[tdf-announce] The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice 4.0.4


Berlin, June 19, 2013 - The Document Foundation (TDF) announces
LibreOffice 4.0.4, for Windows, OS X and Linux, the fourth minor release
of LibreOffice 4.0 family and the last before the announcement of
LibreOffice 4.1 in late July.

LibreOffice 4.0.4 features many improvements in the area of
interoperability with proprietary document formats. This ongoing
activity has been instrumental for the choice of LibreOffice by all
major migration projects to free software since early 2012, including
several central and local governments in Europe and South America.

LibreOffice 4.0.4 also solves a number of bugs and regressions over the
previous release, thanks to the work of QA volunteers. On June 20, the
team is launching a 15 day Bug Triage Contest to prepare for the release
of LibreOffice 4.1. Details here:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/QA/Projects/Bug_Triage_Contest. The
top 5 triagers - amongst the known ones - and the first 10 new
contributors will win a TDF/LibreOffice T-shirt.

LibreOffice 4.1 will introduce many new and exciting features, which are
listed here: https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/ReleaseNotes/4.1
(including the long awaited font embedding in documents, which is
pushing forward the Open Document Format).

In addition, there is a massive amount of improvements less visible to
end users but equally important, as cumulatively they add up to a
code-base that is far easier to understand and contribute to:
