The current issue of Tips & Advies Internet (in Dutch; <>; only subscribers can access the articles) contains a short article on LibreOffice: "LibreOffice: voor nog meer vrijheid" (i.e. "LibreOffice: for even more freedom").
The article mentions the following new features:
* Writer: better layout and navigation; new and improved import for MS Works, Lotus Word Pro and WordPerfect documents; * Calc: smarter find & replace; handling 1 million rows; better border formatting for cells; sheet tab in new colour;
 * Impress: easier layouting for slides; presenter view;
 * Draw: import and edit SVG;
* in general: import and export features for Google Docs and Zoho Office; easier to use print dialog; online help via WikiHelp.

The article does not mention the DOCX export feature.

The article concludes that the new features are not spectacular and that switching from is not a must. But LibreOffice is worth considering for persons who are looking for a free office suite. The article also points out that a portable version is available at <>.
