These are the Release Notes for NeoOffice 2.0 Alpha PowerPC, currently available through the NeoOffice Early Access Program (or via a personal build from the source). Release Notes for NeoOffice 1.2.2, the current freely-available version, can be found here.


Current Early Access Version

The latest Early Access version of NeoOffice is: 2.0 Alpha PowerPC.

NeoOffice 2.0 Alpha PowerPC requires a PPC Macintosh running Mac OS X 10.3 or 10.4; it will not install, nor will it run under "Rosetta", on Intel Macintoshes.

Current Patch

Patch-1 is now available.

The new changes included in this patch are listed below:

  • Fixed an issue where italicizing a line of text would cause it to "stack" characters at the end of the line on top of each other
  • Added shortcuts to the database component to the NeoOffice menu and the Dock menu
  • Allowed double-click opening of NeoBase document in the Finder, and gave those documents an icon
  • Closing the last document with Cmd-W now cloess the grey window
  • Fixed the UI font size
  • Fixed an issue where importing a NeoOffice 1.x profile would cause a "BASIC error" when saving a file
  • Fixed a memory leak

Note: Patch-1 requires a full installation of NeoOffice 2.0 Alpha PowerPC and will not install on any version of NeoOffice 1.x. Patch-1 includes all fixes and additions of previous patches.

Older Patches

NeoOffice 2.0 Alpha PowerPC includes all of the fixes previously available in NeoOffice 1.2.2, but it is based off of the 2.0.2 codebase and requires a new, full download.
