NeoOffice 2017 Beta is a new version of NeoOffice that is based on LibreOffice. While previous versions of NeoOffice were based on the OpenOffice code, NeoOffice 2017 Beta is based on the LibreOffice 4.4 code.

We decided to use the LibreOffice 4.4 code for NeoOffice 2017 Beta because the LibreOffice 4.4 code is able to open and save Microsoft Office .docx, .xlsx, and .pptx documents with far fewer errors than the OpenOffice code. While we initially looked at using the LibreOffice 5.x code for NeoOffice 2017 Beta, LibreOffice 5.x contains numerous changes in menu items, toolbars, and dialogs. Since menu items, toolbars, and dialogs in LibreOffice 4.4 more closely match those in OpenOffice, we chose to use the LibreOffice 4.4 code to make upgrading to NeoOffice 2017 Beta as smooth as possible for NeoOffice and OpenOffice users.

If you are running macOS Sierra, you can download NeoOffice 2017 Beta Professional Edition. Please note that NeoOffice 2017 Beta Professional Edition is not a production release and will likely have many undiscovered bugs. If you are not comfortable using unstable software, we recommend that you download NeoOffice 2017.4 Professional Edition which is our most stable version.

Our plan is to release NeoOffice 2017 Professional Edition in the fall of 2017. NeoOffice 2017 Professional Edition will run on macOS Sierra or higher and will replace NeoOffice Classic Edition. Also, whenever Apple releases the next version of macOS, we plan to release a Mac App Store version of NeoOffice 2017.
