Current Version

The latest version of NeoOffice is NeoOffice 2017.33.

NeoOffice 2017.33 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.


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 for update announcements.

2015.5 Classic Edition: This version fixes the following bug:

  • In compressed and stretched vertical text, NeoOffice would compress or stretch Chinese, Japanese, and Korean characters horizontally instead of vertically.
  • In fontwork objects that have multiple lines of text, NeoOffice would draw all but the first line of text too far to the right.
  • NeoOffice would sometimes hang when opening .odb files.
  • When using an 800 x 600 or smaller monitor, NeoOffice would cut off the buttons at the bottom of tall dialogs.

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 scaling the width setting set to greater than 100% wider than normal.

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.
