|The LibreOffice community is preparing the release of 3.5.0 There is a load of good new stuff prepared (more below...) and we want to make sure that it is well tested. You can now help to make version 3.5.0 a great one! At January 21 and 22 we have an international bug-hunting session with the first release candidate for LibreOffice 3.5.0 . Join :-)|
How to join
- Get the latest version (LibreOffice 3.5.0 RC2 (2012-02-01) - Release Candidate)
- Note that the release candidate usually replaces your current LibreOffice installation - see also the release notes.
- You may want to use the mechanism of parallel installation
- Install and start testing
- Report bugs you find
When: January 21 and 22
Any time you want ... however:
- Mentors are supposed to be available from 08:00 UTC to 22:00 UTC on both dates.
You are always welcome to hunt bugs at other dates/times, when you are not able to join this session!
What to test
There are always more ways to test: do your regular tasks, structured tests, or playing with the new features..
Choose what suits best for you :-) All testing is great and important!
So take one of those:
- your own favorite features
- look at the new 3.5 features
- pick up a test case from the standard regression test
- Here some useful queries what will lead you to bugs needing your contribution:
Find a bug?
When you are really sure: add it to our bug database. When you want to discuss it, use chat or mail, fast and direct.

- discuss it on irc
- via QA mailing list
If there is a bug that you want to pin point as clear as possible, then bibisect (explained by Bjoern Michaelsen) will be a great tool for you!
