[tdf-announce] LibreOffice 3.3.1 is available now


LibreOffice 3.3.1 brings new colored icons and eliminates various problems to improve stability

The Document Foundation maintains its enterprising release schedule

The Internet, February 23, 2011 - The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 3.3.1, the first micro release of the free office suite for personal productivity, to improve the stability of the software and eliminate several bugs and crashes affecting Windows, Linux and MacOS X versions. LibreOffice 3.3.1 also brings new colorful icons based on The Document Foundation branding guidelines, and includes updates to several language versions.

"LibreOffice 3.3 was our very first stable release, and the feedback from users has been extremely positive," says Thorsten Behrens, one of the developers with a seat on the Steering Committee. "We have managed to troubleshoot a large number of bugs within a very short time, in order to maintain our enterprising release schedule. There will be another minor release in a month, before our second feature release in early May."

LibreOffice 3.3.1 has been rolled out only one week after the launch of the funds challenge to collect donations towards the 50,000-euro capital needed to establish The Document Foundation in Germany. An information website has been put online at http://challenge.documentfoundation.org, where you can donate via PayPal or bank transfer.

By just one week after the launch, more than 40,000 euros had been accumulated, bringing the final target very close. All additional funds collected before the closing date of March 21 will be used for operating expenses such as infrastructure costs and registration of domain names and trademarks, as well as for marketing expenses such as travel funding for TDF representatives speaking at conferences, booth fees for trade shows, and initial financing of merchandising items, DVDs and printed material. There is a blog post on this subject: http://blog.documentfoundation.org/2011/02/23/you-are-our-rockstars/.

During next week end, US volunteers from The Document Foundation will be taking part at this year's Southern California Linux Festival (SCALE) in Long Beach, CA, showcasing LibreOffice 3.3.1 for Linux, Windows and MacOS in Booth #4 in the International Ballroom.

The Document Foundation is at http://documentfoundation.org, while LibreOffice is at http://www.libreoffice.org. LibreOffice 3.3.1 is immediately available from the download page: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/.
