for the RC2 to be released as AOO 4.0 (or even not) on


My question to this:

it seems, that not one IT-website in the internet knows about a RC of AOO 4. why you dont
start a PR-campain for the new AOO 4 and make a public testing of the RC?

Like SuperKK on the AOO blog says: "You need to work on your PR. Why were there no public
beta announcements? The LibreOffice propaganda machine has already convinced many people that
OO is dead. Release early, release often."

After finishing work on the major-release AOO4, i hope you bring out bugfix-releases more
often than all 6 - 8 month. i my opinion bugfixreleases all 3-4 month would be a good intervall...

btw: i switched to LO 3.5/3.6, after the OOo-develpoment was on-ice/ incubating, but a comparisen
of LO4.0 and AOO3.4.1 shows 1 important thing: You Apache-Guys need longer to bring an new
release and implement new features, but the quality of your product seems to be higher....

e.g LO announces improvments on Load/Save-speed over and over angain, but inĀ  the end, AOO
3.4.1 starts faster than LO 3.6. The improvments on the docx/xlsx/pptx-filters in LO are also
not as good as yours.

keep up the good work!
