[Solved] Where to find the latest 3.0 beta?

Postby kkling » Thu Aug 07, 2008 5:00 pm

Where should I look to find the latest builds of the Mac OS version of the 3.0 beta? I know of this site http://ooopackages.good-day.net/pub/OpenOffice.org/MacOSX/ but I don't know which version I should choose. How should I interpret the file naming syntax? The latest file as of today is Dev_OOO300_m1. I notice that the naming syntax on that file is different than the others listed there. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Hi and welcome to the forum!

Go to the extended mirrors list, then choose a mirror site near you, and then go to the folder ./extended/developer/.

Here you will find the latest developer snapshots. They are anounced on GullFOSS (which you can subscribe to via RSS or Atom feed) where you will also find direct links to the mirrors.

Note that these are developer snapshots, i.e. they may have additional bugs.

An alternative is to go for the 3.0 Public Beta 2 which is known to be quite stable.
