More team-mates needed

American Football Team

At Apache OpenOffice we are looking for further team-mates and here especially for developers:

  • Are you a software developer with C++ skills?
  • Or do you have expertise in building software?
  • Are you additionally experienced as lead technical writer?
  • Do you like to contribute to open source projects?
  • And are you proficient in written technical English?

If this is the case then come and join us in helping Apache OpenOffice to thrive. Subscribe to the recruitment mailing list and introduce yourself. We will help you get started.

All contributions are welcome and valued. Established contributors have the opportunity to become committers at the Apache Software Foundation, and thus get several benefits and the recognition from other community members for the value of their open source contributions.

It doesn't exist as a slogan in 1-2 sentences but the following short statements can be referred to as "The Apache Way":

  • collaborative software development
  • commercial-friendly free and open source license
  • consistently high quality software
  • respectful, honest, technical-based interaction
  • faithful implementation of standards
  • security as a mandatory feature

When you like to work and code independently from any commercial influence, so that you want try your own things, then this is your way - The Apache Way.

Please also visit our "Get involved" webpage as it provides you with much more information.

Happy to hear from you soon.

Stop the lazy season, start changing

Keep calm and embrace change

It's time to write about new things that happen here in the Apache OpenOffice project.

At first, we want to let you know about new releases. The first will be the bugfix release 4.1.3 that will tie in directly with the current version. It's already in the cooking pot but needs some tasing and refinement before we will serve it. The next will then be the follow-up release 4.1.4 with further fixes.

When you now think "hm, only fixed bugs? Nice, but what about more?" then please be patient. We are also planning a release afterwards with more changes. As these are not finally certain - number as well as size - even the version number is not yet written in stone.

More news will follow. But this needs further blog posts.
