Open Office Portable 3.30

Is there an Open Office Portable 3.30 coming anytime soon? What I am using now is fine but my Secunia is telling me I need to update and obviously I cannot do so at this time.

Thanks

LibreOffice

LibreOffice Portable is an updated version as it includes all the fixes in OpenOffice.org 3.3 as well as additional features and functionality. To package OpenOffice.org portably and utilize the name, you need specific permission from Oracle's trademark folks themselves and they have not given that permission to anyone. So any copy you see of OpenOffice.org later than 3.2.1 packaged portably is being done illegally.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

LibreOffice 3.4.2 vs. Openoffice 3.2

Hello together,

that's no good news. I'd also like to update to OpenOffice 3.3 portable because the LibreOffice Calc contains some annoying bugs in date format.
but....

So I'll continue working with OpenOffice 3.2 portable - that works fine for my behalf.

Thanks for the great idea and implementation of PortableApps!

best regards
Papua

Repackage myself

John,
Is it possible to repackage OpenOffice.org 3.3.0 using PortableApps.com Launcher (https://portableapps.com/apps/development/portableapps.com_launcher)?
And is it legal if I only use it for myself?

I live in Indonesia, and it is quite common that people here use illegal software, but I want to use legal software.

Just saying, the app is

Just saying, the app is called OpenOffice.org, not Open Office. And version 3.30 is not the same as 3.3

OOo is now Apache

Has the status of the OOo 3.3 update changed at all, since the project was turned over to Apache back in June? It's not clear to me if Oracle is still holding any of the trademarks.

Nope

Oracle still holds the trademarks though they are working on transferring them. And OO.o development is still at a standstill. For right now, I'd highly suggest switching to LibreOffice Portable. LibreOffice development has continued this whole time and many releases have been made, mainly due to the fact that so many OO.o devs dropped the project and now work on LO. And additional features have been added that won't be added to OpenOffice.org without recoding them due to OO.o's new license (Apache).
