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 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
