Dear Community,

The Document Foundation is pleased to announce the second beta of the
upcoming LibreOffice 4.2.0

Please be aware that 4.2.0 beta2 is a prerelease version and not
suitable for production use yet, you should continue to use
LibreOffice 4.1.3 for that.

However, as it installs alongside the stable version, you're
encouraged to give it a try and participate in the BugHunt event that
runs from Dec 06-08
(see https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/BugHunting_Session_4.2.0 for details)

The release is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X from our QA
builds download page at


4.2.0 Beta2 is also available as a 64bit version for Mac OS X 10.8 or newer.

Should you find bugs, please report them to the FreeDesktop Bugzilla:


A good way to assess the release candidate quality is to run some
specific manual tests on it, our TCM wiki page has more details:

Let us close again with a BIG Thank You! to all of you having
contributed to the LibreOffice project - this release would not have
been possible without your help.

On behalf of the Community,
