    I'm very interested in this as well!

    The repositories have not tracked the 3.4 betas, and have had little change for the last month... Index of /repositories/LibreOffice:

    The announcement from LibreOffice says that 0 point releases are intended for testing and sibsequent point releases for general use; so you may need to install it from Factory if you want it. 3.4.1 is due out at the end of this month.

    Thanks. LibO 3.4 is intended for the early adaptors actually. I"ll wait on 3.4.1

    Yet 3.4.0 is still not in the repos... it is expected to get there at all this month, or will betas and "unstable" now be skipped because of the way LibreOffice releases are now structured?

    It seems the wiki page needs to be reworded to reflect this: LibreOffice - openSUSE

    And a search for LibreOffice packages in Factory do not reveal any new builds: software.opensuse.org: Search Results

    Still anticipating a 3.4 release! Especially now that 3.4.1 is available.

    what features are available in 3.4.1 which are not in, or not working in
    the 3.3.1 release available in 11.4??

    well, if whatever your reason for wanting to run 3.4.1 there is no
    reason not to...just grab and go: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/

    but, make sure to have a way back to stable and productive..

    maybe you misunderstand the basic tenants of this distribution....some
    distros offer a "rolling release" and all throughout the lifetime of any
    particular OS version there will be upgrades of applications added, as
    they become available from the makers..

    i believe Ubuntu is one of the distros which does that..

    openSUSE has not and does not do that....normally, the version of any
    application released with an openSUSE version will remain for the entire
    supported lifetime of the openSUSE version..

    however, security and critical bug fixes are passed to users through the
    update repo....generally those are not new versions of the applications,
    but instead are patches and the resulting patched application has the
    same prime version number..

    occasionally those will be security updates/major bug fixes in the form
    of a new version of an application....for example, firefox recently
    releases a mostly bug and security fix package as a new version
    (5.0)...because of the nature of the fixes it flowed almost immediately
    to the update repo and into 11.4

    but, by no means are all new versions of applications rushed to the
    update repo for general distribution between version releases of
    openSUSE...instead, they flow into the factory repo where they then will
    be tested during the milestone and release candidate series and finally
    released with the next version of openSUSE..

    i suppose eventually (if not already) 3.4.1 will be in factory and the
    follow openSUSE 12.1...but, you should _not_ expect to find it nor
    anything else being releases as a new application version to be
    automatically rolled into an existing version of openSUSE..

    so, now you know why you can stop "wondering why isn't it in openSUSE
    repos yet", because it won't be until it is in the 12.1 repos..

    as previously mentioned, if you need it before then you can download the
    source and build it for yourself..
