LibreOffice 4.0.5 [32434]
LibreOffice 3.6 series users are strongly encouraged to upgrade

The Document Foundation (TDF) has announced LibreOffice 4.0.5 for Windows, OS X and Linux, the fifth minor release of the stable LibreOffice 4.0 family. Users of the now-end-of-life LibreOffice 3.6 series are strongly encouraged to upgrade.

LibreOffice 4.0.5 fixes more than 90 bugs, many of them in the area of interoperability with proprietary document formats and operating systems. Thanks to the work of our QA volunteers, LibreOffice 4.0.5 also solves a number of regressions from earlier releases. Just recently, the QA community has concluded their first triage contest, thereby cutting down the number of untriaged and unreviewed bugs significantly. That has contributed greatly to an even more confident assessment of the LibreOffice quality.

The new release is available for immediate download.

LibreOffice 4.1: A Landmark For Interoperability [31959]
Improvements bring compatibility with proprietary and legacy file formats to the next level

The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.1, not only the best but also the most interoperable free office suite ever. LibreOffice 4.1 features a large number of improvements in the area of document compatibility, which increases the opportunities of sharing knowledge with users of proprietary software while retaining the original layout and contents.

Interoperability is a key asset for LibreOffice, which is the de facto standard for migrations to free office suites since early 2012. Numerous improvements have been made to Microsoft OOXML import and export filters, as well as to legacy Microsoft Office and RTF file filters. Most of these improvements derive from the fundamental activity of certified developers backing migration projects, based on a professional support agreement.

Instrumental for interoperability are also new features such as font embedding in Writer, Calc, Impress and Draw - which helps in retaining the visual aspect when fonts used to produce the document are not installed on the target PC - and import and export functions new in Excel 2013 for ODF OpenFormula compatibility.
