COnfirmed w MAS version.
@Steve, Emilio: is this issue exclusive of the App Store version, then? If so, we should probably add András to CC ;-)

does not show a splash screen.
I never bothered to file a bug since in the days of SSD harddrives (and apple does not sell any machine without such a drive) the loading times are so small that showing a splash adds more distraction and irritation than it does anything useful to the user.
So not a MAS exclusive problem.
Okay, this is pretty interesting. Loading LO takes on my 2014 Mac Book Air 1,4 GHz Intel Core i5 with SSD aprox 5 seconds. Because of the SSD you can't analyse, if the computer loads something because Mac OS X doesn't provide any indication. I think a splashscreen would be useful.
oh I can confirm that this is not an excusive problem with the AppStore-Version. It can be reproduced with this version:
CPU-Threats: 4; BS-Version: Mac OS X 10.11.3
Emilio: I disagree on this:
" Loading LO takes on my 2014 Mac Book Air 1,4 GHz Intel Core i5 with SSD aprox 5 seconds. Because of the SSD you can't analyse, if the computer loads something because Mac OS X doesn't provide any indication."
Well, the expected thing is, LO will load. Are you seeing cases where LO is not starting after you clicked the dock icon, or started LO from Spotlight?
Well, i'm thinking about users who haven't very much expert knowledge in handling software. Like my grandma ;) she would click the icon in the Lauchpad (LO not preloaded on RAM). A splash screen would prevent her from trying to launch LO again and again until the first window appears. So a splash screen could be a benefit in Luser-software-experience.

The cause isn't a regression in LO as far I can tell, but a change in MacOS introduced by El Capitan.

Any update with a recent LO version (6.2.8 or brand new 6.3.2)?
I can only reproduce this on subsequent launches of
macOS Mojave 10.14.6 with :
LO Vanilla 6262
In other words, the first time in any window session that I launch LO of any particular version, I get a splashscreen. If I close that instance of LO, remove it from the Dock and restart, I no longer get a splashscreen.
