You use Windows 7 and LibreOffice 7.1 doesn't start

If you use Windows 7 and LibreOffice 7.1 doesn't start there, then possibly you have Windows 7 without update. For fixing that issue please install Windows 7 update as it wrote in LibreOffice 7.1 Release Note:

Because of updated Python's change bpo-36085, LibreOffice now requires KB2533623 on Windows 7. The mentioned update is not directly available from Microsoft anymore, but KB3063858 (32-bit / 64-bit) may be used, that superseded the older one (details in tdf#144902).

What did Hamsters team do for last 20 days as LibreOffice QA?

As I wrote before, the Hamsters QA team is trying to decrease a number of unconfirmed bug reports in LibreOffice's Bugzilla. There are 20 persons in the team.

Let's see what they did for last 20 days:

1. They learned about LibreOffice

2. They know about QA process in our project now

3. They triaged around 200 bug reports

4. They confirmed around 100 bug reports

Next step as I see it is a getting knowledge about regression analize and doing bisect for bug reports with bibisectRequest keyword.

Hamsters QA team are trying to decrease a number of unconfirmed bug reports in LibreOffice's Bugzilla right now

I found an interesting Russian site and Telegram channel where newbies QA try to get some experience in QA process for free. Its name is Хомячки (Hamsters). You can ask admins to create a group for testing of anything and if someone want they will test your software (mobile, web, desktop or something) for you.

I asked there if someone want to test LibreOffice and many people said yes. So, today we have the group of Russian newbies QA who are triaging bug reports in our Bugzilla. We have a goal - to have minimal number of unconfirmed bug reports in end of August 2021 as possibly.

I hope it will be an excellent experience for Russian newbies QA and LibreOffice will get a big help in its QA process.

Hey, Lubuntu maintainners! Please build LibreOffice with vcl:kf5 instead vcl:qt5!

I should ask you Lubuntu maintainers: please build LibreOffice with vcl:kf5 instead vcl:qt5. Because LibreOffice's vcl:qt5 backend still buggy and unstable. Look at it:


I just tried to use Lubuntu 21.04 beta, opened LibreOffice Writer and I wanted increase a scale of the page. So you can see what I saw: wrong vertical rule, ugly page view, etc.
