Automatic Updater for LibreOffice

If you were sent here automatically, your LibreOffice daily build was updated automatically. Thank you for helping improve LibreOffice through daily builds.

This website is part of the automatic updater QA process. In release builds we may want to show the user information after major updates.

Updater Improvements

A list with the most important improvements to the automatic updater starting at 2017-08-22: (Please check that these features are working)

  • 2017-08-22: Updater GUI is enabled on Linux
  • 2017-08-25: Fixed the missing update channel information for the Linux builds. No automatic updates for builds between 2017-08-20 and 2017-08-25; requires manual intervention with LIBO_UPDATER_TEST_UPDATE_CHECK=1 LIBO_UPDATER_CHANNEL=daily-master-gandalf ./soffice to force the update despite a missing update channel. Builds after 2017-08-25 should update correctly on Linux again.

Known Issues

  • LibreOffice on Linux crashes with the following error: Fatal Python error: Py_Initialize: Unable to get the locale encoding. ImportError: No module named 'encodings' (Fixed with the build of 2017-09-16)
