Hi everybody! First of all thanks for the great work on AOO - but...: Why is it such a problem to install a "microupdate" upon an existing AOO installation? This was/is the case unde Windows as well as under Linux and for 4.1.0 as well as for 4.1.1? (During the installation of 4.1.1 under Windows 7 32bit the installation routine tells me to close 4.1.1 and the 4.1.1 quickstarter which i am just about to install...). I guess that I can fix this by uninstalling the existing 4.1.0 and than install the 4.1.1. Can't you see that you are ruining your good work with this update policy? A lot of people will not accept this inconvenient mode of updating their existing AOO-Installation...

You still are not informing us of which OS systems are supported in this update! I have Mac OSX 10.6.8 -- will the new update work with my system?

I believe 4.1.1 is faster. I just installed it this A.M. to check it out and the above is my conclusion.

Hello, I've seen this message yesterday and now I'm a little nerveous, what to do. http://web.nvd.nist.gov/view/vuln/detail?vulnId=CVE-2014-3524 Is there any statement from AOO or IBM to this issue? Or is there any way to prevent? I user OO3.41 an can't update the next few month. Thanks for more information.

I'm having an issue with the Mac downloads. It's not downloading a complete file, and when I think it does, the Macbook says 'Image Not Recognized'... I've never had this issue before... Any idea how to fix?

where the hell is your feedback link? your stupid program doesn't work right. whenever i try to insert pictures into a document, it works for a minute, then it totally rearranges the pictures i tried to add to the page by copy/pasting the previous pic inserted. your dumb office product should allow us to copy/ paste pics so we can make a full sheet of whatever images we want. instead it never works it just rearranges them . The pics do not stick on the page where we put them. There is more to designing a page than mere "insert image". we also have to rearrange them accurately and they have to stick where we move them to. this is entirely frustrating and totally insane. how dare you do this to people. it's outrageous. jerks.
