I’m happy to announce that the first 3.0 alpha packages are
available in the Build Service project.

Unfortunately, the build has succeeded only on openSUSE 10.3, 11.0 and
Factory-i586. You might expect the build for openSUSE-10.2, SLED10 and
Factory-x86_64 with the next alpha (within 2-3 weeks).

The package version is 2.99.21. It is based on the upstream dev300-m21


It is an alpha version and might include even serious bugs. It is intended for
enthusiasts and beta testers. We will be happy if you could try it and report
bugs. See below for the known bugs.

The packages with localizations are renamed from OpenOffice_org-<lang> to
OpenOffice_org-l10n-<lang>. Also the localized help content is split into the
optional OpenOffice_org-help-<lang> packages. Finally, the American
localization is split into extra packages.

Where to get it:
