Over 19,000 commits from 300 developers in the last 12 months

Berlin, October 28, 2015 - LibreOffice 5.1 has officially entered the
final stage of development with the release of the Alpha version, which
is available to technology enthusiasts and community members for the 1st
Bug Hunting Session organized from Friday, October 30, to Sunday,
November 1.

LibreOffice 5.1 starts twice as fast than the previous version, and adds
to the usual incremental interoperability improvements with MS Office
file formats (including MS Office 2016) some nice features, such as the
Chart Sidebar to change settings in a more intuitive way, an easier
workflow with Google Drive, OneDrive and SharePoint, and a Style Menu in
Writer which will help user to access this fundamental LibreOffice feature.

The first release candidate of LibreOffice 5.1 will be available in mid
December, and will be the first version to offer a good overview of all
the features for product reviews and deployment evaluations (not to be
used for the production of real documents).

In January 2016, a second and a third release candidate will come before
the final availability of the application in early February, just after
FOSDEM 2016 (where LibreOffice developers will provide all the technical
details about the new and improved software features).

During the last 12 months, around 300 developers have hacked the
LibreOffice source code, providing over 19,000 commits (corresponding to
a weekly average of 375 commits).
