need advice on which version I should make for new ISO file, after offline due to hospital visits


OK Marketing people. . .

After a major stretch of time in and out of the hospital and bed-ridden
for the rest of the time, I am starting to get ready to re-start making
LibreOffice DVD ISO files for download.  It has been months since I have
been able to sit at this desktop for more than a few minutes at a time.

I need to get your input on what version[s] I should start with first.  
I hope to start the work the first week in July.

I have to deal with other local things on my large backlog of work that
has been put on hold since the first hospital visit. Then I will be able
to get back to marketing LibreOffice via .iso file downloads and handing
the DVDs out locally to the people/organizations/businesses I have
worked with in the past.

Friday, I was told that I will not need another surgery on my back in
the near future, so I am starting on working on this desktop more every
day.  By the end of the month I should be able to be on it long enough
[over a couple of days] to do all of the work I need to do for the DVD
.iso file and the other local marketing preparation.

So . . .

Any advice on what version I should download the 90+ files [install and
help/language packs] start with for the  English DVD ISO file that I
will make to be downloaded from my Source Forge account?

I than you in advance for any help you can render.

PS.
I am really glad not to be flat in bed, at home or the hospital, for 23+
hours a day. I could not even use my laptops.  My only access to the
world was an Android tablet that was no good for doing any work I do
with my laptops or my main system/desktop.

Hi Tim,

It's great to hear from you and great to hear that you're "back in the
saddle," as it were! It's a bit early for beer, but I'll drink this
glass of water to your health!

Let's see... 5.0 is coming out at the end of July:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan#5.0_release

About a month earlier, 4.4.4 is releasing in the 2nd half of June:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleasePlan#4.4_release

I'd guess that 4.4.4 would probably be your best bet for packaging,
but I'd suggest that you keep your eye on 5.0. As the first in the
release series *and* with a major version bump, it's quite possible
that there may be a few rough edges, but OTOH, it's going to have a
bunch of new improvements (and we all know how much users say they
want shiny new things ;-)

Best,
