Rizal Muttaqin has added a new icon theme into LibreOffice. Its name is Sukapura. That icon theme will be a default theme for a new LibreOffice installation in macOS. It looks very nice for me.
The Sukapura icon theme will available in future LibreOffice 7.0 release.
But, if you want, you can install it right now using a Rizal's extension.

Navigator imprevements by Jim Raykowski

Jim Raikowski, one from LibreOffice's developers, has made many very nice Navigator improvements for Writer and Calc.
- Navigator's categories are gray if they don't have any items. It works in Writer and in Calc Navigators.
- New items Go To, Edit, Delete, Rename were added for all objects context menu in Writer's Navigator (Headings, Tables, Frames, Images, etc.)
- New items Promote/Demote level and Promote/Demote chapter were added to Headings context menu in Writer's Navigator
- Added a new feature "Outline tracking" for Headings in Writer's Navigator. You'll can find it in Hedings context menu in the Navigator. It can be in three states: Default, Focus, Off. Try click by your mouse in several place in your big text document with many headings. You'll see that Headings in Navigator will be selected automatically according to text cursor position.
- It was replaced the navigation toolbox with the navigate by elements control. 
It all will be available in future LibreOffice 7 release in early August 2020. But you already can try it right now if you'll install a LibreOffice's daily build from https://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/master/current.html.
Thanks Jim for your great work!

Problem with LibreOffice installed with SiGUI

This note is more for QA people in LibreOffice project. 
If you test LibreOffice in Windows then possibly you use the SiGUI tool for parallel installing of many versions of LibreOffice.
Some days ago I got a crash in current developer build (future LibreOffice 6.5) that was installed with SiGUI. Nobody could repro that crash, but I got it every time. Deleting of user profile have not help. I always installed LibreOffice for testing into the same directory on top of old version. It was a reason for my problem! A crash disappeared only after LibreOffice installing to another clean directory.
So better install LibreOffice for testing with SiGUI only in clean path and if you want use for it only one directory, then delete all subdirectories and all files from it before install.
