LIbreoffice Still and Fresh have been switched

Hello,

I downloaded and installed the update for my Libreoffice Still, yesterday after my regular backup.
Today I found out that my vLookup to other files stopped working. Searching for the version number I came to see that I have now 7.4.5 (supposedly "Still") but the version for the "Fresh" type on the download page is 7.4.3 ?
Seems the have been switched and the later version (7.4.5) should be the "fresh" one ...

7.5.0 build issue

Fresh should be at 7.5.0 and I have it built but there's a build issue with the LibreOffice package itself causing it to crash on some Windows 7/8 machines. 7.5.1 fixes this issue but won't be out for a couple weeks. I'll be pushing 7.4.5 to the Fresh channel this week in the meantime. It's tracked here: https://portableapps.com/development/outdated

Thanks for the clarificaction

Thanks for the clarificaction.

But I am not sure about the 7.4.3 version ... If I install that one, will it be "Still" (as I want) or "Fresh" as it says ?
I have had a couple of issues in the past with the "Fresh" build and therefore stick with "Still"

Thanks again

Erich Jess

7.4.5 Still

If you install the LibreOffice 7.4.5 Still package it is Still. The publisher doesn't actually make a distinction other than versions. For example, if they have 7.3.7 and 7.4.4 available and then release 7.5.0, the 7.4.4 release is moved down to the "Still" download. It's the same package. We use the nomenclature Still vs Fresh as we have two different release channels that users can use. They can even use both and they won't interfere with each other. So you're good installing 7.4.5 directly from here or via the platform. When I release 7.4.5 Fresh, it's the same thing as our 7.4.5 Still release, just on a different channel (LibreOfficePortable vs LibreOfficePortablePrevious).

Thanks, I now understand how

Thanks, I now understand how "fresh" moves to "still" down the road. I hoped for a lower version that 7.4.5 to be "still".
After installing 7.4.5 my vLookpus from another file I have been using for nearly 15 years (since July 2008) have stopped updating when I open the respective files Sad

7.3.7

You could grab the old 7.3.7 from our SourceForge archive if you need it for right now. Maybe you can figure out a way to update the lookups for 7.4.5 from there.
