1.9.106 seems to be out on some servers since May 27 (for over 10 days) even in some obscure lanugages as well (like my own, Hungarian) - BUT only for linux and gentoo and freebsd etc.
Does anybody happen to know if (at last) there will ever be a solid possibility for poor, looked-down-upon Windows users (like myself) to download a normal English version of any coming version from a well-known place like Download Central a bit sooner?

Well, just another proof that Linuxians are the good children Very Happy
Windowsians the bad ones Evil or Very Mad
But what are OpenOfficeorgian developers then? Mad

Not quite sure what you mean, I'm actually using Windows and there are Windows versions among others on the URL I posted although usually the Linux ones appear earlier - i found it in a thread on the main OOo site, don't know why it has linux in the address unless it's to confuse people?

Thank you Michael, you were right on both counts. On my first attempt I only went as far as Build 1 and 2 under SRCxxx under... Linux...
So the exe files are there, confusing perhaps not only me. For me at least nobody ever called a Windows file a "Build" let alone "SRC..."
I think there seems to be some problem with those people who put the new versions sometimes here sometimes there, now (for quite some time) calling them 1.9.xxx but much before that already declaring it 2.0 Beta and still leaving those out of date links littering about everywhere.
I will put up a link in a new thread pointing to this place.

Too bad there's any Swedish languagepacks at the URL. Luckily the language pack for 1.9.104 from the OOo website also works on later versions

RPM's and DEB's. Shows that pestilence on the part of some users has helped.

Edit: Also the Windows version comes as a self extracting EXE file. The problem with this is that it does not remove the temporary files, many users will just leave them not knowing that they're there. The download is smaller by about 7Mb but the installation process is little better than before. OK, so there'll no longer be complaints from people who can't run the installer because they haven't read the instructions but they'll have left over insttallation files. It would be better if the installer worked like the 1.1.4 build available from Digital Distribution. It's only 45Mb and removes the temporary files too.

Something I've noticed about these builds. They don't have the Sun or beta stamps on the splashcreens.

Also it's good to see that there are more language packs and full localisations than before. This shows that the native language projects are nearing completion of 2.0 localisation. I've finally managed to get a GB-en build so no more Americanisms!

Where are the temporary files stored?

Wherever you specfied suring the extraction process. This is why it isn't that great an idea as people may leave the files accidentally. If you can't find the files then search your file system for openoffice*.cab.

Has any of this build comes with the new installer yet? ( I read somewhere that they could get the distribution size downto below 50 Mb )

And also do they allow to choose not install Dbase? Is the only application i dont use. But i am forced to install everytime.

There is a new self extracting Windows EXE that's a couple of Mb smaller than the ZIP. It doesn't remove the setup files though.

That would be the 1.1.4 self-extractor available at Digital Distribution. That is a far better Windows installer and I would hope that something like that gets used for OOo 2.0 as it removes the setup files too.

You can choose not to install BASE during the installation. Do a custom installation and unselect BASE although it'll only save you a few Mb.
