The LibreOffice community is preparing the release of 3.6.0. 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 3.6.0 a great one! At July 6 and 7 we have an international bug-hunting session with the third beta for LibreOffice 3.6.0. Join :-)

How to join

  • Get the latest version (LibreOffice 3.6.0 Beta)
  • Report bugs you find

When: July 6 and 7

Any time you want ... however:

  • Mentors are supposed to be available from 08:00 UTC to 22:00 UTC on both dates.

When you are not able to join this session, you're of course always welcome to hunt bugs at other dates/times ;-)

What to test

We aim at

  • doing as much testing on the 3.6.0 as possible
  • triaging all already filed issues, so that it's as clear as possible for the developers to step in!

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 3.6 features
  • pick up a test case from the standard regression test
  • Soon we will give some useful queries at this place, what will lead you to bugs that need some checking:

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.

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!
