Win32 RC1 localization update from Linux


We are currently working in a mechanism to udpdate a Win32 build using GNU/Linux. The goal is to be able to update the Linux and Win32 versions of Jambo OpenOffice just using GNU/Linux.

The new build system (Jambo PJ4) uses a already compiled version of Jambo OpenOffice under Win32 and merge the updates of the localized strings (resource files) just using free software.

By having a dual (Win32/Linux) build system running in one Linux machine we aim to be able to re-build Jambo OpenOffice in less than two hours.
