    • General: new naming scheme
      • Starting with this release candidate, the LibreOffice installer files have a new naming scheme. The most important is that "LibO" is replaced by "LibreOffice" in the names - so if you use scripts to download the packages, please update them to the new schema.
    • Linux deb and rpm:
      • Please read detailed instructions for different distributions
      • The Linux packages can be installed in parallel to LibreOffice 3.6, but not run simultaneously - documents will be opened in the version you've started first.
    • Windows:
      • If you notice undesirable interactions between LibreOffice and, please report this as a bug.
      • LibreOffice windows installers are signed by The Document Foundation.
      • All executable files and shared libraries in the LibreOffice installations are signed by The Document Foundation.
      • Duden Korrektor will work with this version only if you put the stlport_vc7145.dll from 3.6.x installation somewhere in your %PATH%. Note that you will have to have also MSVCR90.DLL installed on your system.

    Help files

    • The Windows multi-language installer as well as the langpacks do only contain localized UI. By default, LibreOffice uses online help - if you need help files on your disk, please install the helppack for your language. If there is no helppack for your language (because help has not been translated to your language), then you can install and use the English helppack or check the online help in any available language.
