fail: there are 2 startup groups, there are 2
desktop icons and there are two entries in the Add/Remove Programs list.

Updating from 4.0.1 to 4.1.0 using the MS patch is a little better: there
is only one entry in the Add/Remove Programs list after updating (the 4.1.0
as expected). However there are still 2 desktop icons and 2 startup groups
(in this case the patch fails to set the OO icon as the group icon while
the full installer succeeds)

How do you want me to report all these in bugzilla? Or can you (or someone
in QA) add it to bugzilla and add me to CC so that I confirm it (and add
screenshots if needed)?

Regards,
Pedro
