Berlin, September 16, 2021 – LibreOffice 7.2.1 Community, the first
minor release of the LibreOffice 7.2 family targeted at technology
enthusiasts and power users, is available for download from
https://www.libreoffice.org/download/. This version includes 77 bug
fixes and improvements to document compatibility.
For enterprise-class deployments, TDF strongly recommends the
LibreOffice Enterprise family of applications from ecosystem partners,
with long-term support options, professional assistance, custom features
and Service Level Agreements:
LibreOffice Community and the LibreOffice Enterprise family of products
are based on the LibreOffice Technology platform, the result of years of
development efforts with the objective of providing a state of the art
office suite not only for the desktop but also for mobile and the cloud.
Products based on LibreOffice Technology are available for major desktop
operating systems (Windows, macOS, Linux and Chrome OS), mobile
platforms (Android and iOS) and the cloud. They may have a different
name, according to each company brand strategy, but they share the same
LibreOffice unique advantages, robustness and flexibility.
Most significant new features of LibreOffice 7.2
LibreOffice 7.2 Community provides a large number of interoperability
improvements with Microsoft’s proprietary DOCX/XLSX/PPTX file formats:
Writer tables (better import/export and management of table functions,
and better support for change tracking in floating tables); management
of cached field results in Writer; support of spacing below the header's
last paragraph in DOC/DOCX files; and additional SmartArt improvements
when importing PPTX files.
In addition, LibreOffice 7.2 Community offers numerous performance
improvements in handling large files, opening certain DOCX and XLSX
files, managing font caching, and opening presentations and drawings
that contain large images. There are also drawing speed improvements
when using the Skia back-end that was introduced with LibreOffice 7.1.
LibreOffice 7.2 Community is also available natively for Apple Silicon,
a series of processors designed by Apple and based on the ARM
architecture. Because of the early stage of development on this specific
platform, binaries are provided but should not be used for critical
purposes. Software is available from the following page:
