Posted on: 08/18/2004 05:41 PM build 1.3.0 is now available

This package contains Desktop integration work for, several back-ported features speedups, and a much simplified build wrapper, making an OO.o build / install possible for the common man. It is a staging ground for up-streaming patches to stock OO.o.

This release - being the first of a relatively large back-port, plus 6 weeks of hacking, is likely to introduce some regressions. Naturally - we're very interested in knowing where they are. Please file bugs (with patches). Having said that, it includes a lot of un-missable desktop integration work.
