Das wurde, mit Verlaub gesagt, ja nun auch wirklich langsam Zeit! :D
(Ist zwar nicht die neueste Meldung, aber man kann ja nicht immer alles sofort lesen…)
Starting with milestone DEV300 m11, Sun (Hamburg) release engineering will regularly build OpenOffice.org for the Linux x64 (aka AMD64, aka EM64T) platform with every new milestone. We have promised this a long time ago, I’m glad that it finally happened. The main purpose is, naturally, to find 64 bit specific build- and obvious runtime problems during the initial milestone build and “smoke test”. This should hopefully ease the burden of the maintainers of the OOo 64 bit ports.
We plan to publish 64 bit Linux OOo installation sets with one of the next DEV300 developer snapshots. Many thanks go to the original porters, Caolan, Jan (Kendy), MartinK, Pavel, Stefan and others who did great work here.
* are targeted for Linux x64 systems with libc-2.3.6 or newer
* will work with 64 bit Java runtimes – at least jre-1.5, I’ve tested it with the latest jre-1.6, a recent gij should work as well
* are build with “vanilla” gcc-2.4.3 and the compiler provided STL
