LibreOffice 4.2.1 Is Already Available [34971]
Update Will Improve The Experience Of Early Adopters

The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.2.1, three weeks after the availability of LibreOffice 4.2. The first minor release - based on a shorter cycle than expected - solves over 100 problems, introduced by the larger than usual code refactoring of the LibreOffice 4.2 family. The changelog is [url "https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/4.2.1/RC1" "available."]

'LibreOffice 4.2 was extremely ambitious, in terms of code refactoring. Because of this, we planned an extensive quality assurance cycle, based on automated tests followed by QA sprints in December and January, but we were not able to catch all the issues' says Thorsten Behrens, Chairman of The Document Foundation. 'Based on early adopters feedback, developers and QA experts have jumped in immediately, and have solved the most urgent problems in less than three weeks, showing the importance of our large community.'

LibreOffice 4.2.1 is immediately available for download from here.
