LibreOffice 3.3.2 RC 1 Beta as Portable Version?

Is anyone working on portable version of the 3.3.2 RC1 release candidate/beta? I've really liked using portableapps.com versions of other betas and release candidates as a safer testing platform for trying out new versions.

Thanks in advance!

Why?

I am quite certain it takes a good amount of effort/time to update LibreOffice.
PA.com seems to be currently on overload as is, with all the outdated apps, drupal upgrade and the upcoming 1.9.0/2.0b release.

3.3.2 is just a bugfix release. It would simply be a waste of time having to update every time they release a new beta/RC.

Maybe if it was 3.5/4.0 or something.

The Document Foundation is happy to announce the first release candidate of LibreOffice 3.3.2. The upcoming 3.3.2 is the second in a series of frequent bugfix releases on top of our LibreOffice 3.3 product. Please be aware that LibreOffice 3.3.2 RC1 is not yet ready for production use, you should continue to use LibreOffice 3.3 for that.The Release Candidate 1 is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X

No RC but 3.3.2 would be great

in my opinion would be really waste of time to make every RC portable but I would support the idea that the bugfix versions are made portable. e.g. LO 3.3 has serious issues that stopped me working with it (EMF/WMF pictures make LO crash).
Maybe - but I guess the developers know it much better - it would be good to wait for a stable bugfix release (such as 3.3.2) because the release of bug fix release (3.3.1 and 3.3.2) were done very quickly after each other...

Update: Just seen that 3.3.2 was released:

you can do it by yourself

Installing libreoffice 3.3.2rc2 in Sandboxie(a software need to install first )

then find libreoffice's files in sandboxie folder(a virtual folder like this: C:\Sandbox\wyw)

the only two folder you must find them, one is libreoffice3 , another is fonts

last step , changing folders in C:\LibreOfficePortable\App with the new ones.
C:\LibreOfficePortable\App\LibreOffice----> libreoffice3(change folder name to LibreOffice)

C:\LibreOfficePortable\App\LibreOffice\Basis\share\Fonts\truetype---fonts(replace these files)

that'all......enjoy!

No, thats not all...

... it is not so trivial.

There are more tasks than simply copy two folders.

The result will not be a really 3.3.2rc3 portable, it will be a 3.3.1 (and th known issues) with the copy of a local installed 3.3.2rc2.

Paid for Software more or less?
