This page provides links to unofficial development snapshot builds.
IMPORTANT: These builds are intended to be used for early testing by other community volunteers. They have no release quality and should not be installed in a production environment. Development snapshots can be unstable and are expected to have bugs.
Please report problems revealed by installation and testing of a snapshot as soon as possible. Found issues should be submitted in the issue tracker. Issues, along with subsequent issue-investigation and -resolution updates, are announced automatically on the ooo-issues mailing list.
The current SVN Revision Number of the repository is used to identify snapshots built from the Subversion Repository that is current as of that revision. The revision numbers are shown in the reporting of individual commits on the ooo-commits mailing list. The commits made between successive snapshots can also be determined by reviewing SVN logs, down to the revision history of individual source-code files.
NOTE: The provided unofficial development builds here should always be based on the same revision number to align and coordinate our early QA efforts. It is not intended to keep older builds at this time for reference.
For the more adventurous there are automated nightly builds provided by the buildbots. They are bleeding edge and might not even work. Don't bother downloading nightly builds if you're unwilling to put up with problems.
These builds are based on the latest SNAPSHOT tag. Currently only the languages that have a complete UI translation are supported and released but more languages will follow hopefully soon.
An overview of fixed issues and the related commits can be found under fixed issues (since AOO 4.0.1).
All necessary information how to verify the signature or file hashes can be found here. Feedback is welcome on the ooo-dev mailing list.

I prepare my source tree to have a fresh clean tree without any output. I update the sources to the revision number that we have agreed on and use the following switches to build the snapshots. I use pre-built versions of dmake and epm. Amd I use the pre-built mozilla libs.
I (Oliver, orw at apache.org) used a pre-built version of dmake and pre-buildt mozilla libraries (main/moz/zipped/). Additionally, I copied the following libraries and files into my clean and fresh source tree:
Since rev. 1296433 I have installed the DirectX SDK. Thus, DirectX is no longer disabled.
I had Visual Studio 2008 Professional installed (from MSDN subscription available for Apache committers). Thus, ALT and ActiveX are not disabled. Applying suggestions from issue 118821 also allows ATL and ActiveX with Visual Studio 2008 Express.
The relevant configure options which I am using are:
Linux build flags for AOO >= 4.0.1
Linux packages were built on CentOS 5 with the following flags:
To speed up the building process I use prebuilt mozilla (built by myself on the same environment).
I (Mouette Yang) build in the platform Solaris 10 u10 8/11 x86, and use SolarisStudio12.3 Compiler:http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/solarisstudio/overview/index.html
Some need build environment tools is placed here:http://www.openfoundry.org/of/download_path/osscd/3.4.0m1_Rev1227012/BuildAOO-Env-GNUtools_solaris_i86pc.pkg
And need subverion can be download in here:http://www.blastwave.org/
Env variables is set:
And my configure options are:
And other need package and developer snapshot's modify, i write a script, can auto deal with these
things until build finish:
Define language list in this file "/DocumentArea/scripts/AOO-LANG"
(if $confarea is /DocumentArea/scripts):
