5.1.3

There's been no portable version for 5.1.2. However in "Outdated Official Portable Applications" it is written "LibreOffice 5.1.2 (John building...)" since April 17 2016.
A new version 5.1.3 has been released 6 days ago.
Can we expect anything in a reasonable timing or do we have to give up the idea of a portable LO ?

5.1.3

Is it a joke ? The "outdated" log has been amended AFTER my post. When I posted nothing had happened since April, 17th. I am sure you're aware that LibreOffice is used by millions people worldwide. It's already frustrating that only one out of two updates is made portable. If moreover it has to be waited for 10 days the argument for portability should be reconsidered.

2 Hours Before

I was being cheeky because the Outdated thread was updated at 12:51am NY time, about 2 hours before your post at 2:52am NY time. This is when the all 4 packages (standard language set and all language set of both 5.0.6 Still and 5.1.3) were submitted to The Document Foundation for hosting. Once submitted, they take anywhere from 1 to 14 days to post it based on past experience. The apps were built last night as it was the first time I had a block of 3 hours of time to update the installer for the speed issues in removal of languages and build all 4 packages due to being busy after being stuck in jury duty for 2 weeks. It's worth be noting that you're getting this for free and I'm not paid for my time building it, staying up until 1am on a weeknight to do so.

Not 2 Hours Before

Sorry, but when I posted the "Outdated" log was still stating "5.1.2 John building". I can't see the interest I would have had to post a outdated and useless comment. I appreciate that it's a lot of work and you're doing it for free but if it's not possible for you and the Document Foundation to reduce the delay, it has to be explained so that users have the choice to decide on other alternatives. Thank you anyway, I understand it's not impossible that there is a 5.2.0 fresh version before we finally get an update to 5.1.1 portable. It's better to know it.

5.2.0 Not Released

5.1.3 is Fresh. 5.0.6 is Still. Both portable releases will be posted when LibreOffice posts them for official download from their servers. As the official package, we are not permitted to host them ourselves. It usually takes 24-48 hours but has taken up to 2 weeks when they've had issues on their end. 5.2.0 is not scheduled for release until August. I don't think TDF will take that long to post it.

I was in bed a full hour before you posted so could not have physically updated it afterwards. I also checked the Recent Posts list just before logging out and it was empty, so you had not posted yet. The only way it could have shown the old version is if you were not logged in when you viewed it and viewed it within 15 minutes of when I updated it at 12:51am NY time (15 minutes is the cache time for anonymous - aka not logged in - viewers of pages). Unless your browser was caching the page after it should not have (ignoring the directive of cache expiration our server sent). But, hey, it happens Smile

In any case, my apologies for the delay within the last few weeks due to outside influences. It is not a usual occurrence and should be remedied shortly. We have been keeping all these apps up to date in a timely fashion for over a decade, afterall.
