We’re still working on providing the artifacts on Maven Central.

Unfortunately, there seem to be a fatal error on version 2.3, which appears during loading the extension. There is a popup coming up, showing tons of errors. After that, the language tool menue appears in both applications, OpenOffice and LibreOffice, but is not working properly. The extension also does not appear in the extension list to de-install. I have taken a snapshot of the error dialog for reference that comes up after I tried to install your new extension version.
Please look here:

I am running LibreOffice/Openoffice with the latest versions on a MAC, Java 7, version 40.

Hope you can find and fix this issue.

version is selected in LibreOffice/OpenOffice under Tools -> Options ->

I have the same problem and the same configuration as Thomas.
Mac, Java 7 installed and activated, but does not work.

Apparently there is a problem with Java 7 and LibO on Mac. See:
For the moment, you can download older versions of LanguageTool from the download section.
