Current Beta Version

The latest Beta version of NeoOffice is: 3.3 Beta.

NeoOffice 3.3 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.

  • NeoOffice has built-in update checking, which by default checks for updates once a week.
  • Trinity users can sign up for email notifications of any release or patch announcements posted in this topic by clicking on this link.

Current Patch

Patch-1 is now available.

The new changes included in this patch are listed below:

  • NeoOffice no longer crashes in certain cases when selecting the NeoOffice::Quit or File::Exit menus.
  • Inserting characters using the Mac OS X Character Viewer window once again works properly.
  • Menus are again displayed in the menubar when an embedded object in a document is in edit mode and focus is received from a different application.
  • The Format::Character menu is no longer disabled when an embedded Calc object in a document is in edit mode.
  • Lines in certain charts no longer appear twice as thick as they appear in previous versions of NeoOffice.
  • Pressing the Page Up and Page Down keys when the toolbar’s font combobox is open no longer causes unexpected characters to be displayed.
  • Listboxes in several Base windows are now drawn properly.
  • Clicking and holding but not moving the mouse in an image in a Writer document will no longer delete the image.
  • Prevented NeoOffice's underlying code from triggering occasional hangs during the patch update check process.

Note: Patch-1 requires a full installation of NeoOffice 3.3 Beta and will not install on any version of NeoOffice 3.2.x, 3.1.x or 3.0.x. Patch-1 includes all fixes and additions of previous patches.

Older Patches

NeoOffice 3.3 Beta includes all of the fixes previously available in NeoOffice 3.2.1 with Patch-6, but it requires a new, full download.

Some of the most significant new features in NeoOffice 3.3 Beta include:

  • Compatible with Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion and Gatekeeper
