add a checkbox or slider which version to use.
the latest or the slightly older.
some checkbox or slider to choose which version is wanted.
the update system should only check for that version
User Profile Reset: No
I don’t use LibreOffice for the moment because it lacks several functions I like.
I don’t have a “Help - About LibreOffice”.
I guess this is for Update checker. Please explain better what you want with example versions. looks like WontFix so far.
Mozilla Firefox has the release and the ESR version.
When using the ESR version, the update system checkes only for ESR.
When using the release version, it only checkes for release.
I used LibreOffice years ago, but didn’t find the setting to choose the “ESR“ version of LibreOffice.
If I remember correctly, it was called LibreOffice Still.
The other one was called LibreOffice Fresh.
I want only the Still version.
An update to the updater is currently in discussion. If bug 54242 becomes implemented we do not need to decide whether to include still/fresh.
This is actually how the update check currently works. It's described in bug 97302:
Only if the micro version (the third digit of an available fresh version) is larger or equal the micro version of the installed still version will the user be offered the fresh version:
installed still | available fresh | available still
x.y.z | x'.y'.f | x.y'.s
f >= z → fresh update will be offered
f < z and x.y'.s newer than x.y.z → still update will be offered
otherwise the response will be "up to date/no update available"
however it is unlikely to ever reach the f >= z condition with the release schedule when a user regularly updates.
Ie. with the still version almost always the still version gets offered.
Ohter practical purposes are covered in bug 97302 I'd say.
