    • General for this Beta: parallel installation
      • This Beta release will install in parallel to your existing LibreOffice installation.
    • Linux deb and rpm:
      • please, read detailed instructions for different distributions
      • the Linux packages can be installed in parallel to LibreOffice 4.0, 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.

    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.
