Can happens that update goes wrong or there is some bug that makes LibreOffice not good or unusable for the user.

Some way for return to the previous version I think would be nice for the users.

Do you think this is doable?
Comment 2 m.a.riosv 2017-09-13 17:58:51 UTC
Maybe not, but once the users accustomed to autoupdate, how they know the way to go back to a previous version working fine for them and where find the files.

It's not the first comment from users that don't update because there is a bug in the new version.
Comment 3 Markus Mohrhard 2017-09-13 18:00:28 UTC
There is no way to go back with the updater. Install fresh if you need an older version.
Comment 4 m.a.riosv 2017-09-13 18:24:36 UTC
I have done that several times testing the updater version.

But maybe we can think on how the users could find easily at least a help on how to do it.

For me 'AutoUpdate' it a major improvement, maybe the most important for V6, so truly thanks for take care.
