It is a kinds of rush for this new release. more bug fixes on it.
During past three years, Apache OpenOffice Project released only three maintenance version. The main competitor, LibreOffice has 14 releases in 2015. Based on the requirement from ASF, at least one release per month is minimum.
I used Apache OpenOffice many years. I can not remember when I switch to LibreOffice. Maybe 2014.
Even I use LibreOffice for two years. I still hope Apache OpenOffice can continue developing its new version. I believe competition makes a better world, including software we use.
New Apache OpenOffice can be download here. Release notes here.

I have already switch my tracking code from the original old code to Universal Analytics code. Nothing need be changed on my sites. The only benefit form the official release is, more features come out.
Feature parity with Classic Analytics, new reports, better user-centric analysis
When Google first introduced Universal Analytics and ran the beta trial, the number one request from users was for full access to all Google Analytics features and tools. Bringing Universal Analytics out of beta means that all the features, reports, and tools of Classic Analytics are now available in the product, including Remarketing and Audience reporting.
Yes, Audience reporting is back.
Time Zone Based Processing: Fresher, more timely data
Updates to the Measurement Protocol: User Agent / IP Override
I will keep using Google Analytics for web site logging and analysis. It is a great tool for free.
