Hi all,

The tag libreoffice- (AKA 4.4.0 Beta2) on the corresponding
branch libreoffice-4-4 has been created last week.
The branch will be used for fine tuning of the 4.4 codeline.

Branch-off marks feature freeze, see
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan/4.4#4.4.0_release for
the detailed schedule of the 4.4.0 release.

Master will be used for development of LibreOffice 4.5.x

The following rules apply:
    + 4.4.0 beta phase:

        + any bug fixes are allowed without review
        + late features need approval by 3 people with different affiliation

    + 4.4.0 rc phase and later:

        + fixes need approval by one reviewer
        + late features need approval by 3 more people with different

    IMPORTANT: Every developer is responsible for pushing the fixes into all
               appropriate branches. Note that we do not plan any merge
               from this branch to master or vice versa.

    Please, help use to make stable and usable release. If you want to build
    something cool, unstable, and risky, use master.

The 'libreoffice-4-3' branch is still active and will be used for the
4.3.6 bugfix release. Please

Now, if you want to switch your clone to the branch, please do:

./g pull -r
./g checkout -b libreoffice-4-4 origin/libreoffice-4-4

To checkout the tag, use

./g fetch --tags
./g checkout -b tag-libreoffice- libreoffice-

Hopefully it will work for you :-)  Most probably, you will also want to
do (if you haven't done it yet):

git config --global push.default tracking

When you do git push with this, git will push only the branch you are
on; e.g. libreoffice-4-4 when you have switched to it.  This will
save you some git shouting at you.

Linux distro packages might find source tarballs at
They will soon be available from the official page together with the builds.

Attached is the list of changes against 4.4.0 Beta1

Happy hacking,
