LibreOffice 4.3.2 is RC, (though the stable is coming, dated to Jul 27, so there will be a switching back in Beta/Stable status soon.)
If interested, the complete LibO release schedule can be found here.

Sumo links:
LibreOffice | Base | Calc | Draw | Impress | Math | Writer


By the way, is there some kind of scripted limit that marks the v-numbers as beta or stable? (Of course, if it is a business secret, I didn't ask a thing.)
For example, if there is a new version for a software, but it is used by less than 10% for more than 2-3-x days, it will treat it as a beta, but when the number of users goes over 40%, than it will be marked as a stable.

It has been fixed.

We have no "business level" script to do that but i'm currently thinking about something quite similar... but not so easy to implement...

Opera Browser v12.0.xxxx are betas, latest stable is 11.50.1074. Sumo link.
And it looks like you left out the LibreO Writer when you marked the version numbers ^^

I can imagine how difficult it can be only to design the script. Some softwares doesn't have betas at all, some developers release betas very / way to often, and there are also many cases when several users stick with betas for certain softwares. I hope you will manage to write a script that is easy to manage and also flexible :)

Also, thanks for your hard work!

All parts of LibreOffice with v-num 3.4.201 are now considered as stable (though I have no clue why does the stable version uses the same version number as the former RC1, when the RC2 was numbered 3.4.202).
