LibreOffice 3.3.1 Released Today

| software | foss |

update 6/11/2024: this is a post from a blog that I contributed to in 2011 called TechHacking, it shut down eventually but I was happy to be able to find some of my work through the internet archive.

Just weeks after the official stable release of LibreOffice 3, The Document Foundation announced a micro-release, version 3.3.1, has been released today. If you have already downloaded version 3 you will not notice any major changes.

This edition has tons of important bug fixes that have been affecting versions of LibreOffice on Mac, Linux, and Windows. There is also overall improved stability. The major change that you will see with this latest update is that there are new icons for all of the various applications that LibreOffice uses.

LibreOffice is staying on track with a very aggressive release schedule. There will be one more “micro-release” next month in preparation for a second feature release which should be appearing some time in May, according to Thorsten Behrens, who is one of the developers.

It is exciting to see LibreOffice under such active development. As future releases come out it will be exciting to see all of the changes that are planned to be implemented. It seems that ever since the The Document Foundation broke free of Oracle and created LibreOffice, there has been a breath of fresh air which has invigorated the development team and has led to many interesting and exciting features. The future possibilities are endless.

If you download and use LibreOffice and enjoy it, perhaps you will consider donating to the Document Foundation who is holding a fund drive this month. All of the money will go to future development, and will make LibreOffice one of the leading Office Suites in both the closed and open source worlds. They have set a goal to receive 50,000 Euros in donations. As of today they already have 45,600! They are very close to reaching their goal, so support open source and donate today.

LibreOffice 3.3.1 is available for download for Mac, Linux, and Windows. You can see the full press release here.
