We will be making the transition to 10.8.x soon and would like to know what to expect in terms of running LibreOffice.
My understanding is that a clean install of Mountain Lion does not come with Java preinstalled and that we would need to manually install it.
Oracle has recently released its OS X version of Java 7, which they recommend over any Java 6.
I just want to confirm that LO will run properly on 10.8.x with the Oracle Java 7 JRE.

I use LibreOffice 126.96.36.199 with the latest Java 7 on Mac OS X 10.8.1 on hardware from 2008 and 2010.
I cannot confirm that LibreOffice "crashes real often".
However, I work mostly with Calc and once in a while also with Writer.

Libre Office crashes real often, making it useless. Even after I upgraded to the newest version 188.8.131.52 and changed the security setting, it still didn't help. Upgrading my Java didn't help either. When I had Lion it worked fine but the upgrade to Mountain Lion was not good for the program. It's also to bad since it is the only program that I could find that would change my Word Perfect documents to Word or other more feasible word processing programs. right now LO will not run properly on 10.8x with Oracle Java 7 JRE.
LibreOffice is made available by volunteers around the globe, backed by a charitable Foundation. Please support our efforts: Your donation helps us to deliver a better product!
