Cool and hot times - testing and localization LibreOffice 4.1

Why you will want to read this article soon...
So that were extremely busy weeks for all people active in LibreOffice localization and QA. Today the last translations – many up to 100% – have been pulled and the last triple reviewed code commits were done. And somewhere next week already we expect the release of LibreOffice 4.1.
Many volunteers doing the translations help a lot with testing too. That extremely important job is not something that happens every now and then... it is a continuous task. Beside the translations for the major releases, twice a year. Hard work, but being a part of the community that makes the best free office suite in the world makes it worth of course :)
That was what I felt very strong when reading Michaels blog, some weeks ago, on all the hard work that that the developers are doing on code improvements. Look here for many details: on cleaning, modern and faster code, easier building, automated tests, etc. etc.
As a result enthusiast 'hackers' keep joining the project with a cute EasyHack in LibreOffice or some other task. That makes some extra testing really worth, doesn't it?
Tip: watch out for the announcements that will come with the new LibreOffice. And don't forget then that about half of the good work is done below the surface ;)
