Hi, I have and currently using NO3.1.2

About month ago, I started to receive NO upgrade notice for new 3.2 and was directed to NO site for download. But it only allowed download with donation. I thought it's new version and those who donated has privilege upgrading first and free download would come later for everyone. Now NO3.2 has patch2 coming and it still requires donation. Not 100% sure, but it seems no more free NO after 3.1

Anyone confirm this?

Looks like a donation is required, but I only gave it a cursory search and I didn't see any way around the donation system.

Good to know and all the power to them.

I use NeoOffice, but I don't plan on donating to the project. I'd rather spend $79 and get iWork if a donation is mandatory. I'll just keep running my current version of NeoOffice for now.

Looks like 3.2 is only in Beta right now and they are making Beta a donor only. Now if you wanted to try a new office suite I endorse LibreOffice personally.

There's always OpenOffice (www.openoffice.org). Not quite as Mac-like as Neooffice, but it is essentially the same and does not appear to require a donation.
