As soon as you branched the current version and contribute to changes
back to lift it to 3.4. ;)

I wish I could. I am a journalist/writer who happen to use Linux. I do contribute by spreading the word and helping users in migrating to Linux.


Didn't you raised the same question before? And there had been answers.
IIRC the people working on this could need some help. See

Yes. I did. It said that it may be available in 3 weeks. It's more than one and half month now and I was just checking. I wrote articles about openSUSE (especially one where I mentioned why I switched from Ubuntu to openSUSE) but I got a lot of mails about my remark on latest packages. LO 3.5 has some nice features such as Grammar check. Windows/Mac users can just grab the latest version and install. Linux users have to wait until its in repos (I am talking about average users). So, a lot of users asked how do I recommend openSUSE over Ubuntu when they get latest packages. I did not have any answer.

I do understand the resource crunch and by writing more about openSUSE I hope the user/contributor base will increase.

I appreciate your time and effort in helping out users like me, who in return can't be of much help, at least from development point of view :-)
