Subject Re: Release 4.1.3 (4.1.4)
Date Sun, 02 Apr 2017 11:30:02 GMT
Hi Andrea,

Thanks for the clarification!

I found this page:

"The builds linked on this page are intended to be used for *final
testing* of release candidates by community volunteers."

But the "Buildbot output area" links to a page with snapshots for AOO
4.1.2. Not really helpful...

At least the Linux Buildbots are working again. Hopefully someone is
working on the Windows Buildbots after the migration to Win10/64bit.

Regards, Matthias
