Berlin, July 4, 2019 – The Document Foundation announces LibreOffice
6.2.5, the fifth bug and regression fixing release of the LibreOffice
6.2 family, targeted at tech-savvy individuals: early adopters,
technology enthusiasts and power users. Users in production environments
can start evaluating LibreOffice 6.2.5.
LibreOffice’s individual users are helped by a global community of
volunteers: https://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/community-support/. On
the website and the wiki there are guides, manuals, tutorials and
HowTos. Donations help us to make all of these resources available.
LibreOffice users are invited to join the community at
https://www.libreoffice.org/community/get-involved/, to improve
LibreOffice by contributing back in one of the following areas:
development, documentation, infrastructure, localization, quality
assurance, design or marketing.
LibreOffice 6.2.5 provides many bug and regression fixes over the
previous version, contributed by a thriving community of developers,
which are described in the change log pages:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/6.2.5/RC1 (changed in RC1)
and https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/6.2.5/RC2 (changed in RC2).
LibreOffice 6.2.5 still represents the bleeding edge in term of features
for open source office suites, but may also be considered for enterprise
class deployments. In early August, when LibreOffice 6.3 will be
released, LibreOffice 6.2.5 will replace LibreOffice 6.1.6 as the best
choice for production environments.
Organizations looking for an enterprise class application backed by
support and service level agreements (SLA) should source a LibreOffice
LTS (Long Term Supported) version from those TDF Advisory Board members
who provide this product
Also, value-added services for enterprise class deployments – related to
software support, migrations and training – should be sourced from
Sourcing software and/or services from the ecosystem of certified
professionals represents the best support option for enterprises
deploying LibreOffice on a large number of desktops. In fact, these
activities are contributed back to the project under the form of
improvements to the software and the community, and trigger a virtuous
circle which is beneficial to users and all other stakeholders.
Availability of LibreOffice 6.2.5
LibreOffice 6.2.5 is immediately available from the following link:
https://www.libreoffice.org/download/. Minimum requirements for
proprietary operating systems are Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 and Apple
macOS 10.9. Builds of the latest LibreOffice Online source code are
available as Docker images: https://hub.docker.com/r/libreoffice/online/.
LibreOffice Online is fundamentally a server service, and should be
installed and configured by adding cloud storage and an SSL certificate.
It might be considered an enabling technology for the cloud services
offered by ISPs or the private cloud of enterprises and large organizations.
