LibreOffice 3.5.5 update
|13th July 2012|
Six weeks As soon as the previous 3.5.4 update arrived, The Document Foundation has released version 3.5.5 of LibreOffice. This fifth maintenance update towards 3.5.x branch of the open source office suite adds no new features, instead it targets fixing nearly 90 bugs.
In accordance with its developers, LibreOffice 3.5.5 features various minor improvements for the Calc spreadsheet program along with the Impress presentation manager, and really should improve the software’s overall stability. Other changes include enhancements to import and export of third-party fonts, and fixes for 13 issues that can have caused the productivity suite to crash when, one example is, exporting to RTF, reading Visio files and saving a document with track-changes enabled. All users should try to upgrade.
Further information about the update, including the whole report on fixes and changes, are located in the RC1, RC2 and RC3 change logs; at the time of writing, the production notes have yet to be updated. LibreOffice 3.5.5 readily available for download for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux on the project’s site which is licensed within the LGPLv3. The project’s next major release, LibreOffice 3.6, happens to be in development and it is expected to arrive “within the next couple weeks”.
