Hello and thank you in advance for your help,

I understand that the latest version of LibreOffice is 6.3. I have version 6.2 and would like to update to the most recent version (6.3).

My OS is Windows 7 64bit.

Thank you. WLawr

Additional information: When I attempt to update, I receive the message that I already have the current version. My attempt to update is made by "checking for updates" in the HELP menu. WLawr

do not use Help -> Check for Updates(never saw this dialog showing anything else than LibreOffice x.y is up to dateand there are some discussions that this functionality is under developement). Download from and manually install.

@WLawr Please be aware that the current v6.3.0 is for early adopters and almost certainly has various bugs. The slightly older v6.2.6 is intended for corporate users and others who require stability and reliability. Take your choice, wisely.

That just means that your LO is always up-to-date ;-)

It works; it would never offer an upgrade from a Still branch to a Fresh branch. It only offers an upgrade after a new version has been published for a couple of weeks (to allow for some initial testing of a just-released package before being rolled out to 100% of systems, and to decrease server load a bit). The development related to the functionality is about auto-update, i.e. removal of need to download the full installer, and run it from outside of the application.
