[tdf-announce] LibreOffice 4.2.1 is already available to improve the experience of early adopters


Berlin, February 20, 2014 - The Document Foundation announces
LibreOffice 4.2.1, three weeks after the availability of LibreOffice
4.2. The first minor release - based on a shorter cycle than expected -
solves over 100 problems, introduced by the larger than usual code
refactoring of the LibreOffice 4.2 family. Changelog is available here:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/4.2.1/RC1.

"LibreOffice 4.2 was extremely ambitious, in terms of code refactoring.
Because of this, we planned an extensive quality assurance cycle, based
on automated tests followed by QA sprints in December and January, but
we were not able to catch all the issues", says Thorsten Behrens,
Chairman of The Document Foundation. "Based on early adopters feedback,
developers and QA experts have jumped in immediately, and have solved
the most urgent problems in less than three weeks, showing the
importance of our large community."

LibreOffice 4.2.1 and LibreOffice 4.1.5 will be on stage at CeBIT in
Hannover from March 10 to March 14 (Hall 6, Booth H14). In addition,
Florian Effenberger and Italo Vignoli will speak about LibreOffice at
the Open Source Conference.
