MS Windows and Linux Evaluation Versions Released!

As a number of volunteers has expressed their interest to evaluate our development releases, we have decided to make the development repository freely available. From today, you can download our internal releases of our Jambo OpenOffice (Windows and Linux) from http://stats.tix.or.tz/jambo. The last release is Build17 that contains almost 85% of all the english content translated to swahili. Build17 (known as God Jul) includes: Jambo Spellchecker, Native Swahili Locale and Swahili Installation.

The website is available to any ISP connected to the Tanzanian Internet Exchange (TIX). Download the software here

A detailed description of the status of each of the strings (20041213) is available here

If you have downloaded JamboOpenOffice please let us know so we include you to our list of evaluators. For feedback and bug reports concerning the localization contact: aep@it46.se

The production release will be available in February 2005 for both Microsoft and GNU Linux.

The Win32 version of Jambo OpenOffice (Build17_win32 God Jul) was compiled in Stockholm (Sweden) between the 5th and 7th of January 2005 in a Celeron 700 Mhz with 256 Megs of RAM. The whole compilation process took 56 hours.
