Current Version

The latest version of NeoOffice is: 3.1.1.

NeoOffice 3.1.1 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.


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.

Current Patch

3.1.1 Patch-17 is now available. The new changes included in this patch are listed below:

  • Added support for Mac OS X Services that modify the selected text
  • Fixed a bug where Calc resize guidelines disappear when resizing selected columns
  • Fixed a highlighting artifact in merged cells
  • Fixed a possible crash when undoing paste in merged cells
  • Fixed a problem where Calc native highlighting did not display when row height is reduced
  • Fixed an issue where the Paste Special menu item did not recognize tab delimited text
  • Fixed a bug where the “Merge and Center Cells” toolbar button was disabled when cells were selected using keyboard
  • Fixed a problem where Calc did not recalculate cells containing the INDIRECT() function
  • Fixed a crash when opening certain master documents

Note: 3.1.1 Patch-17 requires a full installation of NeoOffice 3.1.1 and will not install on any version of NeoOffice 3.0.x or NeoOffice 3.1.1 Beta Early Access. Patch-17 includes all fixes and additions of previous patches.

Older Patches

NeoOffice 3.1.1 includes all of the code in NeoOffice 3.1.1 Beta plus fixes for several bugs reported by our users after NeoOffice 3.1.1 Beta was released.

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

Below is a list of the bugs in NeoOffice 3.1.1 Beta that we fixed in NeoOffice 3.1.1:

  • Fixed a bug where it was not possible to cycle through more than 2 open documents with certain keyboard settings
  • Fixed an issue where Writer frame resize handles remained on screen
  • Fixed a crash when printing with Java 1.4.2
  • Fixed a possible crash when saving documents
  • Fixed an issue where a missing glyph could cause PDF export to fail
  • Fixed a bug that caused Services menu items to always be disabled

New Features in NeoOffice 3.1.1

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:

  • Based on the 3.1.1 codebase
  • Added support for "Look Up in Dictionary" context menu item in Writer to look up a word's definition, if it exists, in Mac OS X's Dictionary application
  • NeoOffice Mobile enhancements
    • Users can view 10 versions of each NeoOffice Mobile file
    • The NeoOffice Mobile window is collapsible
    • The NeoOffice Mobile menu uses less space in NeoOffice's menubar
