    General for this RC: release configuration

    • the Linux and Mac packages can be installed in parallel to LibreOffice 4.4, but not run simultaneously - documents will be opened in the version you've started first.
    • the Windows package will update a previously installed version of LibreOffice


    • LibreOffice 5.0 will be made available as 64bit version in addition to the 32bit version. Installing the 64bit version requires Windows Vista or newer, the 32bit Version runs on Windows XP or newer.
    • Trying to scan with the 64bit version on Windows causes a crash tdf#92478. Please use your system's scanning tool as a workaround.
