Further LibreOffice 3.3.x releases

I see that LibreOffice Portable executables for 3.4.2 don't have "Test" in their name anymore. Does that mean that further releases of the 3.3.x series won't be portablized? Or perhaps as some sort of LibreOfficeLegacy release?

At this point, a release candidate of 3.3.4 is already there, the final release is due in a week, and 3.3.5 is also planned.

I understand that many users want new features, but I would like to point out that the 3.4.x line still has some unsolved bugs that may be deal-breakers for some groups of users (for instance, bug #39510, "CRASH closing document with footnotes", might be quite incovenient for academic users).

Whatever the decision might be, thank you for all your efforts.

Probably Not

The fact is that there will be 'deal-breaker' bugs to someone in every release. There are some in 3.3.3 that some people hate as well. If a particular bug affects you, you can temporarily stay with the older version. We will likely not maintain the 3.3.x releases as a LibreOfficePortableLegacy branch as there won't be much call for it. The Document Foundation is now calling 3.4 production-ready, so that is what we will push out as our production release. And 3.4.3 should be out in a couple weeks which should fix the bug you mentioned.

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