If (like me), you're "fortunate" enough to still have some sandybridge graphics lying around (for daily use), and you use LibreOffice impress, then you might have noticed that in recent builds (5.1.x) transitions were mostly broken.

This was occurring because recent changes in the OpenGl backend were not compatible with Intel's Sandybridge graphics (or the other way around, to be technical).

However, as of version 5.2, these transitions all work again! NB: You will need to force OpenGL (even if blacklisted) in the options:
