[edit] Current Version

The latest version of NeoOffice is NeoOffice 2015.1 Classic Edition.

NeoOffice 2015.1 Classic Edition requires an Intel Macintosh running OS X 10.8 - 10.11.

(NeoOffice 3.4.1 is still available for users with Intel Macs running 10.6.8 to 10.7.5; NeoOffice 3.4.1 is not compatible with OS X 10.11 El Capitan.)

You can find the MD5SUMs for current NeoOffice downloads on the NeoOffice MD5 Checksums page.

[edit] Updates

If you want to receive announcements whenever a patch or new release of NeoOffice is available, there are several options available:

  • NeoOffice has built-in update checking, which by default checks for updates once a week.
  • Users can also follow NeoOffice on Twitter or on Facebook at NeoOffice.org for update announcements.

2015.2 Classic Edition: This version fixes the following bugs:

  • When running in full screen mode on OS X El Capitan, NeoOffice would display some dialogs and dropdown lists behind the current document.
  • NeoOffice would draw any text that has its {{prefName|scaling the width} setting set to greater than 100% wider than normal.
  • NeoOffice would generate an empty mail merge if you select the {{prefName|From:} field in the Mail Merge dialog.
  • NeoOffice would hang for a minute or longer when updating links in spreadsheets.

[edit] New Features in NeoOffice 2015 Classic Edition

If you have not downloaded a release of NeoOffice since version 3.4.1, there are several new features in NeoOffice 2015 Classic Edition. Some of the most significant include:

  • NeoOffice is now a 64-bit application instead of a 32-bit application so it does not have any of issues that we found when running NeoOffice 3.4.1 on OS X El Capitan Beta.
  • NeoOffice now uses Oracle's Java SE Development Kit (JDK) so Base users can view and edit NeoOffice, OpenOffice, and LibreOffice database files without having to install Apple's obsolete version of Java.
