The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 3.6.1

Berlin, August 29, 2012 - The Document Foundation (TDF) announces LibreOffice 3.6.1, a new and improved version of the best free office suite ever. It is available for Windows, Mac and Linux, solving a number of issues and regressions, plus further improving the stability of the program. LibreOffice 3.6.1 is offered in over 100 languages, covering all the countries of Europe and the Americas, and many countries in Africa and Asia/Pacific where it is often the only available native language suite.

LibreOffice 3.6.1 is announced within a month after the 3.6.0 release, which brings lots of new features and functionality: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/3-6-new-features-and-fixes/

LibreOffice is quickly becoming the de-facto standard for migrations to free office suites, thanks to the growing feature set and the improved interoperability with proprietary software file formats.

News also comes from the Regione Umbria, the first Italian region to recognize and support ODF in 2007, that has just announced a migration project to LibreOffice, which will start in autumn and involve 5,000 desktops in different organizations. The migration project has launched a blog in Italian at http://libreumbria.wordpress.com/

The Câmara Municipal de Vieira do Minho (county of Vieira do Minho) in Portugal has also announced its migration to LibreOffice: http://www.cm-vminho.pt/index.php?oid=9871&op=all

The growing number of adoptions of LibreOffice by private and public enterprises is testament to the improvements brought to the old code by TDF, thanks to over 500 developers and many testers and translators working on exciting new features, stability and quality.

While preparing the next major version, the LibreOffice community continues to work on the current 3.6 series of its software, and has also produced another maintenance release for the previous 3.5 series, to ensure continuity and stability for adopters.

TDF has also just announced a new “HardHacks” project at http://skyfromme.wordpress.com/2012/08/20/announcing-libreoffice-hardhacks/ and will be reporting progress on this on a regular basis.

LibreOffice 3.6.1 is available for immediate download from: http://www.libreoffice.org/download/
Extensions for LibreOffice are available at: http://extensions.libreoffice.org/extension-center
