Current Version

The latest version of NeoOffice is: 3.1.2.

NeoOffice 3.1.2 requires a PPC or Intel Macintosh running Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher. Some Aqua features will appear differently depending on your version of Mac OS X.

You can find the MD5SUMs for current NeoOffice downloads (main binary, language packs, and patches) on the NeoOffice MD5 Checksums page.

Current Patch

There is no patch available for NeoOffice 3.1.2.

Older Patches

NeoOffice 3.1.2 includes all of the code in NeoOffice 3.1.1 with Patch-2 plus fixes for several bugs reported by our users after NeoOffice 3.1.1 Patch-2 was released.

Unfortunately, there is no patch available to upgrade NeoOffice 3.1.1 installations to NeoOffice 3.1.2. The bug fixes that we made after NeoOffice 3.1.1 with Patch-2 was released are too large to include in a patch. As a result, NeoOffice 3.1.1 users will need to download and install NeoOffice 3.1.2.

Below is a list of the bugs in NeoOffice 3.1.1 with Patch-2 that we fixed in NeoOffice 3.1.2:

  • Fixed a bug with the behavior of Home and End keys in Calc
  • Fixed a crash when opening a certain .doc file
  • Fixed a possible crash when pasting web content into a Writer document
  • Fixed an issue where Arabic letters would appear disconnected with Geeza Pro on Mac OS X 10.6
  • Fixed a bug where glyphs appeared misaligned in the Special Characters window
  • Fixed an issue where rotated text in Impress documents would appear incorrectly when exported to PDF
  • Fixed rounding problems in PDF export code that caused poor kerning in PDFs using the Garamond Premier Pro font
  • Fixed a bug in subscript kerning in Impress
  • Various fixes to support running under Apple’s latest Java Developer Preview for Mac OS X 10.6

New Features in NeoOffice 3.1.2

If you have not downloaded a release of NeoOffice since version 3.0.2, there are several new features in NeoOffice 3.1.1. Some of the most significant include:

  • Security and Stability Improvements
    • Temporary files are encrypted when FileVault is enabled
    • Fixes for bugs that cause embedded images to be lost after saving Writer or Impress documents
  • NeoOffice Mobile menu is now available when no documents are open
