Is there anyway I can update from 1.1 to 1.1.1 using an update installation rather than downloading the whole of the 1.1.1 install program as if I was installing from scratch? In other words treat this as though it were a service pack.

StarOffice 7 does have an upgrade function of sorts in that they issue patches to update. This has 2 issues: By definition, it is a more comple operation and the risks of something going wrong might be a bit higher. Also, if for any reason you need to repair the program, you restore it to its original state and have to install the patch again.

I don't know whether it's on the agenda for OOo. I've not seen it on the target list for OOo2, but then I've not looked very hard at it. If you are running Windows, I know that OOo1.1 will "upgrade" 1.0 but 1.1.1 won't upgrade 1.1.0 as they see themselves as the same version.

One advantage of the "whole application" approach is that it is possible to run different versions side by side so you can keep running the old one whilst evaluating the new. It is a bind, I'm sure, without broadband though.

Use the openoffice setup routine to remove your old version. Make sure that when you see a "delete all files" prompt, you leave it unchecked. That will leave your user files intact. When you install the new version, install it to the same directory so the new version will be configured as the old one.

Only do this if the new version is a "stable" release as opposed to a developer release.

I now have 2 copies of OOo namely 1.1.0 and 1.1.1.
Whilst getting to grips with OOo (just see all my postings!) I configured a whole load of settings eg keyboard shortcuts, quick copy/paste etc etc ...... how can I quickly copy these settings across APART from doing them all manually ?
I thought about copying the common / views .xcu files but there are probably 1.1.1 specific things in there ?

Oh and another thing .... Cool when is 2.0 release due ?
