These are the Release Notes for NeoOffice 3.3 Beta 2, currently available for testing. Release Notes for NeoOffice 3.1.2, the current stable version, can be found here.


Current Beta Version

The latest Beta version of NeoOffice is: 3.2 Beta.

NeoOffice 3.2 Beta requires an Intel Macintosh running Mac OS X 10.5.8 or higher. Some Aqua features will appear differently depending on your version of Mac OS X.

Current Patch

Patch-1 is now available.

The new changes included in this patch are listed below:

  • Fixed a crash when removing or disabling a font in Font Book while NeoOffice is running
  • Printing large document with many images no longer uses excessive memory
  • Fixed a bug where accessing menubar while printing causes hanging
  • Fixed an issue where native comboboxes and listboxes do not paint properly on Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion”
  • Fixed a problem where the menubar does not update when changing active window on Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion”

Note: Patch-1 requires a full installation of NeoOffice 3.2 Beta and will not install on any version of NeoOffice 3.1.x, 3.0.x or 2.x. Patch-1 includes all fixes and additions of previous patches.

Older Patches

3.2 Beta Patch-2: The new changes included in this patch are listed below:

  • Stopped a possible “snapping back” behavior when resizing a window by dragging the left edge on Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion”.
  • All non-floating windows with titlebars now have rounded bottom corners when running NeoOffice on Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion”.

3.2 Beta Patch-1: The new changes included in this patch are listed below:

  • Improved the first-run experience on Mac OS X 10.7 “Lion” Macs that do not have Java installed.
  • Prevented a hang on Mac OS X 10.6 when closing Image Capture’s dialog with the close button.
  • Fixed a hang when dragging the file proxy icon in the titlebar to the same or another NeoOffice window.
  • Fixed a bug that had prevented dragging items from the Media Browser to NeoOffice documents.

NeoOffice 3.2 Beta Early Access includes all of the fixes previously available in NeoOffice 3.1.2 with Patch-5, but it requires a new, full download.

New Features in NeoOffice 3.2 Beta

If you have not downloaded a release of NeoOffice since version 3.1.2, there are several new features in NeoOffice 3.2 Beta. Some of the most significant include:

    • Text layout and rendering
    • Copy and paste
    • Drag and drop
