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.

New Version of LibreOffice - 4.2 [34672]
Focusing On Performance And Interoperability, And Improving The Integration With Microsoft Windows

The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.2, a new major release targeted to early adopters and another significant step forward for the best free office suite ever. LibreOffice 4.2 features a large number of performance and interoperability improvements targeted to users of all kinds, but particularly appealing for power and enterprise users. In addition, it is better integrated with Microsoft Windows.

Calc has gone through the largest code refactoring ever, giving major performance wins for big data (especially when calculating cell values, and importing large and complex XLSX spreadsheets), while an optional new formula interpreter enables massively parallel calculation of formula cells using the GPU via OpenCL. The latter works best with a Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) such as the new AMD Kaveri APU.
