Berlin, March 19, 2020 – The Document Foundation announces the
availability of LibreOffice 6.4.2, the 2nd minor release of the
LibreOffice 6.4 family, targeted at technology enthusiasts and power
users. LibreOffice 6.4.2 includes several bug fixes and improvements to
Mac users will be happy to know that the issue of blurry fonts on Retina
displays has been resolved.
LibreOffice 6.4.2 represents the bleeding edge in term of features for
open source office suites, and as such is not optimized for enterprise
class deployments, where features are less important than robustness.
Users wanting a more mature version can download LibreOffice 6.3.5,
which includes some months of back-ported fixes.
LibreOffice 6.4.2’s change log pages are available on TDF’s wiki:
https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/6.4.2/RC1 (changed in RC1)
and https://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Releases/6.4.2/RC2 (changed in RC2).
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 in business
For enterprise class deployments, TDF strongly recommend sourcing
LibreOffice from one of the ecosystem partners to get long-term
supported releases, dedicated assistance, custom new features and other
benefits, including Service Level Agreements (SLAs). Also, the work done
by ecosystem partners flows back into the LibreOffice project,
Also, support for migrations and trainings should be sourced from
certified professionals who provide value-added services which extend
the reach of the community to the corporate world and offer CIOs and IT
managers a solution in line with proprietary offerings.
In fact, LibreOffice – thanks to its mature codebase, rich feature set,
strong support for open standards, excellent compatibility and long-term
support options from certified partners – represents the ideal solution
for businesses that want to regain control of their data and free
themselves from vendor lock-in.
