a series of frequent updates to our feature-packed 4.0 branch. Please

you should continue to use LibreOffice 4.0.2 for that.

Dear Community,

due to a build issue on Mac, that resulted in non-working python
extensions, just pushed and published new Mac x86 install sets for
4.0.3 RC1. The source tarballs, lang packs and all other platforms
remain unmodified. Apologies for the mistake.

With kind regards,

-- Thorsten
